Scheduled to begin at 2:00 P.M. February 18, at the Willamette ski, area, dedication services for the Gene McMurphey ski patrol shelter will be opened by the Willamette ski patrol. Dolph Jones, radio announcer and honorary member of the patrol, will preside as master of ceremonies.

Filling the speakers' chairs, will be: Van Purdy, local ski instructor; Bryan Ryan, designer of the building; Tony Vogel, on the purpose; and pinch-hitting for building chairman, Bob Pfeiffer, now in the army, will be his father, Carl Pfeiffer. A toboggan demonstration will be presented by two teams including Miss Virginia Bloom and Mrs. Allen Lindley for the women and Jack Meissner and Chuck Honey for the men.

Gene McMurphey, a well known Obsidian, ski patrolman, certified ski instructor, and member of the mountain troops, lost his life in the fall of 1948. Chairmen of the dedication plans are Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Proudfoot, close friends of the McMurphey family.

Ground for the shelter was broken on Labor Day, 1949, and volunteers donated numberless weekends constructing it, under the supervision of Pfeiffer and Springfield contractor, Gale Roberts. All materials were donated by nearby firms.
