Fearing for its survival, Baltimore's Engineering Society is launching a full-scale marketing drive in an attempt to stop the decline in its membership rolls. The 87-year-old club has hired a public relations firm, laid plans for corporate advertising, begun a direct-mail drive and cut fees for a membership drive that began recently.Those are only the latest moves. The club restructured its rules last summer to allow up to 49 percent of its membership to consist of non-engineers. Still, its membership has slipped to 1,200 -- down from 1,500 five years ago."

Pro Football Hall of Famer Dick Butkus went to court and won a case against the organization that was using his name on the award for college football's top linebacker - obviously, the Butkus Award. Butkus revoked his permission allowing the Downtown Athletic Club in Orlando to use his name for the award last spring. The award had been presented since 1985. Not only did a federal court rule that the organization couldn't continue to use Butkus' name but the judge also opened the door for Butkus to seek damages.
