•The fourth annual two-in-one issue covers a lot of territory—from 1919 to late 1960. Gerald Holland documents the rise of Babe Ruth's Yankees; the new Silver Anniversary All-America team is announced; Champion Jim Shoulders shows you how to watch a rough sport—rodeo. Dmitri Kessel takes you into the future—the 1960 Olympic year—with an 18-page color portfolio on Rome, assisted by Samuel Chamberlain (food) and Horace Sutton (travel). Plus the Bowl Game Previews, the Goren Bridge Quiz and, of course, the news.
