AMERICA'S HERITAGE
Sirs:
Having reported the efforts of Humble Oil in the service of conservation (SCORECARD, June 5), you may be interested to know the current status of Sinclair's continuing efforts in this area.

We are publishing a series of advertisements this year to focus attention on the successful activities of private citizens and groups in the service of conservation and to encourage similar efforts. Through a folder offered in the advertisements we try to put interested people in touch with groups able to help them. The response to the ads has been outstanding.

Sinclair's program is part of an effort carried out over the last 12 years to make people aware of America's rich natural heritage and of the importance of preserving it.

NOT ALL BAD
Sirs:
In your article on Moe Drabowsky (BASEBALL'S WEEK, June 5) much is said about some of his most infamous moments: he gave Stan Musial his 3,000th hit and was the losing pitcher in Early Wynn's 300th victory. In fact he compares closely with Tracy Stallard, who was around to give up Maris' 61st home run and was also the losing pitcher in Jim Bunning's perfect game. But unlike Stallard, Drabowsky stands out as having accomplished something else in his earlier days. It seems that Drabowsky was the only pitcher to get Willie Mays out on the Sunday he hit four home runs in County Stadium. I am not exactly sure if this accomplishment of Drabowsky's is good or bad, but it's something.
