MARGARET MARKLEY is the latest contributer to the Memorial Rockwall.


Last spring the Board had printed forms to be given to leaders of trips to be filled in with information as to needs of improvments on trail and sent to the Forest Service Involved. This has been received by the Forest Service with open arms. Wes Prouty sent in one to the Sweet Home Ranger Station about logs on trail 3386 and this is their reply.

"Dear Mr. Prouty:

Just received your trails report on 3386. This kind of report is very much appreciated and can allow us to reclaim some old trails. As a matter of fact, we have reclaimed more than 10 miles over the last 3 years.

I would like to offer a couple of suggestions. It would be helpful if you folks could give some indication of the extent of the work needed, 2 logs or 50 logs, big logs or little logs, 10 feet or ½ mile of tread improvement. Also, it would be helpful to get the report in soon after it is made.

Don't get me wrong.I think it is great that you are interested enough to take the time to pass helpful information."

Thanks, Richard D. Harlan.

FLASH! Hot off the wire- Rose Marie Moffitt will be the Vice-President of the Princesses for the coming year.

CLARENCE LANDES and his band of conscripts have completed all the rock work having rip-rapped the dirt bank at the north end of the Lodge and the whole place cleaned up - Looks nice.


The last one of the year and all filled up the last report we had. And we will have weather - you can bet on that.
