 Two weddings to report last month. Bob Younger and Christa Calnan were married on February 10th. They arrived back in time to attend Phil Hall and Betty Hurley'​s wedding reception on February 24th. We wish the four of them all the best. Many of the guests came on to the Club dance after the reception, their eyes sparkling with good health and good spirits. Two weddings to report last month.

 "​...until a few years ago the same unbroken solitude has reigned every winter in these vast mountain spaces... But how different today! The whistling of engines pierces the stillness, trains puff breathlessly to and fro, the black coal-smoke drifts upward from the gaping tunnel'​s mouth into the blue sky above - and so-called civilisation creeps up and up into these highland wastes, with its big hotels and throngs of inevitable tourists. "​...until a few years ago the same unbroken solitude has reigned every winter in these vast mountain spaces...

-Of course it is all very "​convenient,"​ very "​comfortable."​ One can go to bed to-night in Oslo and get up early tomorrow to breakfast at Finse of Hallingskied,​ and take a Wa1k on Jokel or the Voss Glacier in the forenoon! All this convenience attracts many people to the mountains who would otherwise never go there. But if it did not bring so much else, of a kind which does not exalt us! All manner of luxury, food and drink and dress, and cards and folly! Nowadays, people come up into the mountains to stay at one of these big hotels, merely in order to kill time; they spend days and weeks in noisy gaiety, and then have to go back to town to rest."+Of course it is all very "​convenient,"​ very "​comfortable."​ One can go to bed to-night in Oslo and get up early tomorrow to breakfast at Finse of Hallingskied,​ and take a Walk on Jokel or the Voss Glacier in the forenoon!
