Next week

From Rome comes a report on how matters stand on the eve of the Olympics—and from Bern an account of the U.S. track team's performance in a warmup meet in Switzerland.

Who was—or is—Jack Doyle? Prizefighter, wrestler, Irish tenor and betting man, he is one of the funniest characters you—or Patrick Campbell, who writes of him—ever met.

A classic mountaineering adventure, brilliantly illustrated in color pictures: the trials and triumph of the Swiss conquerors of Dhaulagiri, the Himalayas' dread "peak of storms."
