Derrick --- I found a copy of the article at 
http://www.hamradio-online.com/1996/jan/hams.html  --- The web page is kind of 
cluttered, but the entire article is there --- you sometimes have to scroll 
down through 'sidebar' material though.

The title "Battle of the Hams" by Bill Leonard, and was printed in Sports 
IllustratedI in 1958.  Despite it's age, the information is remarkably current 
(cheeze, we've hardly changed in 50 years!) and explains contesting in a very 
favorable light.

73, de Hans, K0HB
