  • Before the draft last spring pro scouts noted the absence of Wests, Russells and Robertsons, and declared this the worst rookie class in years. But for one reason or another—retirement, military service, even police action—nearly every NBA club is going to make good use of its newcomers. Rookies should make the Warriors a playoff team again, a rookie may change both the style and morale of the Bullets and a particularly bright one may help the Lakers to the title

Football's Week
  • Arkansas survived and so, by handsome margins, did Nebraska and Michigan State. But where a week before there were 18 unbeaten and untied major teams, now at midseason there were only eight. Gone, among others, were game little Georgia and a fumbling Duke. Gone more ignominiously were West Virginia, Mississippi State and Texas Western. But Tennessee (next page) was a pleasant—and lucky—surprise. Purdue with Bob Griese to its credit and a tie to its discredit, won another close one, and once-tied USC, riding the mercurial legs of Mike Garrett, downed once-tied Stanford in the big Coast game

CHAPS AND GIRLS AFIELD

For years the American girl gunner had to poach on the men's sporting-goods shops for her shooting clothes, and she often ended up looking like Annie Oakley. This fall, however, women's field clothes have a new zip, with no loss at all in function. Three of the best outfits, one imported from France, two from the U.S., are worn here by young Palm Beach sportswomen at the start of the quail season at the Bonnette Hunting Preserve in Jupiter, Fla.

Mrs. Elizabeth Mower's hunting outfit (left), imported from France, is of cotton duck. The jacket is rimmed by 32 shells. Over matching pants she wears rubber-faced chaps for protection in wet grass.

June Douglas, a former Powder Puff Derby winner, shoots in a canvas jacket with many pockets and the shape of an Army field jacket. It is of strong Avril-and-cotton canvas and has a fold-back hood.

Mrs. H. Loy Anderson Jr.'s side-zipped shooting skirt is made of the same kind of reversed cowhide used in cowboy chaps. She wears it with a silk jersey turtleneck, a straw bush hat and a leather shell belt.

WHERE TO BUY
The outfit worn by Elizabeth Mower opposite was designed by Victoire of Paris. It comes in green or light brown and is $100. The canvas jacket worn by June Douglas at the left is by Willis and Geiger. It has six pockets and nylon-lined game pouches. It is $40. Both outfits are available at Abercrombie & Fitch, New York. Molly Anderson's cowhide skirt (above) is $55 at Miller's Harness Co., New York. Her snake-proof boots are Gokey's Botte Sauvage.
