´╗┐Kiwanians Mark Founding Of Club

220 Attend Program On 25th Anniversary

Two hundred and twenty Ann Arbor Kiwanians and their wives celebrated the 25th anniversary of the founding of the local chapter with a special program last night at the Masonic Temple.

Highlights of the program were the installation of 13 long-time Ann Arbor members into the organization's Legion of Honor by Michigan District Gov. Daniel J. Heathcote of Kalamazoo, and the showing of a color and sound film depicting the Kiwanian-sponsored project for children at University hospital.

Produced by the University of Michigan under the direction of Dorothy Ketcham, social service director at the hospital, the film will later be distributed to other Kiwanis organizations throughout the state.

Legion Of Honor

Inducted into the Legion of Honor were: Past Presidents Dr. Leonard P. Fisher, Charles A. Fisher, Judge Jay G. Pray and Howard L. Spedding, past Lt.-Gov. Viggo O. Nelson, anti Fred W. Gross, Francis G. Hamilton, Albert L. McDonald, Frank B. Ohlinger, Charles H. Schroen, J. Fred Staebler, Eugene Stein and Calvin A. Wolf.

The gathering was further featured by the appearance of several widely-known state Kiwanians in addition to Gov. Heathcote. They included three of the four original founders of Kiwanis International, Donald Johnson and Harry Young of Detroit and James Cowdin of Highland Park; and past international trustee Michael A. Gorman, editor of the Flint Journal.
