Both Barnetts are also excellent football players. However, each chose a different path in life. Upon his graduation in 1982, Doug took his talents as a defensive end to the NFL and is currently a member of the Los Angeles Rams. Mike, on the other hand, gave up playing linebacker so that he might better concentrate on qualifying in the javelin for the '84 Olympics.

As an amateur shotputter, I was thrilled to see Kenny Moore's article on Oregon's three Crouser brothers, along with Craig Neff's well-written piece on the American resurgence in the shotput (Udo Beyer Beware, the U.S. Is There, June 6). Finally, an effort has been made to give these athletes a measure of the recognition they so richly deserve.
Despite the excellence of both articles, one small fault remains to be corrected. In the paragraph concerning Michael Carter, SMU's fine shotputter, Neff states that no schoolboy has yet come within 10 feet of Carter's high school record of 81'3�". That's no longer true. A high schooler has come within 10 feet of the record, albeit not by much. On May 28, at the Golden South Classic in Orlando, Fla., Arnold Campbell of Bossier City, La. put the shot 71'10�".

I was disappointed to see one of my favorites omitted from " William Shakespeare's 15 Best Baseball Quotes" (LISTS, May 9): "Aaron, thou hast hit it" (The Tragedy of Titus Andronicus, Act II, Scene 1).
