Association Report
   Highlight of the directors and general meetings of the
 Wisconsin Alumni Association on June 14 was election of
 Sam Ogle '20 to the organization's presidency. The new
 president is public affairs director of a Milwaukee depart-
 ment store (see separate story, this issue.)
   Succeeding Ogle as first vice president is Martin Below
 '24, Chicago engraving firm official, who moves from the
 second vice-presidency, now filled by Don Anderson '25,
 publisher of the Wisconsin State Journal in Madison.
   Other Association officers named include Maxine Plate
 '35, a Milwaukee chocolate firm executive, as secretary, and
 Russell Teckemeyer '18, Madison investment broker, as
 treasurer. (See picture of new officers on page 20.)
   The board also nominated Francis C. Woolard, Chicago,
 to the University Athletic Board. This appointment was
 later confirmed by the Regents. Mrs. Robert Hall (Jessie
 Davis '35), Milwaukee, was named as an alumni representa-
 tive on the Board of Visitors to succeed Miss Plate.
   The Association's retiring president, Dr. John A. Keenan
 '30 automatically becomes chairman of the board of directors.
   In another significant action the directors invited alumni
 of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and its predeces-
 sors (Milwaukee State college and Teachers college) to join
 the Wisconsin Alumni Association.

 butions to the new Alumni House project; by Treasurer
Teckemeyer-who reported a sound financial condition; by

ary" work of the Know Your University Committee; by
