Next week

The astonishing decade of the '60s, an unparalleled one in sport, is the theme of a Special year-end issue. A 42-page gallery of photographs presents the memorable moments and the heroes of the past 10 years, while William Johnson, in Part 1 of a series on the impact of television on sport, tells how the era of Super Spectator and Mass Com arrived to change—for better or for worse, but certainly forever—our sporting way of life. The Sportsman of the Year is named, a man whose achievements and personality say something of the past and future, too. The week's news will be fully covered as well; also, Stories on pro football and the forthcoming bowl games.
