|Item Description||This letter to all members of the State Council of Religious Education was written by W. H. Bayles to accompany the general mailing of the September 1938 Executive Committee meeting minutes (The September 1938 minutes are listed as a separate entry through the Northern Plains People and Places). Bayles discusses three principal topics: liquor legislation, the departure of Roy Long from the position of General Secretary and the creation of the Ad Interim Commission of Five to temporarily fulfill the soon vacated position. The "United Church Front Platform" focuses on liquor laws and is discussed on the second page. Here the Council's four part platform is explained in detail. These points range from padlocking nefarious locations that were used to violate the various laws to giving local control of liquor laws and enforcement to communities themselves.|
