[J. Reuben Clark]
President Delbert G. Taylor, Counselor in the Rexburg Presidency, called to see me about the following matters, both connected with the Ricks College:

1. They had just discharged a man from the faculty, a teacher of music, a man named Anderson, for homosexuality. Apparently it had been going on for several years; he alleged he had not tampered with young boys, but he evidently had tampered with others who had been at the school. They had caught him through a confession of another man. Though they had investigated him before, he had strenuously denied it. He enquired about whether he should be handled churchwise. I said thus far we had done no more than drop them from positions they held.
