 THE ASPEN INSTITUTE TO HONOR SECRETARY OF DEFENSE DICK CHENEY
 AND ARCO CHIEF EXECUTIVE LODWRICK COOK
 AT NINTH ANNUAL AWARD DINNER OCT. 14
 Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney and ARCO Board Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Lodwrick Cook will be honored for their leadership in the public and private sectors, respectively by The Aspen Institute at its Ninth Annual Award Dinner on Wednesday, Oct. 14, at the Pierre Hotel in New York City.
 In announcing the awards, Institute President David T. McLaughlin said, "The Aspen Institute is privileged to recognize two individuals who have demonstrated extraordinary leadership throughout their professional careers. Their standard of values and ethics personifies the ideals and purposes of the institute. We are honored by our association with them."
 After serving President Gerald Ford as White House Chief of Staff, Cheney was elected to six terms as Congressman from Wyoming, rising through key leadership positions to become House minority whip, the second-ranking Republican leader in Congress. As secretary of defense, he has become responsible for shaping the future of the U.S. military in an age of profound and rapid change in the former Soviet Union, in Eastern Europe and elsewhere around the world. He directed two of the nation's largest military campaigns in recent history -- Operation Just Cause in Panama in December 1989 and Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm from August 1990 through much of 1991. For his leadership in the Persian Gulf war, President Bush awarded him the Medal of Freedom.
 Cook began his career with ARCO in 1956 as an engineer trainee. He has been a member of the ARCO board of directors since 1980, becoming president and chief executive officer in October 1985 and chairman of the board and chief executive officer in January 1986. He is also chairman of the board of ARCO Chemical Company. Cook's interests outside the company have focused on education, youth and minority programs. He has had a long association with Junior Achievement and serves on that organization's national board of directors of which he is past chairman. He serves as a director of the Points of Light Foundation, chairs the California United Way's Alexis de Tocqueville Society and serves on the board of governors and executive committee of the Music Center of Los Angeles County.
 Arthur F. Ryan, president and chief operating officer, The Chase Manhattan Bank, N.A., is dinner chairman for the event, which provides support to The Aspen Institute's general operations.
 Past recipients of the institute's Public Service Award include Robert McNamara, retired president of the World Bank Group; U.S. Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun; British political leader Shirley Williams; and Marian Wright Edelman, president of the Children's Defense Fund. The Corporate Award has gone to Roberto C. Goizueta, chairman and CEO of The Coca-Cola Company; Willard Butcher, CEO, Chase Manhattan Corporation; James R. Houghton, chairman and CEO, Corning Glass Works; and Felix G. Rohatyn, senior partner, Lazard Freres and Company.
