Falls Trip Popular
The May 25 trip to Silver Creek falls was a successful one, with 48 members and guests attending. After meeting at the south falls, the party, led by Myrtie Hamlin and Bertie McKee, went to the north falls to begin the trip. For three hours, the members strolled down the trail through beautiful woodlands, stopping often for pictures of unusually lovely scenery. About 2 p.m., they met at the picnic grounds, for one of those famous Obsidian potluck dinners.
A special feature following the dinner was the presentation of a mounted obsidian arrowhead to Blanche Osborn, who won the women’s class B-C championship at Mt. Hood in April.
Plan New Home
Doris and Ray Sims plan soon to move into their five-room home at 2181 Washington. A preview shows it to be a very attractive modern, one-story house, finished with white fluted shakes and a green shingle roof. Large corner windows catch views from the Coburg Hills to College Crest, with special emphasis on sunsets.
Tony Vogel has been employed by the Steam Plant of the Eugene Water Board since May 1.
Princesses Play Games
Eileen Baker and Blanche Osborn were hostesses for the April meeting of the Princesses at Blanche’s home. During the business meeting, Celeste Campbell reported on the recent rummage sale, stating that about $17 had been raised. Discussion was held on summer meetings.
Then girls played exciting games, during which they scrambled about the house cheeping like chickens and searching for candy Easter eggs. Following this was a more dignified and quiet game, in which the guests made up words from “Easter Sunday.” Margaret Norton was the winner.
On May 13, Nellie Moore and Jean Randolph entertained the group at Nellie’s home. Most of the evening was spent making plans to entertain non-Princess Obsidian women at a picnic dinner at Margaret Norton’s in June.
Myrtie Hamlin brought pictures taken on the trip which she and Dorr and Miner made to the east a few weeks ago, and showed them to the guests.
Dance Season Ends
The official Obsidian dancing season came to a close at the dance held the last Thursday in April, when the members voted to discontinue their meetings for the summer. But when Dorr and Myrtle Hamlin returned from their eastern trip and found the dances were over, Myrtie was so disappointed that the committee held a post season event, on May 22, especially for Dorr and Myrtie.
Special thanks must go to Oneita Behnke, who has cooperated generously with the club by allowing the use of a room for the weekly dances.
STRIPT TRIP SCHEDULE
They’re calling Norm Lee, local walks chairman, “a trip tease”—so many trips cancelled because of rain this spring!
Dance At Cabin
Only a small group was present, but everyone had fun at the overnight party at the cabins in April. After an evening of dancing the guests had a special treat—real Obsidian sandwiches with Dr. Gullion presiding at the table.
The next day, just so it wouldn’t be all play and no work, Darwin Yoran led a party on the Frizzel point trail. Those on the Sunday trip were Darwin Yoran, Walter Gilbert, Mr. and Mrs. McKee, Helen Smith, Thomas Graham, Chester Pietka, Lloyd Helikson, Bailey Castelloe, Dr. Gullion, Alvin Lynch and Glen Sims.

and Bill Parrish in making plans for the annual summer camp.
As several of the members have been called or expect to be called soon for military duty, the board decided to allow them paid-up membership during their absence, until they are active in the club again.
