TOUGH JUNIORS

Rugged training and long hours are paying off with a generation of new skiers who will be hard to beat

The handsome young men and women shown on this and the following pages represent a solid investment in the skiing future of the U.S. Literally reared on the slopes where they are now making names for themselves, they have been brought along under the kind of rigorous regimen that ultimately won world championships for skaters of a decade earlier. Minnesota's Clyde Brodt (below), California's Starr Walton and a raft of other juniors, already as good as most seniors, will be tough to beat come the 1960 Olympics.
