October 02, 1961
UNDERSTANDINGSirs:The Last Race of Count Crash (Sept. 18) is a great article. From the shock of the lead sentence to the closing, almost pathetic quote from Phil Hill, this is real understanding of the sport.RICHARD L. KNUDSONMechanic Falls, Me.

BACK TO FRANCOIS
Sirs:
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!
JOHN R. WOOLSEY
Mount Vernon, Ill.

Sirs:
I was horrified.
BETTY MCLAUGHLIN
Los Angeles

Sirs:
I don't know much about art, but I know what I like—and I like Andr�.

The paintings are wow.
KARL DRAGER
Worthington, Mass.

Sirs:
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.
ART MORAN
Cincinnati

?For 46-year-old Fran�ois' reply to rival 5-year-old, see right.—ED.

THE BEST?
Sirs:
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).
BARRY E. MILLER
State College, Pa.

TRACK WET
Sirs:
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.
RUSS KERCHIS
Farmington, Conn.

BEST DESCRIPTION
Sirs:
After watching the U.S. amateurs play, I thought your article Aussies and Girls Are Best (Sept. 18) described them perfectly.
JIM WIEDER
Elkins Park, Pa.
