Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION hold for several years. Harrison R. Merrill was lauded by the delegates with a new title, "Poet Lariat." Tight economic conditions resulting from the depression curbed the division meeting plan, it was reported. Fortieth annual meeting. Saturday, Sunday, December 3-4, 1932, Newhouse Hotel, Salt Lake City. A. Frank Gaisford, American Fork Citizen, elected president. The convention marked another departure from traditional schedule since it was held in December of the same year in which a January meeting had taken place.

Banks were sufficiently unstable that depositors, lacking confidence in them, were withdrawing savings, further jeopardizing the financial institutions. Yet a majority of Utah's newspapers were surviving, albeit in some cases on shaky ground. Forty-second annual meeting. Friday-Saturday, January 11-12, 1935, Hotel Newhouse. J. A. Owens, Provo Herald, was elected president, the association's first daily press leader 336
