SKIERS TO GO TO VERMONT

ISU Opens Today; Ames, Ferner, Best Contenders

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Unless the weatherman breaks down today and sends some much-needed snow to Burlington. Vermont, the first two events of the annual I. S. U. ski meet opening there this morning will have to be run off on dangerous crust and ice.

Nine teams besides Harvard are entering the tournament, in which the Crimson will probably find itself in a better position to vie for top honors than at the Dartmouth Carnival two weeks ago because McGill and the Norwegian Air Force are not represented this time.

Captain Del Ames heads the list as usual and is the only man slated for the four events. He and Finn Fernei running the downhill, slalom, and cross country, will probably pull in most of the points garnered by the Harvard skiers.

Ferner Well Again

Ames took an unfortunate spill in the downhill at Hanover which cost him one of the top places, but with luck he should figure well against MacLane of Dartmouth and Townsend and Clark of New Hampshire. Ferner is fully recovered from his two broken ribs and ought to be among the first finishers in his three events.

Tom Winship is running the down-mountain race on the Teardrop trail, as well as the slalom and jump. Roger Wilson and Lindley Burton will participate in both the eight-mile langlauf and the jump. Jack Crawford has also been entered in these two events; Phil Field is scheduled to race in the slalom, and Bungle King in both speed tests.

Conditions for skiing are almost uniformly poor all over New England, and racers will have to be extremely careful all the way if they expect to stand up. There are several inches of powdered snow on the upper parts of the Teardrop, which turns into ruts and ice on the bottom half.

Competition will include representatives from the University of Vermont, sponsors of the meet, Dartmouth, New Hampshire, Norwich, Middlebury, Williams, Syracuse, Maine, and Amherst.
