Bowling Green, Ohio
ON THE TOWN
My hat is off to Dan Jenkins for his article on Dave Marr (Golfing's Pro of 52nd Street, Feb. 2). It seems in this great golfing world all you hear about is the big money winner, the pro with the best gimmick or the showboat. Smooth and suave Dave Marr is, in my opinion, a perfect example of the gentleman golfer and a credit to the PGA and to the game itself. Keep swingin', Dave.
Old Forge, Pa.
From Dan Jenkins' article on Dave Marr we get the impression that you think Minerva, Ohio is a hick town. Maybe the population is only 4,000, but we have fun even without those big "celebs" which you seem to think you must have to have fun.
On one of those "dazzling Manhattan nights" we would hope that you would see some celebrities. We mean, New York is the biggest city in the U.S. You should have some of the biggest names in sports because there are two pro football teams, two baseball teams and two basketball teams, etc. But we don't have air pollution or traffic jams or strikes. So don't put down Minerva unless you look at yourselves first. We're talking for millions of small towns everywhere.
