I am glad to see that someone else in this world is smart enough to see the dangers of such a sale. To say there is no difference between Mickey Mantle and Jackie Gleason is to say that there is no difference between the population of New York and Ridotto, Iowa (pop. 6).

Sirs:
Your magazine has done much good for boxing, and now your position on the Yankee- CBS deal could save baseball. Any competent U.S. Representative or Senator who may aspire to national recognition could get it by investigating this deal.

Personally, I have supported the Twins since they arrived here. But now I don't believe I can anymore, because Calvin Griffith, president of the Twins, didn't vote against CBS. I will not support those who are selling out the American League.

JACK IN THE PULPIT
Sirs:
Sounds and Hounds of a Texas Wolf Hunt (Sept. 14) was fine, but talk about puns! "The family that preys together stays together," indeed!

I picture Jack Olsen strutting around your halls, his thumbs hooked in his suspenders, taking bows.

HEART PROGRAM
Sirs:
I enjoyed your September 21 article, A Leg Up on a Good Heart. My pupils in the sixth grade are simply amazed at the type of workout Dr. Thomas K. Cureton of the University of Illinois conducted at the health conference in Burlington, Vt.

Sirs:
As you know, lack of exercise may well be the cause of coronary artery disease. Baltimore and Washington now have programs to help the middle-aged man exercise.

In August we in Baltimore decided to see if the citizens would respond to exercise of this type. We held a three-race program consisting of a 10-mile race for the best runners in the area, a 2�-mile teen-age race and a 2�-mile "Run for Your Life."

Forty-two runners ranging in age from 10 to 67 years old entered. Every starter finished the race, and we had the largest crowd watching a distance race in many a year—400 people.
