[David O. McKay Office Journal]
8:30 a.m. This morning my counselors--Presidents Richards and Clark--viewed the M.I.A. film "How Near to the Angels" which was shown in the Church Office Projection Room. We decided that the film is very excellent, but it was my judgment that it would be better not to use it for showing in the Missions of the Church as it will only intensify the problem that our young girls are now facing with relation to meeting young men who are worthy of taking them to the Temple. There is a question in our minds whether it is best for them to go through life unmarried rather than marry outside of the Church as we feel there are many good men in the world that they could marry with the possibility that they may bring them into the Church later.
