[J. Reuben Clark]

[Transcript of telephone conversation between Clark and Franklin S. Harris concerning Arthur Gaeth giving a Brigham Young University extension course in Salt Lake City on the history of modern Europe in light of Gaeth's anti-Nazi speeches and his resistence to tempering his talks as counseled by Clark:]

President Clark: Of course we can stress suppress him, I do not know how long it will last, but we still can speak, but I do not believe he ought to be representing a Church institution, and then showing this disrespect and hate which he tries to show.
