[J. Reuben Clark]

[Regarding the appearance of Paul Robeson, a Negro singer, at the University of Utah's Kingsbury Hall on March 5 under the auspices of the American Youth for Democracy:] Pres. Clark called Mark Petersen and told him of the above call to Mrs. Miller, and of his suggestion that they might be interested to note the professors and business men who might be sponsoring this concert. He said the American Youth for Democracy Organization is a communist organization.
