Norway's Ski Slopes Need Snow Covering Oslo - (/P) - Norwegian Olympic authorities today called an the Army to get Ihe ski slopes of Nor- nfjell in shape for the opening of the Winter Games Thursday. Unless there is a fresh fall, the only hope for good conditions for f h e skiers is lo bring in snow by trucks. A gafe whipped off most of the covering on the slalom and downhill courses 70 mile* northwest of here. In Oslo, the executive body of the International Olympic Committee tackled, the thorny. Kastr West Gorman problem and rialled clown final arrangements for the sanies, which-run from Thursday through February 25. A forecast of what Olympic performances will be was jriven yesterday in the international speed-skating test at Hamar, whei: Norway's greatest athlete hero, | Hjalmar Andersen, bettered his own 10,000-meter speed-skating mark of 16:51.4 with an incredible time of 16:32.6. Practice continued today for two-man bobsleds on the brand new Olympic course but cMre warnings were sounded on what would happen when the bigger i and faster four-man bobs start ;oing Saturday. i "If four-man sleds come down 16 I wide open in the games you will r rce many casualties," said Donna 10 Fox, veteran American bobber 1 from Larchmont, N. Y. R i The snow situalion for the l f l ! games remained serious but \vas R j far from critical.
