SCOOP

The summer camp for 1955 will be: Yes, you guessed it, TUOLUMNE MEADOWS AREA OF YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, as was announced at the New Year's Eve party. This will be the first two weeks in August. The committee is working on the cost and transportation methods to make the outing as low in cost as possible and the most enjoyable to all.

WINTER 0UTING

Well, well: Here it is January, the first of the year and middle of winter. You all know what that means, don't you? Yes, shiver-ee it's time to turn out and ski, That, my friends, means it is time to tell you of the winter outing being planned.

After browsing around, - - playing a question-and-answer game, we the committee have again come up with the most logical and popular outing place. Of course we mean Mazama Lodge on the slopes of Mt. Hood, We have asked for and are planning on the week--end of February 26-27.

Better start planning now because February will soon be here.
