Title Page381
Description UPA'S NATIONAL PARTICIPATION for a jet aircraft "fly-over" and an examination of its museum of yesteryear's planes. And when they reached the John N. Browning Armory in Ogden for Friday's luncheon, they heard prophetic words from Dr. Lyman G. Bonner, president of Hercules Powder Company. His firm was then the world leader in the manufacture of solid fuels for missiles and rockets. "Man's curiosity is such that given the means to travel to the moon or to another planet," Dr. Bonner said, "it is inevitable that he will do so and these means are now rapidly becoming available." Hercules, Sperry, Thiokol, Marquardt and Boeing, all air materiel suppliers with outlets in the Ogden area, co-sponsored the luncheon. Enroute from Ogden to Morgan, convention delegates were witnesses to a realistic enactment of the capture and vigilante-style "hanging" of a Western outlaw. The show was staged by Ogden's Chamber of Commerce under the direction of Bernie Diamond, executive secretary. Morgan had the full attention of conventioneers in the afternoon and evening. H. C. (Mac) McConaughy of the Morgan County News marshalled the resources of his community to provide a complete calendar of entertainment -- and the generous contributions of friends of the press made it all come together. Como Springs Resort afforded horseback riding, swimming, jeep rides and roller skating. Coca-Cola hosted an hour-long reception prior to a chuck wagon supper for which United States Steel's Geneva Division picked up the tab. At the evening rodeo, admissions were paid by Ideal Cement Company, located at nearby Henefer. To association manager Gordon Owen, a Western enthusiast, went the honor of leading participants into the rodeo arena astride an impressive white horse. Guy Easterly, publisher of the LaFollette, Tennessee Press, was elected the successor to President Paul Smith at Friday morning's business meeting. And Utah's own Charles W. Claybaugh was elevated to Vice President. Another future president was also elected at the Salt Lake City convention. 381
