J. Reuben Clark’s father said he would rather miss this than miss school. What was it he’d rather miss?
a.    Sleeping
b.    Meals
c.    Dating
d.    Watching T.V.
Yesterday’s answer:
A   Viewings at funerals
From the life of Abraham H. Cannon:   At his funeral Church authorities discouraged the custom of viewing the body: “It is needless to say to intelligent Latter-day Saints that all this is repugnant to that spirit and decorum which ought to characterize the laying away of the earthly tabernacles of those whom we have loved or respected; and the general authorities of the Church have felt called upon to exert an influence to check this evil, and have advised the Saints not to expose their dead to public view.”
