Gathering his allies at Zermatt, climbing centre of the Alps, on August 1, Noel E. Odell, former Geology lecturer and member of the 1924 Mount Everest Expedition, will lead members of the Mountaineering Club in a two-weeks guideless hike over the Swiss mountains this summer.
Arthur B. Emmons, III, ocC., president of the Harvard climbers, is organizing the party. Charles S. Houston '35, former vice-president, Edward C. Streeter, Jr. '36, vice-president, and Donald W. Brown '33, former secretary, will be among others on the trip, whose complement has not been filled.
Ascents are to be made of the principal peaks in the region visited. These will include the Weisshorn, the Breithorn, and Monta Rosa, the second loftiest mountain of Europe, which is considered one of the best of Alpine climbs and said to offer some of the finest snow work in Switzerland.
