Israel restored the Temple of
Jerusalem where, the Syrians had
set up a pagan altar and offered
sacrifices to the Greek idol Zeus
Altar Dedicated
The altar was once again sancti-
fied and dedicated, lamps were
kindled as a symbol of light over
darkness and spiritual freedom
over typranny, and a festival of
eight days was ordained.
There is an ancient legend that
all the oil in the Temple was pol-
luted by the Syrian worshibpers
and that only one cruse of pure oil
was found.
This oil, used -to light the lamps,
lasted by a miracle, for eight days
and so the holiday was celebrated
for eight days in memory of this
Lit at Sundown
The candles are lit each evening
at sundown in the synagogues and
homes. One candle is lit on the
first night and the number is in-
creased by one each succeeding

Among the many students keep-
ing their fingers crossed and pop-
ing for a white Christmas are the
ski enthusiasts, who have been
busily hunting up skis and equip-
ment for the coming season.
Ever since the 1953 Winter
Olympics at Lake Placid, N.Y., the
nation is becoming more ski con-
Inhis 30th year of watching
Americana ski, Pat Hardy of the
Boston Globe noted "I've never
looked up slopes in this country
and seen so many. good skiers as
I have this year."
Proper Outfitter
Prospective skiers should con-
sult a proper outfitter for the
necessary skis, binders, gloves,
poles and wax, a ski expert sug-
In planning what to take when
going to a ski resort, the first thing
on a skier's list should be a heavy
sports coat of camel's hair or
tweed, a sturdy greatcoat, some-
one's raccoon relic or just any
warm covering.
Important incidentals not to be
forgotten are boots or galoshes.
Knitted Shoes
Soft moccasins or Norwegian
knitted shoes will come in handy
when the skier is relaxing. Long
underwear and flannel pajames
will help prevent chills and colds.
A reminder to the skier who
travels by plane or train to his
destination, is to strap the skis,
tag and binders firmly togeth-
er. Otherwise he may arrive with
somebody else's skis, or his own
minus the binders.
Skiing is not only down hill rac-
ing and jumping. Beginners need
not be afraid of learning or of
possible accidents.
Adaptable Sport
Enthusiasts say that skiing is
actually one of the most adaptable
of all sports and lends itself to
any age or any terrain. In the
eyes of some, nothing can com-

pare with cross-country skiing
across soft winter landscape.
In Michigan, over 250,000 skiers
annually visit, the 34 ski develop-
ments. These range from Iron
Mountain, site of the world's tall-
est artificial jumping4 scaffold, to
the for-members-only Otsego Ski
Club. Here a member may have
his sleigh-borne copy of the morn-
ing paper delivered to his room
with his pre-breakfast coffee.

gan are Boyne Mountain, Caberfae

New England are located through-
out the northern region.
