80 years ago today - Nov 2, 1942

[J. Reuben Clark]
Mr. Theodore Waller came to see me, stating that he was from the War Re-Location Authority, out of San Francisco, and he wished to get my ideas as to the number of Japanese we could absorb here. I told him that while personally I had no antipathy toward the Japanese, we did not want the war to leave us with a Japanese problem in this State; we preferred no Japanese.
