Description THOSE WHO PROVIDED LEADERSHIP Payson Globe, was eight months into his 29th year when he asssumed leadership. The senior publisher to accept USPA's reins was John Stahle, Jr. The longtime Davis County Clipper publisher was 64 when he took office in 1968. His father, a founding member, never headed the organization, but was active for 63 years in production of the Clipper from 1891 until his death in 1954. When he'd become president in 1927, Dr. C. Max Markus of Richfield was 63, only months younger than President Stahle would be four decades later. A colorful Austrian-born journalist, Markus held a Doctorate of Philosophy degree from the University of Vienna and had purchased the Reaper in 1920. W. P. Epperson of Kaysville was 62 years of age at the beginning of his presidential term in 1922. Longevity was by no means missing in the lives of the association's leaders.

Samuel Raddon, Park City, and William Wallis, Vernal, were 89; Charles England, Logan, 88; Clifton Memmott, Roosevelt, 87 and John Stahle, Jr., Bountiful, 86. Kaysville newsmen figured prominently on the reverse side of that coin. Albert Epperson was a heart attack victim at only 44 years of age and both Charles V. K. Saxton and Clyde Epperson passed away at age 50. All three were associated with the Kaysville Reflex when president. William Long, Brigham City, died at 49; Frank Beckwith, Delta, succumbed at 51 and Jack J. Warner, Spanish Fork, at 52. Salt Lake City, with 11, has produced the greatest number of leaders. Five each were born in Provo and Spanish Fork. Among other states, Idaho leads with five while Colorado produced four and Nebraska and Ohio three each. Of foreign- 195
