85 years ago today - Mar 19, 1938

[Heber J. Grant]

I then had a talk, I think of fully two hours, with [future apostle] Brother Adam S. Bennion, and he finally concluded to pay his tithing for last year, and to be a tithe payer in the future, for which I am very grateful indeed, and withdrew his resignation as a member of the Church Board of Education, and also I told him I would have his resignation withdrawn as a member of the Sunday School board. I have a great respect for Adam S. Bennion, for his ability and his marvelous energy, and thank the Lord that he finally concluded to withdraw these resignations. I feel sure in my heart that had he not done so he would drift away and become indifferent to the Church. I now have strong hopes that from this day forward he will progress in the Gospel.
