BACK TO FRANCOIS
Awk! Here we go again, but this time it's football (A Frenchman's View, Sept. 18). Back to France with you, Andr� Fran�ois!

I was horrified.
I don't know much about art, but I know what I like—and I like Andr�.
The paintings are wow.
May I ask why you persist in lousing up a perfectly good sports magazine with those juvenile paint smears. My 5-year-old can do every bit as well.
?For 46-year-old Fran�ois' reply to rival 5-year-old, see right.—ED.
Even if you don't dare to name the eleven best elevens this year, I do.
The best: Penn State (10-0), Alabama (9-1), Texas (9-1), Kansas (9-1), UCLA (9-1), Louisiana State (9-1), Michigan (8-1), Syracuse (8-2), Iowa (8-1), Ohio State (8-1), and, yes, good old Notre Dame (8-2).

Concerning "A Dip in the Odds" (SCORECARD, Sept. 18), thank Nautigal and not Puss n Boots for the thousand and second way to lose a horse race. Racing as a 3-year-old filly in 1956 at Atlantic City, Nautigal held a two-length lead coming into the stretch. Suddenly she veered, plunged into the lake and drowned.
After watching the U.S. amateurs play, I thought your article Aussies and Girls Are Best (Sept. 18) described them perfectly.
