MAJOR GENERAL JAMES BRIGGS
General Briggs, superintendent of the Air Force Academy, kneels beside the buck he brought down in the annual one-shot antelope hunt at Lander, Wyo. Before the hunt, in which each participant is limited to a single bullet, the general was inducted into the Shoshone Indian tribe at the reservation near Lander, had his rifle blessed by the medicine man and was given the Shoshone name of Bia Quia De Gu Hau, which means "teacher of eagles."

DON ALLISON JR.
Beaming "Skipper" Allison proudly poses with his prize 725-pound catch—the largest of all the bluefin tuna taken this season at Wedgeport, Nova Scotia, including those boated during last month's International Tuna Cup match in which his father participated as a member of the U.S. team. Skipper, a student at Harvard School in North Hollywood, Calif., is a veteran fisherman at 15 and has accompanied his father on several expeditions to deep sea fishing areas around the world. He is also sports editor of his school paper and breaststroke star of the swimming team.
