W h a t W e W a n t e d Season's First Snow Brings Back Skiing; Mercury Drops All area ski centers are expected to be in opere.tion this weekend a s a result of a 12-inch snowfall Monday. Bel- leayre reports good-to-excel- lent conditions and will have all lifts in operation. In addition to the natural cover there is a 20-inch m an-m ade base on the W anatuska and Belleayre trails and on the novice T-bar slope. Superintendent Nelson Sears reports a larger than norm al num b er of inquiries from the m etropolitan area. He said m any ask what the distance is and what is the gasoline situation here. Several said they had previously been goin^ to New England and the Adirondacks. Season ticket sales are down, partly from a lack of snow last year, when such purchasers did not receive their m oney’s worth because of lack of skiing. The storm , which had been predicted for three days, finally hit the m ountains Sunday night. By dawn Mon­ day there were upw ards of nine inches over the commun­ ities, and area schools ex­ perienced their first snow day of the winter. State, county and town highway crews were out with plows and sanders, but did not put in as heavy a night schedule a s in other years as gas-saving m easures were instituted. Traffic along high­ ways was extrem ely light, ?md police agencies credit this with a m inim um of accidents.

The sale was m ade through Edith Morse, Andes b roker. dieted for tonight, Thursday, and again on S aturday. Sunday’s storm moved up the coast and struck at m etropolitan New York and New Jersey regions long before it hit the CatskiUs. City folk, unused to the rigors of such a storm , had m ore difficulty coping with it than did mountain dwellers. How­ ever, the 10 degree below cold and lower of Tuesday night and W ednesday m orning has given anxious hours to resi­ dents keeping an anxious eye on the gauges on their fuel tanks. The period from now to New Y e a r’s d ay will be a good test of the effect the gasoline shortage and Sunday closing of service stations will have on the resort-based economy of the Catskills. With good skiing and cold w e a ther predicted, m any hope that the a r e a ’s nearness to the m etropolitan population Daylight Hits Low Point In Year Friday The w inter solstice occurs at 7:08 p.m. tomorrow, F r i­ day, m aking official the season that actually began in earnest Sunday. The day is also called the shortest of the year, with nine hours and 20 minutes of daylight. However, the afternoons have been gradually length­ ening and already daylight has gained three m inutes since Friday. ’The earliest sunset, 4:35 p .m ., was reach­ ed on Dec. 1 and this tim e continued until Dec. 14. Sunrise will be at 7:18 a.m . tomorrow and will continue becoming later u ntil well into January before it turns a- round. And a s the days grow longer, the cold grow s stronger.

In sending out invitations, Supervising Principal Lloyd T. Johns wrote: “Your contributions throughout the years have been m any and som e of you are still our b iggest taxpayers and supporters. Our youth is indebted to you for the leadership you have shown for it was through y o u r efforts we have a school.” Those who plan to attend are asked to either call or write the school so th a t the cafeteria staff m ay have an idea of how m any to expect. High school g irls will serve a s w aitresses. The annual school Christ­ m as dinner will be held prior to this on the sam e day. Turkey and all the trim m ings will be on both menus. centers will help stave oft' what appears to be a severe? jolt to business. While not evident durln^;^ the deer hunting seasonj' those who cater to week^'': enders say their business haii^ decreased to an alarm ins- extent. Lewis Kolar, vlc*l president of Roxbury Run »2 says his firm is receiving large num ber of inquiries on'\ rentals for the holidays, a n d a sm all num b er seek season^ rentals, but alm ost none ard looking to buy. ’The worli^ force has been cut from high of 60 to half a dozen, a much larger drop that n o rm al seasonal lay-off. Vincent Giacci, p resident of Belleayre village at Hlgh- mount, said yesterday they are receiving no inquiries on: their development. Normally;, with good skiing, m any would be looking at lots. His A ita Industries at Halcottvllle,- w h ich m a n u factu r e s log homes and distributes them on a national level, is not aa. severly affected and sales a r e continuing on a seasonal basis. One large restaurant with a capacity of several hundred, served 12 dinners Sunday. Burton Jenkins of R edm o n d Realty at Arkville says his inquiries have not had m o re than a seasonal drop, except in properties at the price range above $15,000. An advertism ent in m etropolitan area newspapers for p roperty under the above price brings m any answers. He feels any slowdown is m ore a reflection of tight money and the falling stock m a rket than the gaso­ line shortage.
