Title Page383
Description UPA'S NATIONAL PARTICIPATION Publisher, then the association's monthly magazine, commented: "Mr. Poole reported that his wife received praise from local residents as well as letters from people in other states complimenting her for the vividness of her articles. Her stories were written through the eyes of an 'ordinary tourist,' but were so descriptive that one reader said he felt that he had already toured the state after reading them." Not surprisingly, Dan Valentine frequently capitalized on his name in his daily "Nothing Serious" column by awarding a "Valentine" to someone or some group. On Sunday after the convention's close, he wrote: "Making a big convention come off smoothly is a work of art, and I think a collective Valentine belongs to Utah members of the press who hosted the recently completed annual convention of the National Editorial Association. Comments from conventioning editors have been wonderful, and several hundred American editors will return to their home communities with a glowing memory of the state of Utah . . . public relations at its best. . . and a Valentine to all concerned." Utah's participation in the national association was at its peak during a two-decade period of time in the 1960s and 1970s. Not only were all of the state's less-than-daily papers members of NEA/NNA, but expenses of the president and vice president were paid to attend its Fall and/or Summer conventions. 383
