The aim of all universities is to educate and enlighten their students, and Memphis State is no exception. The university offers excellent educational opportunities in a wide range of disciplines. It is up to the individual, whether he or she is an athlete, band member or simply a regular student, to work for and earn a degree.
If any of the allegations surrounding the athletic department proves to be true, the university will accept the penalties meted out and will work to rectify the situation. In the meantime, the university will continue to fulfill its purpose—graduating men and women who can benefit society.

In your interview with Steve Courson concerning his use of anabolic steroids (Getting Physical—And Chemical, May 13), he told Jill Lieber, "I had Tampa Bay test my liver." Could you please tell us the results?
? Courson says he hasn't heard from the Buccaneers' doctors. He takes that as a good sign—that there isn't anything adverse to report.—ED.
Regarding Fast To The Very Last Gasp in the June 24 issue, that is Cornell's own Big Red, not the Princeton Tigers, pictured with the winning Harvard crew on page 64.

I was absolutely captivated by Philip Singerman's article (Nostalgia, June 24) on the red Morgan. His romance with the car parallels mine in every respect but one—mine was stored, his was sold.
Now, 20 years after the purchase of my "new" Morgan, I have a spotlessly refurbished red model that, unfortunately, my teenage sons drive as much as I do.
These cars should be passed from generation to generation!

Thank you for the amusing and informative article/quiz (How Did Heavyweight Boxing Become The Muddle It Is? Time For A Quiz, July 1). So many "fighters" have plodded in and out of the spotlight that it is enough to send even the sharpest experts looking for a three-credit course to reeducate themselves.
However, you listed an incorrect answer to multiple-choice question No. 7. You said that A, the WBC, had seven champions in the last seven years when, in fact, it was D—the WBA. I guess all those A's, B's and C's can confuse even the best of us. Here's a helpful hint for remembering everything you need to know about heavyweight boxing today. Simply memorize these 11 letters: L-A-R-R-Y H-O-L-M-E-S.
