Bennington Banner (Newspaper) - February 4, 1966, Bennington, Vermont Bruins being a battered while e Green recovers Boston up a the Boston Bruin colors Are Black and Gold but they re rapidly becoming Black and Blue during the absence of Ted Green. The Bruins had constructed a rare four game winning Streak just before Green suffered a knee injury that knocked him out of action for a month. When Green traded skates for crutches the Bruins dropped into a losing Streak that now reads three games. The latest Licking was a 4-2 Job at the hands of Detroit. The win promoted the wings into a first place National hockey league tie with Idle Chicago. And the decision stemmed primarily from the fact that the surviving Boston defense men simply could t blast the fed wings out from their pet parking places directly in front of goalie Bernie Parent. Gordie Howe shattering his personal 20-goal Barrier for the 17th successive season Bruce Macgregor and Alex Delvec Chio scored for the wings in the second half of the first period after Boston had dominated the play for the opening ten minutes.

But he did t say much about them except to Praise Awrey for playing with a temperature of 101 degrees. Detroit s Floyd Smith scored his 15th goal of the season in the second period to give the wings a commanding 4-0 bulge. Johnny Bucyk and John Mckei it Zie scored later for the Bruins to break Roger Crozier s bid for his third shutout of the season against Boston. Smith has now scored nine times against Boston and six times against fifth place new York. The shooting statistics gave the Bruins an Edge. Boston launched 35 shots at Crozier and Detroit had 32 on Parent. Crozier it should be noted had an outstanding night which included several saves on shots he could not have seen until the very last second. The Bruins were slated to hold a meeting for their healthy members today. sweep by Lee Goerlich the first american ski school was organized by a couple of germans More than 30 years ago. They were Otto Schniebs a native of Germany and an expert skier who trained the instructors and Fred Pabst jr., scion of the Milwaukee brewing family who had the knowhow and wherewithal for the promotion. ,. Fred created about 20 ski areas scattered from Wisconsin to Vermont and Canada before he settled Down to running Bromley. ,. Quot i was Hunting in Alaska in 1934. So it must have been in 1935 when i installed four rope tows in Canada Quot he reminisced. Quot the first rope Tow on Little Bromley was in 1937. I designed a a bar for Iron Mountain in Michigan. And we installed one at Wausau the highest Hill in Wisconsin. There Are no mountains there. And we installed a rope Tow at Scott Scoble at Lake Placid Quot he said. European skiers were coming Here. To make themselves heard they were advocating various methods of skiing. Quot i Felt that there should be a Standard method taught. I set up the ski areas Otto supplied the instructors Quot Fred said. Pabst is a big Man just a Quarter of an Inch shy of 6 feet 4. He weighs 220 pounds which he says is too much. Quot but i Don t get any exercise since i can no longer he broke his hip last year. Quot Ana Don t forget to Tell people that it was t skiing Quot he said. He sustained the break when he slipped and fell on the platform of the chair lift while removing ice from the equipment. His presence personality and work seem to overflow the boundaries of his Small Bromley office. Letters papers graphs and charts cover every Inch of his desk. Some Are filed in neat piles on the floor. The phone rings constantly and problems and people flow in and out of the office in a never ending Stream. The Banner ski reporter arrived a few minutes ahead of three photographers last Friday. They were Ernie Gay and Hanson Carroll free lancers and Peter Miller managing editor of Vermont skiing. Pabst arranged for lift tickets and a guide for the men and settled Back to answering questions and the Telephone. One Call was from Tony Adams of radio station Wax in Burlington who wanted Fred to tape a ski report. Quot this is Fred Pabst of Bromley Quot he recited into the phone gave the report and signed off Quot this is Fred Pabst of ski school director Ace Manley came in looking for permission to show a ski film to a school group. The children were Young and the teacher Felt it was too cold for them to take their usual lessons. Permission was granted. A cd Bromley has a history which dates Back to rope tows and Chick sales outhouses but has kept up with present Day demands of the stretch set. Bromley s Nursery was the first at a ski area. They installed the first pizza bar. And there is the usual cafeteria restaurant and cocktail lounge. Richard Percey the bartender is a veritable Fountain of information who spouts Forth at the drop of a question. He can Tell you the length of the chair lifts How Many chairs Are on them the Vertille drop of the Mountain the extent of the Snow making operation and How Many people take Scenic rides on a Busy fall Day 400. The Bromley room sports a miniature dance floor and the Only chinese cuisine i be come across at a ski area. The Cook and his wife Are straight from China. He Speaks very Little English and his wife none. Sally Pabst took Ernie and me to the Kitchen introduced us to the people and proudly displayed the chinese stove. Two Gigantic cauldrons Over Gas burners Are nearly permanent fixtures on the stove. Swinging faucets provide water for cooking and cleaning. Clear water and a wire Brush Are used for washing the huge Metal bowls. Waste water is tipped out into a Drain at the Back of the stove. The food was excellent a far cry from the hot dogs and Coffee which was the fare in the old rope Tow Days. A of a it was Otto who coined the phrase Quot skiing is not merely a sport. It is a Way of when he first came to America he worked in the technical office of the Waltham watch co. He immediately tried to transmit his love of skiing to the residents of the area. His first classes were at the Brae Burn country club in West Newton mass. In 1927. Otto a enthusiasm for the sport soon involved him in a program for the physical education department at Amherst College. Then he became coach of the Harvard Mountain club in 1928. As a result of Otto s training Harvard skiers beat Dartmouth last year. So Otto was hired to coach the Dartmouth team in 1930. It was while he was at Dartmouth that the american ski school was established. The training was Gratis. Quot i just wanted to get americans on skis Quot Otto explains. Quot i had 46 instructors at one time. All they had to do was sign a contract on ethics. Quot i recommend this method today Quot he adds quickly. Quot you can be idealistic but everyone can t afford to be a fool like me. I m still Selling ski equipment to earn a living. But i had wonderful a of Otto now lives in Wilmington n.y., and runs ski shops at Lake Placid and the nearby Whiteface ski area. He retired a few years ago As coach of the St. Lawrence University ski team. He retains much of the accent that made his ski teaching colourful. Typical of his phrases is Quot one fluently motion Quot and there Are others not so easily repeated. Nobody agrees whether it was the Harvard boys or the men at the Waltham watch co. Who were responsible for teaching Otto his English. But for a while until he realized what was happening his Iii auctions to skiers were liberally punctuated with profanity.
