'Junior Editor Quit on- SNOWMOBILES IN THE OLD PAYS 1927 -DEVOLVING TRACK LOMG WAV, FAST/ QUESTION: Who invented snowmobiles and why? ANSWER: Back in 1922 a bright young Canadian teenager named J. Armand Bombardier become so smart at tinkering with his father's car that dad Bombardier bought him an old Ford to keep him happy. Flash— young J. Armand got a big idea. He got four runners from an old horse sleigh, mounted the engine from his car on top, attached a homemade aircraft-type propeller in back. Then he and a friend got this contraption out on the snow, cranked her and away she went—the first snowmobile. It ran—for a mile. Father B. objected that it was too dangerous. Five years later, J. Armand got a better idea. He mounted a new pair of rear wheels in front of his car's old ones, installed an endless belt outside the tires, which would grip the snow as a caterpillar tractor grips the ground. In front, he substituted two ski-type runners for the front wheels, which could be turned for steering. This was the true snowmobile. J. Armand refined it and it became the daddy of the great snowmobile development of the present. Today thousands of young (and older) persons ride their little ski broncs over snowy fields as a fascinating if somewhat dangerouss sport.
