[J. Reuben Clark]
Discussed with Brothers George Albert, Melvin J. and Joseph Fielding the M.I.A. manuals. Made objection to Merrill-Brandley Manual. Said we were in the hands of group of radicals, and that I resented it. Neither George Albert nor Bro Ballard had read manual. I volunteered to read every Manual next year before it was printed.
