NOTES FROM THE EDITOR: IN OUR LAST EDITORIAL,we mentioned among other things, that Gerald George our " ANY-ONE FOR ALL-AROUND" series coordinator, was busy sending out letters to coaches all over the country, to solicit instruc-tional material to pass on to the gymnastic community at large through the pages of the MG. Apparently he did not receive the response he had hoped for and is questioning the desire of our American gymnastic coaches to contribute to the national scene .. .. Which leads us to the following challenge by Dr. Gerald George.
WHERE HAVE ALL THE COACHES GONE ... ? There ' s plenty of talk questioning whether we
actually have any coaches at all . . . Most everyone under our gymnastic system is screaming for a greater number of technical articles and illustrative teaching aids ... At our regional and national gym-nastic gatherings, attention always seems to finally focus upon upgrading the levels of gymnastic con-cept. It's the age old syndrome of everybody want-ing to get to heaven, yet nobody willing to die to get there . ..
My question is, " Do we really give a dam?" Surely it isn't evidenced by the greater number of our supposed coaches. All of them want to be
., heard, yet most of them are afraid to speak . IT IS BOTH THE' DUTY AND THE RESPONSIBILITY OF KNOWLEDGEABLE PEOPLE DEDICATEDTO A FIXED PURPOSE TO COMMUNICATE TO AS MANY CON-CERNED THOSE UNDERSTANDINGS AND PRAC-TICES WHICH SERVE TO ENHANCE THE CAUSE.
We of the MG staff feel everyone has something of value to offer. Many of us can contribute signifi-cantly to the national coaching scene through MG' s ongoing series 'Anyone For All Around' . In this light, we again are asking all of the MG readers to send in articles dealing with any facet of the AII -Around . . . i .e., ' skill analyses, teaching / coaching points, illustrations, photo-sequences , special prob-lem areas, etc.
Help us help our gymnast on a national level. Submit your article to me at the address below.

"The Russians Are Coming!" The USSR will send its men 's and wom-
en's national teams to the United States for a tour early next month and Penn State is the fi rst stop on the agenda. The Soviet men will meet a team of present and former Penn State gymnasts on Saturday, February 6. The Russian women, the cur-rent world champions, will compete against the United States national team the preceding Friday, February 5.
" Uri Titov (former world champion now coach of the Soviet national team) told me they are accepting the invitation not 50 much to improve in their sport, but to see and examine the facilities and methods used in training the student gymnasts in large univers iti es," Wettstone says. " I think they are also interested in traveling through thi s country and enjoying the social aspects of such a tri p."
" The Soviet athlete today is far different than he was 1 0 years ago," Wettstone notes. "They are well-mannered individ-uals, ready and willing to assoc iate with others. Whereas they used to be aloof, now they are eager to meet people, dis-cuss politics and western ideals-although they are not completely ready or expected to agree with them."
This Penn State meet will be over with by the MG (Feb. issue) press tim e. The re-sults will be featured in the next issue (March).
