75 years ago today - Mar 21, 1946

[Spencer W. Kimball]

In the 10 A.M. meeting at the temple, the brethren voted to change the name of 'Temple' for that stake which we presented to that stake in its organization two months ago. In last week's meeting I made as heroic a stand as I could. I had felt that there was no reason why the name should not be used because of sacralege or inappropriateness, but the brethren had felt it was not proper. Today they voted to change the name of the Stake. I voted negatively but when they out-voted us, I moved that it be made unanimous. It hurt me not a little, but I am swallowing my pride and disappointment and will be ready to do as the brethren desire at the Stake conference some three weeks to which conference I am now assigned.
