FRESH FROM THE COCOON
? Marshall switched from freestyle to butterfly stroke when he began training for the 1956 Olympics, and on Oct. 30 he won the Australian 200-meter trials in this event.—ED.
?The Olympic motto is: Citius, Altius, Fortius (quicker, higher, more strongly) and epitomizes the desires of competitors, although the Olympic Games are more often characterized by Baron de Coubertin's stated philosophy, "The important thing in the Olympic Games is not winning but taking part...."—ED.
? SPORTS ILLUSTRATED applauds the sportsmanship of Graham, a good vaulter, who voluntarily withdrew in favor of Gutowski, a better one. We also applaud the one-two finish of Richards and Gutowski at Melbourne, although neither topped 15 feet.—ED.
?Wow! indeed. But Miss Bell should be more specific. There are 277 males on the U.S. Olympic squad alone. Anyone in particular?—ED.
The Olympics, furthermore, are not " America (the U.S.) against the world," as you said. Please do not be poisoned by the appalling attitude of Americans toward the rest of the world. We sincerely hope this attitude does not affect American athletes and/or those who remark upon their able performances.
