[J. Reuben Clark]
Bishop Isaacson'Pres. Clark called Bishop Isaacson about the University Artists series, the opening and only event (except the oratorio Elijah) in the Tabernacle being the Negro singer, Marian Anderson. Bishop Isaacson said he would check into it. (On Friday, Bishop Isaacson reported that this had been cleared in July when neither he nor Pres. Clark had been at the meeting.).
