Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION NEA conclaves in Chicago, New Orleans, San Francisco, Minneapolis and Banff, Alberta, Canada and was a leader in planning and carrying out the 1961 national convention in Utah. In the Better Newspaper Contest of USPA, the Times-News was a major award winner in 1950 for Community Service and in 1957 for General Excellence. REGularly Speaking, a combination of "one-liners," whimsy and serious discussion of important Nephi matters, netted first place in its class for Best Editor's Column in 1951, 1952 and 1954. It continued to garner laurels for more than a decade thereafter. "Too often the people who stand up for their rights want to sit down on the rights of others," was a tongue-in-cheek observation of its writer. So was "People who complain that they never had a chance probably would be afraid to take a chance if they had the opportunity. " Perhaps because it had just happened to him, Roy penned, in some exasperation, "You would think a nation brilliant enough to produce H-bombs could provide a shoestring that wouldn't break!" And, without indicating whether it had happened to him, he wrote, "Making both ends meet would be comparatively easy if people wouldn't buy things their neighbors can't afford either." Returning from one of its meetings, Roy reminisced: "At the recent convention of the Utah State Press Association, a panel discussion on 'Editor's Columns' was one of the Saturday morning events . . . Editor's columns come in all sizes and shapes, just like editors. . . there are the short ones, the fat ones, the tall, lean ones, and those that are just about average. Some, like the editors that write them, are happy-go-lucky; some are serious and some are not so serious. Some can be critical at times, and then be a little on the light-hearted side, with an occasional joke to brighten up the day. "Editor's columns sometimes can be like the persistent wife (persistent is a safer word than nagging) - they just keep at 'ya until the desire is accomplished! "In this vein of reflection of the writer, REGularly Speaking of recent weeks has been very much reflective of the editor.. . missing!" 536
