Big Bromley
Ford's Plunge
Perfect Defense
  • When Detroit and Green Bay meet, the two best defenses in professional football will be opposed, but the Packer unit—a clever blend of daring and conservative players—is the less penetrable of the two. Coach Vince Lombardi made it that way, and if Nick Pietrosante and the other Lions are to win their Thanksgiving Day game, they will do so only by splitting Green Bay personalities

Next week

The generalissimo of the Chinese Bandits, Paul Dietzel of Army, now goes up against Navy's tricky Wayne Hardin. An incisive portrait of Dietzel and a preview of the big game.

The windiest fighters in the game, Cassius Clay and Archie Moore, meet in Los Angeles to settle the incidental matter of which one is better with his fists. Gilbert Rogin reports.

Nassau speed weeks produce a collection of characters who are as much fun as the cars. Artist Marc Simont finds the scene a sporty one, and gives it the brush—his very best one.
