Trips For Fall
Come One, Come All

Many fine trips are in store for us during the colorful season of autumn. Even now the leaves are starting to turn in the higher mountains. Let's be sure to take advantage of every one of these trips which we can, as soon the rains will be upon us. Buy a good supply of color film and let's go to:

Oct. 2 Fingerboard Prairie and Deer Butte led by Henry Carlson.

Oct. 9 Belknap Crater trip with Helen Hughes in the lead.

Oct. 16 Keith Brunig will show us the way to Gold Point.

Oct. 23 Black Crater with Mac McWilliams to guide us there.

Oct. 30 The Temples will take us on an interesting trip in the Willamette area.

Invite your non-Obsidian friends and let's go!

F.W.O.C. CONVENTION
Karl Onthank, President
Frances Newsom, Secretary

Obsidians are honored to hear that Karl Onthank was named President of the Federation of Western Outdoor Clubs at their 24th annual convention held Labor Day week end at Idyllwild, Cal. Equally honored was Frances Newsom, elected secretary. Irma O. Brown of the Roamer Hiking Club succeeds outgoing treasurer Ray Sims.

Two hundred thirty six people, the second largest attendance in the history of the FWOC, gathered at Hidden Lodge in an effort to strengthen the spirit of friendly cooperation between the member clubs and to heighten members' love for the out-of-doors, along with their conservation mission.

Among the resolutions adopted were those - 1. Favoring retention of the entire Three Sisters Wilderness Area.

2. Reaffirming policy as opposed to development of Upper McKenzie and Beaver Marsh
