VAN DORN ANNOUNCES RESULTS OF BOARD MEETING

 VAN DORN ANNOUNCES RESULTS OF BOARD MEETING
 CLEVELAND, Aug. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Van Dorn Company (NYSE: VDC) today


announced that a Special Advisory Committee of the Board of Directors has been formed to review the company's business prospects and strategic plan, including evaluating its financial alternatives, and to consider appropriate responses to shareholder initiatives. The Committee is to report back to the Board of Directors with its findings and recommendations by Sept. 30, 1992.
 Appointed Committee members are John L. Dampeer and William M. Frazier, major shareholders of the company, James A. Karman, president and chief operating officer of RPM, Inc., William P. Madar, president and chief executive officer of Nordson Corporation, William G. Pryor, president and chief executive officer of Van Dorn, and Karl E. Ware, chairman and chief executive officer of Ware Industries, Inc.
 The Board concurred with the shareholder proposal to eliminate the applicability of the Ohio Control Share Acquisition Act and said it would recommend this action to shareholders at the 1993 Annual Meeting of Shareholders or at a Special Meeting if one is held prior to that time.
 The Board indicated it would not support the proposal to eliminate the classification of the Company's Board of Directors. This proposal failed at the 1991 and 1992 Annual Meetings of Shareholders, and the Board continues to support a classified Board of Directors.
 Finally, the Board announced that it has set Oct. 5, 1992, as the date for the Special Meeting of Shareholders, subject to verification of the validity of the request for the meeting under Ohio Law.
