WITT, OWENS HONORED AT WINTER CARNIVAL Beginning with a ski meet at Jenkins Mt., Friday, Feb. 20, Paul Smith's 7th annual W inter Carnival started in high gear as Bob Axtell and Shirley Homburger took top honors in the downhill race. Nearly 50 couples joined in the festivities during the three-day carni­ val, which proved to be a big success. Friday afternoon a cross-country race was held with the start and finish on the hotel grounds. Axtell again won and so did our team. Dinner was served at 6 that even­ ing and then after a little delay the members of the ski torch parade lighted up the ski slope with the flaming words, Symphony on Snow, which was the theme for the carni­ val. They then paraded across the field to the snow statue for the coronation. The weather had warm­ ed up considerably by this time and the condition of the snow statue— huge ear muffs and ski boot — was becoming critical. A t about 8:30 N o ra W itt and Dick Owens were crowned King and Queen. The presentation of the crowns and gifts was made by President Buxton. They were then given a sleigh ride around the campus. The sleigh ride was planned to be one of the events for all, but due to the warmness of the weather it was not very popular. For the rest of the evening the couples danced in the hotel at a nicely-deco- rated sock dance. Saturday morning the slaloi1. was held at Jenkins M t. bob Dean of St. Lawrence, won firsc place with Bob Axtell a close second. O u r team won the event, howevet, on total points. Kay Knight, of Saranac Lake, won the women’s flalom with Shir­ ley Homberger, of Paul Smiths, sec­ ond. Lunch was se-ved at the moun­ tain, making it possible for everyone to stay for the jumping held in the afternoon. Our team also won this event, giving us a perfect victoiy throughout the enluc carnival. Later in the afternoon a banquet was held for all oarticipafcmg skiers. Frank Elkins, of The New Yoik Times, was guest speaker. Next on the list >.f activities was a cocktail party foil w e d by a turkey dinner in the gaily dccocatei dining hall and the Carnival ball held in the Hotel with music by Alf Eckman and his orchestra. On Sunday afternoon open house was held in the hotel between the hours of 2:30 and 4:00, for every­ one who wished to comc. Due to the late hours and excitement of the day before, however, very few couples showed up. Unfortunately, due to the warm weather, all the snow statues built by the various donas, melfcsd before they were judged. There was to have been a ten dollar prize for the best statue and several of the dorms really put a great deal of time and effort on their superb creations. Well, that’s it. The big weekend is over now and all the decorations are cleaned up and put away. As we look back on the swell time (Contunied on Page 4 Col. 2) SKI CHAMPIONSHIPS On Saturday, March 14, the N a t­ ional Cross Country Ski Champion­ ships were held at Paul Smith’s Col­ lege for the 2nd consecutive year.
