    NOTES FROM AN ASSOCIATE EDITOR

    MEDIOCRITY IS FOR THE LAZY "The relationship between the soundness of the body and the activities of the mind is subtle and complex. Much is not yet understood, but we do know what the Greeks knew: That intelligence and skill can only function at the peak of their capacity when the body is healthy and strong; for physica I fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a hea Ithy body .... it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity."

    IN THIS ISSUE: The Compulsory exercises for Men for the 1968 Olympics

    appear in this issue, commencing with the U.S.G.F. Report. While additional copies are available from their office, the planning of pagination is such that by merely removing a pair of staples, the entire 4 pages of exercises are available in one piece for ready reference. The Women's Compulsories will be scheduled for MADEMOISELLE GYMNAST, volume 2, number 3.

    We' thank Art Shurlock for providing us with the transcript of the side horse routine by Voronine appeJring on pages 16 and 17. An attempt to coordinate the move identified with the pictures has been made.

    The dptails of the MG photo IArt Contest announced in the August MG are listed on our Chalk Talk page.

    Our Guest Editorial , by Irving Jaffee, Olvmpic medalist, is especially pert inent as the United States Olympic Committee begins its fundraising for the 1968 Olympics. With grassroots support perhaps his suggestions may some day become a reality.
