60 years ago today - May 13, 1963

[BYU President Ernest Wilkinson received a phone call from Ezra Taft Benson "who read me the riot act for having invited a Communist to speak to our students ... Brother Lee commented that anyone who didn't agree with Brother Benson's mind was, indeed, a Communist. Brother Moyle said that he was happy that I was finding Brother Benson out, that when it came to this subject, he just didn't have any reason."
