RED SETTERS
Sir:
I enjoyed the article Irish with a Touch of Limey (Nov. 20) by Robert H. Boyle. My father spent a great part of his life breeding and running red dogs in field trials. One of my earliest memories is of riding in the back seat of an old Buick with a red setter on one side of me and a pointer on the other. Red setters are a worthy breed and it is good to see them gaining more recognition.

Sir:
It seems every week you come up with a new and refreshing article, and your piece on red setters was no exception. My hunting hat goes off to Robert H. Boyle.

Sir:
Your story about the Irish (and English) setters was for the dogs. Why don't you have more articles on surfing?

OUTWITTING THE SQUIRRELS
Sir:
Jeannette Bruce is not alone (VIEWPOINT, Nov. 27). Ringling Bros, never put on a show as daring as the one our squirrels performed at the Droll Yankee bird feeder I put up at a friend's house last Christmas.

For more than a month I kept devising new antisquirrel measures, none of which was successful for much more than a minute and a half, and I became the butt of numerous jokes. Two square feet of sheet metal and eight square feet of clear plastic sheeting finally did the trick (or else the squirrels simply got tired of the game). Theirs was the last laugh, though, because whenever I look at that bird feeder now, I'm not looking for birds, I'm looking for squirrels.
