[Heber J. Grant]
There was considerable discussion regarding the Idaho Test Oath case [preventing Mormons from voting], now in the Supreme Court, and the question as to whether we should try to get it advanced on the calendar or not was debated, and it was finally concluded to take no action, as in case of an adverse decision it would be very detrimental to our people in Idaho and adjoining territories.
