Four In The News
The Bowls
  • A rich table featuring the best of college football is set for January 2. But the nation's televiewers will have a problem: which game to tune in on?

  • Washington, the best of the West, meets the head-on power of the nation's top team, Minnesota. The runs will be tricky, the passes fancy, but defense will win this game. CBS-TV, 4:45 p.m., E.S.T.

  • There will be plenty of hooting and hollering at New Orleans when Rice's conservative Owls match their solid ball-control game against the bright attack of Ole Miss's Rebels. NBC-TV, 1:45 p.m., E.S.T.

  • At Miami all eyes will be on a squirmy little fellow named Joe Bellino, who will lead a spirited Navy team against the powerful, tough-defending Tigers from Missouri. CBS-TV, 12:45 p.m., E.S.T.

  • Duke's sharp passing and superior running will be matched against an adamant Arkansas defense that allowed an average of less than six points a game during the regular season. CBS-TV, 3:30 p.m., E.S.T.

Next issue

As the new year begins, the spotlight is focused on the sportsman who best exemplifies the greatness of the year just past. Onstage with him are others who strove to fulfill the ancient Greek standards of arete and those who are still making news: the pro football champions, the heroes of the bowl games, the Italians and the Australians fighting it out for the Davis Cup. And, summing up all the things that sport stands for, a notable essay by Alexander Eliot on the sculptured athletes of Greece, the men who were revered like gods.
