75 years ago today - May 4, 1949

[David O. McKay]
(9:30 a.m.) Brother Alexander Schreiner came in very much upset because Brother Asper had accused him of claiming to be 'head Tabernacle organist,' and Brother Asper said that if it ever happened again there would be 'fire works.' It has happened again, and Brother Schreiner says it is through no wish or action of his, but some magazine has referred to him as 'chief organist' in the Tabernacle. Others have referred to Brother Schreiner as 'Head organist.' Brother Schreiner said, 'I don't want to hurt Brother Asper and I do not know what to do.' I said 'Don't do anything, and when the 'fire works' come we shall see if we can distinguish the flame with some pacifying element.'
