The First Presidency sends its secretary "to go quietly to Logan and work to make the Republican ticket successful in the approaching city election." Democratic leaders complain of church influence; the Presicency issues a carefully worded statement on 25 Mar. which does not deny that the Presidency sent its secretary to influence Mormons to vote Republican but denies authorization "to use our names."
