Re Kansas City's World Champion Fresh-water Fisherman Harold Ensley (FACES IN THE CROWD, NOV. 14). I know a lot of people look like Harry Truman—but this is ridiculous! (See below.)

Where can I purchase the fourth edition of The Guinness Book of Records, a " Matterhorn of minutiae, now on sale" (SCORECARD, NOV. 14)?

If Jack Kramer now succeeds, as you suggest, in making all the so-called amateurs honest (Open Tennis Openly Arrived At, EDITORIALS, NOV. 14), he will not be doing much to help the cause of open tennis.
Who will be left of the amateur stars to oppose Kramer's professionals in the opens when they come?

Hurrah for Stanley Walker (Down with Gourmets, Nov. 7)! Anyone for pot roast?
MRS. GEORGE L. FREDRICKS
From the very beginning, I had a premonition that as the crowning glory of true-blue, down-to-earth American cooking Mr. Walker was going to wind up with sowbelly, 'lasses and biscuits. Southern cooking, with its grease and grits, is by far the most overrated cookery in these United States.

Stanley Walker is remembered as the brilliant city editor of the New York Herald Tribune who resigned at the height of his editorial powers to flee the decadent environs of New York for the plains and fancies of Texas. He has been there for years, now, yet his rebellion seems not to have been assuaged by the blue bonnets, the northers or the Cadillacs. Writing for SPORTS ILLUSTRATED recently his spleen seems to have come completely unstopped.
Perhaps the hot, dry air of Texas is not the best antidote for anger. At any rate to get his solitary crusade in motion, Stanley sets up a Texas windmill, then has at it, at the gallop.
