I V / J -- Von Nuyt, WNCE T H E N E W S North.J-A N*.te*-JA Jane Wyman Will Direct Arthritis Fund Campaign Jane Wyman today had been named national campaign chairman for the A r t h riti.s Foundation's 1973 fund-iaising drives JANE WYMAN Named Chairman The appointment of the Academy Award-winning actress was announced at a press conference in New York by Charles B. Harding, chairman of the board of the foundation, and Daniel E. Button, president and executive director of the organization. Working Member Miss Wyman told ic- porters her position is no sinecure. "I'm not a casual joiner," she said. "When 1 do belong to an organization, I'm a working member." Her record backs her up. Miss Wyman has been a leading volunteer for the foundation's Southern California chapter in Los Angeles for a number of years. She has the major responsibility for recruiting talent, producing and presenting the chapter's telethon, a key fund-raising event. Miss Wyman also serves on the Arthritis Foundation's national board of directors and is a member ol the executive committee. Filmed Messages This committee does the real work of operating the foundation, according to board chairman Harding, "making key policy decisions that affect our efforts to bring help and hope to the 50,000,000 Americans who have arthritis." The actress has filmed a series of television messages for The Arthritis Foundation, and she will be making personal appearances throughout the year. The Arthritis Founda- t i o n is the voluntary health organization which for 25 years has spearheaded the fight against a r t h ritis through programs of research, patient and community services and professional and public health education. Name Library at CSUN for Late Dr. Delmar Oviatt The new library at California State University, Northridge, was named in honor of Dr. Delmar T. Oviatt by the Board of Trustees of the California State University and Colleges. Dr. Oviatt, who died in December 1971, was the campus' principal academic officer from 1955 until ]969 when he retired as vice president for academic affairs. T he Trustees' action was announced by Board Chairman Karl L. Wente of Livermore and Chancellor Glenn S. Dumke following the presentation of a recommendation by Uni- Honor Ranch Sewer Work Plans Drawn L o s Angeles County B o a r d o f Supervisors Tuesday will be asked to approve plans and specifications for a $700,000 sewer project at the Sheriff's Wayside Honor Rancho in Castaic. County Engineer Harvey T. Brandt is recommending the Board approve the plans and call for bids to be opened March 3. Brandt said the planned project would permit the abandonment of the exist- i n g i n adequate sewer treatment plant by constructing an intercepter sewer to convey sewage to a regional sewage treatment facility nearby. The county engineer noted that the project would be partially funded b y s t a t e and federal grants. He said the county has accepted a grant offer of $75,000 from the state and $225,000 from the federal ' government. But, he pointed out that the offers are for maximum grant amounts and t h e c o unty ultimately could receive less. T h e t otal estimated project cost is $700,000. Brandt said it would take 150 calendar days to complete the project. versity President James W. Cleary. "It is most appropriate t h a t t his building be named for Dr. Oviatt, whose guiding insistence on academic excellence long stimulated the in- t e 11 e ctual life of the Northridge community," Chancellor Dumke said. Under Construction The 137,503-square-foot library, costing 87,500,000, is under construction at the center of the Northridge campus. Completion is scheduled this summer. Born in Canada, Dr Oviatt 18 years ago became dean of what was then known as the San Fernando Valley Campus of Los Angeles State College of Applied Arts and Sciences. Successively, after the campus became San Fernando Valley State College in 1958, Dr. Oviatt held the positions of dean of instruction and dean of the college before being appointed vice president in 1962. Reappoint Advisers The university's Faculty Senate approved a resolution favoring naming of the library in honor of Dr. Oviatt as "a man who con- t r i b u t ed greatly and uniquely to the life of this institution." In a separate action, T r u s t e es reappointed Atty. Nathan O. Freedman of Northridge and Ferdinand Mendenhall of Van Nuys to the CSU, N o r t h r idge, Advisory Board. F r e edman, honorary mayor of Northridge, is a commissioner of the Los Angeles Dept. of Water and Power. He is a member of the Feather River Project Advisory Board and past president of the Northridge Chamber of Commerce. Mendenhall is chairman of the Executive Committee of the Los Angeles Mayor's Economic Development Board. He is past president of the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee of the California Newspaper Publishers Association.
