THE MANY MOODS OF SUMMER
A solitary angler, caught by the camera shrouded in morning mists on a rocky promontory off Montauk Point, N.Y., finds his own challenges and his own triumphs in the lonely sport he loves best. Like that of millions who, alone or in company, find the fullest measure of themselves in the outdoors, his preoccupation sets but one of...
Anticipation of triumph lights the faces of teen-age tennis players Jacqueline Tegland, Sally Moore, Mary Ann Mitchell, Owen McHaney, Sandra Loubat, Patricia Shaffer and Gwyn Thomas as the Junior Wightman cupsters with nonplaying Captain Marilynn McRae (left, center) face camera—and the future—with charm and confidence.
A funereal gloom pervades the golf course at France's sunny Deauville in still another aspect of summer's shimmering moods. Nobody has died; the République has not yet fallen. It is only that one tournament golfer lost his ball, and the French gallery, reacting to their hero's every thought, decided as one man to help him locate the elusive pellet.

HORSY SET HIGHJINKS
Once each year the horsy set of what Publisher Bertie McCormick used to call Chicagoland forget their dignity and their dividends long enough to gambol and gamble through a daylong gymkhana of equestrian edification that includes everything from a hunt breakfast at the swank Ambassador East Hotel to a donkey derby in the fashionable local exurbia. The occasion is the annual running of the $4,000 Hurdle Stakes for 4-year-olds and up at Arlington Park race track, but the race itself is only an incident.
Caught here by the camera are the various and variegated aspects of a day of play that began the evening before as the gentry labored to equip the Arlington track's flat course with steeplechase hazards in a reasonable facsimile of Aintree. A fleet of elegant horse-drawn rigs and turnouts was on hand next morning to carry the Mid westerners and their guests to breakfast at the Ambassador's Pump Room. Then it was on to Arlington for luncheon, the race and a fashion show. Last, but far from least, there was a buffet supper at Oak Knoll, the vast 120-acre home of the S. L. Reinhardts in Barrington and, of course, a donkey race in funny costumes.
