Former president John Nercesian is one of the few to beat the odds. He was married before taking office. Good luck, Paul. Marv's a Politician, Too Credit Marv Melville with some pretty slick public relations work which does not come under Ms duties as Ut« ski coach. WHEN THE U,S. Olympic Nordic Combined training squad was locking for a place to train for five days on its way from Colorado to Oregon, the Landes Jump at Alta was brought to coach Al Merrill's (he's also the Dartmouth U. coach) attention Due to Melville's and"the Ute ski squad's work, the hill was in tne best condition it's been in for several seasons. So, tbe training squad, from which the final Olympic ftordic Combined team will be selected, got plenty of work without needing a day or two to prepare a hill. Then Melville had the five members of the training squad and Merrill as his guests at a fancy dinner the other night giving the skiers and their coach a little hospitality since they were away from home on Thanksgiving Day. MARV WD ALL THIS on his own. This leaves one to wonder what ever became of the group that was organized especially tor such public relations work in promoting Utah skiing?

The second half was less frenetic although the Lions stayed close enough to keep the crowd of 3,387 spending its energies on Christmas boos. Then the Utes, led by Spence thurgood, expanded a four-point lead to a safe 15 from 61-57 and 5:40 left on the clock. Thurgood took second place scoring honors with 17 behind George Usher's 18, the same number as Loyola's Jim O'Keefe. Doug Moon of the Utes canned 16. Six of the TJtt-s, including all the starters, were in double figures as Dennis Couch and Skip Kroeger each scored 10 and reserve center Chuck Currington chipped in with 13.
