MEMO FROM THE PUBLISHER
Harry Phillips
December 10, 1956
Each week brings its welcome share of visitors to the offices of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED. One recent week, for instance, included calls by Decathlon Champion Bob Mathias, en route to Melbourne as President Eisenhower's official representative at the Olympic Games; Harold S. Vanderbilt, shaking his head over the new attention from his four-part piece in this magazine; Ruth Gissy, our Aug. 27 cover girl (still in riding costume) with her mother and doctor father straight from the Madison Square Garden Horse Show; and Chuck Conerly, the New York Giants' quarterback on our cover last week.
