While summer meant a relaxed schedule for many chapter members, your national headquarters staff
was busy furthering the APO cause. The National Board of Directors met Sept. 7 at Cleveland, Ohio,
and adopted the 1968-69 budget. The meeting was presided over by National President E. Ross
Dr. Herold C. Hunt, Professor of Education at Harvard University, and Marsh M. Ammerman, Assistant
Chief Scout Executive, were introduced at the meeting as new board members. Dr. Hunt is a
nationally known figure in the field of education. He served as Under Secretary of Health,
Education and Welfare in the Eisenhower administration. He will represent the National President
of B.S.A. on APO's Board of Directors.
Brother Ammerman, a charter member of Chi, UCLA, will represent Alden G. Barber, Chief Scout
Executive, also a Chi alumnus.
The fraternity was represented with a display at the National Explorer Conference and the National
Conference of Scout Executives, both held at Colorado State University in late August. Past
National President M. R. Disborough presented a plaque on behalf of the fraternity to Brother
Barber, the first Chief Scout Executive ever to have served as a chapter member. Nearly one-half
of the 4,000 scout executives stood when Brother Disborough called on those who had been
undergraduate members of APO or advisors to be recognized.
