PRINCESS DOINGS 17 Princesses met at Helen Weiser's home March 18. Those who purchases Sarah Coventry jewelry at the February meeting, were pleased to receive it, and out of the total receipts the treasury received $10.22. This large amount was made so by additional purchases of Hostess Elsie's son John. Princess Lightning reported on the Gold Bond project, completed registration, and the electric griddle was selected as first item to work for.

ATTENTION ALL OBSIDIANS When you turn in your Gold Bond Stamp books for premiums you want, please ask that the back covers be validated and returned. Or, if your book is one of the newer ones with no extra back cover just ask the clerk for a "Donation Certificate". Full books will be accepted gladly as they add 700 points. Back covers add 10 points. Turn in your full books or back covers to Nellie McWilliams or Thelma Watson.

A PIANO HAS BEEN ADDED Through the good graces of Dorothy Scherer the Obsidians are fortunate enough to have the loan of a piano from Mrs. W.H. Dale of Eugene. She does not need it at the present and is glad for us to use it at the Lodge. If she needs it again sometime, it will, of course be returned. Bob, Anita and Chkck Dark moved it on their trailer. Thanks so much.
