Perhaps the ideal street is Jess Neely Drive in Nashville, site of Vanderbilt's athletic department and stadium. Neely is the sixth-winningest college football coach in history, but he once told me he took the most pride in the fact that in his 27 years at Rice the great majority of his players went on to graduate from that excellent academic institution. Neely certainly had his values concerning the student-athlete in the proper order. When he retired from Rice, he returned to Vanderbilt, his alma mater, where he served as athletic director emeritus and golf coach.

BEAN'S DECOY MAN
On page 96 in the article on L.L. Bean you show a picture of three hunters and identify them as "End, Soule and Gorman." End and Gorman were described in the story, but who is Soule? I could not find any other reference to him.
PAUL L. GUSTAFSON
?George Soule, 71, a fishing and hunting partner of L.L.'s with a penchant for tying flies and carving decoys, set up for Bean a department devoted to those pursuits and also produced Bean's first cork-bodied toller, a decoy, before branching out into his own decoy-carving business in the late '30s. Now retired, Soule can still be seen in Bean catalogs posing with his popular decoys, some of which are shown above.—ED.
