Artificial ski courses are now the vogue and naturg snow is being utilized in more and more places. The West is the choice location  for ski slopes but there is good skiing in New Eng- land and the East also. Ski equipment has greatly improved i n recent years. Thus, if you're thinking of taking up the sport many ex- perts believe exercises more of your body than any other sport except swim- ming, there is ample oppor- tumity in the United States today. S ki s are important, and shoes are almost equally important. This should be tall enough to reach the palm of your hand when it is raised over your head com- fortably. They should flat- ten out from tip to rear when you stand on them, so. that you don't have daylight beneath any part of them when you look under them at floor level. bricks should come up to your armpit, when the points are on a hard floor. Shoes should be given close attention, for they are as important as skis them- selves. In the last few years snap-on shoes have reached the market and they are easier to put on than the lace-up shoes. How ever, if you do not get a good Et, or do not get food snap-on shoes, it is better to stick to older types. Sticks should be carefully selected but this is an easy task. In general, the length of each pole, when stood on the floor next to the buyer, should extend up to the top 3f, or an inch above, the armpit. When they are in- serted into-snow, the length gill be jsut under the arm- 9it. The best jackets are those ghich have a pull-up head :ape attached to the back )f the jacket itself and which :an be used to cover the lead and ears in especially :old weather or when skiing 'ast. G o o d equipment and pro- =,r-fitting clothes are per- haps more important in skiing than in any other sport.

Times Staff Photo Gimme' That Ball Horse Branch gave Dundee something to think about in the final quarter of the consolation game... Several times in the remaining minutes of the game it appear- ed that they would retain the lead, but Dundee came back in the last few seconds of play and held onto the lead. Dundee won the game by a slim two point lead. The fans were cheering wildly as the high score fluctuated back and forth between the two teams. ********************* Dundee Over Horse Branch Beaver Dam Smashes Hartford 37-22 In Tilt The gymnasium of the Bea- ver Dam Grade School was all astir with players, cheer- leaders, proud parents, anx- ious coaches and scores of spectators looking for some excitement Friday night. The grade school tourna- ment sponsored by the Par- ents-Teachers Association, featured the Beaver Dam, Dundee, Horse Branch and Hartford Graded Schools. The littler varsity players provided many thrills for the spectators, as they struggled to gain the lead for their respective teams. The con-! solution game played bet- ween Horse Branch and Dun- dee proved to be the real thriller of the evening. The teams were evenly matched and the scoring ran rela- tively even right up to the last quarter. In the final period of play, each team turned on the pressure, and the question as to whom would be the winner, was a mystery right up to the final whistle. First one and then the other team would be on top in the fin- al 60 seconds of the garm,. In the remaining 45 sec- onds, after having scor- ed a field goal, Dundee managed to tie up the ball un:il the buzzer sounded, thus winning by a slim 42 to 41. The championship game of the evening between Beaver Dam and Hartford proved ,the lead throughout the game, during the fourth quarter, Hartford rallied to accoun for 15 points. Beaver Dam came up the winner in the tilt by a comfortable mr- gin of 37-22. The real exciting event of the evening was the presen- tation of the trophies to the winners. Coach Ralph Un- derhill, of the Ohio County Eagles, presented three tro- phies, the Championship to Beaver Dam, Runner-up to Hartford, and the Consola- tion Trophy to Dundee. Much enthusiasm for thel game and also a good deal of school spirit was evi- dent at the game as the pretty cheerleaders from the four schools led the boos- ters in cheer after cheer for the players. One would suspicion tha Coach Ralph Underhill was at the game, not only to' award the trophies but to scout around for future play- ers for the Eagles as in the near future many of these grade school varsity play- ers will be entering Ohio County High. The average American girl needs no defense -- she can take care of herself.
