A Trip to Town

Contributor: BarbaraLeishman Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

The following is a story about my great grandfather Heber Raymond Bingham. It is told by his son Eldon. "We were a farming family in Idaho, and we had gone to town for the day. It was a cold March day. "At the end of our visit we were waiting to see a show. We were hungry so we went to get ice cream from the drug store while we waited. The pool hall was next to the drugstore. They were the only places that were still open. "A man came out of the pool hall and said, 'Ray, what in the hell are you doing standing out here on a day like this behind that silly sign licking on that ice cream cone? Why don't you come on inside, where it's warm and where it's comfortable? Come on in to the Pool Hall.' "My father said, 'I'm all right. I'm fine.' The man said 'Well, Ray, just come in. It's just good fun in there. It's just fine people, just fellowship and warm. You stand out here and look as ridiculous as all get out.' "My father said, 'I'm fine, I'll stay out here.' "Then I chimed in and said, 'Well Father why don't you go on in?' "Then the man said, 'You don't know it, but half the people in there are standing in that window looking out here and just laughing their fool heads off at you standing out here licking that silly ice cream cone--and in this cold weather.' "My father said, 'Well I'm all right, I'll just stay out here.' "Then the man replied, 'Well, if you're going to stay here and act like a damn fool you just go right ahead and stay here.' He turned around and walked off. My father just stood there with his head kind of down and the ice cream pointing toward the sidewalk and I said to him, 'Why don't you ever go into the pool hall; I've never seen you go into the pool hall?' He stood there for a minute and he said, 'Well son, the most precious thing that I have is my priesthood. I could go into the pool hall, but I'm not right sure my priesthood would go in there with me. And, I don't ever want to be without my priesthood, not even for a moment.' "I said, 'Well, you know there are a lot of people in there that hold the priesthood.' "'Well,' he said, 'There are a lot of people in there who may have been given the priesthood, but I'm not right sure that their priesthood is in there with them.'" Eldon later went on to speak of how this experience helped him when he was in the Army. He says, “I would hear the soldiers--what they were doing and so forth-- and there's always the girly shows and the pool halls and the taverns and all of that, you know, and I'd stand there in front of those places all alone, and hear my father say, "The most precious thing I have is my priesthood. I might go in but I'm not right sure my priesthood can go with me, and I don't ever want to be without my priesthood."

Grandpa Bingham was a quiet man. He usually sat in his brown leather rocking chair and listened to the conversations around him. When I was 12 or 13 years of age, I had an assignment in school to interview an older relative. Grandpa happened to be visiting us that day, so I asked him if I could interview him. His was an affirmative reply so we walked out into the garden as I asked him questions about is life. I wish I still had the paper I wrote about him - I found him to be an interesting man! He was a man of great spirituality. The following story from his personal history tells of one experience, when he was ten-years-old, that helped his faith and testimony grow. "Father was digging a well and he reached a depth of about sixteen to eighteen feet. My uncle Erastus Bingham, a lad my size, but a little older, came to our house. We decided to help dig the well. None of the men were around. They were busy at something else. We'd watched Father and his brother go down on the ropes attached to the poles strung tepee-like above the hole. It was a simple matter to slide down to the bottom. We began to dig; we were smart kids. We congratulated ourselves. Our fathers would be proud of us. We worked like beavers. Then we found that the dirt we dug had to be moved. We'd seen the older men take it up in the bucket. One of us must go up the rope and pull the bucket to the surface. I took hold of the rope and tried to climb out. I couldn't make it. Erastus, being a little older, tried to climb out. He failed. Again and again we put forth our best efforts, to no avail We now had visions of the well caving in and burying us alive. We know it wouldn't do any good to yell. No one could hear us; no human help was possible. We'd always had the habit of praying; now it came naturally. We needed greater power than we possessed. I bowed my head and said, "'Heavenly Father, help us get out of this well.' I took hold of the rope and climbed right out. Then I helped Erastus to the surface. When we both got out, recovered our breath, and had calmed down a bit we decided we didn't want to proceed with the well digging any more that day. We were two thankful, rather silent boys as we walked to the house. Years later, this uncle of mine bore testimony of that particular prayer and its answer. This was an example of small kids, small prayer, but large results in faith and testimony."

Heber Raymond Bingham was 32 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.

Heber Raymond Bingham was 61 years old when World War II: Hiroshima, Japan is devastated when the atomic bomb "Little Boy" is dropped by the United States B-29 Enola Gay. Around 70,000 people are killed instantly, and some tens of thousands die in subsequent years from burns and radiation poisoning. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
