\\lmtinq Tkrt Smmoblk)v\ &mk iattk EW2F "Button Snow Lover Customers who dropped in at the telephone office Thursday, asked Mrs. Mildred Lewis if she had ordered the snow and she freely admitted it. She hasn't had many rides on her snowmobile yet this winter, she confessed, and she thought snow would be just the thing for the Estherville Winter Sports Festival. By CAROL II1GGINS As Estherville's first January snow fell Thursday, Mrs. Mildred Lewis was saying, "You can almost spot them today, they go down the street with a grin on their faces." She was identifying the snowmobilcrs and Mildred herself, service representative at Estherville's Northwestern Bell Telephone office, was wearing one of the brightest smiles anywhere. She has been a snowmobile enthusiast about three years, she says, since ohe and her husband, Jerry, of Wallingfordpurchasedtheirfirst "We rode double for two years," she says, then bought a second snowmobile. "This is the first year I have had my own sled. I am finding it a great deal more fun being able to drive myself than to ride behind somebody ... "You get out in this fresh air and if you are dressed for it (which you have to be), you come in and you sleep like a baby. It's very invigorating." They are members of the Traiibreakers Snowmobile Club which consists of about 65 couple s f rom Emmet County. On planned rides, the group, usually consisting of 40 or 50 sleds, will break into three smaller parties. "You go for awhile, then whoever is leading your group will stop every so often and count sleds. On one ride, this girl and her mother were riding on one sled. After we had counted sleds, we took off and there was a ditch and a steep bank and the girl yelled at her mother to hang on. When we stopped again for a count, she looked around and her mother wasn't there." They found the mother waiting at the previous counting stop, Mildred says. Several of the members have First Aid training and Mildred and her husband completed such a course this winter. However, Mildred believes that "if you are a conscientious driver and don't horse around, a snowmobile can be just as safe as other vehicles. One of the aims of the club is to promote safety and courtesy. You have some bad snowmobilers and you also have bad drivers in other vehicles. We have films — talks from different people— if we receive a complaint, we would like to know about it if it involves one of our members. Our membership is growing and our members are very, very nice people" is her conclusion. At the Winter Sports Festival, this year, Mildred says she will be "a looker." For the past two years she has helped with organizing and running the food concession held in the airport hangar during snowmobile races. "There is a tremendous amount of work that goes into making the festival a success," she says, and many "behincRhe- scenes" people in addition to the Chamber of Commerce are involved. The Trail- breakers Club are volunteer workers for the Festival. The Saddle Club takes care of parking' cars at the airport. Various other organizations have a hand. She cites compliments which help to make the work worthwhile. "We have heard from last year's judges that this is one of the nicest tracks (for snowmobiles) in the Midwest," she says. Also, "We got the comment last year, they found our river, was an excellent course for the sled dog races." Getting to know people who come from many different places for the festival is what makes it fun, she says. The women who worked at the concession were scheduled for certain hours, "but many people, when the relief girl came, said, 'Oh, Pm having fun,' and they didn't leave." And when it's over, "You're tired, but you're a good tired when you're done. "I love people, I really do. I find that probably 99 per cent are extremely nice and the other one per cent I can sure get along with."

BY CAROLYN WALZ Acting Librarian BOOK OF SPORTS, BOOK OF DOGS, AT YOUR PUBLIC LIBRARY. What could be more timely than to have two books on these subjects arrive just in time for the Estherville Winter's Sports Festival? A CENTURY OF SPORTS by the Associated Press Sports Staff is a big, new book, capturing exciting moments of more than 40 different sports. Although it is somewhat like an encyclopedia, you will find it to be more enjoyable because it is the moving story of the births of all sports and their developments through the last 100 years. Great personalities such as Babe Ruth in baseball, Jack Dempsey in boxing, Bill Tilden in tennis and Bobby Jones in golf, all come alive again in vivid accounts of each sport's evolution — triumphs and tribulations. This book is flavored with anecdotes concerning several of the greater stars. Many contests and spectacles are revived. Each chapter in this book is written by a specialist in the respective field. These sports staff writers are very familiar with the people and events they are writing about because they have lived with the sport. For example, Alejandro Torres Vic­ toria of Madrid, co-author with John Wheeler for the section on bullfighting, has covered bullfights in Spain for more than 20 years. Every contributor to this book is an expert on his particular subject. This book is thorough in its history, as alive and as fresh as today. THE INTERNATIONAL ENCYCLOPEDIA OF DOGS edited by Stanley Danger fie id andElsworth Howell. This encyclopedia of dogs is the first major work of its kind to be published in more than forty years. The arrange- ! ment of the dogs in the book is alphabetical with many cross- references.
