[Joseph Fielding Smith]
From 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. I was in session with President McKay and his committee assigning missionaries to the various missions. We had a very long list of them. We are reaching the point where we will have to restrict the sending of young women into the field because there are too many who desire to go, more than really needful.
