In a discussion of the evolving correlation program, Pres. Hugh B. Brown told Pres. McKay that he felt the First Presidency was "losing its grip on the activities that are going forward, and that more and more we [the First Presidency] are being regulated and ruled by committees." He added that he "felt that the First Presidency is taking rather a second place to the committees in these matters," and he would like to bring some things back to the control of the First Presidency. But Pres. McKay did not act on the suggestion.
