[Heber J. Grant]
At the Council meeting today it was unanimously decided to prepare a statement to be read, refuting some of the lies in The New Era, among other things the declaration that Brother Widtsoe had married a plural wife and then discarded her while he was president of the University. A motion was made that the charge against Brother Widtsoe should be repudiated, and I requested Brother Stephen L. Richards who made the motion to prepare the article.
