There, you have. it, with the exception of entertainment. Your President, Helen S ith, will attempt to find some one to fill this position.

Your Editor believes this is only the third time that we have had a female for President. The first was Florence Sims Next was Margaret Markley. Helen is one of our most active members in hiking and climbing.She became a member in 1936 and the trails and mountains she has not yet been over, or on have not been built.

CHEMEKETANS of Salem have elected a woman to be President for the next year. Marge Beaman has this honor. Marge is also an Obsidian Princess,Princess Golden Slippers.


Present at Princess Initiation were our royal Presidents; from the Chemeketans Marge Beaman, Obsidian Past-President, Margaret Markley and 1974 Obsidian President, Helen Smith.

Princess Starlight, Marge Brittain was duly initiated at the annual Princess Fiesta.

YE EDITOR is visiting friends and relatives in Washington (state of). If you notice changes and errors in the bulletin; it's all Mrs. Editor's fault. Bob will return in time to correct everything in the next issue.
