What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

DAILY TRIBUNE-EXAMINER Friday, December 28,1973 Dillon, Montana Pages LDS leader passes SALT LAKE CITY (AP)— The world’s 3.3 million Mor­ mons mourned Thursday the death of Harold B. Lee, the -church's 11th president and a man recognized by the faithful as a prophet, seer and revela- tor. As the final chapter of 1973 closes, how many of us will take time to inventory our lives as to what we have accomplished, where we have failed and what should have priority for the coming year. The most important single soul-searching question we should ask in our self evaluation is, how im­ portant has God been in our lives during the past year? What have we done to build this sacred and desperately needed relationship? James J. Metcalfe beautifully puts this in proper perspective in his peom entitled Our Inner Space. We think the greatest problems now That we are forced to face Are those that are related to The Sphere of outer space But actually those problems are No cause for fear today As God designed the Universe And guides us on our way. Yes, He will let our minds explore And bless the one who tries To solve the mystery of the moon And all the changing skies. But He is more concerned about The inner space of man The way we think and feel and strive To do the best we can. That we may gain the privilege to Behold His glorious face For whjch we cqpn$ qjjglify , . ....... Except from inner space.ifrf .a-i»na ;ii.m These eloquent words should cause us to ponder upon the question, “What is the quality of our inner space? ” This is where true success or total failure can be found, where one finds peace of mind, the highest form of happiness or endless despair and misery. It has been said, “The sun creates our shadow and God creates our soul, but it is you that deter­ mines the shape of both. ” What kind of architects are we with our own spiritual souls? We should remember that, \Service is the rent we pay for the space we occupy on this earth. ’’ 1973 has been filled with many great and perplexing problems which has caused some to lose faith in the future. U our lives are in partnership with God, through service and obedience to His teachings, these mountain-like challenges of 1974 will be readily overcome. Life is like a grindstone. It either wears you down or sharpens you up, depending upon the material you are made of. It is important to think positive about the future. “Problems are only opportunities in work clothes.” One with God is a majority. The unknown of 1974 should not cause fear or discouragement if we are willing to face it in faith that our destiny is in the Lord’s hands as long as we submit ourselves to his teachings and precepts. It is vital that we commit ourselves to support our national leaders, never has the need been greater, and not be swayed by those who twist and distort the facts in order to destroy confidence both in our government and our American way of life. We should look upon sacrifice and the greater sharing of the nation’s bur­ dens as a privilege and our way of saying thanks for our past freedom, prosperity and safety and that it is worth the price we might be called upon to pay. Sacrifice implies greater love and concern for others. This is needed to regenerate the inner strength of our nation. We need to smile more. Remember, “A smile is a light in the window that says the heart is at home.” —Dillon Second Ward L.D.S. Church L.D.S. Church GRACE U N ITE D M E T H O D IS T CHURCH Mnnack A WMhlngtpn J i m i i E.

A church spokesman said there was no indication anything was wrong with the 74-year-old church leader when he was ad­ mitted to the hospital. He had spent Christmas day at home with his family. Cause of death was given as “lung and cardiac failure.” Funeral services were sched­ uled Saturday iii the 8,000-seat Mormon Tabernacle on Temple Square. President Lee’s body will lie in state in the church administration building Friday and Saturday before the serv­ ices. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir will provide music for the funeral. President Lee’s death dis­ solves the three-man First Presidency and puts control of the church under the Council of the Twelve Apostles, who are expected to choose a successor next week during a special meeting in the Mormon Temple. Both surviving members of the ruling First Presidency— Nathan Eldon Tanner and Mar­ ion G. Romney—are also on the council. If tradition is followed, the council’s president and senior member, Spencer W. Kimball, 78, will be the next Mormon president. Next in line would be Ezra Taft Benson, 74, secretary of agriculture in the Eisenhower administration and a political and religious conservative. There are no formal rules governing ascension, however. Mormons believe their leaders are chosen by direct inspiration from God. Elder Kimball speaks in church meetings with a low- pitched, rasping voice, the re­ sult of a lung malignancy which required part of his vocal cords to be removed. He has suffered ill health in the past and underwent open- heart surgery in April 1972. But companions say he has recov­ ered remarkably well and regu­ larly begins a long working day at 5 a.m. President Lee guided the church through 18 months of rapid world growth and signifi­ cant internal change. He was the youngest church president in 40 years and served a shorter term than any president in the church's 143-year history. The unexpected nature of President Lee’s death added to the feeling of loss among Mor­ mons and others who knew the diurch leader. His two prede­ cessors had lived into their 90s. President Lee succeeded Jo­ seph Fielding Smith, who died at 05 after serving 2% years. Before that, David O. McKay led the diurch for nearly two decades. Church membership topped three million during President Lee's leadership. The Mormon missionary system, made up mostly of youths financed by their own families, was ex­ panded. The church now has nearly 18,000 missionaries preaching the “ restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.” Mormons believe their church was atarted by Christ, taken from the earth and restored to Joseph Smith in 1830. President Lee was credited with preparing the church for world-wide growth, adding doz­ ens of new leaders and stream­ lining its far reaching social and recreational programs. He conducted conferences for the first time in Mexico City and Munich, Germany. He also presented an image of openness uncharacteristic of K st Mormon leaders, allowing iquent interviews. He enter­ tained questions on con­ troversial issues such as the church’s strict opposition to abortion and its ban of blacks from full participation. He said the church stood “shoulder to shoulder” with the Catholics on the abortion issue. But Mormon ism, which does not considered itself a Protestant religion, has shunned ecumenical movements. President Lee often said he did n ot expect people who do not believe in revelation to un­ derhand the restriction against blacks, but he said Mormons who accept the principle do not question it. He said it would take a direct revelation from God to change the policy. bought for today: Art may Aw a suit of clothes; but na- • m u st product a man—Da- Huma, Scottish — 1-“ 1 h istorian, 1711*:
