Title Page460
Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION instructor, he was, instead, attached to the staff of Naval Aviation News in Washington, D. C. Before the war ended, he would also practice his journalistic skills aboard an aircraft carrier in the South Pacific. As he departed for military duty, he had moved Waynie, their son Charles Conley (Tuff) and daughter Kathy to Brigham City. For the remainder of the war, Waynie worked with the Longs in publishing the newspaper. Clay possessed a sense of humor that was never far beneath the surface, a trait substantiated by a fellow NAN staff member, Barkley (Buck) Ewing. He remembers that the two of them were detailed to San Diego to cover a story. Travel arrangements completed, Ewing has recounted to the Clay-baugh family, Clay told him they had berths on the train's only Pullman sleeping car, "and the rest are all occupied by uniformed females!" He let Ewing speculate on the fun to be had with the WACS, WAVES or whatever other female service personnel would be their travelling companions on the four-day journey. And then, with uproarious laughter, spoiled the 'daydreams' when they reached the car and 'Buck' found the females were all uniformed, all right ~ Catholic nuns being transferred to a Texas convent! Later on that same trip, the two were sent on to Hanford, Washington to assist in releasing information concerning the atomic bomb. Plutonium developed at Hanford was used in the instrument of destruction dropped on Nagasaki, Japan, August 9, 1945, three days after the uranium version had fallen on Hiroshima. Like almost all their countrymen, neither Clay nor Buck had ever heard of the atom bomb. The war ended, Claybaugh returned to the Brigham City newspapers and settled into active management; in 1950 purchasing Long's interest. His former partner became executive director of Colorado Press Association, an affiliation that continued until his death in 1S>64. The Claybaugh's third child, son Van Wayne, was born in Brigham City. Like his older brother, he became a News-Journal staff member after completing a military tour of duty in Vietnam. 460
