SAINT MARY'S EPISCOPAL PARISH-13 & PEARL

If there is anyone who hasn't been to church since the remodeling of the interior, it will be quite worth your while to pay a visit to the Chapel to look at and admire the beautiful painting entitled "The Christ of the Universe", painted especially for the Chapel by the prominent Eugene painter,Elizabeth Gough who is one of the parishioners. It depicts an entirely spiritual Christ. Standing within the cirlce of eternity bathed in light, with open hands, inviting all to "come to me". Gerry Fehly

NOTICE

All of you who have not PAID your 1973-1974 dues please do so before January 1974. This payment will save you the embarrassment of receiving a letter of "delinquency" and it will also save your Membe ship Chairman a lot of time since she will not have to send out scores of letters of delinquency. Thank you - Lois Schreiner.

THRU THE VIEWFINDER.

DOROTHY LELAND suffered major surgery and the whole club wishes you a speedy recovery, Dorothy. (Should have been in the November Obsidian).

FRANK REIMER spent some time in Sacred Heart Hospital, but we can say he is at home now doing quite well.

ANN CONNELL, we are glad to report, is back at home after being in the Eugene Hospital and Clinic with a bout of the pneumonia, and

MARY SANDS at the same hospital recovering from surgery. Expects to be back at her apartment in Lane Towers in time for Christmas.

Both Ann and Mary are new members and that is what you get from associating with such a lousy bunch as the Obsidians

MAXCINE WILLIAMS has an article "Alaskan Wildflowers for Pacific Northwest Gardens" accompanied with a number of pictures in the U of W "ARBORETUM BULLETIN" published quarterly by the U of W.

Maxcine has contributed a copy to the Obsidian Library. Thank you Maxcine.

KEITH & BESSIE BRUNIG off for the land South of the Border. They are flying as both of them have good wings.

SEE YOU YOU ALL AT THE CHRISTMAS AND THE NEW YEARS PARTIES. BE SURE TO BE THERE. O.K.
