Title Page662
Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION "That sort of thing is so common in Russia, in Nazi Germany and in other dictatorships, that every citizen lives in terror of being arrested without warrant, imprisoned without access to counsel, subjected to physical maltreatment and mental pressure to confess to some offense of which he has not the least knowledge, and sent to his death without the right to appeal to a higher court "We do not sentence Americans to death because they have departed from their political party line as they do in Russia, or because they are Jews, as they do in Germany. And the Supreme Court has reiterated, more vigorously than ever, the elemental American doctrine that even the lowliest Negro has the same rights to a fair trial and a full hearing as the most highly-placed citizen of the land." That disregard for human rights in Russia and Germany blossomed, in 1941, in the United States entrance into World War Two. History recounts the profusion of ill-founded hearsay -- the military would label it "scuttlebutt" -- that followed the surprise December 7th attack on Pearl Harbor. The Herald editorially cautioned, "While it is wise to be on the alert, to adopt every protective measure, we should seek to avoid war hysteria. We should not accept every rumored event which we read or hear about. Wait in confidence until the government makes its official announcement as to what has actually happened. Everybody can help in this great struggle. Keep busy. Keep your faith. Avoid hysteria!" After the war, as his base paper grew and his commercial printing firm prospered, Conover looked for other opportunities. The first came in Mt. Pleasant, where Burke McArthur had decided to retire after 36 years at the helm of the Pyramid, one of Utah's oldest weeklies. Harrison and Thomas Judd jointly acquired the paper on October 3, 1947. As it turned out, it wasn't Judd's "cup of tea" though he handled it well as a resident publisher. In 1950, his interest was purchased by the Springville owner and for the ensuing 45 years the Pyramid has been in his family. 662
