It was Christmas of 1939, and Ida and Viola, my two sisters, were working in Salt Lake City. The next thing I knew I received a letter from Ida telling me of her experience that morning. The LaGrande 2nd Ward, of which I was a member and from which I was leaving for my Mission, gave me a farewell party as we customary in those days.
My brother Alex and his wife had not been to the Temple to have their marriage sealed since she had joined the Church a few years before. Those of us going down to Salt Lake were Alex and Mildred, their two sons, Richard and Gerald, my sister Viola, and Dorothy Richeson, a friend, and myself.
Then, Monday morning, I checked into the Mission Home on State Street for the two weeks training they gave all Missionaries prior to their leaving for their fields of labor. Previous to my going on my Mission and during the time we were making plans to go, I had somewhat of a heavy feeling. Then, the morning of April 25th came and I found myself, along with all, or a lot, of the other Missionaries getting ready to leave on various trains for their mission fields.
Upon arriving in Los Angeles, we were met at the Union Station by the District President of the Los Angeles District, Ferris R.
Later in the afternoon, I took the Pacific Electric Train out to Belflower where I met Elder Archibald, my new companion.
For the first few days of our stay in Belflower, I got to meet a lot of people who were members of the Branch. We often went with President Visser to Long Beach to Leadership meetings as that was their stake Headquarters. Of course, I was ready in the alloted time and on my way to Downey to work with Elder Ray Fransen. Another interesting experience we had was one Sunday when they were having Stake Conference in the South Los Angeles Stake.
After visiting with him all afternoon and again in the evening, after Conference was over, Theron took us home. In a couple of weeks we called back to see if she had read the book and to pick it up if she was through with it. After he left, we went out to Sister Mossa€™s place to break the news to her and her husband, because Elder Holt also was being transfered to Compton, California, and there would be no missionaries in Downey at all. Saturday morning, October 12, President Hagey, my District President, came to Downey to take me to Los Angeles to report to President MacDonald for my instructions about the new district. While in Los Angeles getting instructions from the President, I got to visit some with the other missionaries at headquarters.
President Hagey and I stayed in Los Angeles that night and the next morning he drove me out to Riverside, which I greatly appreciated, as I did not have a car then.
We soon moved our headquarters of the Mission (District) to a better location, and the Missionaries started coming into the District. As soon as I had assigned all of the Elders to their various fields of labor, I wrote to all the Branch Presidents in the District to introduce myself. One of the outstanding experiences I had in that District was holding Cottage Meetings in Hemitt. Needless to say, I was a little nervous also with the minister sitting in the back of the living room staring at me. A few months later, after I had been transferred up to the Bakersfield District, I received a letter from President Choate, saying that the Rev.
I remember the Easter Sunrise Service we held in Hemitt that year as a District Conference. With two carloads of missionaries from our district plus one carload from the mission office, for we invited them out to speak at our conference, plus all of the people from over the district, we had a real conference. At the end of the first month I was out in Riverside, which was the day before I was to expect Mr. About a month later I was down in the Los Angeles area and went out to call on them for a visit. On one of those subsequent visits I remember telling her that I hated to see them wasting their time outside of the Church.
Once, President Durham wrote to me to see if I would come down and speak in the Downey Branch for their Sacrament Meeting. She had originally resigned as pastor of the local United Brethren Church there in Holiday, California when she first decided to join ours; then after backing out of being baptized she went back and accepted the position again.
With this introduction, they all commenced talking at once telling me what a bad thing I was doing, disturbing people who were happy in their own religion until they heard me. The last time I saw her in the mission field was about three months before I was to be released to go home.
While in Riverside, I had the privilege of baptizing a Sister James and her six children into the Church. I have surely been blessed to have the opportunity to meet many of my friends from the mission field. Another interesting experience was when President Blood (Verna€™s next Mission President) called me into his office one day to talk about the Imperial Valley District. Once, when I had gone down there to take over the office from President Burton, I toured the district and visited all the branches in it.
While down there we accompanied one of the local brethren over to Yuma, Arizona to the branch there to speak in Church. I met some wonderful friends down in the Imperial Valley; President Cyril Gardner, and President Lunsford of the El Centro and Brawley Branches.
It was here we met and stayed with a wonderful family by the name of Arthur Lee {LNa€™s note: This man, Arthur Lee was a first cousin to Rhoda Jane Perkins Wakefield, being a descendant of Mosiah Hancock}.


At this time of my life my hair was getting pretty thin in front, and in her conversation she turned to Elder Richards and asked him if he was out of high school. As the month of June was drawing to a close, I received a letter from President Blood transferring me up to organize a new district in Bakersfield, California. They immediately started to explain to me that a€?Eldera€? was not their name, that it was their title.
Both Elders Grant Fisher and Glen Sorenson turned out to be really good missionaries and both served as District Presidents before their missions were finished. That evening I held a meeting with the missionaries and gave them their assignments as to where they would labor. After all the elders were assigned and working, I took three Elders with me and drove to Bishop. One day the two Lady Missionaries who were working out in Oildale, came in to the office asking if I would go the next week with them to a Cottage Meeting they had scheduled. We met regularly every week with her in her home and enjoyed the Spirit of the Lord to a very great degree.
It had grown into a habit each week that after our subject matter was completed and we had taught them that part of the Gospel plan we had decided on, that Dorothy would bring in some sort of refreshment such as pie and ice cream. When I arrived in San Francisco it was raining and nearly evening by the time I found the Mission Home. That night and the next day I spent time with President Ellsworth outlining what he had in mind for me to do. On my way up to San Francisco I received a letter as I was going through Bakersfield, from Clayton M.
The last week of my Mission, after having visited all of the districts in the Mission except Reno, Nevada, President Ellsworth called me into his office for a visit. Then, he told me to go to Reno, Nevada, hold the Conference there and instruct the Missionaries.
I was in Reno, Nevada when my release took effect, and with instruction to stop in Salt Lake to be set apart as a Counselor in the Bishopric, it would not allow for me to go back down to Bakersfield to baptize Dr.
The next morning, which was Sunday, I went out to go to Church with my sister and brother-in-law, Paul and Helen Zaugg. The first of the week, or Monday morning, I went into the Church Offices to be interviewed and report my mission. Taylor of the First Council of the Seventy, I was asked if I wanted to go to New Zealand, being as that was where my Mother had been made a convert to the Church and had lived all her growing years until she was about twenty one years old. Moss got a little tired of their conduct also, for she reached over and slapped one of the women on the arm who was doing most of the talking and said, a€?Shut up!a€? She told them if they would just listen to me I could explain everything. She had a sister who had been at her home a couple of times when we were there teaching them.
Button asked me when I entered with Elder Crandall was, a€?If I should decide I wanted to join your church and asked to, would I have to deny all the spiritual experiences I have had?a€? My answer to her was, a€?Our Church was founded on revelation, which in, and of itself, is a highly spiritual experience.a€? That seemed to strike her very pleasantly and that night we started a very congenial, friendly relationship. Lyle Wynn came in to take my place as District President, and I left along with Elder Sorenson who was transferred with me.
Button: As a young girl she met her husband while in a seminary studying for the ministry of the Methodist Church. Button and her membership in the Church: Each year for two or three years she would lock up her office and go up to Salt Lake to do Temple work and research in genealogy. Sadly, many people, too wrapped up in their own lives, don't realise the realities of poverty in The UK, assuming it is their own fault. Before Mick came over to the Magpies he had a couple of trial games with Balmain that year (1968). Moss to come out and get me to take me back to baptize them, back in Downey, I received a letter from Mrs. He played in the famous preseason game at Brookvale where Laurie Bruyeres sent off 7 players. Archibald, was transfered into the Mission office, and Elder Lamar Fairbanks came in to replace him. The next day we went with Brother Lee out into the country to visit a man, a non-member of the Church. The whole problem is that the greedy few take far more than they need, leaving the rest of us struggling.We ask you, - who really needs more money than they can possibly spend? She said she didna€™t want to have anything to do with the Church, but as she had a brother in the mission field she wanted to do something for us because of him.
Moss came over to the door and took my hand, in their presence and with tears in her eyes told me, in a voice loud enough for them all to hear, how bad she felt for me, a servant of God, being persecuted in her home. She did this for sometime and eventually the same feeling came over her, and she said she knew it was not true.
The Mark, the currency of Germany's value was not competitive in the international currency and the economic fabric became miserable with poverty, unemployment and other economic problemsIn 1931, Hitler came to power with his intrigues and Nazi propaganda. He established a racial regime where top position was given to blue eyed Aryan race of Germans .Where as Jews and blacks were given low position. Button and told her that she should go ahead and have one of the other Elders baptize her and not wait any longer.
Associating with Jews was not felt good and they were forced to surrender their property and send to areas where poverty and unemployment were the social outcomes. He encouraged to multiply the children of German race and given clear instructions to avoid the marriages with the Jews.
Born in Cootamundra in 1943 Mick played schoolboy football for De La Salla Brothers Cootamundra.
Moss answered the door, I could see she was all ready to leave the house, so I apologized and said I would run on.


MOVE FORWARD TO 2014: Disillusioned with Capitalism and Socialism,A Nigel Farage joined a small party called UKIP. Through his attractive speeches, he got a wide following all over The UK.The economy is struggling, and through the ConDem's policies, there is widespread poverty, unemployment and economic problems. A A Despite what he says, Nigel Farage and his cohorts are racist, indeed, the name United Kingdom Independence Party says it all - The British for the British! He also at this time represented his school in running but due to a bad accident whilst one of the Brothers was teaching him to run the hurdles Mick never quite ran to his full natural speed. Moving to the Newcastle area Mick played for his new school Marist Brothers Hamilton but because of a difference of option with the Sports master Mick relocated to Cooks High School were Mick also played rep football. They had been through the Salt Lake Temple and had their marriage sealed for time and all eternity. It was a political earthquake!A Less than 12 weeks earlier, Winston Churchill (pictured right) had announced the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany.
Churchill wanted his wartime coalition to continue until Japan too had been defeated, but was not unduly dismayed when his Labour ministers insisted that the country be offered a choice.
The reason Mick came down to Sydney was because an ex Sydney player Bobby Hensby (Balmain 1960-1962 and East's 1965-1966) came to play at West's Newcastle in 1967. The Prime Minister called the election for early July, confident that the British people would back the greatest hero of the hour. Bobby's dad was an official with the Tigers so Mick went down and played 2 trial games but the Balmain deal did not suit Mick so he went back to West's Newcastle.A A few weeks later Billy Beaver rang and offered Mick a contract to play with West's. Of all Churchill's colossal misjudgments, that was probably the most egregious!A The voters wanted an end to wartime austerity, and no return to prewar economic depression. Mick agreed and on Sunday April 21st at Lidcombe Oval at the age of 24 he played his first game for West's. Three years earlier, in the darkest days of the war, they had been offered a tantalising glimpse of how things could be in the bright dawn of victory. It offered nothing less than a cradle-to-grave welfare state.That was the great promise dangled before the British electorate in 1945.
Though Churchill had presided over the planning for radical social reform, though he was a genuine hero of the masses,A the people of The UKA did not trust him to deliver the brave new world of Beveridge.There were other factors too.
Sadly, many people, too wrapped up in their own lives, don't realise the realities of poverty in The UK, assuming it is their own fault.
Hows this for 1972 when a average wage was about $4,000 Mick received $800 bucks a win plus a sign on fee. Mick scored 2 tries in this game.A A East's made the grand final in 1972 but were beaten by Manly 19-14.

You would think Mick would give footy awaya€¦No way 1977 Coaches East's Presidents Cup team unlucky to lose in final.

Some of the players that played for Parramatta Reserve Grade during those 2 years are the who's who of that era.
Best winger you played against "Johnny King, like hitting a door, very underrated, very tough".
How about best West's player from Kelly's Kids era, very hard to pick but "Doug Walkaden, tough player, sleeves rolled up, no short cuts, always looking to offload a€¦ special mentions to Bruce Beer and Dave Barsley.Mick's views on today's football are that there is no player endurance needed with the game. Johnathan Thurston Now days Mick lives up Gosford way and competes in Australian Stock Horse Mares competition.
Mick rides these horses at country shows and was on his way to the Royal Easter Show when I called in to do this interview.
Mick's main injuries after playing football for all those years are very sore back and legs but to keep fit at the age of 64 Mick loves riding his horses. As I drove home my thoughts went back 40 yearsa€¦.to a night at Lidcombe Oval with my mate Greg by my side, we were cheering for West's and Mick (you see Mick was Greg's favourite winger to).
West's beat St George that night and Greg and I were two happy lads as we walked back to Lidcombe railway station and the long train trip home.
