Keeping the Prophet on Schedule

On a trip to visit Saints in southern Utah with President Joseph F. Smith, it was Presiding Bishop Charles W. Nibley’s responsibility to keep the group moving from town to town on schedule. “It was a difficult task to pull him away from the little children,” Nibley said. “He wanted to shake hands with and talk to every one of them.”
