[David O. McKay]
[Part of interview with Mr. Bell of Time magazine:] c. Did the end of polygamy come as a result of divine revelation, or as a manifesto to President Woodruff.

I answered: President Woodruff stated that it came as a revelation; that he prayed, and then he issued the Manifesto.

d. I understand that the Welfare Program started in 1936, and that it came as a revelation to President Heber J. Grant.

I answered: It was not a revelation; it is just a program of the Church.
