IT IS WITH A SPECIAL PRIDE THIS MONTH that we offer our fourth annual Ultimate Fitness section (page 113), conceived by Contributing Editor George Leonard and produced with the help of Senior Editor Lisa Bain. What has us so pumped up is Leonard’s theme: that only through the mastery of an activity can we really find its full meaning and benefit, be it a sport or some other activity.

RE: "CITIZEN UEBERROTH,” BY RICHARD BEN CRAMER, February. Who appointed Peter Ueberroth God? Baseball commissioners are hired to deal with owners, players, fans, hot dogs, and, unfortunately, drug problems. However, the job isn’t a ticket to become the President’s adviser on drug abuse.

A poor craftsman blames his tools, the old saying goes. And if you don’t believe it, just spend ten minutes with a golfer. Not just any golfer, to be sure, but one who plays at least twenty-five rounds a year, thereby earning official designation by the National Golf Foundation as "Avid."

John Berendt
Until there were sneakers, which means until about 1917, a person’s footsteps always made a click or a clomp or a tap or a squeak. Before sneakers, the quietest shoes you could wear were Indian moccasins or Eskimo mukluks, but even they produced a muted thud on impact.

Geoffrey Norman
Of the hundreds of plots we devise each summer to get out of mowing the lawn, none is as permanent or as satisfying as the idea of building a pond. Sure, it’ll take some initial time and money. But consider the payoffs: you’ll give local wildlife a good excuse to drop by, and provide refuge for ducks and geese that are passing through town.

The perfect moment happens late the second afternoon. The first day was license buying, company sorting, gear rigging, antelope sighting, and mosquito swatting at the put-in. Then an easy glide along the upper-meadow stretches of Montana’s Smith River, where the flow still doubles back on itself and never lets on about the canyon coming.

As a good dinner winds to its close, two challenges present themselves: one is paying the check; the other is choosing an after-dinner drink. The check, however inflated, at least has the merit of being unambiguous. Not so the parting shot.

May is the month when trout fishing gets off to a proper start in our northern hemisphere—the time of lush mayfly hatches that bring fish to the surface with reckless abandon. Assuming that it doesn’t snow or the river rise in flood, and your waders don’t leak, that annual ritual of true ichthyophiles is at hand.

<p>A FEW YEARS AGO&mdash;CHRISTMAS 1979, to be exact&mdash;The Chicago Tribune’s Book World asked me and a number of other worthies (Nelson Algren and Truman Capote, for openers) what books we would give for Christmas presents. Now I don’t give Christmas presents; my wife and I have been married for more years than I care to remember, and we have never exchanged presents, not for Christmas, not for birthdays, not for anniversaries&mdash;no organized holiday giving.</p>

Donald R. Katz
On most evenings I&rsquo;d rather listen to two bankers discuss the relative elasticity of the money supply than hear two wine collectors talk of their fermented passion, going on, as they do, as if wine had body, personality, and a mortal soul. But on a recent evening I had occasion to think about fine wine, when, in celebration of a particularly lucrative year, a friend uncorked two magnums of deeply affecting Ch&acirc;teau Lafite-Rothschild 1961, and did so without the usual pretentious commentary and in good cheer.

Lawrence Gallagher
One reason you don&rsquo;t see too many new row houses being built is that there is nowhere to put them. Suitable land in a desirable neighborhood is not easy to find. A local physician and his wife managed to secure this lot in Presidio Heights, but it was five feet wider than the standard San Francisco lot.

Just because a guy is issued the proper equipment doesn&rsquo;t mean he knows what to do with it.

He&rsquo;s nothing much in person, but with a deft gray touch, he works a telephone the way the Ayatollah worked Ollie North.

Peter D. Lawrence
A homeowners policy is a dandy package of protection. In fact, so many of life&rsquo;s most common misfortunes are potentially covered that it&rsquo;s possible to be lulled into a sense of false security. But as good as the standard homeowners policy may be&mdash;and unless you&rsquo;re a hobo, you can&rsquo;t afford to be without one&mdash;and as extensive as the coverage may appear, there are limits to the protection it offers.

It wasn&rsquo;t until last year that we really saw Barbara Hershey. Why did she suddenly seem grown up? Maybe it was the sense of satisfaction we got in seeing an old friend come into her own. Maybe it was the promise of mature abandon she offered in that mohair sweater, the one that touched a match to Michael Caine&rsquo;s midlife crisis.

SOME ACTS OF CREATION GO ON LONGER than acts of Eugene O&rsquo;Neill. Artists, though they may like to think of themselves as gods, can&rsquo;t always adhere to the divine time schedule: six days to crank it out, then Sunday with the feet up. So there are in the land of the Muses perpetual &ldquo;works in progress,&rdquo; stretching from inspiration to infinity&mdash;or from &ldquo;Let there be light&rdquo; to some sort of brownout, whether it&rsquo;s artistic, logistic, or financial.

<p>DREW LIKED TO THINK THAT THE TIDE had begun to turn in the Philippines the day he personally turned against President Marcos. This happened only a few weeks before the Philippine election, when Drew noticed that a delegation of editors from The New York Times had gone to Manila and become disgruntled with the Marcos regime.</p>

The art of mastery in sport and life

It resists definition, yet can be instantly recognized. It comes in many varieties, yet follows certain unchanging laws. It makes us, in the words of the Olympic motto, &ldquo;Faster, higher, and stronger,&rdquo; yet is not really a goal or a destination but rather a process, a journey.

The Keys to Mastery
It may seem mysterious and unattainable, but knowing the basic principles of mastery can bring it within your reach

JOHN POPPY
The closer you are to a sport, the more you value a good coach. Take running, for example. This most natural of all exercises would seem to require little skill beyond the ability to pull on shorts and shoes and start off. A semiserious runner, going for conditioning with no attempt to play any sort of edge, can get away with reading up on the basics of scheduling, stretching, and equipment&mdash;and then watch out for himself.

Secrets of the Masters
It’s not just technique that makes these athletes extraordinary—it’s the attitude and commitment they bring to their performance

JOE FLOWER
What is the secret of mastery? Ask someone who knows. We sought out twelve athletes who would be considered supreme masters of their craft by their peers. We talked to everyone from cyclists and golfers to gymnasts and triathletes. What they had to say about mastery was at first glance surprising for its consistency.

Pitfalls Along the Path
It’s easier to get on the path of mastery than to stay on it. The most dedicated traveler will find pitfalls as well as rewards along the way. You might not be able to avoid all of but it helps to know they’re there

GEORGE LEONARD
Conflicting life-style: The professional athlete can major in mastery, but most of us have to weigh sports participation against a paying job and other obligations, especially those involving the immediate family. The trick here is to be realistic. If you can&rsquo;t do your sport at least three times a week&mdash;two as an absolute minimum&mdash;you shouldn&rsquo;t take it up.

GEORGE LEONARD
Sports clarify things. Within the magic circle of time and place where the game is played, we can see what works and what doesn&rsquo;t. Neither smooth talk nor charm, nor a rich father, will get you a 2:10 marathon or a round of sub-par golf. There are many ways to move toward mastery in a sport, but all of them, it turns out, involve certain principles.

The Athlete's New Clothes
Most familiar rules of men’s dressing fall by the wayside when sports are involved: form gives way to function. The clothes on these pages, chosen for the rigorous events of a triathlon, happen to look pretty snappy. But what’s far more important is how they feel and how they can help you perform

TIME BROUGHT AGE SIXTY TO ME ON JULY 24, 1986, in New York City, where I have lived most of my life. I was expecting it; indeed, faster and faster as I left my mid-fifties, time seemed to be rushing toward me with proof of my nativity, the only credential you need to join the senior class.

From the start, their goal was to escape the bop in bebop, the crutch of pop music, the safety of the solo riff. Their sound was filled with the audacity of classical themes and the danger of shared improvisations. Their sound was heard and understood even though it spoke in a language it had to teach.
