[J. Reuben Clark]

Brother Farnsworth had a bundle of papers with him, and turned over pages which he said were extracts from the Talmud, which showed the attitude of the Jews towards the Gentiles. He also had lists of the Red organizations, some 350 in all. He said that these organizations were of great numbers in Utah; that professors at the University of Utah belonged to them, as also professors at the Brigham Young University. He said that at the meetings which he had attended of the Communist Party they had advocated mass assassinations such as had been practised by them in Russia, and they also advocated mass starvation. He said that they are organized, and had their men listed who were to be assassinated under this wholesale plan, and that high up among those who were to be first taken were the Church Authorities, all of whom were to be murdered.

Brother Farnsworth spoke of the teaching down at Brigham Young University of religion, and particularly referred to the teaching of Elder Guy C. Wilson, who had for a thesis: "Sacrifice Prophet, Priest, or King whenever you deem it necessary in order to maintain faith in God." Brother Farnsworth said that the Brigham Young University teaching was to the effect that every man must decide for himself what he would believe'should make his own religion, really'and he said that the teaching was destructive of all discipline and regularity in a religious belief. ...

Brother Farnsworth charged that all of the policies of the present administration in Washington were shaped by the Jews ...

I told Brother Farnsworth that I had heard all of the things that he was telling me before; that some of them I knew to be true; that I felt we were in a serious condition; that I had been preaching about it for four or five years. ...
