This is our special holiday issue, a double magazine for Christmas. It offers, as the nation awaits a new President, a perceptive look at the coming years and what may be asked of sport in American society. It relives some great moments of the Olympic year just past and delves into the colorful and timeless world of children's games. It presents the 1960 Silver Anniversary awards and the bowl game previews. Finally, it reports on a challenging and critical question for sportsmen everywhere: the issue of Pay TV.
