Carol Heiss of Ozone Park, N.Y. is a beguiling little blonde who also happens to be one of the finest female figure skaters in the world. However, she won't be satisfied until she knows she is the very best (p. 17). This month, at the World Championships in Vienna, she will go after the biggest prize of all; but before she gets it, she will have to beat another pretty and talented American, Tenley Albright of Boston (p. 28).
