Ice Carnival.
Centered around the theme of "Madison Avenue Mania," the 1966 Ice Carnival
promised a fun-filled time for all. The events began Thursday evening with ice skating
competition at 6:00 p.m. in the arena with fraternities, sororities, and non-Greek organizations
skating in six events: men's and women's singles, men's and women's relay, and men's and
women's obstacle races. Following that competition, students adjourned to the Hill cafeteria for
the traditional warm-up dance featuring the "Vibrations" and a square-dance band. Fireworks

parties at the fraternity houses. Saturday began at 10:00 a.m. at St. Lawrence's Snow Bowl in
South Colton with skiing events in downhill, slalom, and giant slalom for men, and downhill,

paintings in the store windows of downtown Potsdam, and the ice statues adorning many
fraternity, sorority, and dormitory lawns.
On Saturday afternoon at 2:30, the St. Lawrence Skating Club accompanied by several
professional skaters performed in the Ice Show at the Clarkson Arena. Those star skaters
included Gold Medal winners and Eastern Skating Champions such as Honey Kerr, Jill Osborn,
