GENERAL LAURIS NORSTAD

The first Air Force man to be named the supreme commander of NATO, General Lauris Norstad is also one of the first to drop a line if there's good fishing nearby. While on an inspection tour in Norway last summer, General Norstad went trout fishing in Lake Ruosta in Lapland and, as can be seen, he did all right. The general has been an avid sportsman since his high school days in Red Wing, Minn. He is shown below as a football and basketball player (seated, second from right). Says Fred Putzier, his former coach, now the mayor of Ellsworth, Wis.: "He was a rangy, determined boy, could eat larger steaks than the other boys."
