[J. Reuben Clark]
Late in afternoon went for ride with Pres Grant: suggested trying out paying for line to Los Angeles and perhaps Southern Idaho during Conference and broadcasting one full conference. I pointed out that increasingly few'proportionately'of our people came to Conference: that few saw one Conference pamphlet: that few sermons were printed in Deseret News our ordinary magazines: that few took the Deseret News: that the old time method of Presidents of Stakes and bishops returning and giving accounts was largely in discard and so few people really knew what went on at Conference. My suggestion was aimed to cure that. He approved. I said I would investigate costs.
