[Paris Idaho School of the Prophets]

... Elder Wixom asked a question with regard to the word of wisdom its observance and obligations. ...

Prest. Rich said none of us fully kept the word of wisdom. He did not feel over strenuous in the matter every man ought to know before the Lord what he should do in these things. If he did not who should. Although in some very rare instances it might be wise to use a little of the articles mentioned in the word of wisdom still this should not be taken as a pretext for indiscriminate use. ...
