Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION change from tradition since George L. Crowther of the Salt Lake Times had served as vice president during the previous year, ordinarily a step toward assuming the presidency. The nation had been plunged into World War II following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, so there was considerable concern about the future when delegates met for this conclave. The theme, developed in a talk by Salt Lake City's Mayor, Ab Jenkins, was "What effect the war and its accompanying change from the ordinary activities will have upon the newspaper business." A. A. Campbell, advertising manager of the Salt Lake Tribune, spoke on "Advertising in a Crisis." M. I. Thompson, publisher of Utah Labor News, discussed "Consumers and the Press." Topic of H. J. Plumhof of the Utah State Publicity and Industrial Development Commission, the Saturday night banquet speaker, was "Utah and National Defense." He pointed out that 25,000 new residents have moved or will be moving into Utah in the near future. Fiftieth annual meeting. Saturday-Sunday, January 9-10, 1943, Hotel Newhouse. Harrison Conover, Springville Herald, was elected president. The group toured the Army Air Force basic training center at Camp Kearns, where they were guests for lunch. Pvt. Fielding K. Smith, stationed at Ft. Douglas, was the banquet speaker. A former Salt Lake City advertising executive, he told delegates a bit about Army life and the military's objectives. Herb F. Kretchman, editor of the Salt Lake Telegram, discussed editorial management of war-time newspapers. Fiftv-first annual meeting. Fridav-Saturdav-Sundav. January 14-15-16, 1944, Hotel Newhouse.
