60 years ago today - May 22, 1961

[J. Reuben Clark]
President Wilkinson came in to see me, apparently much disturbed by the decision to discontinue the lectures of the Brigham Young University in the Assembly Hall. I told him the matter had been thoroughly considered ...

He had a general complaint on the general practice of getting the "go ahead" on certain things and then have them upset after without a hearing which apparently was done without being considered or discussed with him. I told him that such was the situation and that it was unfortunate if he did not like it, that I did not see anything else for him to do. He complained about his frustration and I indicated that this was unfortunate but it was the fact. He talked in a general way about the situation in which he found himself, that he got a decision from his Board and the President, only to find it overturned shortly, through "end-running."
