RADIO PROGRAM No. 122 - Intelligence Is Available Where You Are

On this program Leonard Alderson of Reading, England, told of his own experience. The program was as follows:

Speaker: Most of us want to improve ourselves, no matter what our calling in life may be, whether we're in school, working on a job, or running a home. But aren't we sometimes inclined to limit ourselves because we think we've done as much as we can? Today we're going to talk about the availability of unlimited intelligence, the intelligence that God imparts to each one of us. Our guest had an experience in college that showed him that true intelligence is always at hand, and I'm going to ask him to tell you about it. Here is Leonard Alderson of Reading, England. Where did this experience take place, Mr. Alderson?

Mr. Alderson: It was at Cambridge University in England. I had spent two years in the Royal Air Force, and I went up to the University on a scholarship. I must admit I had tremendous misgivings. I thought that two years in the services might make me mentally rather rusty. The first two or three weeks at University I felt very inadequate. I would read a history book, for example, and I wouldn't know what I'd read. Then after about three weeks there was a Christian Science lecture nearby which I attended. I had been a Christian Scientist as long as I could remember, and I had experienced many fine healings; but I seemed to be unable to see just how this problem could be worked out.
