MRS. ANNE ARCHBOLD
Mrs. Anne Archbold of Washington is well over 80, but age has only whetted her passion for light tackle, deep-sea fishing. Mrs. Archbold, who shot elephants, rhinos, giraffes and leopards in her younger days, took up fishing seriously five or six years ago. Fishing winters in the Bahamas, she has set world records with a 30½-pound dolphin and a 52-pound wahoo, both on 20-pound test line, and a 60-pound wahoo taken on 30-pound test line. Recently she boated a 55½-pound wahoo on 15-pound line to tie another mark.

THE CAMPBELLS
The four Campbell brothers (from left Garnet, 28, Don, 33, Glen, 37, and Lloyd, 40) are wheat farmers from the Saskatchewan hamlet of Avonlea. They also constitute the best curling rink in all of Canada. This year the Campbells swept aside the other 10 provincial teams to win the Briar Tankard, emblematic of Canadian curling supremacy, for Saskatchewan for the first time. Then, "skipped," or directed, by Garnet, the Campbells went on to beat Hibbing, Minn.—U.S. champion—for the North American title.
