Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION most outstanding hostelry for the first time since 1913 and held in mid-year rather than the winter months. "Two thirds of the editors of the state attended," wrote Karl S. Carlton in his Beaver County News. Mayor C. E. Nelsen of Salt Lake City, Gov. Charles R. Mabey and Dr. C. N. Jensen, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, were prominent speakers and the association drew upon one of its own, William R. Holmes of the Box Elder Journal, for a keynote talk on industry matters. Thirtieth annual meeting. Monday, October 8, 1923, Hotel Newhouse, Salt Lake City. Karl S. Carlton, Beaver County News, Milford, elected president. It was a convention which concentrated on utilizing its members as speakers and outgoing president W. P. Epperson strongly urged his fellow newsmen to "get into things political. " He stressed that he didn't mean "party politics" but "takingpart in everything concerning the government, not only of the nation, but of the state, county, school and town." Said the respected Kaysville editor: "It's the duty of all editors to help in obtaining the very best and most efficient administration in all parts of our government!" Delegates, following a talk by Gov. Charles R. Mabey, vowed to react to his urging and expand their summer meetings to more widespread areas of Utah in order to give themselves information with which to "sell Utah," not only to its people, but to those beyond the state's boundaries. Thirtv-first annual meeting. Monday, January 26, 1925, Hotel Utah, Salt Lake City. Dennis Wood, Nephi Times-News, elected president. It was part of a series in which USPA met three times in two years, attempting to determine what time of the year would attract the most attendance. The meeting between October 8, 1923 and January 26, 1925 took place July 5-6-7, 1924 in Panguitch and at Bryce Canyon. Aside from Gov. George H. Dem, the convention speakers were selected from the association's membership. Appearing on the agenda 332
