PAGE 3 THE OBSIDIAN FEBRUARY 1954
When you are discouraged because you are in the valley, remember that every valley reaches up to the hills.
Our good friend Dr. Gullion wrote recently, "Please note I have changed my address from Oroville, Cal., to 742 N. 1st St., San Jose, Cal. After spending two years raising peanuts, hams and melons in Gullion Park (as Elmer McBee named it) I'm helping establish a rest home here. When any of you bucks can't hike any longer, come down here and rest."
When last heard from, Glen and Florence Sims were pulling into New Orleans, La.
Hugh and Mabel Currin are spending a Winter vacation in Arizona, getting sunshine kilowatts.
A future Obsidian chief was born in January to Chief Dave and Princess Gale Burwell. Our congratulations to the happy parents.
When "Mr. Boals goes to Washington" - do you suppose he checks on Mamie's Spring Hats?
A Correction--Clarence and Dorothy Scherer and those two cute little Scherers have a new address -- but not the one reported in the last bulletin. Someone pressed the wrong button. Their address is 1476 Pleasant Street, and the phone is the same - 6-1345.
Sir Edmund Hillary, conqueror of Mt. Everest, will speak in San Francisco, March 10, and then in Seattle. There is a possibility he will appear in Eugene. Keep your fingers crossed - he has been invited by the U. of O.
Roxie Waldorf very beautifully and expertly plays in the first violin section of the new Eugene Civic Symphony orchestra. She also plays with the University of Oregon Symphony. Next concert February 24th at the music school auditorium. (Free Adv.)
A surprise birthday party for Myrtie Hamlin was well attended the other night. A bunch of Obsidians "barged in" on Myrtie's ironing to wish the Obsidian's sweetheart many happy returns of the day. Myrtie's age? Well the cake had 16 candles and they all went in one blow. The wish? Myrtie wished she could have 16 candles on her cake again next year.
Too much televisioning we guess, but Bailey Castelloe had Mary aghast the other day when he absent mindedly turned on the radio, waited a minute and seeing nothing exclaimed, "My gosh, Mary, I'm blind."
Do you members know the 1954 Obsidian "cut up". No it isn't bachelor President Carlson - it's Frances Newsom, club Librarian. She cuts out all club publicity and does a mighty efficient job of it, too.
That smoke you see rising from the Merle Bailey's home several hours each day is not fire. It's from Blanche's typewriter so busy pounding out conservation material re Three Sisters and Horsepasture area. What would the club do without the good help of Mrs. Smokey?
Obsidians are still talking about that wonderful potluck supper at which Dorothy Loftus entertained. "Outstanding" is the word for Loftus. Many thanks.
Always behave like -a duck - Keep calm and unruffled on the surface, But paddle like the devil underneath.
In writing to Representatives Miller and Harrison on Conservation issues, include a request that your letter be placed on record.
