?The right hand didn't know what the left hand was doing—to the picture, that is.—ED.
I'd sure like to see this cooky calling balls and strikes behind the plate. Come to think of it—I think I have.

EXCELLENT STORY BY FURLONG ON FULLMER-FERNANDEZ FIGHT (A Losing Look in a Winning Fight, Aug. 14), BUT ISN'T ONE OF THE BASIC RULES OF GOOD JOURNALISM TO TELL "WHERE"? WHAT HAPPENED TO OGDEN, UTAH?

MANAGER, CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
Herb had all the greatness of a Walter Johnson and a Dizzy Dean until that unfortunate incident tarnished his quest for equal recognition (The Private Ordeal of Herb Score, Aug. 7). You have paid great tribute to a gracious young ballplayer who by all means should be embittered against the very art that he served so well.
Key West, Fla.
Watched one of the better ball games of my life last night (Aug. 2)—Herb Score went all the way against Spokane, 7-2. There were no hits off Score until the seventh. The total: 6 strikeouts, 4 hits, 3 walks.
Was Herb wild? No, but the fans were.

In his article on Herb Score, Jack Olsen referred to the "all-purpose four-letter words" being used "whenever soldiers and ballplayers get together in their underclothes." I have just completed a tour of duty with the U.S. Army as an officer, and I also was a varsity athlete at the University of Pittsburgh for three years. I feel your statement casts a distasteful light on both soldiers and athletes, which would include myself in both cases.
It's a darn shame you stooped so low.

Your park ranger, Don Moser, underestimates the capabilities of the camera to capture the scene (Ah, Wilderness! Your Joys Are Wasted, Aug. 7). I treasure my movies of the parks more than any incidental facts provided by rangers.

Don Moser has the American Place Collector well-pegged. As a ranger at the entrance to Sequoia National Park, I notice an increasing number of visitors who ask, "How long does it take?" Partly to blame for this are scheduled vacations. The automobile clubs and oil companies furnish maps to their customers with little green lines drawn through as many points of interest as possible. Consequently the tourist doesn't have time to visit Crescent Meadow, Moro Rock or Crystal Cave because he is "behind schedule" and still has to drive through Yosemite in the afternoon.
