We here in New Mexico have long been telling everybody that this is the best team in the nation (The Team the Pros Watch, Nov. 7), but we could get only our defeated opponents to listen and agree.
There should, however, have been some mention of our giant end, big Bob Kelly, the man who catches many of Charley Johnson's passes.

One of the best football stories I have ever read! Being an old Easterner, I had never heard of New Mexico State before.

It may be true, if one concedes that Staten Island is outside the continental limits, that New Mexico State's Charley Johnson "leads the nation" in touchdown passes with nine.
Then it is equally true that Wagner's Don Cavalli leads the world. Cavalli hurled 13 touchdown passes in his first six games.

WOMEN AT WAR
Katherine Carlson should receive some type of literary award for her article on sports, husbands and TV (Women's War to Save Sports, Nov. 7).
It is an art to make so much truth come out so amusing.
CHARLES F. BARNES
Speak for yourself, Mrs. Carlson. Try a little straightforwardness (good sportsmanship mebbe?). This will in itself create cooperation and it won't be necessary to "use dynamite." Me, I'd do the same as your husband if anyone tried to dynamite me. In fact, I'd probably send you to the game so I could enjoy the TV myself.

ROOM FOR TIGERS?
Congratulations for an amazingly accurate and unbiased article on the college football national rankings (Less Room at the Top, Nov. 7).
Incidentally, who is to say the nine eligible Big Ten teams couldn't be rated the top nine in the country, since the only games they've lost have been to each other?
