Title Indian Stories
Description to being issued a non-transferable ticket to the services. The free tickets were issued for a specific seating area within the temple. Those drawing a white ticket were seated in the Priesthood, or Solemn Assembly Hoom, with a capacity of 1,500 persons. These people entered the temple through the west doors at their allotted time. Those with blue tickets entered the north door and were seated in other rooms throughout the building, making a total of 1,300 people in each session.

The 100-voice choir from the Manti-Ephraira Stakes sang at the first session; the lloab, Blanding, ^landing West and Monticello Stakes at the second session; the Hinckley, Gunnison, Salina and Monroe Stakes at the third session; the Nephi, Nephi north and Fillmore at the fourth session; the Horoni, Mt.
