Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION he died in Salt Lake City on December 6,1979. In his autobiography, Warner remembered Andrew Jensen predicting he, too, might become a publisher. "/ knew Mr. Jensen to be a power for good because of his paper," he recalled. "He was a man looked up to as a civic leader and the thought that I might succeed to his position and influence in the life of the community was an air castle of such nebulous structure that it had never been formed in my mind."

A decade later, he became a part-owner of the Box Elder News, another of the city's respected publications. When he retired in 1941, Solomon Wixom had spent nearly a half-century as a journalist in the town of his birth. The Bugler's plant, like almost all its counterparts in communities throughout the nation, produced both a newspaper and commercial printing. It belonged to an era when these small but important establishments frequently displayed a sign reading: "We print anything except wallpaper and money. You can use our newspaper for wallpaper." Wixom was 15 years old when he started with the Bugler on August 4, 1890. Three years later he became its foreman. Unlike most such publications in that time, it had a comparatively large staff. Mansfield Snow, who had founded it on June 14, 1890, was editor and his sister, Virginia Snow, was his assistant. A talented writer, she later taught at the University of Utah. J. P. Jacobsen was the foreman and Wixom joined 650
