How Tex can even imagine that the Giants will lose to L.A. is beyond comprehension.

Mark Mulvoy captured Coach Billy Reay (Two Worlds Against the Black Hawks, Dec. 7) like a camera takes a picture.

Man for man, the Black Hawks are the best in the West, if not the league. It won't be a Happy New Year for their opponents.
I found the comments on snowmobiles in SCORECARD (Nov. 9) most interesting but would like to point out that Skiroule Limit�e, Wickham, Quebec, a division of The Coleman Company, Inc., was the first snowmobile manufacturer to announce that it would reduce the power of its 1970-71 machines. All Skiroules made for consumers now have a power range below 440 cc's. Limiting of power was a voluntary measure taken to encourage the sane and safe use of these popular machines.

Thanks to Dan Levin for an article (Farewell and Come Back, Fiji, Dec. 7) that captures something of the rugby mystique. Hopefully Americans will embrace a rugged and vigorous sport that offers postgraduate athletic activity and camaraderie beyond those twin Sirens of middle age, the golf course and the color TV set.

Your tongue-in-cheek comments (SCORECARD, Dec. 7) concerning the latest development in baseball equipment were hardly what we have come to expect from the nation's most progressive sports publication. There is no problem when using our aluminum bat "on a cold day in March." It comes with a specially developed grip, similar to that of a tennis racket or golf club.
Because of the durability of this new item, a team of youngsters can go through a season and more with a maximum of four bats, one of each length, 28" to 31"—even when they hit the ball on the label.
