[Marion G. Romney]
Brothers Harold B. Lee, Henry D. Moyle and I spent the day in Grantsville with President J. Reuben Clark, Jr., going over welfare problems. It was decided we should survey the Church to determine how many welfare recipients there are in the Church, and to determine their classification, the aim being to cut down the budget. Brother Clark's feeling is that for those we must take care of permanently , we should supply a rounded-out living, but for those who come and go we should give them some help in staple items.
