The “Best Dressed Man”

See the source image

At an early Pioneer celebration in Springville, Utah, William Clyde Morgan won the “best dressed man” award. Why?
a.                  He put out $100 for the shoes and suit he was wearing from a New York City store
b.                  Everything he was wearing was made from material from his farm
c.                   Everything he was wearing was made from material from Springville
d.                  Everything he was wearing was from Europe
Yesterday’s answer:
A   Increased mortality rates during heart surgeries
From the life of Russell Marion Nelson:   Elder Nelson had an experience that bore powerful testimony to him of the Lord’s intervention in his professional endeavors. In the early stages of open heart surgery, the mortality rate was extremely high and each operation required a heavy time commitment—sometimes even days with one patient. In 1964 he was called to be a stake president and was troubled about having adequate time. Elder Nelson said that in setting him apart, Elder Spencer W. Kimball “specifically blessed me that our mortality rates with aortic valve surgery in particular would be reduced, and that no longer would the procedure be the drain on my time and energy that it had been in the past. The following year, the time demands of the operation did decrease . . . [and] our mortality rates went down to where they are today—at a very low and acceptable, tolerable range.”
