March 8, 1949 - Klaus first prexy of Packer Alumni group: A center, guard and halfback - former capacity, that is - were elected the first officers of the newly-organized Green Bay Packer Alumni club at the organization's second meeting.

The new president is Fee Klaus, the giant center, who played from 1920 to 1924. Vice-president is Carl Zoll, a guard from 1919 to 1922. Dave Zuidmulder, half-back in 1929-30, is the secretary-treasurer.

The group - first of its kind in the 30-year history of the team - spent most of the meeting discussing purposes and objectives.

Three definite purposes were put into the minutes. Purpose No. 1 is to assist any Packer player who desires to locate permanently in Green Bay. This would include helping players to find part or full-time jobs. Purpose No. 2 is to offer the Packers assistance in recruiting players. Purpose No. 3 concerned the holding of quarterback meetings during the Packer season.
