* Blacks may become Mormon priests
Page 21 has a one column head: "Mormons Let Blacks In Clergy". The report notes in part: "...Mormon Church President Spencer W. Kimball said he had received a revelation from God after praying...to 'extend to every worthy member of the church all of the privileges and blessings which the gospel affords...all worthy male members of the church may be ordained to the priesthood without regard for race or color.'...".
The complete 32 page issue. There are various wormholes throughout, a small one touching one letter in the mentioned heading. Four binding holes near the spine.
