80 years ago today - Nov 9, 1932

[President Heber J. Grant Diary] I got up this morning at 2:30 and phoned the Tribune to learn how the election had gone and was informed that practically all of the Republicans had been defeated, Senator [and apostle] Smoot among the number. My heart goes out in deep sympathy to Senator Smoot. After thirty years of the most splendid labor, the most diligent work that I think any man ever performed in the Senate, to have the people be so ungrateful for all he has done for Utah as to leave him home, it must be a terrible disappointment to him.
