MR. PHILIP BROWN has been associated with the Los Angeles City Planning Department, the Los Angeles Welfare Planning Council, and was director of operations of the Los Angeles Housing Authority. After graduate work at UCLA he became an associate professor of planning at USC for three years, followed by two years with USAID in Pakistan and Brazil. He was most recently Planner Director in Brooklyn, New York. He will speak to us on some aspect of local planning.

One of two full-time chaplains at the R&R Center, Ft. DeRussy, MAJOR GEARY has performed so many marriages during the past 18 months (over 500) he is frequently called "the marrying chaplain." Star Bulletin Writer, Judy Chase, reported in an interview that the major besides counseling prospective brides and grooms and marrying them, often doubles as father of the bride, acts as wedding director, has on call ministers of various faiths, florists, photographers and bakers, and has even been asked by parents to chaperone their daughters and find hotel accommodations for families. This busy man also finds time to be on the Board of Directors of Honolulu Council of Churches.

Major Geary is a Texan, a member of the Christian Methodist Church and married. His wife teaches in Nanakuli. They have a son, 10, and a daughter, 9. He has lived or travelled in several southern states, Africa, Japan, Thailand and Vietnam. Major Geary will speak on housing as he has seen it in his travels, followed by a question-answer period.
