Judd Hill Yetter is a journalist of ability and though but thirty years of age has had several years of strenuous and practical experience in the publishing and printing business. He is a native Kansan, born at Ogallah, Trego county, Jan. 6, 1881, a son of Christopher Columbus and Elizabeth (Keith) Yetter. After receiving the usual common school education in the public schools of Ogallah he became a student at the Methodist Wesleyan Academy and later at the Wesleyan University at Salina and was graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Arts in the class of 1904. Following his graduation he was employed three months on the "Salina Journal" and then accepted a position with the "Topeka Capital," becoming circulation manager for the "Mail and Breeze," and later manager for all the Capper publications. He was thus employed from September, 1904, until 1907. In the latter year he became one of the organizers of the Central Publishing Company at Salina, Kan., and was elected to be its secretary and manager. Hon. J. R. Burton became its president and with a capital of $50,000, the largest and best equipped printing plant in northwestern Kansas and one of the best in the whole state was established. The Central Publishing Company has about forty employees on its pay roll, whose combined salaries aggregate about $25,000 per year. The establishment is equipped to turn out practically any style of job work known to the printer's art and makes a specialty of loose leaf work, hotel registers and pamphlets, and publishes one of the most neatly printed and best edited newspapers in the state, the "Salina Daily Union," which advocates the principles and policies of the Democratic party, and enjoys a very large circulation and a successful and constantly growing business. Mr. Yetter is a member of the National Association of Daily Newspaper Managers, a member of the Kansas Wesleyan University Alumni Association, and a member of the First Presbyterian Church at Salina. He is also a director of the Salina Merchants Association and of the Salina Commercial Club.

On Sept. 19, 1907, Mr. Yetter married Miss Elizabeth F. Bartlett, a daughter of Albert W. and Anna (Graham) Bartlett, formerly of Topeka, Kan., but now an orange grower at Pomona, Cal. Mr. and Mrs. Yetter have one son, Robert Graham, born Jan. 11, 1911.
