Barber Block THE FINER POINTS IN SKIING By FRED H. HARRIS, BRATTLEBORO . . In Seven Lessons Reprinted by Courtesy of Country Life. Through the courtesy of Country Life (Garden City, . N. Y.,) The Reformer is reprinting from the December number of that magazine an article entitled The Finer Points in Skiing, by Fred II. Har ris of Iirattleboro, chairman of the win ter sports committee of Rrattleboro Com munity Service. Mr. Harris has divided the article, which was illustrated by sev eral excellent halftone pictures, into seven lessons. It suggested that they be pre served by person interested in skiing, which seems destined to become a popu lar sport in this locality. LESSON ONE. If snowshoeing be the prose, then ski ing is the poetry of winter sports. It is worth taking up for many reasons. It combines the worth-while features of all winter sports. The whole, wide, Know covered world becomes your playground. You are not confined to the rink nor to natural ice which King Iloreas may offer you for a few weeks before covering it with snow. In real skiing country you c an count on months of sport each season. It always has something new to offer and never grows monotonous. No two ski hills are alike nor are the same hills alike on different days. Every new condition needs a new interpretation. It is surprising how quickly people pick up skiing if they understand the funda mentals, and especially if they have the benefit of a little coaching. It is easy of one starts right; Now and then you hear someone say, "No skiing for mine. I know. I tried it once and that was enough." To judge the sport after one trial would be as reasonable as to con demn music after trying once to play the piano. Such a trial might be made when the conditions were far from ideal, with out the proper coach or instructor at hand to start the beginner along the right lines. . . '"How do I get started?"' is the first question that occurs after you have de cided that skiing is the sport for you. First a few words about equipment. It is worse than useless to start with in complete or incorrect outfit. Fastenings are especially important. The lack of suitable foot binding.' on the .skis will set back the prospective ski runner at least a year. The children in Switzerland, Norway.and Sweden start right. No matter how young they commence, their enthusiastic parents see that they are provided with suitable fastenings, and this is one of the reasons why they be come so proficient. If you could have only onetor two things, good skis or cor rectly fitted bindings, it would be much better to have the latter. Correct ski boots are another item which should not be neglected. One could talk indefinitely on ski equipment, the right kind of cloth ing, etc., but it is a long story, and I will not go into it further here. (See" article "The Ski Runners Outfit" by Dwight Franklin in the February, 1D-1, issue of Country Life.) Stories of The Christmas Carols Prepared for Community Service by Prof. Tet er W. Dykems, Uni versity of Wisconsin, Madison, Wis. PAY-AS-YOU-GO POLICY ENDORSED Christmas Carols is a term used to de scribe a large variety of songs which are to be used during the Christmas season. They are of two main types the religious and the convivial: the one celebrating the birth of Jesus; the other exalting mirth and feasting. Only lately 1ms much atten tion been given to this material by serious j musicians. Dunns the lMh century the carol literature was of the humblest kind. Such material as was available was banded on by tradition. Many of the older ones have doubtless been entirely lost and many that we now hear have been considerably modernized. Davis Gilbert seems to have been the first per son who attempted to fix these vanishing memories of the past. The Reformer publishes herewith the 7th of a list of U of the best Christmas Carols which are to be used in Rrattle horo during the Christmas season under the inspiration of Community Service: It Came I'pon the Midnight C lear. War after year as the quiet clear nights of the Christmas season approach, the spirits of thousands who have a touch of jMietrv or imagination in them are stirred at the contemplation of the New Testament story of the birth of Jesus. What countless poems have been pro duced by writers, great and small ! One 01 the imest expressions is by an Ameri can, Edmund H. Sears, a Cnitarian min ister and a poet, who lived in Massachu setts from 1MO to 1S70. In December. 1S4!. he published in a religious journal th poem beginning It Came I'pon the Midnight Clear. He sent it to a brother clergyman, who fitted it to an old hymn tune, to which it is still often sung at Wellesley college. The next year, how ever, an American composer. Richard S. Willis, who had been struck will the un usual beauty of the poem, wrote an orig inal setting for it. This met with such favor that it is practically the only one now in general use. Moreover, because of its Christmas spirit it appropriately has been; given the hymn-Tune name, Carol. It is singularly effective in ren dering with the same music for all stan zas the four varying moods the first two depicting the angels hovering "over the earth and singing their joyous song, the third bringing words of comfort to the weary, the fourth prophesying the happy days when all the world shall join in the angels' song. 1 It came upon the midnight clear, That glorious song of old. From angels bending near the earth. To touch their harps of gold: "Peace on the earth, good will to men From heav'ns all gracious King." The world in solemn stillness lay To hear the .angels sing. O ye, beneath life's crushing load, Whose forms are bending low. Who toil along the climbing way With painful steps and slow! Look now. for glad and golden hours Come swiftly on the wing: O rest beside the weary road. And hear the angels sing. . For lo! the days are hnst'ning on, Ky prophets seen of old. When with the ever circling years, Shall come the time foretold. When the new heav'n and earth shall own The Prince of Peace their King. And the whole world send back the song Which now the angels sing. R. S. Willis. Next Carol : Good King Wenceslas. FISH AND GAME LICENSES. Department Received $50,893.45 Past Year. MONTPELIER.
