[Minutes of the Seventies]
Elders Albert J. Southwick and Richard L. Evans came to the office today for the purpose of being ordained seventies but upon consulting with them, Pres. [B. H.] Roberts stated that they were loathe to accept the responsibility of the office of seventy and in discussing their cases it was learned that their KSL broadcasting and Tabernacle choir work would prevent them from attending their quorum meetings. Their ordination will be left to the one who will ordain those who were not present on September 3, 1933, to be ordained in the 18th ward.
