Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION He was Jack Lough of the Albion, Nebraska News, who would ascend to NEA's leadership position in 1969. Kennecott Copper Corporation played host to delegates for Saturday's luncheon at Brighton's Mt. Majestic Manor and Alpine Rose Chalet. Those who desired -- and most did -- rode the Majestic Ski Lift. A rather spectacular convention finish was provided Saturday night at what was then Salt Lake City's dance spot, the Terrace Ballroom. Imaginative decor turned it into a nightclub, the Dell Bush Orchestra provided danceable music and the party went on 'til midnight. The Utah association, in conjunction with a mink-raising boxing manager, put an unusual "twist" to the festivities that paid rich publicity dividends. Thanks to the efforts of immediate past USPA president J. Parr Godfrey of the Midvale Sentinel, a mink stole was secured as a contest prize. Marv Jenson, a mink raiser and boxing promoter whose premier fighter, Gene Fullmer, was then the world's middleweight champion, and Salt Lake City furrier Joe Dupler merged their skills to donate the unique award. It was to go to the writer of what judges determined to be the best resume of the 1961 national convention. Or, if appropriate, to his spouse. The winning entry was written by Mrs. Howard Poole, wife of a Davison, Michigan weekly publisher and an active staff member. Presentation of the stole was made at the fall convention of NEA at Chicago's Drake Hotel. Utah Printer & MRS. HOWARD POOLE - the mink stole was her prize. 382
