WELL, HE WANTED TO TOBOGGAN: James O'Sullivan, jr., 20, of 1402 Maywood Ave., could well have eyed longer the direction sign and less the snow-capped slopes of the Nichols Arboretum as he drove through the park about 10 a.m. today. Looking for a place to go tobogganing, O'Sullivan allowed his car to slide from the roadway. Although originally proceeding in the specified direction, O'Sullivan soon was headed in another.

LOVE THAT SNOW! The first "staying" snow brings glee to the faces of children as they take their first slides. That's the way it was with 2 1/2-year-old Elizabeth Ford, daughter of University Prof. and Mrs. George W. Ford, 1058 Martin Pl., as she used her saucer in Burns Park this morning. More snow will help speed up matters.

Winter sports fans at the Caberfae like to talk about the deep-dipping toboggan slide there, where averages of 52 miles an hour are normally attended. Earlier in the winter the toboggans were zooming down at 60 and more miles an hour, and safety-minded Caberfae sponsors tamed down the slide.

READY FOR THE START: Residents of Charlevoix find winter fun in utilizing the snow-season resources with which the city is endowed. Here is a load of youngsters preparing for a dash down the long coasting hill within the city. Outside the city there are still longer coasting runs and favorable terrain for skiing. Charlevoix also has carefully tended ice for skating, but as yet few visitors from other localities come to use the city's resources.
