[Heber J. Grant]
At two attended meeting of the Presidency and Apostles in the Temple. .../I stated that I felt that the Presiding Patriarch of the Church should be told to keep the Word of Wisdom in regard to using tobacco or resign his office. There was no action taken on my suggestion. Nearly all of the brethren who spoke felt that there should be a reformation in the life of our Presiding Patriarch. Some agreed with me that he should resign if he did not reform.
