Vol. 30 APRIL 1970 No. 7

If you are too weak to journey
Up the mountain steep and high,
You can stand within the valley
While the multitude go by.
You can chant in happy measure,
As they slowly pass along;
Though they may forget the singer,
They will not forget the song.

- Ellen Gates

1970 Climbing School starts May 6.

All you folks who want to learn how to stay on the cliffs when they are crumbling all about you, get in touch with Ben Ross, 343-5362.

You won't regret it.

Our club has a good record of hanging onto the cliffs. Don't let us down.

April 25 Potluck 6:30 P.M.

Dr. Krakauer will bring you into some of the most remote country on the North American continent. You will see pictures of primitive Indian tribes of the southern Mexico wilderness - an area seldom seen by white people. You will hear of how they were met by each tribe with open arms, who knew they were coming by communications known only to them.

It should be a stirring evening - a memorable account of an adventure few people have had the fortune to undertake.

Oh, yes - you must make an Investment-a few hours of your time is all. You have the fortune of being an Obsidian to see this marvelous adventure without cost.

Grande Ronde River Boat Trip May 30-Jun 7

A bit early to advertise? Not at all! Make your plans ahead for this dandy excursion. When you come back, you will have a better idea why Bob Medill is pushing the Scenic Rivers Initiative Petition - an action to Save Our Beautiful Rivers for US!

Did You Know that over twenty Obsidians helped with the publication of the Bulletin last month? That's dedication.
