75 years ago today - Oct 30, 1940

[Heber J. Grant] Then President Clark ... said he had talked with some of the political men who believed if the Church were to sign as a body of the leading officials in favor of defeating Roosevelt it would do more harm than good in creating ill will, and maybe not get any more votes; so I suppose that temporarily at least I will abandon my pet desire to have the Presidency, the Twelve, the Seventies and the Presiding Bishopric publish a card that we hope and pray that Roosevelt will be defeated.
