Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION had been Secretary of Agriculture under President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Conventioners also heard another man destined for prominence in Richard L. Evans, who within a decade would be the President of far-flung Rotary, International. There was a "parting of the ways" for Thursday's luncheon. The Sperry & Hutchinson Company, then purveyors of Green Stamps, entertained the ladies at Prudential Federal's spacious facilities, 3300 South and State Streets.

Then I realized it must be another organization named NEA because by this time in the summer all the underpaid teachers are off on their vacation trips to Europe." General Motors provided a pre-dinner reception and a "Coketail Party" for the younger element Thursday evening after which Newspaper Agency Corporation sponsored the Awards Night festivities. Both John W. (Jack) Gallivan, publisher of the Salt Lake Tribune, and Dr. 0. Preston Robinson, general manager of the Deseret News, conveyed greetings to the delegates. NEA's highest individual accolade, the Amos Award, was given Hugh N. Boyd, publisher of the New Brunswick, New Jersey Home News. Delegates paused at Hill Air Force Base Friday morning 380
