New Ski-Tow Etiquette Proposed for Hand book On November 14th a ski-tow was built at Newton College running north-north-east by south-south-west on Duchesne hill. This is the first ski-tow to be erected on the college grounds and, it is hoped, the first step towards the building of the longed for board-walk. This reporter remembers a crisp December morn in '52 when a certain professor (he remains unidentifiable) stating that he wished to go to the library, disappeared rapidly down Duchesne hill.

The new athletic Newtonite can now approach the hill with confidence and a feeling...
