Vol. I No. 2 SNOW TRAIN EDITION Jan. 25, 1937

SNOW TRAIN by Norwald Nelson

The "Snow train special" sponsored by the Obsidian Ski Club of Eugene, will leave the S.P. Depot at 7 A.M. Sunday, Jan. 31st, bound for Crescent Lake, in the heart of the Cascades for a day of frolicking in the snow.

Tickets for the round trip are $2.00, half fare for children under 12. As there are no eating facilities of any kind at the lake, everyone must either bring his own lunch, or eat on the diner, which will serve a full course dinner for 75¢. Sandwiches at 10¢ each, coffee, milk, etc. 5¢, will be on sale in all the coaches. The train will be parked on a siding, and kept heated all day.

The trip is open to all lovers of the out of doors, and tickets are on sale at Babbs, Hendershotts, Montgomery Wards, Washburne's and the Educational Activities office on the Campus, from Ralph Schomp. Persons contemplating taking the trip are urged


Have you ever wished you could ski and ski and then ski some mare? Well, that is what we are going to do,

The Obsidian Club is going to have a winter outing, Feb. 20th to 25th incl. (full moon). We have a summer outing every year and what a vacation that is. Nothing could be finer, so the outing committee has planned a weeks outing in the Bohemia Mountains. Headquarters will be at the boarding house of the Champion Mine. It would be hard to find a more ideal site so near home, where the mile high mountains assure us of nice dry snow and slopes to suit anyone.

A cook has been engaged and food and other supplies, including a quart of high powered liniment to take care of sore muscles and sprains, were taken in and stored before snow fell.

This year, on account of limited quarters, only about 25 can be accommodated.
