COVER: Balloonists over Pennsylvania, Photograph by CURT GUNTHER. The sport of ballooning, here being enjoyed to its fullest by members of the Balloon Club of America, is one of the few participant sports which are in some danger of dying. The diehards in this particular instance are dangling a good 4,000 feet above the• eastern Pennsylvania town of Valley Forge, where another diehard, George Washingtoh, defled the British at about the same time the first balloonists were defying the law of gravity. For more on ballooning, past and present, turn to page 16.
