Bet-Sefer L'Madrichim 1968

From Chaim Fischgrund's archives:




I am fairly sure this is at the 1968 Bet Sefer L'Madrichim.

Chaim Fischgrund is at the right on the platform, Yisrael Medad (Winkelman) next to him.  I think Efraim (Frank) Dimant is next.  Who is the Betari to the rear?

Is the first chanich Joel Rich?

Any other identifications?
