[J. Reuben Clark]
Proposed Statement of President McKay to State Legislators.

In the early 1930's the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints transferred to the State of Utah, Dixie College, Snow College, and Weber College. The deeds in each instance provided that in the event the particular college was not maintained as a Junior College by the State, it would revert to the Church.

If the Legislature now decides no longer to operate these three Colleges, the Church will again take title to them and operate them as a part of its educational system.

Drafted by Pres. Wilkinson.
