I suggest a better title: Humility and How I Achieved It.

In the college football issue (Sept. 19) you listed The Alltime Top 25 Teams. The mid-western states feel that they play the top brand of college football in the country, the Alabamans feel that they have what it takes, and the Texans feel they are the nation's capital of college football. O.K. But you will notice that the state of California has four colleges listed in the Top 25—two more than any other state.

I rather suspected as I read Jeannette Bruce's SHOPWALK (Sept. 19) about sailing lessons that I should not care to risk myself in a boat with her; and when she ended, "You haven't lived until you've luffed," I was quite certain. A yachting trip with her would be ketch as ketch can every time she changed hawsers in midstream.
Sorry to send such astern letter. Actually my barque is worse than my bight.

Thank you so much for the splendid coverage you gave the 1966 Connie Mack. World Series tournament in Farmington, New Mexico (Big Victory in a Small Town, Sept. 12).
It was thrilling for me to be chosen princess to represent the Pacific Southwest region and to be crowned queen of the Series was beyond my fondest dreams.
Farmington, N. Mex.
After reading your September 12 article, I am glad that more people have finally found out about the Connie Mack tournament at Farmington. I was a member of the 1965 Connie Mack national champions, and Joe Jares' article brought back to me many, many pleasant memories of the kind and gracious citizens of Farmington.
Thanks for telling about the No. 1 tourney in America.

Your article about that wonderful town of Farmington, N. Mex. brought back many fond memories. After an auto accident two years ago I spent the first two weeks of September recovering in a hospital there. Not only was everyone in the hospital great to me, but many residents of the town, who had only read of the accident, came to say hello and visit me.
I'll always remember Farmington.
