MIKE STAHL New President

I WAS THINKING . . . . .

You know, I thought the President of the Obsidians could be just sort of a figurehead, so to speak. Well, he is, in a way. There seems to be quite a bit of figuring to do, giving a bit of exercise to the head.

This Committee business, for example.... I know there are plenty of people in the Club who would make fine Committee members, and who are willing, even eager to take part. But when the board tries to get Committee Chairmen and the Chairmen try to get Committees, everybody is just too busy.

Now this isn't your fault, folks. You've probably already mentioned that you'd like to do something. But we keep forgetting at board meetings who you are and what job you would like. The old figurehead isn't working.

So please, don't be bashful! If you want to serve on a Committee, just phone the Chairman (there's a list of 'em somewhere in this Bulletin) and ask for a job. If the Committee is already made up,there is always a need for alternates, or perhaps you can just work with the Committee -- no glory maybe, but just as much fun!

It would be fine, I think, if every member had some part in the planning of the Club's activities -- helped make the wheels go 'round. Then maybe your President could be that easy--going figurehead I was dreaming about.
