19TH HOLE: THE READERS TAKE OVER
September 25, 1961
COURT ORDERSirs:I don't know anything about the USLTA, but I do know this guy Dennis Ralston is a spoiled brat (SCORECARD, Sept. 11). I've seen him on many occasions pull some baby act that made him top candidate for a punch in the nose.

Sirs:
You quoted American League Pitcher Barber as saying, "I wouldn't feel too bad if either [M or M] hit No. 60 off me, unless it cost me a ball game." You also added, "This is true, and Barber is the Queen of Rumania."

Well, I feel the way Barber does, so maybe I am the Queen of Rumania.

CURE FOR TV
Sirs:
John Hay did a bang-up job describing Cape Cod in A Walk on the Great Beach (Sept. 11). More stories like this will keep the TV turned off.

UGH!
Sirs:
After noting the wild words of Harry Wismer in SCORECARD (Sept. 11), I still have to challenge your entire view on the NFL vs. AFL.

We here in Los Angeles feel the wrong team left town when the Chargers went to San Diego and the Rams stayed here.

With the likes of Jack Kemp, Paul Lowe, Bo Roberson, Don Norton and others, plus a rock-ribbed defense led by Dick Harris, Earl Faison and company, the Chargers would lick many of the NFL clubs, such as the Cowboys, Vikings, Redskins and, to be sure, the Rams. Ugh!!

Sirs:
I am second to no one in Wismer-baiting, but why roll up the IBM machines to dignify a publicity gimmick?

Sirs:
I think that the New York Giants are afraid to play the Titans.

TRAPPIST
Sirs:
It was very gratifying to read your article on shotgun shooting ("Keep that Damned Kid Away from Me!" Aug. 14), a very popular sport which, incidentally, is given far too little publicity. However, I would be interested to know when Carola Mandel ever shot in a registered trap tournament. To my knowledge she has never even attended, much less won, the Grand American Trap-shooting tournaments, which are held every year in Vandalia, Ohio.
MRS. FRANK HOWARD JR.
Woodstock, Ill

? Carola Mandel has not taken part in U.S. trap tournaments mainly because of conflicting skeet schedules. She has, however, competed on numerous occasions in Olympic trap in Europe, winning, among other titles, the 1957 St. Vincent's Men's Championships in Italy, an unprecedented trap victory for a woman.—ED.
