We here at Mississippi State greatly appreciate your coverage of the game with Auburn that was played last Saturday afternoon in Jackson, Miss. However, I would like to say that I did not take hold of Sidle's face mask.
If you will notice, the position of my fingers is down. To have had a grip on the face mask they would have had to be turned to the side. Also his helmet would be pulled over to the left side of his head, which it clearly is not. In trying to tackle him my arm went across his head. My fist was closed, and I was pulling him down, but not by his face bar. The game officials did not call a penalty on the play.

KINGS FOR A FEE
I have a new ambition: to shout "Fore!" at the King of Malaya (The East Succumbs to a Western Craze, Nov. 25). Can an ordinary tourist get to play the course Alfred Wright describes, and how much does it cost?
?The Royal Selangor Golf Club in Kuala Lumpur welcomes tourists who produce a membership card from a club at home. Greens fees are $1.70 for a day's play, caddie fees 70� for 18 holes. The Singapore Island Country Club has three 18-hole courses, and tourists can play either as guests for the day (greens fees similar to those in K.L.) or as visiting members on a weekly basis ($5). Bangkok hotels will make arrangements for play at the Royal Bangkok Sports Club. The Royal Hong Kong Golf Club in Fanling is open to visitors introduced by the Hong Kong Tourist Association or by a letter from the secretary of any reputable club. Tokyo is more tricky: arrangements must be made at least two weeks in advance through Asahi Golf Associates, Shin Otemachi Bldg., Tokyo. Greens fees are about $10, caddie fees about $1.—ED.
