Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION Industry of Utah, with which organization Utah Press Association shared an afternoon program of the convention. Forty-fifth annual meeting. Saturday-Sunday, January 15-16, 1938, Hotel Newhouse. Val Cowles, Price Sun-Advocate, was elected president. The Price paper was presented a cup for having the best front page of the year. Speakers were Dr. E. F. Monson, Secretary of State; Harrison R. Merrill of Brigham Young University; John E. Jones, Western Newspaper Union and Hamilton G. (Ham) Park, Salt Lake Tribune columnist.

Forty-sixth annual meeting. Friday-Saturday, January 13-14, 1939, Hotel Newhouse. Leland G. Burress, Bingham Bulletin, was elected president. State officials and members of the Legislature were hosted at a "gridiron" dinner on Saturday night with Edwin Bemis, manager of Colorado Press Association, as speaker. Others on the program were Byrd Trego, publisher of the Blackfoot, Idaho Bulletin, and George H. Watson, Mayor of Alta, who told news people of the possibilities of the growing ski industry.

Elisha Warner, Spanish Fork Press, was elected president. Burton W. Musser, president of the Utah State Bar and a principal speaker, charged "unwarranted encroachment of the Federal government on the rights and privileges of individual Americans." Stanley J.
