Description UPA'S NATIONAL PARTICIPATION places of tourist interest. Buses took the conventioneers to Kennecott Copper's pit; to a luncheon in Brighton at the head of Big Cottonwood canyon; to Hill Air Force Base, the Browning Museum in Ogden and a barbeque and rodeo in Morgan. Saltair Resort, unfortunately, had been destroyed by fire in 1959, so there was no organized tour of Great Salt Lake on the bus journey sponsored by Kennecott. Numerous visitors did travel there on their own, needless to say, since the lake is almost synonymous with the state of Utah. A post-convention trip by Union Pacific rail and bus took a sizeable number of conventioneers to Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park and Las Vegas. There they found what they'd been told about 'Vegas being the nation's entertainment bargain was entirely true. Paul Smith of the Rock Rapids (Iowa) Reporter, NEA's president, was invited to speak to Rotarians of Salt Lake City on the day preceding the convention's opening. During an impressive half-hour talk, he told the business and professional group, "Freedom of information is not freedom for newspapers or for newspaper people alone. It is the freedom of all private citizens to know, to think, to say and print what they think; the right of the private citizen to have access to the sources of truth without fear of reprisal, to seek information and to pass it on." To the dismay of convention planners, J. Bracken Lee turned what was to be a brief Wednesday evening welcoming talk into a 45-minute dissertation on the illegality of Federal income taxes. Once Utah's Governor, he'd rejoined politics by becoming Mayor of Salt Lake City and was at the podium because his gubernatorial successor, George D. Clyde, was out of the state. First Security Bank, sponsor of the opening night banquet, then screened its new documentary film, "Frontiers." The Latter-day Saints Church again hosted convention delegates at a breakfast on Thursday which was followed by a Tabernacle Choir concert. Ezra Taft Benson was the principal speaker. Then one of several key figures in the Church hierarchy, he was destined to become its spiritual leader. Benson 379
