SCHEER RETURNING TO CONSULTING PRACTICE FOLLOWING LTV RETIREMENT

 WASHINGTON, D.C., June 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Following a planned retirement from the LTV Corporation (NYSE: QLTV) on June 30, veteran public relations executive Julian Scheer will return to the Washington, D.C., communications consulting firm of Murray, Scheer, Tapia and Montgomery where he was a partner in the early 1970s.
 Scheer joined the LTV Corporation in 1976 as senior vice president- corporate affairs and a member of LTV's management committee. He has had overall responsibility for government relations, public relations, advertising and shareholder and employee communications. He planned his retirement to coincide with LTV's emergence from Chapter 11 reorganization.
 From 1962 to 1971, Scheer served as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's assistant administrator in charge of public affairs, with responsibility for the policy, concept and operation of the agency's public affairs program. For his work on the Gemini, Mercury and Apollo programs, including the lunar landing, he received NASA's highest award, the Distinguished Service Medal.
 Before joining NASA, Scheer spent 10 years with The Charlotte News where he covered state and national politics and wrote a daily human interest column. Earlier in his career, he was assistant director of sports information for The University of North Carolina from 1949 to 1953, and also operated a syndicated news feature service.
 Scheer has contributed to numerous national publications, written for film, radio and television, and published five books, including three for adults and two for children. His best-selling Rain Makes Applesauce, published in 1965, was runner-up for the Caldecott Award as the outstanding juvenile book of the year.
 Scheer is a member of NASA's Advisory Council and a former director of the National Air and Space Museum. He is also a member of the Board of Visitors of the School of Journalism and Mass Communications of The University of North Carolina, and in 1991 was named to the North Carolina Public Relations Hall of Fame.
 A native of Richmond, Va., Scheer was graduated from The University of North Carolina after service in World War II. He is married to the former Suzanne Huggan and has four children. He lives near Catlett, Va., where he raises beef cattle.
