$200.00 was voted to the conservation fund. This after a good deal of discussion by all members of the Board. The entire Board felt that this was the least we could do and in as much as the Sierra Club will match any funds contributed to conservation work and Mike has been offered much more money than he is realizing from his work with the Northwest conservation. And also Mike is spending the most that we give on conservation work.
The bus trip to Oregon Caves took in $175.50 and the bus charge was $164.90 so we came ahead on this trip.
Among the bills allowed was one to the State as a charge made for being incorporated.
Entertainment: Ray Cavagnaro will work with the Outing Committee when they put on their Summer Camp Rally May 23rd. Ray also commented on the fact that there were so few attended the Hootenanny and wondered if it was because there was no pot-luck or because of the kind of entertainment. Ray was much concerned about this, but was told not to worry as there've already been two criticisms made about the porch.
Climbing: Chairman Hasek discussed the need for two more ropes. Ropes need to be replaced every year, but the fact that new ropes are bought every year only to have the new ropes disappear on climbs and not be returned was discussed at length and ways to make those who are responsible for them get them back to the Lodge.
Finance Committee: The Subject of an endowment policy that appeared in the last issue of the Bulletin brot up some discussion. It was pointed out to the Board that one attorney had been contacted on the subject and he informed us that an endowment could not be left to the Club until the Club had set up an endowment policy to leave anything to. It was also pointed out to the Board that the Mazamas had sat up such a fund just three or four years ago and that they have in this fund already a sum of $33,000. The Finance Committee was told to go ahead and call a meeting and see what could be done. Douglas Spencer could, it was said, give us invaluable advice on this. There is also a question as to how long an endowment fund could be set up for on account of some law enacted in 1521 in England that our law on this subject is tied to.
Leaving in one's will some amount to an endowment fund for the Club to carry on work, especially as important as conservation and the care of areas already set aside for the enjoyment of all the people would work no hardship on anyone. A person would have the use of any moneys they intended to leave to the Club as long as they lived and would only leave in their wil such money as they might feel like after they had passed on.
TOTE-GOATS AND HONDAS came up for a lot of discussion. We are told that officials in the Park and Forest Service frown upon the use of such because of the damage to trails but Forest Service Handbook 5610.43-353 to Forest employees asks them to encourage them.
ENGAGED: Miss Nina Harmon and Douglas Edwards have announced their wedding day. It will be the sixth of June.
MERLE AND BLANCHE BAILEY have bought themselves a new Buick. Some people just can't save any money. Well, happy traveling to you all. Now you have no excuse for not coming down, or up, to see us. Two ways to get here. Down south or up the river.
HELEN WEISER is home safe and sound after her world tour. Most of her tour was by boat. And as used to water as Oregonians are, that is probably the best way to go.
DONN CHASE recently was elected vice president of Ore. State Assn. of Plumbing and Heating and Cooling Contractors.
