Next week

Floyd Patterson defends his title against Ingemar Johansson this Monday. Unless the fight is postponed, it will be reported in depth, with pictures, in next week's issue.

The shadowy world of the traveling pool hustlers, where slick, fast-talking cue artists shrewdly prey on the pride and the greed of easy marks, is explored by Jack Olsen.

Falling through the air at 120 mph, Sky Diver Lew Sanborn meets a friend, Lynn Pyland, passes him a baton and simultaneously snaps a sequence of color photographs.
