[Heber J. Grant]

In the afternoon held a meeting with about twenty of the leading brethren [in Cedar City]. Gave them to understand that the State Constitution met the unqualified support of the First Presidency and Twelve Apostles, and urged upon them the necessity of seeing that every registered voter of the People's Party turned out at the coming election, and cast their vote in favor of the Constitution. Requested them not to mention the fact of my meeting with them, as it might be construed by our enemies against us, as they would say that this movement was a Church movement instead of a political one.
