1960 OLYMPICS: CONTRIBUTIONS
Enclosed is a small contribution to the Santa Clara Valley Youth Village fund (19TH HOLE, Jan. 13), with congratulations to Father Schmidt and the Village for instituting a dynamic program to revive middle-distance running in this country.
A program of this sort could be the answer of a free-enterprise system to state-supported athletes of Communist countries.
With the help of Coach Igloi and Runner Laszlo Tabori, the Village experiment should prove that amateur runners can still hold their own in international competition.

I am very happy to learn that Tabori and Igloi have been offered a home with the Santa Clara Valley organization. Please forward this small check to further the purpose of this fine group.

TV BROADCASTS: SOUND AND FURY
Your reflections on Van Patrick's reporting of the professional football championship game were superb (E&D, Jan. 13).
That is the verbiage to which we in the Midwest are exposed every weekend of the football season if we wish to follow the exploits of our favorites, the Lions.

On behalf of Theta Deuteron chapter of Phi Gamma Delta, I wish to express thanks to you for calling Van Patrick's hand and publicly cutting his head off.
While our beloved Brownies were being cut up and devoured by the odious Lions, we of the viewing audience were succumbing to an even more horrendous end: the dreaded disease, hypergarrulosity.
We are indeed thankful for our own splendid announcer Ken Coleman.
