[President Heber J. Grant]

Spent the day at home in bed most of the time reading from the News and the Era. I had the pleasure of reading an editorial from the Deseret News which was considered too strong to be published. I wish we could publish it. It attacks President Roosevelt very strongly on running for a third term. I do not know how many Latter-day Saints would want to stop the News if we should publish it, but I almost feel like having it published even if we should lose a hundred or five hundred subscribers. I think we have almost got to the point where the Deseret News ought to take a strong stand against Roosevelt running for a third term, no matter how many people might be almost ready to apostatize.
