Coinciding in years with the International Olympics, the Wheelchair Games were held from 1952 to 1960 in England but in 1960 and 1964 they were conducted alongside the Olympics. this year, however, the Mexican government announced it could not host the W heel-chair Olympics and Israel immediately offered its services to handle the games. The site of the games is the Hand Sports Center and the Municipal Stadium in Ramat Gan. Visitors representing 30 nations participate. Competition for wheelchair athletes is in basketball, swimming, fencing, weightlilting. tabic tennis, bowling, snooker and archery.

Nguyen Ngoc Loan's execution of a Viet Cong officer, captured during terrorist attacks on Saigon. Taken by Associated Press photographer Edward T. Adams, it appears in Camera Annual 1969. By lUVINCJ DF.SFOR At' NewufcMtures As Ihe turbulent year of 1968 approaches its end, two photographic annuals are already on hand with their selection of "the world's finest" or noteworthy pictures. Though the titles say: "Photography Annual 1969" and "U.S. Camera Annual 1969," their early printing schedules prevent use of any significant pictures made in the last three months of 1968. Through the years, however, photo-minded Americans have turned to these domestic annuals as the only visual summing up of photographic trends, personalities, portfolios and nudes as compiled by the editors of Popular Photography and U.S. Camera's Tom Maloney, respectively. Both annuals are priced at $1.50. A study of Photography Annual reveals this year's "in" trend is with double exposure or multiple images through sandwiching negatives together for printing. About two dozen examples are scattered through the book and some of them look like mistakes that photographers used to throw away as unfortunate accidents. Now they are contrived, labored over and published as avante-garde photography. In previous years, there have been trends in Blur and Motion. Coarse Grain. Distorted Nudes and Fisheye photography. In each case, there are many examples of outstanding artistic and technical merit. Proliferation, however, tends to dilute the shock value of the original idea. Two tiny groups of Vietnam and Protest U.S.A. pictures are the only links between Photography Annual 1969 and photography "telling it like it is" in the past year.

Steichen, on receiving the White House Press Photographers Achievement Award, said: "Whenever I'm introduced as the dean of photographers, they mean, "Is that old buzzard still around?" That I am. But I'm also watching a wonderful, living body called photography, which I'm proud to honor as it has honored me. It's a great part of you. of me and the nation." Besides a sense of humor, Steichen had a practical suggestion when he said, "Put photography to work it furnishes its own rewards." All in all, the photography annuals are well worth browsing through. Some of the pic-tun's will recall the year's tragic events; others will in form or inspire and several will provoke you into wondering why if was published al all. If you're provoked enough, perhaps you'll be spurred into printing some of your best el forts and submitting them for next year's annuals That's a good way to put photography to work for yourself.
