85 years ago today - Jul 29, 1935

The attention of President Clark was called to a newspaper statement that Senator King had given notice that he intends to submit a resolution in the Senate for the purpose of investigating conditions in Germany relative to the German government's attitude toward the Jews and Catholics in that country and that a private inquiry might be made by German representatives and if they find that he is a member of the Church and representing the State of Utah in the Senate, there might be some reprisals on the part of the present German government against the Latter-day Saints in Germany and it might result in the expulsion of the elders from Germany. President Clark asked that a letter incorporating these ideas be sent to him at the Foreign Bondholders'.
