Once again this year, skiing
enthusiasts at Michigan can break
the drudgery of their school workt
by participating in their favorite
winter pastime.
The Ullr Ski Club sees to this.
As the University's official skiing
organization, the Club offers both
recreational and competitive ski-
ing to anyone interested, from
beginner to expert.
The Club, which is still organiz-
ing this year's activities, meets
every Wednesday night in the'
Union. Two meetings have been
held thus far this year, with an
attendance of about 120 at each.
Pleased with Interest
Paul Marttila, President of the
Club, is quite pleased with the
interest shown by the students
toward skiing. With about 50
members in the fold so far, he still
hopes for larger turnouts at the
meetings and an increase in the
Marttila is especially anxious

for inexperienced skiers to join the
Club. "Almost half our skiers," he
commented. "have never skied be-
fore. All it takes to join the club
is a genuine interest in skiing."
The Club gives assistance to
beginners and more advancedj
skiers, both in lessons and equip-
ment selection. Another feature
of the Club is the showing of ski
movies which are both educational
and entertaining at the meetings.
The Club has its own ski slope,;

located north of Ann Arbor at activities for this season is the
Peach Mountain. Extensive plans hosting of the Michigan Inter-
