Freddy Bigelow's record breaking win in the University ski race last Sunday, points to a potent team for this season. Only Wendell M. Hastings and Henry S. Parker, Jr. are gone through graduation, and the present contenders have certainly not lost their touch.
A man to watch this year will be James Laughlin, 4th '38, who showed up as a very pretty skier. He has had previous experience in Austria.
Peculiarly enough, many of the Freshmen with several years of skiing in Switzerland did not show up well. Trails seem to be the bugaboo of many European trained skiers, and not being accustomed to them, they get nervous. It takes a while for them to get on to the ropes of trail running. Later on we'll be hearing more about Freshmen.
