Description UTAH'S SIX SURVIVING DAILIES Herald among the many mastheads in its multi-state group. On September 3, 1928, the Logan paper's banner became the Cache Valley Daily Herald and on August 1,1931, the Herald and the Journal were merged. They'd engaged in a bitter, no-holds-barred struggle for three years during which N. Gunnar Rasmuson, who'd transferred from the Provo operation, gained journalistic acclaim as the Herald's publisher. Shortly after the Logan Her aid-Journal had been created, a semi-weekly competitor was launched. William H. England, William C. England, Joseph C.

Thatcher, John T. Caine, Jr. and W B. Preston, who were financially involved in that time-span. Joshua Hughes Paul, briefly editor in 1891 until leaving to serve as President of first, Brigham Young College and then, in 1894, the Agricultural College of Utah. Noble Warrum, a transplanted Indiana attorney, who was editor from 1892 until 1897. He moved on to a distinguished career as editor of the Salt Lake Argus and then editorial writer for the Salt Lake Tribune. Staff members well-remembered in more recent times are James Godbold, Bob Findley, who went on to a career with Denver's Rocky Mountain News and Ja-nelle Brown, who continued journalistically on the Boise 165
