OUTING CLUB The Outing Club is one of the more active of the outdoor clubs on campus, and is a member of the In­ tercollegiate Outing Club Association (IOCA). The club is known for its foot and snowshoe hikes and its camping, skiing, and canoeing trips. The first hike that was organized in the fall was on registration day to introduce the new freshmen to St. Regis mountain and the surrounding area. Then after everyone got settled, regular meetings were held to plan the year's program. The Paul Smith's Outing Club is ideally located in the Adirondack park for its many year round activi­ ties. It is near a thain of lakes and some of the high peaks of the state which offer many opportunities to be close to nature. The trips that were taken on foot were up St. Regis, Mt. Marcy, Cascade, Porter, Blueberry, and McKenzie mountains. There also have been two canoe trips. One was a day's paddling around the lakes in the St. Regis chain, and the other was an overnight trip at Fish ('reek Pond. St. Regis, Marcy, Ampersand, Algonquin, Whiteface, Loon Lake, Debar, and Iroquois mountains have seen members and other adventuresome students on showshoe hikes. Trail clearing is another activity of the club. A new trail part way up McKenzie Moun­ tain was put in and a snowshoe trail for Adirondack Loj was cleared by the club. Slides of a trip to Mt. Ranier were shown by Mr. Siau at one of the meetings and some of the members also have shown some of their pictures.
