As for the threat of no pro baseball this year, if America can survive Watergate and Vietnam, it can surely survive a year without baseball. The real losers would be the players, the owners and Marvin Miller.
UP JUMP THE DEVILS
It was with anguish and astonishment that I read Curry Kirkpatrick's article on parity in college basketball (Why the Game Is on the Level, March 3), especially his implication that the Duke Blue Devils were not worthy of an invitation to the NCAA tournament. How could you leave for dead a team that, when playing up to its capabilities, is a thing of beauty—five individuals playing as one. something, the NBA hotshots would be well advised to duplicate? As you are now aware, the Blue Devils did play the type of ball they are capable of in winning the ACC tournament, earning a well-deserved bid to the NCAAs. To err is human, but to forgive on this matter is out of the question.
