NATIONAL AMERICAN ESKIMO DOG ASSOCIATION MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Frank Morlock, Rd 2, Box 422-G, Howell, NJ 07731
First of all I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for voting me into the
office of President of the National American Eskimo Dog Association. The other members of the Executive Committee are: Irv Willie, of Wisconsin, Vice President; Kathy Foti, of Maryland,
Secretary/Treasurer; Dick Kortemeir, of Oklahoma, Publicity Director and Evan Ruff, of Oklahoma, Parlimentarian. The Executive Committee was elected to serve the members of the National American Eskimo Dog Association in its entirety and speaking for myself, this is what I plan on doing. I’m sure that the other members will do the same.
I would like suggestions and ideas from the entire membership on how we can better the advancement of the American Eskimo Dog, the National American Eskimo Dog Association and State associations.
Dick Kortemeir has been asked to get in contact with Dog World to ascertain if we can get a listing in their publication of all up-coming American Eskimo Dog· Shows, hopefully to run on a month-to-month basis.
We will be having a quarterly newsletter. This was voted on at the National. Dick is looking to get the first issue out sometime in January 1980. A committee will be set up, if it has not already been set up to set policy for the newsletter.
The following committees will be established within a couple of months: Breeders Directory, all members of the Board of Directors, By-Laws Committee, Policy Committee, Junior Showmanship Rules Committee and a Committee to write a Code of Ethics.
On my return from the National I stopped by the United Kennel Club and spoke with
Mr – Miller. A report on our meeting has been sent to all State Presidents. The meeting lasted some two hours.
After the meeting Joan Grabala, Kathie Becker, Paul Donehoo, Jr. and myself were given a tour of the United Kennel Club by Mr. Miller. The new offices of the U.K.C. are very impressive and are quite a change from the old offices which I toured a few years ago. If any of you are in the vicinity of the United Kennel Club in Kalamazoo, Michigan, it would be well worth your time to stop in and see where your dogs are registered.
In closing I would like to wish you, your family and your American Eskimos a very
happy Holiday Season and a very prosperous 1980.

The National Show on Saturday, September 15, 1979 was attended by fifty-six
American Eskimo dogs and their owners. Thirty-seven dogs were entered in the
regular conformation classes, ten in the Champion of Champions class, three in
junior showmanship and six in novice puppy.
The day was warm, just right for a dog show. Many of the exhibitors stayed outside with the dogs during the show. They would go inside to watch the classes. The nights were cold. Many of us did not bring winter clothes to keep warm.
About fifty people attended the banquet. We enjoyed the food and had a very nice
evening and a pleasant meeting. Copies of the minutes of the meeting have been sent
to all state presidents.
Mr. Richard Kortemeier of Oklahoma was the judge. He did an excellent job and the
Board of Directors wishes to thank him for working so hard and doing a fine job. We
also extend our thanks and appreciation to the Wisconsin American Eskimo Dog
Association for their superb planning and organizing of the show and the activities.
Thank you WAEDA!
