Sir:How refreshing to read about a professional athlete who doesn't think through a sneaker or talk through an agent's mouth (The Fire Was Gone and So He Quit, Nov. 22). Dave Cowens' attitude reflects a person who seems to be not only physically fit, but also psychologically stable enough to consider himself as much more than a commercial package of muscle and sweat.

The FACES IN THE CROWD item (Nov. 15) on Bala Jahumpa, Vassar soccer star, stated that the team had a 7-0 record. That was only its league record. Lest readers think Vassar played only half a schedule, we should point out that the combined league and non-league record was 11-2.
