Description STATE CONCLAVES SINCE 1894 made during the association's 1949 Winter Convention. Fifty-sixth annual meeting. Friday, Saturday and Sunday, January 14-15-16, 1949, Hotel Newhouse. Hal G. MacKnight, Price Sun-Advocate, was elected president. Over 100 delegates braved severe weather conditions in order to attend as 1949 went into the records as one of the worst winters in state history.

He told delegates that columns are now supplanting editorials in the weekly newspaper and exert considerable editorial influence.
