    SPORT: SKATING

    Background: Japanese are taking to the ice, both indoors and out, as the nation experiences a boom in skating. Like golf, skiing, and bowling, anything that becomes as "in" fad in Japan very quickly is crowded past capacity by thousand of enthusiasts eager to be seen by other thousands of enthusiasts. The boom is good news to manufacturers of skating equipment, sweater, jackets and slacks-and, probably, to manufacturers of adhesive bandages and iodine.

    While thousands of skaters produce traffic congestion on frozen lakes in such mountain resorts as Hakone, at the base of Mt. Fuji, more thousands unable to get away from the capital flock to big indoor rinks in Tokyo.
