William Aberhart - February 11 (1940); J.S. Woodsworth (1935); R.B. Bennett (1934)

Digitized sound file not attached, due to copyright restrictions
Audio 258a consists of the following recording:
Title: William Aberhart – “Edmonton Bible Conference” (1940) / J.S. Woodsworth – “My Political Views” (1935) / R.B. Bennett –“Canadian Bankers Association Speech” (1934)
In this recording, William Aberhart [Premier of Alberta between 1935 and 1943] emphasizes the [Social Credit] party motto “I mean business”. He leads a rally. Manning {Ernest? Premier of Alberta between 1943 and 1968 for the Social Credit Party of Alberta] acknowledges the support they have received. Aberhart offers an observation on the gospel of John, chapter 8. He asks for financial support. He offers a brief sermon on heaven. Singing is introduced, but is not recorded. Lord Tweedsmuir’s death is reported. The story of Ahab is recounted. Aberhart and someone referred to only as "Kennedy" banter back and forth on several issues. Aberhart recounts several compelling anecdotes from history. At [23:42] there is another fast forward. Aberhart discusses prophecy in light of present day events and responds to a letter. At [25:16] there is a distinct change in the recording. A radio promotional piece on the benefits of the Social Credit Party plays. At [28:16] a man announces that the next speaker will be J.S. Woodsworth [Winnipeg MP, 1921-1942]. Woodsworth speaks on his political beliefs and changes needed in Canada. At [31:32] a man announces that the next speaker will be R.B. Bennett. Prime Minister Bennett speaks to the Canadian Bankers' Association. He discusses post World War I Canada and the Great depression.
