VAN HOEVRNBRRG * < OLYMPIC HOB-HUN \ FINISH LAKE .yc^cm, N. Y. — Bobsledding records arc expected lo tumble right and left when international teams in the Third Olympic Winter Games start competition on the Mt. Van Hoevenbci-g Olympic bob-run here early in February. It's Icy surface • and ureath-taking curves will thrill even the most hardened competitor;. The Mt. Von Hoevenbergr run Is 'he first of international specifications ever built in North America. It was designed by Stanislaus Zenlzytzkl of Berlin, and named 'or Henry Von floevenbprg, one of Jw pioneers of this section ol th« Adirondacks. The- run Is approximately one and a half miles long und maintains an average drop of about 10 per cent. Something like 27,374 cubic r ards of earth and rock were moved o build it. When the Red Devil team of Saranac Lake flashed down the mountain run in 1:52 a year ago, a vorid record was established. Thei Red Devils averaged 46 miles an \ •hour nml on some of the hi"h curves flew along at C5 miles an hour. Straightaways on the Mt. Von Hcevenber* run are six -incl a half feet wide, but some ot the curves are 22 feet high, their towering -banks of ice-covered stone inning up almost at right angles to the bottom.
