Check Roads Before Going Skiing By M. R. SNOW Snow depth in the Southern California area continues to be measured in feet, but skiers are warned to check on road conditions before they head for the slopes. Because of the record storm that has been raising havoc throughout the state, some areas are difficult to reach. Many roads have been closed due to landslides, or undermined pavement. It is best to check with the highway department or those officials who have up-to-the minute reports of traveling conditions. Skiers should make certain they have tire chains handy at all times. If weather permits, the. big event of the week is now underway at Squaw Valley with the opening day of the World Cup Races. While this competition is going on, other meets MfKtor, U.S. AlplM Ski Twin, l Hiton X SKI Miflriw also scheduled: Junior point meet at Mt.

JACK WATKINS GMC Diomond Reo Trucks 2699 Atlantic Ave. GA 7-7466 STEP YOUR TURN The step turn is one used by racers to make a quick change in direclion and to keep a good line between the gates in a slolon or giant slalom course. It's also a useful turn for recreational skiers. For one thing, it helps develop independent leg ac- ·tion, making you morn flexible in responding to changes in terrain. You may use the step turn to add variety to your downhill runs or in negotiating a series of moguls. Here's how to do it: Using moderately steep terrain at first, start the skis parallel downhill from a steep traverse with weight on the downhill ski. Step the un- weighted uphill ski uphill and shift your weight on to it. Face the upper body downhill with hands forward. Press the uphill knee in, to edge the ski. You will turn downhill into the fall line. Bring the unweighted inside ski parallel In finish the turn.

It. Ta« rtcmerf ind a Ktreidrtli tin »« ]"' There's been a powerhouse slowly building in Long Beach the past two years and it looks as if the architect's final touches will be finished before the end of May. It's in gymnastics and Long Reach City College coach John Dniglii is the main factor in making the Vikings one of the best teams in the state. Draghi, entering his t h i r d season, has brought the Vikings from a token eight-man team in 1966 to a title contender for the second year in a row. There are 23 men on the team, the largest turnout ever at LBCC. Last season, the Vikings finished second in the slate to perennial champion Pasadena City College, which has won the title more times than anyone can remember. The Lancers are In the Metropolitan Conference this year. Draghi, 35-year-old USC graduate, is optimistic about the team's chances this year, despite the fact that No. 1 Pasadena, No. 4 Pierce and No. 5 Santa Monica, are in the same conference. "We've got chances at finishing first in the state in all six events," Draghi said enthusiastically. "The best shot is in the rings." Draghi has nine lettermen and a balanced squad nf 12 sophomores and 13 freshmen, including Hirer: of Lakewood High's CIF championship team of last yoar. "Watch out for Dale Fage," Draghi says. "He's had a five-year layoff. He's 23 and just now coming c;:. He's our top free ex-performer, as well as first in Ihe long horse and third on the high bar. He's a natural leader." Key performers on the team are Dan Uyeda, Jim Jennings, Rich Swartz, Bob Lander, Darryl Miller and Gary Albitz, along with Page. U y e d a , a sophomore from Jordan, is "the best side-horse performer I've ever coached," Draghi says, "and that includes seven CIF and two national champions." Uyeda was second in the state in that event last year. Draghi can also look for strong performances from Albitz, who won the parallel bars in the state finals last year, along with Swartz, defending Metro champion and second in the state on the rings last year. "He's the finest ring man ever to come out of Long Beach," according to Draghi. Miller was the Metro tumbling champ and Jennings is a good bet to take all-around honors, competing in all six events. Landers is a freshman from Lakewood and won the CIF championship on the parallel bars last year. Schedule: Feb. 28 Cfll Slate Fuller-ton Homn 3 0 f i ; Viflrci 6 Trade rech Therr 3 D'TII..
