Next week

SPORTS ILLUSTRATED puts the ball in play with its fourth annual Football Issue and starts it off with a milestone of its own, its first foldout cover, showing a dramatic moment in last year's action. Inside will be a four-page section of football in color, a special illustrated feature on How to Watch Football and views of preseason campus preparations. For the first time there will be a special insert, to be detached and kept throughout the season, with scouting reports and schedules of 130 college teams, as well as Red Grange's selections for the Eleven Best Elevens of 1959.
