The OBSIDIAN

VOL. XVI NOVEMBER 1956 - OBSIDIANS INC.- P.O. BOX 322 - EUGENE, OREGON NO. 8

HENRY CARLSON ELECTED PRESIDENT

The Annual Meeting of the Obsidians was held on October 9, 1956, in Springfield, at which time the past year's business of the club was presented. Three Board Members retired, Bailey Castelloe, Lloyd Plaisted, and Henry Carlson. Those elected to the Board were Karl Onthank, Jim Jeppesen, and Henry Carlson, for three year terms.

Selection of the President was withheld until all Board Members could be present. The next Board meeting set for this was held October 11, 1956, at Helen Hughes' home.

At this meeting Henry Carlson was elected President for the next year. The Vice-President will be Ray Harris. Other officers were re-elected.

Organization completed, business was underway. Walt Banks, a member of the Board, and official editor of the Bulletin, sent in a letter of resignation for these offices since he has moved to Salem. It was regretfully accepted. George Hermach, runner-up at the Annual Meeting, was nominated to fill Walt's unexpired term.

Due to the urgency of issues in Conservation it was decided to separate the Scientific and Conservation Committee into two separate committees. This, it is felt, will be an important move.

The Board also created a Youth Activities Committee on a trial basis for the coming year, to encourage young families within the club and without, to bring or send their children on trips, etc., designed just for them.

Committee Chairmen are as follows:

Entertainment - - - - -Natalie Beckett
Trips - - - - - - - - - George Hermach

Climbing - - - - - - - - - Tom Taylor

Building- - - - - - - - - Gene Sebring
