I always read retired game protector Bill Bower's column in Sunday papers. Dad was in the first Game Commission Training School and I was a deputy for several years.
Last Sunday's "Reflections in Nature," while different from many of his columns, I found especially interesting. When the Miller family arrived in Lewisburg in the 30s to start Dad's career teaching engineering at Bucknell, we moved into a home directly across from the campus. When the snow arrived, we discovered a great sled run directly across the street, with a fine "goose bump" at the bottom. We had three lightning glider type of sleds which saw good service several winters. When we moved to a different house many blocks away, the sled fun ended and I haven't had such fun since. I ended up giving the sleds to a nephew's family in town and I don't know where they are now.
Many thanks to Mr. Bower for the memories.
