Sam Fox, now 41, onetime Ohio State end who also played for the New York Giants and probably holds the NFL record, if there is one, for catching the shortest touchdown pass—four inches. He will be a corps representative in the Near East, possibly Turkey.
John Hohl, 37, of Pitman, N.J., who used to be a professional hunter in British East Africa and Kenya. He will serve as field representative on a team building roads in Tanganyika.
Bob Bates, 51, ski coach at Phillips Exeter Academy, who led two expeditions that tried to climb 28,250-foot K-2 in Pakistan. He will be representative on a Nepalese vocational teaching team.
Robert Poole, 30, football and baseball coach at Taft Prep, who was a Yale halfback, Rugby player and middleweight boxing champion. He is assigned to an Ethiopian teaching project as field representative.
Right now the corps is looking for fishing experts to develop commercial fishing in Venezuela, Togo and Sierra Leone. The latter two areas also need someone to teach them how to keep outboard motors in repair. But no eggheads, please.
THE INSIDE TRACK
? Brookmeade Stable, left ownerless when Isabel Dodge Sloane died March 9, will be sold this summer. If executors of Mrs. Sloane's estate do not accept a package-deal bid, of which three have already come in (one for a flat $3 million), the entire racing and breeding stock, together with the Upperville, Va. farm, will go before public auction.
? Cuba will participate in the Caribbean Games. Expect an all-out bid by Castro's athletes to sweep up gold medals the way Russia does in the Olympics.
? Frank Gifford, who suffered severe head injuries in 1960, has received medical clearance and will play next season for the New York Giants, but as a flanker back or flanker end, not as a running back.
?Prospects that Peter Snell of New Zealand and Jim Beatty of the U.S. will meet in the mile improved somewhat when Snell last week canceled a European tour in order to run in Los Angeles on May 16, in the Modesto Relays May 26 and, possibly, the Compton Relays meet on June 1.
