COVER: FORD's Fabulous Flivver. Cover by Don Silverstein.

THIS MONTH'S HIGHLIGHTS: In 1908 and for years afterward Henry Ford's Model T ruled the road. It looked, as one longago observer put it, "like an abbreviated coffin followed by a park bench." It sounded, as author Lyman Nash recalls, "noisier than a canning factory with St. Vitus's Dance." But it caught America's fancy because it could outlast and outspeed old Dobbin, and more often than not got you where you wanted to go. The story, with zany illustrations by Don Silverstein, begins on page 19. . . . In the Wind River country of Wyoming a struggle for grass takes place between Titus Selkirk, a money-grubbing sheepman, and Wapiti Pete, a huge elk. It is a story about which of the two will become King of Squaw Mountain. The author: Hal Borland. . . . Everyone in Spokane, Wash., is talking about Gerry Lindgren because that's where he comes from and that's where he did his early running. Whether it's a mile or a 25-mile run, this high-schooler can outspeed most of the competition. Find out about this five-foot-five, 117-pound speedball on page 23. . . . You wouldn't think that anyone with a name like Feary Trembleshake could be brave and powerful. But he is. He's the hero of a puppet play, How to Muscle In, that we think our Cub Scouts will get a kick out of. And if you've never made your own puppets, you'll find out how beginning on page 43. . . . For those of you who were caught up in the excitement of Gull #737, part three -- the conclusion -- awaits you on page 26. . .. G. Keith Funston, president of the New York Stock Exchange, knows what makes Amer- ican business tick. For our readers who are won- dering and hoping about future careers, his words are worth listening to. Business, My Way of Life is his story. It's on page 29. Gerry Lindgren (above) is a teen-age track sensation -- one of this country's top runners.
