?Walter Fondren, Texas quarterback, mourning his team's lack of power in losing to Mississippi 39-7 in the Sugar Bowl: "We couldn't bust a peanut."
? Pancho Gonzales, beaten two matches out of three by Lew Hoad in Australia: "I have to find the answer to him and find it quick. He plays the same game as I, hitting the ball hard—only he's getting it in."
?Arthur Garvais, New York member of the Sports Car Club of America, discussing rallying: "It is the true test of a prospective wife. There's a simple formula. You discount the first rally because you're both still too polite to each other. The second rally, the politeness usually has worn off and the girl's true character begins to show. If she survives the third, you may as well marry her."
?Jack Rice of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on the comforts of the Los Angeles Coliseum as a proposed nesting place for the Dodgers: "The sunshade and ice-water concessions ought to make $250,000 for the first Sunday double-header. The Coliseum is a deep and roofless concrete pit, and on a hot summer day no camel would go from first to third without stopping for a drink."
