At your ' lie, you really should play the field, Ski Tips By BOB CARTMELL Ski boots require the greatest amount of thought and care of any single piece of ski equipment. The boots are the brain power nf skiing that transforms the body motion to ski motion. They must be properly fitted and cared [or at all times. Boots should always be stored in a cool place in a "boot tree", (a device to keep the soles straight and unbent) and never placed near a fire or heater. If they become wet from a day of skiing, place them on a table or near the ceiling for overnight drying after stuffing them with paper or rags. Do not put your boots outside overnight, they will freeze up and become very uncomfortable for the next day's skiing. Boots should always be polished and sealed around the stitching and soles. A good coat of wax after each trip is recommended but never use oils or softening agents. Once boots become soft and pliable, it's time to buy new ones for you can no longer get proper transformation of weight and motion to your ski tips.

At (lie end of 1964, Sergio Mendes left Brazil with an American attorney for New York. There he formed a group called Brasil '65, cut a fairly unsuccessful album, and was about to go back home when he was introduced to Herb Alpert.
