THE BROWN BULLETIN Page Seven WINTER SPORTS HE dog team pictured upon our front T cover brings to mind once more the fact that the North Country, over which the interests of the employees of the Brown Company and Brown Corpora- tion are widely dispersed, has in the past had an unchallenged monopoly in winter sports. This year, it is believed, will be no exception and all centers will have their own attractions. While there may be differences in the events that are pos- sible at each place, the same spirit of good cheer and good fellowship will characterize all of these celebrations. Following our usual custom, we solicit interesting photographs from all points. In the nature of things, we cannot give up-to-the-minute accounts of each cele- bration. The daily and weekly press must accomplish this. As a monthly, we shall attempt to record those photographs that may have permanent interest. The biggest event of the year is the Eastern International Dog Sled Derby to be run Madrid Mill. Berlin Mills Company, Phillips, Me. About 1910.

In 1922, the route was from Berlin through Errol and the Dixville Notch to Colebrook; thence by North Stratford and Groveton to Lan- caster ; and from there through Jefferson, Randolph and Gorham to Berlin. It is only fair that this race should be held under the Union Jack this year. In view of the dates, it seems wise to feature photographs of the Quebec events in the issue for April. We assure our Quebec friends that they can have ample space in this issue. The Berlin Carnival will be held on the first three days of February, taking ad- vantage of all of the good weather usually Boarding'House, Madrid Mill.

There may also materialize a dog race, second only in promise to the Quebec event. The right of way in our March issue is reserved for this carnival. The Gorham Carnival is booked for January 18, 19 and 20. In spite of the fact that these dates lie in the shadowy time of the month, when photographs should be on their way back from the engravers, we shall do our level best to feature this carnival in the February Boiler Room at Farmingdale Mill, Mr. C.
