California claims that by 1960 it will have one that will top the famed M't. Van Hoevenberg bobrun at Lake Placid in northern New York. "It will be the fastest in the world" the west coasters predicted. The remark drew a friendly "pooh pooh" from New Yorkers. California's will have a concrete chute and the chute will have to use artificial ice. On the other hand, New York is a natural run, using natural ice and snow. And to top off i the argument, the New York Conservation Department pointed out that "the drivers are the 'ones who make the records." New York went a step further. It offered to lend some of its bobsled experts to California to help get the run underway. will open the Culver Skating rink June 29-30. It's located on West Jefferson street. A.
