District 13; joe Holland, District 14; \N’il1iam McClain, District 15; and Sammie Guy, District 16, A tie in the voting
in District 9 was broken by the toss of a coin. Serving as the elected representative will be Cawood Smith. The other
contestant, Phil Mclntosh, has been appointed to the board as a inember-at—1arge by President Charles Landrum, jr.
Newly elected oliicers of the UK Alumni Association for 1974 are Charles Landrum, jr., president; George Atkins,
vice·president; jay Brumheld, secretary, and jane Morris, treasurer.
The by—laws were changed to allow constituent college alumni groups such as those in the Colleges of Law, Phar-
macy, Nursing, Home Economics, to operate through the central UK Alumni Association. By joining the UK
Alumni Association and one or two constituent groups, an alunmus will be able to have full privileges of the Na-
tional alumni association and the constituent organizations will be able to use the records, mailing arrangements
and physical facilities of the alumni house for their activities.
Committee reports and announcements included these items of interest:
• Life memberships have increased significantly in recent month;
• A satisfactory number of members of the class of ’72 are joining the Association in follow-up to their year’s
free membership;
• Alumni exceeded the challenge of james S. Hudnall by contributing more than $340,000 to the 1973 Annual-
Giving Campaign, an $80,000 increase over 1972;
• Proposed alumni tours for 1974 include the February trip to Australia, New Zealand and Tahiti; an August
trip to Zurich and Geneva, Switzerland; a September trip to Bavaria departing from Pittsburg, and a November trip
to London, to London and Moscow or to London and Lenniugrad.

The Hall of Distinguished Alumni is the most coveted award be- PR
stowed by the UK Alumni Association. Once again the Association is ` LC
seeking nomination of those persons deserving such recognition.   Us
Nominations received from the membership will be screened by the PO.
Awards Committee which was appointed by the Board of Directors. Chair-   C0!
man of the committee is Charles O. Landrum, Covington. Also serving E
on the committee are E. ]. Nutter, Xenia, OH, and L. Berkley Davis,  
l/Vashington, DC. c
If you wish to nominate a UK alumnus, return the nomination form '
(at right) no later than ]une 1, 1974. Be sure to include complete and ac-
curate information on the nominee.  
The Hall was established in 1962-63 with the opening of the Alum- i
ni House on campus. At that time 85 honorees were selected and installed. l
During the University’s Centennial Year in 1965 an additional 39
were chosen. And, in 1967, three more were honored thusly. The last in- l
duction in 1970 added 19 to the roll for a total of 146.
The list (page 4) is, indeed, an elite one with men and women rep-
resenting every walk of life. Each has distinguished himself and the Uni-
versity by his achievements since leaving the campus. E
