Alumni Executive Committee Meets
The annual payroll of the college and its
hospital and clinic is $611,000.00 he said.
He estimated expenditures here, including
those by the college's students and their

parking areas.

ASSOCIATION MEETS Interest in alumni activities reached an
all-time high in recent years during the
Sixty-Fourth Annual American Osteopathic
Association Convention held in Kansas
City, Missouri. Dr. Charles L. Naylor of
Ravenna, Ohio, president of the National
Alumni Association for the past two years
commented as follows: "When we were
reorganizing the Alumni Association three
years ago six people made up the House of
Delegates,two years ago there were ten
people, last year there were twelve, and
I'm very happy to say that today there
were thirty-five of our graduates who met
at a breakfast meeting to discuss the pres-
ent and the future of our national organi-
zation and our College. It is very signifi-
cant to note that during this reorganiza-
tion period we have developed an excellent
constitution and by-laws. We asked the
College Board of Trustees to permit us to
nominate three of our representatives to
serve on Ithe Board of Trustees. As you
know, this was granted to us and now we
have three representatives on the College
