Hartzler), Goshen College graduate who discussed the young people’s movement issues and parted ways with Bender and became a leader [see GAMEO sketch on Hartzler] in the General Conference Mennonite Church. January 2, 1919, comment on Bender’s wearing “regulation coat” [attire], and remarks about visiting “Smucker”, probably Vernon Smucker. March 30, 1919: “I note that you are getting more the church point of view”; comment on Goshen College problems, and that in trying to be expedient and appease church leaders, Irvin R. Detweiler was “playing with fire.” March 14, 1923, how church history was being made at Topeka, Indiana (where Hartzler lived); also, reference to Barker Street congregation, and its fight for congregational autonomy. Significant set of correspondence with T. K. Hershey (Tobias K.

Miller and Levi Mumaw as well as by Bender. December 5, 1930: Bender explained why Paraguay, not Brazil; Bender recounted his own role; assertion that “not a single refugee family went to Paraguay on any other basis that [their own free choice, after learning the facts]”; blunt advice to Hershey about whom he should listen to, with mention of refugee names; problems and division among the refugees, partly due to the several branches of Mennonites; Bender’s love for the refugees; etc. Letter from Hershey, December 17, 1930.
