[David O. McKay]
President [Hugh B.] Brown reported that at the Council Meeting in the Temple yesterday, Brother [Harold B.] Lee, who is head of the Garment Committee, had raised a question about authorizing ZCMI to mark Munsingwear and other union suits as Temple Garments, which practice they have been following for some time. It was the sentiment of the Garment Committee that inasmuch as the distribution of Temple Garments has been turned over to the Relief Society[,] anyone desiring to use union suits or underwear other than the authorized pattern garment should take this underwear to the Relief Society for marking, or should mark it themselves. I agreed with this sentiment.
