Media Confused by Speaking in Tongues


The Evening News publishes a cartoon at the top of page 1, entitled, “Summer Solstice Sees Strenuous Sects Sashaying.” It is a tongue twister. People are attracted to the Azusa Street Mission by this cartoon. The Los Angeles Daily Times runs an article on First New Testament Church entitled, “Queer ‘Gift’ Given Many,” in which attention is called to the actions of Lillian Keyes, the 16-year-old daughter of a prominent surgeon, Dr. Henry S. Keyes. Pastor Smale writes a letter to the Los Angeles Church Federation, challenging them to take some positive action.
