The only time that April General Conference has been cancelled was in 1919. Why was conference cancelled?
a.                  World War I
b.                  Renovations to the Tabernacle
c.                   The death of Joseph F. Smith

Yesterday’s answer:
a.      First Security Bank
Tim Evans arrived with a load of merchandise at David Eccles’ general merchandise store in Scofield, Utah, sometime in the 1880s. Eccles’ chain of Utah stores was the beginning of a large financial institution that was to become known as First Security Bank.
