[J. Reuben Clark]
Mr. Gordon of the Burns Detective Agency (4-5447) called President at the suggestion of Orval Adams, who was to have introduced him to President Clark, but who is in New York at the present time.
The Burns Agency represent the Attorney General of the state of Arizona. The county officials at Kingman had asked the Attorney General for assistance in cleaning up the bunch of polygamists in the Arizona Strip. Mr. Gordon wanted to solicit President Clark's help and his advice on how to go at it. They wanted to handle it so it would not hurt the Church. They wondered if they might get some help from the Church. He understands that the people in southern part of Utah, St. George, have considerable feeling about the matter, and a number of them have gone to the County Officials at Kingman about it, apparently with the idea of cleaning it up.
