?Long before Vol. I, No. 1 of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED was published it was set forth in a working prospectus that "the most cursory look reveals that dressing for sports, watching or participating, is important. This will be the concern of the SPORTING LOOK department." The SPORTING LOOK story which is referred to in the letters above is The Quarterly Sporting Look Preview for spring which appeared in the March 9 issue. Each quarter—spring, summer, fall and winter—SPORTS ILLUSTRATED'S SPORTING LOOK department will make a thorough survey of designers, manufacturers and retailers of sports clothing for men and women and select in advance of the season those items of apparel that are new and choice so that SPORTS ILLUSTRATED readers will have an exclusive preview of the upcoming season.
Messrs. Smith, Norman and the scores of others who have written to us for where-to-buy information will hear from us by mail.—ED.
NOTRE DAME: SPIRIT AND BALANCE
SET 'EM UP
At least half the fun of baseball is second-guessing the manager, and as for worrying about the Mayses and Mantles being inhibited by their managers—that is hogwash.
Every ball team has at least one and usually two power hitters who never do anything but hit away. The manager's function is to move the other seven men around as efficiently as possible.
This is basic baseball, and you guys know it. However, tongue in cheek, you sure stirred up a controversy.
ON TO HOLMENKOLLEN
The young ski jumper Gene Kotlarek, pictured in your magazine, is a full-blooded Minnesotan from Duluth and not a Michigan youngster as stated in your article. Also, Gene wasn't only "every bit as impressive in flight" as Karkinen—he was better! His second jump in style and distance points together was the best leap of the tournament. Gene and six other youngsters of the Duluth Ski Club were sent on a 5,000-mile ski competition tour, expenses for which were covered by contributions of local ski enthusiasts. After Gene's outstanding performances a spirited group of American skiers, led by George Hovland Jr., initiated a drive to raise money for Gene's trip to the coveted Holmenkollen tournament in Norway (SI, March 11, '57). Necessary funds were raised within a day, and Gene is presently in Norway competing and gaining valuable experience for the 1960 Olympic Games.
