Obsidians To Have New Year’s Party

To Be Held At River Road Club House This Year

Gas rationing, barricaded snow playgrounds and a holiday that does not come on a week-end have made us cancel our annual New Year trek to the McKenzie country; but it cannot prevent our having a New Year party.

The party will be held from 7:00 p.m. till midnight on New Year’s Eve at the River Road club house. It will start with a big pot-luck dinner with TURKEY and hot drinks supplied by the committee, and wind up with celebrating the passing of the Old year and the coming of the New. In between, will be a lot of entertainment and fun and the annual Liars’ contest.

Glen Snyder and his accordion will play for the dancing. Bring hot dishes and food other than meats, and your sugar. Turkey, music and incidentals for the party will be about 75c each.

Sign up by Monday, December 28 at Hendershotts so that you will get some turkey and transportation, if needed, or if you have room for others, bring a friend.

This party is put on as usual by the Local Walks and Entertainment committees.

Come on Obsidians let’s see if we can’t persuade 1943 to bring back all our boys and girls, and the good times 1942 has taken from us.

Lt. Gerald Johnson Tells Of Alaska

Nov. 4. Showing movies he had taken in Alaska, Lt. Johnson told of his experiences with the army air corps based on the Alaskan Penninsula. Due to Gerald there are two less Jap Zeros flying today.

Following this, colored movies were shown by Sterling Behnke; and Glenn Sims showed colored movies of the 1942 Summer Camp.

A most interesting evening closed with a Dutch treat in the Del Rey private dining room.

Princess Meeting

A Princess meeting was held at the home of Adeline Adams the evening of December 17, with Nellie Moore as assistant hostess.

Names were drawn for a White Elephant gift exchange at the annual Christmas meeting and party this year to be at Margaret Norton’s, 2320 Charnelton, December 14.

A special feature of the evening was Adeline’s still pictures taken on her Alaska trip in 1941 and other interesting places.

Present were Helen K., Myrtie H., Olga M., Helen S., Florence S., Thelma W., and Bertha D.

Chester Pietka Visits

Those attending the dancing group on November 5 were both “surprised and pleased” to have Chester come in for a short visit.

Obsidans: Notice! !

We are having a shadow sale and potluck dinner Thursday evening December 10 at 7:00 at the Y.M.C.A. on the campus. Our ladies cast quite a variety of shadows, so you men take your choice and place your own valuation, but remember, no eats unless there is a shadow in your pocket.

Mr. Elliott of the Forest Service will entertain us with pictures, and dancing will finish the evening.—Doran McKee.

Mazama Annual Banquet
