After an exhausting four-month siege in musty classrooms, many
University students will soon head for the whiter fields of northern
Michigan's winter sports areas.
Leaving final exams behind, several groups will spend the interval
between semesters skiing, skating, and sledding. Others prefer the
thrills afforded by hunting or ice fishing, but all are agreed that a
holiday in the great outdoors is the ideal cure for that mid-year
* * * *
A SPECIAL EXCURSION is being planned by some thirty mem-
bers of the Ullr Ski Club, who have been receiving preliminary instruc-
tion in their favorite sport. Numerous private parties are also looking
forward to vacations at snowy playgrounds.
Vast amounts of money and effort have been poured into the
development of regions in upper Michigan.
An exceptionally long season of abundant snow, plus modern
facilities and equipment have made these nearby areas million-dollar
enterprises and the mecca of winter sports fans from all over the
middle West.

LAST YEAR, Cadillac, with its famous sports center, Caberfae,
had the greatest attendance of any ski area in the mid-west. For ski-
ing enthusiasts, Caberfae boasts a 15-acre slalom bowl, seven powered
ski tows, and 14 prepared runs varying in length from 1,000 to 4,000
feet with slopes up to 45 degrees.
A separate beginners area with gentle slopes, free ski instruc-
tions, and a trained safety patrol are provided especially for the
benefit of the less proficient.
For toboggan fans, Caberfae features a half-mile slide. All metal
lined for safety, the slide permits average speeds of over 60 miles per
hour for the sweeping curve trip. An area-wide public address system
and a large heated shelter house are other advantages Caberfae

SNOWSNAKE MOUNTAIN, another sports area north of Clare,
is steeped in legend. In the days of Paul Bunyan, the region was
the favored spot of the fabulous snowsnake. Lumbermen called Bun-
yan to exterminate thsi deadly creature, but the great man needed
help. Dan McGrew, of Nome, Alaska, was called in, and together
the two worked out a successful scheme, using the Lady known as Lil
for bait.
Their efforts are now commemorated at the winter sports
center by ski runs which bear such names as the Snowsnake, the
Paul Bunyan, the Dan McGrew, the Lady Lil, and the Punch
Bowl and Washbasin slopes for beginners.

SKIING IS BELIEVING-Many groups of skiers like these will journey north between semesters
to forget finals and indulge in their favorite sport. Upper Michigan's numerous winter resorts play
host every season to beginners and experts alik e who seek a vacation from the classroom in the
great outdoors.
Stradivaritis Artists To Give Performance Here

TOBOGGAN THRILLS-The toboggan slide pictured is typical of those provided by most of
northern Michigan's winter sports areas. Tobogganing is one of the featured activities, in addi-
tion to skiing, skating, hunting, and ice fishing. The thrills it offers will be enjoyed by many stu-
dents who will travel north this season.

Four noted artists and as many
Stradivarius viols make up the
Paganini Quartet, which will be
heard here at 8:30 p.m., Friday

day at Rackham Auditorium.
The artists are Henri Temianka,
first violin; Gustave Rosseels, sec-
ond violin; Robert Courte, viola,
and Robert Mass, 'cello.
The Paginini Quartet takes its
name from the four historic in-

struments used by its members.
These are the four viols made by
Stradivarius and owned by Paga-
Dispersed after Paganini's death,
the four instruments were reas-
sembled a century later and es-
pecially acquired for the Paganini
The members of the Quartet
have had distinguished solo and
chamber music careers.

Old friends of long standing,
they were reunited after the war
and the Quartet was launched in
its world debut at the University
of California in Berkeley in 1946.
Since then, high acclaim has
followed the Quartet on its exten-
sive tours of the United States and
Tickets for the concerts may be
purchased at the University Musi-
cal Society offices, Burton Tower.
