Description THE LURE OF NEWSPAPERING won at the polls, met Rosenbaum on the street and, after an exchange of words, began an exchange of punches. It didn't end 'til policemen hauled the new Mayor to jail. Rosenbaum had the last laugh. His headline read: "Logan's Slugger-Elect. Our next Mayor arrested for assault and battery." Known to contemporaries as "Andy," Rosenbaum may have carried the scars to the organizational meeting of UPA, held in Lehi only a few days later on December 17th.

We would suggest that editors who live in a belligerent community make a breast plate of old plate-matter and wear it under their shirts." Only a few weeks later the Star appended to its story the information that "J. J. Flahiff, the fat man from Arkansas, has gone north to the Klondike."
