MEMBERSHIP ISSUE . . . MEMBERSHIP LIST

This list has been compiled by Membership Chairman Adeline Adams, and Secretary Judy Egge. It is difficult to publish a complete and accurate list, as names and addresses are continually changing. Therefore, the Membership Chairman always appreciates being notified of changes, as does the Secretary.

The total membership as represented here is 324. Four new members approved at last Board meeting are: Assoc-Donald A. Kohler, 730 D. St., Springfield; Junior-John E. King, Oakridge; Actives-Dale and Harry Carlson, Leaburg. The name of Juanita Austill Allen, 259 E, 13th, was
unintentionally omitted. With the passing of Cy Fulton and Vern Granger - the total now stands at 327.

SUMMER CAMP AND THE BEAR By Ray Sims

The advance group who set up the 1949 Obsidian Summer Camp, known as "Camp Keasling", on the beautiful shores of Spirit Lake, arrived by motor boat, at Donnybrook on Friday August 5th.

As they sat down to breakfast the next morning, very early, who should be sitting down at another table not far away, but Mr. Black Bear, ready to order hot cakes. Of course he was frightened away as the committee began to erect one of the most handy camps set up in the 21 years of Obsidian Summer camps. By nightfall the last committee car arrived, only to be aroused in the middle of the night by Mr. Bear again.

Most of the first weekers were in camp by Sunday evening and tales of the bear did not scare anyone from setting their tents where they desired. David, Catherine and Donald Faville as did Ned and Emily Graves, arrived on Monday from their California homes.

The first trip by trail past Jack Nelson's and on to an old mine at the North end of the lake on Monday, was taken by nearly everyone, and that evening the "gang" really appreciated Edna's fine cooking.

On Tuesday a scouting party led by Ray Sims, including Ernie Keasling, Mike Stahl, Don Temple, Jerry Honey, climbed to the summit of St. Helens by way of Forsyth Glacier. Leaving in the early morning hours by motorboat and driving to timberline,the party was back in mid-afternoon.

Swimming, boating, canoeing and trail trips, with visits to Jack Nelson's and Harry Truman's and an occasional dodging of raindrops were the pastimes for a day
