19TH HOLE: THE READERS TAKE OVER
January 18, 1971
FIGHTING GAMECOCKS Sirs:Congratulations on your article The Toughest Kid on Anybody's Block (Jan. 4). You couldn't have picked a better man to feature than John Roche or a better team than the South Carolina Gamecocks. The Gamecocks may have bad tempers, but you have to admit that they're good.

PRECEDENT
Sirs:
Please extend my congratulatory thanks to William Leggett for his fine article on the Kansas City Royals' baseball school (To the Tune of a Hickory (Well, Ash) Stick, Jan. 4). I think Royals Owner Ewing Kauffman has set an excellent precedent for the baseball world to follow. Were age not a factor (I believe, in my case, it would be) I would seriously make an attempt to gain admission to his school. To Mr. Kauffman I offer my best wishes for success.

Sirs:
The school that Ewing Kauffman has set up is a step in the right direction to prepare baseball for the future. And that raises a big but simple question: If the baseball academy is a success (and I have a satisfying feeling that it will be), could similar schools be set up for basketball, hockey and even football?

RESOLVED
Sirs:
Among the New Year's resolutions printed in your Jan. 4 PEOPLE column is one by Howard Cosell to "quit as soon as I can afford it." I don't know Mr. Cosell's address, but in order that his resolution may be speeded on to fulfillment, here is my dollar. Please forward it to him.
