John Weske who is a memeber of the Wilderness Society
showed us gorgious moving pictures of the Sierra Mts. We
travelled through wild flower "gardens", the rain forrests,
along glaciers, and by the oceanside. We heard the plea to help preserve
the natural beauty of our country for posterity. We saw bad
results of cutting timber, and mining where the ore had run out
leaving sores on the land. Our raw materials are waning. The
photography was beautifully done and left us breathless with
a taste of the beauty available when nature can "have her way".
We are grateful to John for bringing this treat to us.

We adjourned to meet in September at Gracelyn with the
Thomases (Francis and Grace). The reader will be Elizabeth
