During the Friday night get-together and slide show rain began to fall, and there was almost continuous light to moderate rain for the rest of the period, for a total of two inches or so. At the Annual Meeting, held Saturday afternoon, the following officers were elected: Dr. Stanley Longfellow, Kearney, president; Mr. C. Fred Zeillemaker, Crescent Lake NWR, vice-president; Mrs. Emma Johnson, Omaha, secretary; Mr. Wm. W. Lemburg, Cairo, treasurer; Dr. Neva Pruess, Lincoln, librarian; and Dr. KG.

At the banquet Prof. Stan Dart, Kearney State College, spoke on "The Natural History of the Grand Canyon" and showed slides to illustrate his points.
