Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION who had no newspaper affiliation, was elected president by a narrow margin, whereupon fifteen editors walked out of the meeting protesting that Peet was "in no way" representative of the association. Conducting an election of their own, the group named Heber C. Hicks, Provo Post, president. The "insurgents," as they were labelled by a Salt Lake Tribune reporter, called the matter "a well-engineered political plot on the part of owners and members of syndicate newspapers to gain control of the association." It caused a divisive split in USPA. Meanwhile, however, USPA, the Utah Development League and the Order of Native Sons held a joint session to plan how to coincide with a movement designed to generate greater state and civic pride and to launch nationwide exploitation of Utah's resources and advantages. Each of Utah's 97 newspapers pledged to support the effort. Twentieth annual meeting. Monday, Tuesday January 13-14, 1913, Commercial Club, Salt Lake City. Although many publishers were "on the fence" as to where their loyalty lay, 32 delegates appeared for the convention, which had the designation Utah Newspaper Association but in fact was virtually the membership of Utah State Press Association. Heber C. Hicks, Provo Post, was elected president. Norman B. Dresser, Millard County Chronicle, was elected president a week later when what was technically the Utah State Press Association met at Hotel Utah, the first time the newspeople had gathered at the capitol city's newest hostelry. Programs of both meetings were subjugated to lengthy discussions of the unfortunate division in what had been an exceptionally dispute-free organization. Twenty-first annual meeting. Saturday, February 21, 1914, Commercial Club, Salt Lake City. The division of thinking was further emphasized by this meeting, which was technically the Utah Newspaper Association, but was in great measure the membership of Utah State Press Association. The formal USPA, on the other hand, did not convene in 1914. 328
