On Three-Week Trip
Experiences to Lions
. Miss Rose Leibbrand, protograph
er, and Mrs. Lucy E. Rodgers, ac
countant for a vacation party that
included Miss Leta Humphreys and
Mrs. Agnes Wilcox, reported their
angles of a three-week trip through
the Canadian Rockies before the
Monday Lions luncheon. Most dis
concerting experience was a mos
quito raid at Bonners Ferry, Idaho,
going. Among most pleasurable in
cidents were an evening launch ride
on Lake Louise, and tea at the fa
mous lake hotel, though a night at
Timberline lodge on Mt. Hood on the
return was just about equal in nicety
to anything experienced on the en
Miss Leibbrand told of "shooting"
moose in the Canadian park, taking
shots at Hazelton farthest point
north touched and the present nor
thern end of Three Flags highway
in a heavy downpour, and again
photographing clear views in the
dense forest fire smoke encountered
on the Olympic peninsula. They
were completely equipped, photo
graphically, for shooting anything,
said Miss Leibbrand, and the rain
feat was accomplished by means of
periscope finder and protection of
an umbrella. The smoke pictures
were made with filter and infra-red
The ladies stopped at auto camps,
travelling in Miss Humphreys' car,
,and pooled expenses. The money
was put in Mrs. Rodger's hands as
cashier. Final tabulation after ar
rival home showed that 3518 miles
had been travelled at a total cost
for car operation of $138.60, or $34.67
each. The largest amount paid for
a cabin was at Banff, where luxur
ious accommodations were obtained
at $5 for one night.
Among points of interest stressed
was Fort St. James, original capital
of Canada, where the large rambling
hotel was equipped with fireplace
faced in ore, reduction of which
would yield $1000 in gold, it was
Most of the Canadian road thru
the mountains was washboardy ma
cadam. Generator trouble at inter
vals caused some grief, and a few
storms were gone through that made
prospects dark at times. So virgin
was most of the country visited that
Miss Leibbrand said she felt that
Roy Chapman Andrews had nothing
on them when it came to explor
ation. An oddity of the trip was the pur
chase of a small original Indian to
tem pole by Miss Humphreys at
Hazelton. Bargaining for it, as real
Indian totem poles were not easily
had, she purchased it for $2. She
then expressed it home. On her
return she found that it was still
lying at the border awaiting pay
ment of $1.60 duty.
Miss Humphreys is slated to ap
pear before the club next Monday
to exhibit pictures which had not
been printed when Miss Leibbrand
spoke last Monday.
Guests for the day included Mrs.
F. W. Turner and Mrs. D. M. Ward.
Frank C. Alfred was introduced as
a new member.

Folgate, a basketball referee of note,
