Description "YOUNG" PAPERS THAT ACTUALLY ARE OLD Edith M. Nielson, who'd been an employee for four years, assumed publishing duties. Jarvis, the 1931 president of Utah State Press Association, moved to California where he would become widely-known as the legislator who initiated Proposition 13, a tax-limitation measure. R. Howard Ridge was named publisher of the Magna and Garfield weeklies on December 24, 1937, a few days after he had married Miss Nielson, who then became the editor. Publication of the Garfield Leader was suspended on September 6, 1957. On May 1, 1972 the Times was sold to its present publisher, J.

Holliday until March 1, 1956 and Clifford Halls 'til August, 1956. Samuel J., son of Loren, then completed his military service and took over publishing duties.
