SUMMER CALLS EAST & WEST
Summer formally arrived last week and reminded Americans it was time to get to their favorite woods, fields and streams. Abandoning the brick and mortar of Washington, D.C., Dwight Eisenhower treated himself to a six-day swing through the rural delights of Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire. In the midst of dutiful appearances on the political hustings, Ike turned his attention to the serious business of outthinking the local trout. After an unsuccessful sortie in a Vermont stream (above, left) he moved on to the Magalloway River in Maine to battle its renowned trout and landlocked salmon (SI, June 27).
Two thousand miles away in Boulder, Colo, a couple packed their four children, horses and ample provisions into a large truck for a weekend of fishing, riding and camping in neighboring Rocky Mountain National Park (above). City-dwelling dudes three years ago, the Carroll Van Arks thus became part of that great army of Westerners who are rediscovering the joys in their nearby forests.

Bicycle machine burns up the excess weight on Ralph O'Farrell, 50, head of a detective agency. O'Farrell works hard at golf and fishing in season and devotes several hours three times a week to calisthenics and massage during the off-season.
