[Marion G. Romney]
Had the Friday morning welfare meeting at 8:00 a.m. We had quite a discussion this morning as to the relationship of the Welfare Program to the relief agencies of the federal, state and county governments. As usual, the Welfare Committee and President Clark on one side, and the Relief Society and Presiding Bishopric on the other. The principles of the Program were again laid down by President Clark to the effect that all worthy members of the Church can be cared for by the Church, and we do not have to consult with nor be directed by any other agencies.
