[J. Reuben Clark]
Bro Ivins brought up the question of endorsing NRA in Conference. I took no part in the discussion. Bro. Grant felt we should not do so.'Bro Ivins also brought up the question reworking the final clauses of his Washington speech. Having to go to the Banks' meetings, he left us to discuss the questions. We decided that Bro. Ivins should say what he wished. I told Bro. Grant I had in mind speaking at conference about our "issues" and that we would be much happier if we would hang to demonstrated revealed truth. I said in view of Bro. Ivin's attitude, perhaps it would be better if I said nothing. Bro Grant said he thought the discussion timely and that I should go forward with it.
