Nov. 4-Bike Trip advertised as a novice trip. Marriner Orum leads.

Nov. 10-Mystery Trip.We don't know where we are going. We don't know when we start. We don't know where we leave from. And when we get back we wont know where we have been. Mary Bridgeman is the leader and she doesn't know either.

This winds up the trips on the schedule. From now until next spring trips will come direct from the Trips Committee.


How come? Dorothy Hayes has said that no one has called her about such a party so she thinks that there is not sufficient interest in one to have it. If you do not agree call her, 342-3108.Or there may be some of you who would relieve her of the involvement and gather a few togetker and make plans for one.

THE HALL OF THE MOUNTAIN KING, the story of the tragic climb of Mt McKinley where three men of Eugene lost their lives,one being our own Mark McLaughlin, is now in the Obsidian library.


Your Editor has to skip the country for awhile. He will return when the reason for his skipping is cleared up. This will mean he will not be here to put out the November issue of the Obsidian. If some person or persons will volunteer to get the issue out there will be a bulletin for November. The Editor says he will get as much done as possible ahead of time, and this will depend on other people getting stuff to him early.


Any Obsidian Chiefs who never received their Chief emblem, or who need a new one made---please contact any Princess--will try to give faster service from now on.


Will be at the home of Mary Gillespie, Princess Pine Squirrel, 277 No. Grand St at 7:30 p.m., on Monday, Oct. 15th.
