Monarchs, Bobby Axtell and Laura Stevens reigned over the weekend’s festivities, March 14 and 15. The formal ball terminating the weekend on Saturday evening was the first to be held here on campus. The beautifully decorated hotel dining room and lounge made an elaborate plaisance for the couples and guests. Everyone had a grand time and it is evident that future carnival dances are “Campused” to stay. The carnival got underway Thurs day night with the ski rally in the recreation hall. An amusing skit was presented by “ R ainbow” W right, Harry Cairney and Jim Gragg. Movies on skiing were shown and ski songs sung. The inter-collegiate racing started Friday morning, continuing through Saturday, with the downhill, slalom and jumping contests at J en k i n s M ountain. Visiting teams were A.T.I. of Canton, St. Lawrence University B Team, Clarkson College, Potsdam State Teachers College, and the In terstate Ski Club of Alleghany, New York. A fter the meet on Saturday, a skiers banquet was served in the cafeteria and prizes and trophies a- warded. The interdorm snowshoe races were staged during the cross country race on Friday afternoon. The favored Lambert team was up set and Dorm I stumbled off with the trophy it has held for 2 successive years. The sock dance in the brilliantly decorated recreation hall opened the Friday night activities. All attend ing couples joined the grand march from which the king and queen, with two attending couples were chosen. Dr. Picket, Mr. Rutherford, Mr. Twombly, Mr. Tyldesley, Mrs. Basile and Miss Crawford served as judges. Chairman, Neal Schaefer announced the judges’ choice. The monarchs, with their courtiers, Ann Luce and Donchey; Anne Snell and Bob Pot ter, were escorted to the ice throne near dorm I where the corona tion was completed by President Buxton. Simultaneously, skiers, bear ing torches, swerved down the campus slope. The hill, lighted with the big letters, “ Ski Spree\ was a most spectacular sight. The huge ice throne represented a sphinx with a cat-like head upon which was placed a crown of fir bows. The figure, decorated by Joe Krochina, was beautifully colored and “Kollege Kalamity” to Be Presented April 2 On Wednesday, April 2, the Hot el Club of Taul Smith's College will present a variety show, “Kollege Kal- amity” r.t the Town Hall in Saranac Lake.

The result of the judging was a win for the crea tion of “ B utch\ W right and Joe Krochina. Their statue was a giant skier with face buried in the snow and skis protruding in air. At the base of the statue were the letters “ Bottoms Up.” Joe and “ B utch” did not overlook anything. They built a snow hut in the base for the kiddies to play. Red and blue col oring on the figure was particularly effective. A fter Saturday events at Jenkins, the evening began with a cocktail party at 5:30 p.m. in the hotel, fol lowed by a banquet, for couples and guests, in the cafeteria. The ball which began at 9:30 continued until 2:00 a.m., the band playing an ex tra forty five minutes. The 1952 W inter Carnival, as in the past, had been proven a great success.
