as stated in the adopted by-laws is 'To unite into one
organization, regardless of religion, race, creed, color, or
nationality, all persons interested in the preservation and
exhibition of Cockshutt/Co-op Farm Equipment and related
subsidiaries and affiliates.' Over 40 people were present at
the organizational meeting held in Columbus. People from Illinois,
Indiana, Michigan, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, and Ontario were in
attendance. A dinner was served before the meeting. Acting chairman
for the meeting was Ken Claar of Painesville, Ohio. Diana Myers of
LaRue, Ohio was acting secretary, and Anna May Schwaderer was
acting treasurer. Club by-laws were discussed and adopted.
Twenty-one directors were appointed to the board and club officers
elected. The new officers of the club are: president, Ken Claar;
vice president, Phil Heisey of Spencerport, New York; secretary,
Rita Bader of Marion, Ohio; treasurer, Bob Schwaderer, of Marion,
Ohio; and membership secretary, Diana Myers.
