75 years ago today - Mar 12, 1944

[David O. McKay]
At the request of Mr. Ab. Glassman, editor of the Standard Examiner, I went to hear the records which he had. There were present, besides Mr. Glassman, President Dye, President Paul, and his two counselors (A. Walter Stevenson and Orson Whitney Young) and the Secretary of the Ogden Chamber of Commerce. There in private conference Sunday night between 5 and 8 we listened to the records of conversations held between Kent Bramwell, a Mr. Meyer, and others representing the gambling interests of Ogden City.

I said to Mr. Glassman: 'What are we going to do?'

Mr. Glassman: I have a bear by the tail, and I don't want to let loose of it.'

Mr. Glassman further remarked: 'If he, Mayor Bramwell, will resign, join the Army, and get out of the town, nothing will be done about it.'
