Rotarians See Slides Of Alaska Through slides shown by Mrs. Ed licCormack, Rotarians were taken on three trips to Alaska Monday evening. Tire pictures included those taken by Mr. and Mrs. McCormack on their motor trips to the 49th state in 1958, 1962 and 1964. Poor condition of the Alcan Highway prevented the McCor- macks from completing their initial trip. Slides illustrated changes in the highway made by 1962, when the McCormacks drove to Circle City, Alaska—the most northern point that can be reached by auto in North America and located beyound the Arctic Circle at Fort Yukon. The colorful array of slides included beautiful lakes, flowers and scenes of the Canadian Rockies. Highlights of their trip in 1964 included the damage resulting from the earthquake which struck Fairbanks and the surrounding area three months earlier. Slides depicted the extensive damage to homes, schools and other public structures. The McCormacks, during their extensive travels, have been in all states except Hawaii and Delaware.
