Next week

Floyd Patterson tells his story. In the first of three articles from his autobiography, he describes his progress from frightened boyhood to victory in the Olympics in Helsinki.

The fastest Indy and its newest cars and drivers are previewed, with five pages of striking paintings by Bernard Fuchs that show the color and drama of the famed 500-mile race.

Two big races of the week-are the Preakness and The Messenger. Whitney Tower reports from Pimlico, Kenneth Rudeen from Roosevelt Raceway on trotting's richest dash.
