Vol. XXII April 1962 No. 6


The Greyhound bus loaded with 38 Obsidians and friends bound for Seattle's World Fair will leave 19th & Patterson streets at 6 P.M. Friday, May 18, 1962. The first stop will be at the T & R restaurant opposite Albany for dinner. Then on the way to Auburn, Wn. Other stops may be made, however Auburn should be reached by midnight.

After "a night's sleep" we will have breakfast in Auburn. As the bus will not be allowed in the fairgrounds, we will get off at the depot of the Monorail (Westlake Mall) in the heart of the city and ride to the fairgrounds.

The Fair opens at 10 A.M. so the day of Saturday will be spent there. There are too many things to do and see than time will allow, however, an appointed hour will be made to meet our Greyhound for a return trip to Auburn.

Sunday again will be spent at the Fair and I will mention two reasons why - in 1950 we left our camp in the Tetons and "spent" the day in Yellowstone Park - most people take 3 days. Again in 1959 I spent a day at the Centennial in Portland - many things were missed.

Yes, I am sure we can spend two days at this beautiful "fair of tomorrow".

Return to Eugene Sunday night, May 20.

Gene Renard and family are going to the Land of leis and Alohas where they will be known as Haole Malahini's. We will all miss you, Gene, even those who have never met you, because of your active interest in the betterment of the Obsidian's and of the work and time that you have contributed to the planning and leading of trips and towards our club-house.

Don't get confused in directions over there. The natives don't know east from south themselves, but have just two directions.

Mauka (towards the mountains) and Makai (towards the sea). So that is all there is to it, Gene. Aloha and Mahalo Nui for all you have done for us. Aloha.
