I ask the Indulgence of the House this morning to refer briefly to such an event. My state is known as the home of the Mormon people. In a former generation It was the popular thing here and elsewhere to speak in terms of condemnation of their religion, as well as to question their patriotism and tbelr loyalty to our country. However murh men may have disagreed In the past about these questions, I think It will be conceded that no man has yet successfully challenged the broad statesmanship and breadth of vision ot Ilrlgham Young, one of the great leaders of these people. This dauntless pioneer led into a trackless desert the men and women who, tinder his direction, laid securely the foundation of a great State. I rie this morning to speak of one very inconspicuous and minor evidence of this leadership. Urlgham Young fostered and encouraged a one of the auxiliary organisations of the church the Woman's Relief Hoc, ety. With the main purpose ot am that great organization Its charitable and educational work--not now concerned. These women ere advised as one of their minor activities to store wheal, and It Is of this rather unusual activity I wish to speak. In the early days of t'tah's history and in the bumble beginning of the Relief Society, these women gleaned the harvest fields In order that no precious head of grain should be lost. Wheat was so precious to the pioneers that it was used as a It was the standard rf vain by which other medium of exchange. commodities were measured. They hfd little or no other currency. My own mother has related to me more than once her association with and rheerful participation in this work of gleaning the precious yellow grain. loafer on by purchase and donation these women added more repidly to their store of wheat. As the stork grew It was moved from the small www! en granaries belonging to the loetl Relief Society organizations to great sfe and cement eievstors constructed for that purpose and controlled by the women themselves. From the beginning these women were taught that the time would com when every available pound of wheat would he needed to conserve the Nation's life and prevent famine and starvation. It has remained a strongly Intrenched tradition with the women of this organisation, and they believe It to b true today. This spring. In April, there were In the eievstors belonging to the Mormon women of Ctah and other adjsrent Western 8'ates ins,. 51$ tn,hel of first-claLast month the-deoted women felt that the milling wheat. tlm had come for them to use their savings of more than SO years.
