Since I am not a blonde, I could not qualify for Golden Girl, but I am a B-average political science major, date a Boilermaker, do the jerk and live on a farm. I am proud of it and of Purdue.

Sirs:
Speaking of the jerk, I think Dan Jenkins should receive the All-American Jerk-of-the-Week Award. I'll bet he can't even chew gum, let alone "chew gum and walk at the same time."
TOM REHM
West Lafayette, Ind.

Sirs:
A campus of dull-red brick buildings? Dan Jenkins should have stuck around for the Victory Varieties after the game and seen our 6,000-plus-seat Hall of Music with the perfect acoustics, set off at night by a lighted fountain near the entrance.

He should have tried a tour of the marble-walled, spacious Memorial Center with its libraries, art work, auditoriums and theaters. He missed the modern new Krannert Building and the Graduate House housing boys and girls under the same roof. How's that for "cooled out"?

At old Purdue, it's first class all the way. Our kids are schooled as well as cooled. I'm proud just being the town half of this town-and-gown community.

Darn it though, I did miss the Golden Girl. Even us hay shakers go for that.

Sirs:
That Saturday, Purdue engineered an end to Ara's era at Notre Dame, and that was no social mistake!
JAMES DAYTON
West Lafayette, Ind.

Sirs:
In 1899 I was a quarterback on Purdue's varsity. Since then I have followed the team—always trusting each year that we would have a team that would top them all.

As a subscriber to your magazine ever since it was first published I have sometimes thought your eastern sportswriters could not see over the Alleghenies, but now, after reading Oh, That Griese Kid Stuff! I'll never have another such critical thought. Dan Jenkins should have a medal for his well-written and accurate account of the game.

SHARK BAIT
Sirs:
Coles Phinizy's article about Dr. Eugenie Clark and her "fish friends" was fascinating (Lady with a Fishy Reputation, Oct. 4). I don't believe she will ever have to worry about sharks. She is so pretty they would just swim around her in pure admiration.
