COVER: Girl in the surf

Even an inlander can feel the tug of the sea, the tingling chill and the salty exhilaration of surf bathing in this cool, blue picture of pretty Pamela Nelson, wife of a Navy officer, who was swimming at Jones Beach, Long Island when Photographer Meek came by in his swim trunks and carrying, of all things, an underwater camera. Meek decided to shoot above water at this target of opportunity.
