YEARS AND years ago we toured Western Canada with a theatrical company. Whether the place (and the audience) was large or small, the manager of the troupe never failed to spring his nightly joke. He would poke his head round the dressing room door and whisper: “Psst-the Schuberts are in front tonight.” This was a quip employed by all show managers. Probably it still is.

"Bend Zee Knees"

THE ONLY way to be a good skier is to take lessons. You can’t learn it out of a book. I asked Hermann Gadner, ski instructor in the Laurentians, if he knew of any good skiers who had been self-taught. “Yes,” he replied, “I know of some who are good from skiing twenty or twenty-five years, but on the whole you can’t learn how to ski well without being taught—not in the first ten years, anyway!” Like the golf tyro, the skiing beginner can’t see himself in action, and if there’s no one there to point out his errors he soon finds that “his little mistakes become big mistakes,” as Gadner puts it.
