This is to record that I've been predicting since October conference that President [N. Eldon] Tanner and President [Marion G.] Romney would be placed on emeritus status in April Conference and that new members of the First Presidency would be chosen. If so, I am predicting that Elder [Gordon B.] Hinckley and Elder Howard Hunter would be chosen as counselors. My predictions have never ever been correct, but I dutifully record them anyway!
