The tables were gracefully set off with unusually charming bouquets of summer flowers. Three very entertaining movies obtained by D. Towlerton were enjoyed: Destination earth, boating on the Grand Canyon of the Colorado, and Family Afoot in the Yukon. A beautiful Chrysanthemum plant was presented to Helen Weiser, who warmly expressed her appreciation to all Obsidian for making this memorial and to those who contributed toward its purchase.

DISAPPEARED

From the top right hand drawer of the desk in the "Medill" room a pair of shears These are top quality shears and do not belong to the Lodge, but are used there in connection with the mineographing work. They belong to one of the members of the Publications Committee and their return would be deeply appreciated. They were probably used sometime in decorating down stairs and inadvertently got put in some ones basket or hand bag and taken home.
