For Sports
Winter has the dubious distinc-
tion of being the leading seasonY
for gripes and complaints about
the ever popular subject of weath-
er.
Days are short, walking andt
driving are often treacherous and
the wind is sharp and biting. For
some it is a convenient time to
count the days until spring and
vow fervently to "go south next
year and stay there."
But for others all is not lost.
The snow covering the ground of-
fers vast opportunities for fun and
frolic. Racing down snow covered
slopes is exhilarating to mind and
body. The dangers add a challenge
to the skills of the skier. Tobog-
ganing and ice skating provide
hours of fun for the enterprising
sportsman.
The snow, a frustrating enemy
if one is in a hurry, is also a pic-
turesque thing of beauty. Even
those who long for summer appre-
ciate the impressive views of land-
scapes and buildings covered with
a clean, fresh blanket of snow.
Snow covered porch rails, brok-
en down fences and the barren
lmibs of trees become the subjects
for camera lovers and the old,
fondly recalling happy winter days
of their youth.
For the young afid the young at
heart, it is a time for the creation
of all sorts of things in snow. The
children build the ever-popular
snowman with the pipe in his
mouth and of course the "fort" for
an exciting snow-ball fight.
College students hold winter
carnivals and build everything
from ships to houses, all from
snow. Contests and parties are
held in the atmosphere of the
stimulating vigor of winter.
For the winter-lover it is a time
of crisp, cold air and rigorous out-
door ilfe. For one and all it is a
time of beauty as only nature can
create beauty.

Christmas morning lies in seeing
it through the eyes of children.
It's a day that really belongs
to them.
Children will come to appreci-
ate Christmas more if they are
permitted to take part in prepar-
ations for the annual festivities. .
One easy way of getting chil-
dren to participate is to let them
help decorate the tree or wrap
presents.
The "small fry" like to feel that
they have a definite part in
Christmas preparations.

CREATIVE GENIUS-Snow and those "long winter nights" seem to bring out the latent artistry in a number of people. This sinking
ship on a sea of ice was sculptured several years ago by students of Middlebury College in Vermont for their annual winter carnival. But
whether or not the final product is quite as elaborate as this, it's always fun to build something from snow while getting cold toes and
catching a cold.

UP AND AWAY-Long periods of practice go into the background of a perfectly executed jump. One
of the most appealing aspects of skiing, the jump must be made with both precise timing and balance.

WINTER WARMTH-Irregardless of the beauty of winter snow,
there are many who feel that the best way to look at the weather
is through a window.

Dangers of Christmas Trees
Explained By Safety Council

Usually busy absorbing the spirit
of the season, people rarely look
upon a brightly decorated Christ-
mas tree as an instrument of de-
struction.
The National Safety Council has
warned, however, that the tree
could very easily bring disaster to
the atmosphere of the holidays.

Filled with natural pitch and
resin, Christmas trees are among
the most combustable objects
known. Once ignited, they burn
so rapidly that extinguishing the
flame is virtually impossible by
any methods ordinarily available.

PERRENIAL SNOWMEN-Winter means snowmen. If there's no
snow, then the snowman may have to be made of tumbleweed.
If there is snow, the standard variety can always be found.
