Note on plagiarism
ALLEGAN, Mich.--Pam Dewey notes that, in light of the "HWA Is Not Guilty" item in "Notes and Quotes" in the Dec. 31 issue, The Journal might want to mention an article by Norman Edwards that offers evidence and arguments that Herbert W. Armstrong did in fact lift material from a British-Israelism book by J.H. Allen.
