Many times in the past I have felt the urge to compliment—or criticize—a magazine. Usually I have been able to resist that urge. This time I cannot!
Your article, Design for Sport (May 14), was magnificent. As always with your magazine, my first trip through the latest issue was completely visual. As I went through the "DFS" section I commented, "Wow, these things should be in an art gallery, not in a sporting magazine." It wasn't until later, while reading the copy, that I realized that's exactly where they were. I'm sure they were more impressive in SPORTS ILLUSTRATED'S photographs than in reality.
Do you have any plans for making Kauffman's pictures available? I would be most interested in purchasing a set.
? The Museum of Modern Art catalog, including all of Kauffman's pictures, is available at 25� a copy. Send your request to Design for Sport, Room 2001, Time and Life Building, New York 20, N.Y.—ED.
Congratulations to you on your extremely well-done piece, Challenge of Form. It's one of the best pieces on practical esthetics I have ever read.

It was not until reading your "Readers take over" section in the issue of May 21 ("If I want art, I"ll subscribe to an art magazine") that I began to realize how few people appreciate art. Every work put out by an artist involves many hours of thought and work. Your article, Design for Sport, proved it. I shall always contend that if people in this busy world would only stop their hurrying and take a good look around them, they would realize what a creative mind can achieve. Thank you for many hours of enjoyable, interesting reading.

About two or three times a year the cover and lead story of your magazine make me you'll take a million want to regurgitate. These are the issues that feature prominent boxers of the day. I, like many Americans, am an enthusiastic sports fan. Like most other fans also, the thought of a heavyweight boxing fight for the world championship has always sent a thrill of anticipation through me.
But the thought of such a bout is as close as I can come to seeing one. To my knowledge, this is the only major sporting event in this country or any other country in which the public is not allowed to participate by radio or television.
