Next week

THE NEW PRO SEASON: The AFL is underway, the NFL begins next Sunday and the two football leagues are not what they were. Sliced into four divisions, the NFL could come up with a new champion (but the Packers are favored). Kansas City is best in the AFL West (if it does not falter against strong teams grown stronger). Scouting reports on all the major teams, action color shots of the stars of both leagues, appraisals by Tex Maule and Edwin Shrake and, for the less serious-minded, a gruesome account of touch football as only frustrated pros can play it supplement the usual mix of other sports in the week's news.
