Come September every year the
    good bunch is back for a day.
They're the stalwarts of your local
alumni clubs-the people who plan
your meetings, nag committees, coax
scholarship money into growing, and
wash the coffee cups. Their annual
trek to the campus is called the Club
Leadership Conference. This year
nearly 250 made it on September
25th. The meeting site was the hand-
some new Union South, where they
swapped ideas and met for the morn-
ing session. (Opposite page, with
WAA President Bob Wilson '51 in
foreground). They got reports from
President Weaver and Chancellor
Young; met Elroy and umpteen
coaches from all sports; talked with
Arlie about what WAA is doing and
          SPARKPLUGS, with their awards,
wants to do for the University, the
students and you.
   Then they honored six of their own
 (below), the sharpest of the sharp
 for 1971, the Sparkplug Award win-
 ners. Alphabetically, they were John
 Langer '53 of the Vacationland Club
 (Baraboo); Dale Nordeen '50 Madi-
 son; Simon Peterson '26 who earned
 his honors with the Boston Club be-
 fore moving to Scottsdale; Bob Rich-
 ardson '69 Green County Club
 (Monroe); Mildred Schauz '41, Mil-
 waukee; and John Troller '55 Cin-
 After which a toddy, a typically
 sumptuous Union lunch with typical
 fudge-bottom pie. Then the LSU
 game, which was the only part of
 the day that didn't follow Arlie's
are Langer, Troller, Schauz, Richardson and
Local club leaders come
  back to learn how to
     be even better
