Pat On The Back
  • Herewith a salute from the editors to men and women of all ages who have fairly earned the good opinion of the world of sport, regardless of whether they have yet earned its tallest headlines

Under 21
  • The good old game of touch, with rules or without, provides football fun for everyone without the spills and skills demanded by the regular game

The World Series
Soundtrack
Foxhounds
The Bands Play
  • Fancy-free and full of fanfare, football music fills the air with its magnificent manifestations of a martial mania as old as the game itself

  • The violent upsets shown on this and following pages are not the sort of action spectators at the National Horse Show next month are likely to see. To riders and horses preparing for the elegant precision which the arena requires, however, they are normal hazards—and they show that mastering the delicate art of jumping thoroughbreds is a sport which is anything but tame

Sunday Pilot
Sporting Look
  • For fifty years the opening day at Belmont Park has brought out the first fall fashions in the East. This year there was no doubt about the favorite for suits and coats: tweeds—win, place and show

Bowling
Baseball
Horse Racing
Sport In Art
Boxing
Eastern Football
Yesterday
  • Born in Cooperstown, N.Y. in 1859 and still living there, Putt Telfer has recorded village sport scenes for 75 years

COVER: A dedicated Oklahoma bandsman

Photograph by JERRY COOKE

A football game without a band is like a hot dog without mustard (see The Bands Play On, p. 38). At the University of Oklahoma where they pride themselves on their gaudy, red-jacketed musicians, Photographer Jerry Cooke caught a trombone player hard at work, eyes dutifully fixed upon his bandleader.
