80 years ago today - Mar 30, 1943

[Heber J. Grant]
Brother Anderson and I went upstairs, and I dictated a number of items for a conference talk. I dictated altogether too much I think. I have handed it to President [counselor to Grant] Clark and requested him to please take a lot out of it, which I think he will do.

At 12:15 attended the Utah-Idaho Sugar Company Executive Committee meeting at the Hotel Utah. I got quite excited about some of the extra high salaries which are being paid in the Sugar Company. There would not have been any sugar company but for the Church going to their rescue, I said, and it annoyed me that some of the men professing to be Latter-day Saints are not honest with the Lord in paying their tithing.
