TOP OF THE WEEK:
COVER: THE GAMBLING BOOM: Time was when the average gambler was a furtive fellow who existed pretty much outside the pale. No longer. Now almost everyone seems to be taking the plunge-- none more enthusiastically than middle- and upper-middle-class America. The new gamblers bet on Axthelm at the OTB anything--baseball, football, basketball, state lotteries, horse races and roulette wheels. Gambling now produces a yearly handle of $50 billion--which makes it not only big business but a growing magnet for state and city governments seeking a piece of the action. Newsweek Sports editor Pete Axthelm chronicles the multifaceted phenomenon.

THE GROCERIES ISSUE: The hottest topic in Washington last week was the price of a bag of groceries. The supermarket, in fact, may figure as a key arena for the coming Presidential campaign. With files from James Bishop Jr., Tom Joyce, Rich Thomas and other correspondents in Washington and around the U.S., General Editor Christopher S. Wren analyzes the ' political ramifications of the increasing cost-of-living furor, while Associate Editor David M. Alpern offers a primer on the reason, from farmer to consumer, why meat and other food prices are so high.
MUNICH GETS READY: With the frenzy of a housewife getting ready for company, the gemutlich city of Munich is preparing to play host to this year's Summer Olympics.

From Munich, correspondent John Dornberg sent a progress report on the most expensive Olympics ever. Associate Editor Daniel Chu wrote the story.
THE OVERSEAS CLOUT OF U.S. COMPANIES: Recent charges that ITT conspired to block the election of Chile's Marxist President have raised eyebrows over the way America's multinational corporations conduct themselves in host countries. Yet the lne between impropriety and legitimate self-interest is a thin one. With files from Newsweek correspondents around the world, Associate Editor Michael Ruby examines how the big multinational businesses swing their weight abroad.
THE OLD WEST ANEW: The most adventurous breed of artists were the men like George Catlin and Frederic Remington who went west in the great frontier expansion of the early nineteenth century.
