Title Page294
Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION Western Paper Company name, maintained ongoing interest in the organization's affairs as well as providing continuing support of its programs. Julian Newman rose in that firm from a young clerk to top management between 1936 and his retirement in 1987. He headed both WNU and Western Paper Company, and in that time participated with near-dedication in association activities. He describes Jones' role in these terms: "According to virtually all of the people I've talked to who were around during the years following 1917, John E. Jones had more to do with getting USPA together than anybody else. "He has a real knack for conciliation. He's the type of person that can get two people together during a meal and talk and after it's over everybody gets up feeling better about things." It took time, but Jones' persistent, though tactful, advocacy of a united organization gradually eroded the hard feelings. UNA members slowly brought the strength of their association into the diminished ranks of USPA and by the outset of the 1920s the division was only an unpleasant memory; UNA totally dissolved. Jones was a member of a printing-related family. His grandfather was a typesetter for the Louisville (Kentucky) Courier-Journal. His father, J. B. Jones, once foreman of Western Newspaper Union in Dallas, was the founder of American Paper Company and later vice president of Western Newspaper Union. After teaching history in a Texas high school for a year, Johnny joined APC in Mexico City, then became manager of the Monterrey, Mexico office of National Paper & Type, an export arm of American Type Founders.
