Chilean and Harvard Skiers Dine at Dunster As U. S. Showers Latins With Good Will Gifts

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Chile's six-man ski squad, now touring the United States on the receiving end of a big dose of good neighborliness, dined in state in Dunster House Wednesday beneath the Stars and Stripes and a huge Chilean Flag.

The dinner for the visiting South American schussmen was given by Clarence H. Haring '07, Robert Woods Bliss Professor of Latin-American History and Economics and Master of Dunster House. Guests included Harvard ski team members, members of the first and second United States ski teams which went to Chile in 1937 and 1938, and other men interested in Chile and Chilean skiing.

The Chileans are reaping the rewards of the good neighbor policy. In New York they each received a free pair of skis and boots, and a Boston store is giving them another pair of skis each.

Sponsored by the National Ski Association of America, the Chilean waxed stave artists will be in America for two months. They were sent by the National Ski Association of Chile to compete with skiers from New Hampshire to Colorado

Two U. S. Teams to Chile

Since then two U. S. teams have competed in the Pan American ski championships held in the Andes in 1937 and 1938. Du Bois, chairman of the Chilean Team Committee of the National Ski Association of America, is making all arrangements for the Chilean skiers tour.

Two pairs of brothers are on the team: Engine "Canuto" and Ignacio Errazuriz, and Julio and Jaime Zegers, who with Henrique Zorrilla, "Lucho" Mitrovitch and Arturo Podesta, manager, make up the squad.

With the exception of Captain Errazuriz, the members of the team are all University students in Santiago. Captain "Canuto" has spent most of his life in Europe, and roomed with George B. Feete '41 at school in Switzerland one year
