May seem like rushing the seasons to talk about the summer outing, when we are just now making preparations for the Winter Outing; but the old year rolls around very fast, and with the thought that we sometimes have to plan our vacations sufficiently far enough ahead, to insure a definite date, we are encouraged to commence talking about the summer outing.
The summer outing this year is to be held in the Beautiful Wallowa mountains, two weeks in Oregon’s most scenic mountain range, often referred to as the Alps of the Northwest. The base camp will be centrally located in a region that will offer a diversity of recreation. Climbing will be of paramount interest, with the opportunity of making ascents of several of Oregon’s highest peaks, all over the ten thousand foot mark. Climbing is particularly good in that region, as the peaks are hard rock mountains, and the climbs are all of varying degrees of difficulty, making the highest of the peaks possible for mountaineers of limited experience.
The Wallowa Range is noted for the beautiful high mountain lakes that nestle in the valley floor. They offer the sport of good fishing, and swimming in pure crystal clear water. There will be many places of interest to visit aside from the high summits, so that the low-land explorers will be just as busy as the high top scalers.
Knowing that a large share of the enjoyment of these outings, aside from the spiritual, hit very close to the condition and state of well-being of the stomach, careful attention will be given to this phase of the outing. The best possible cook will be engaged, and plenty of good, appetizing, well-prepared food will be served. Higher altitudes, and plenty of outdoor exercise developes healthy appetites. The committee in charge, plan to make this part of the outing equally as enjoyable, as the purely recreational program.
The date of the 1939 summer outing will be August 5th to August 19th. More complete details concerning the outing will be released in regular prospectus form at a later date. Club members, members of clubs affiliated with the Western Federation of Outdoor Clubs, and any non-members of above mentioned clubs, that would like to spend their vacation in this manner, are cordially urged to attend the 1939 Annual Summer Outing of the Obsidian Club, in the Wallowa Mountains.

Princesses Get Together
The Princesses, December 13, journeyed out to Princess Blue Waters’ new home, north of Eugene. Some of the girls could hardly be coaxed into the house, they were having so much fun with the trick door chimes.
Blue Waters’ “skookum new wigwam,” from the special cabinet for skis in the basement, to the fireplaces (two of ’em!) came in for plenty of admiring attention.
Mildred Soukup, a guest of the evening, played Santa Claus as gifts were exchanged as the program feature of the evening.
The January meeting was held at the home of Princess Sahalie with Princess White Dove assisting. The girls spent the evening playing Chinese checkers.
The February meeting is to be held on St. Valentine’s day, with Princess Many Ponies.
Doc : The thing for you to do is to stop thinking about yourself—to bury yourself in your work.
The Goof: Gosh! And me a concrete mixer.
