? SI, belatedly consulting its own diary, finds Reader Gault correct; the year was '49.?ED.
NOT ONE LINE
?Twenty-five-year-old Harold Worst, picked by the great Willie Hoppe himself (SI, Nov. 15) to defend the championship, gratified his mentor by becoming on Oct. 25 in Buenos Aires, the youngest World Three-Cushion Billiards Champion. Hoppe became convinced of Worst's abilities several years ago, took him on an exhibition tour with him. The winner on points: Harold Worst.?ED.
THE HANDLING IS EXCELLENT
?The two great sires alternate in heading the English Winning Sires list. The latest figures give Hyperion's set a #2,500 edge over Nasrullah.?ED.
THE PERFECT GAME
I take exception to the statement?"The fans like the one-platoon football best!!" I am a fan and I don't like it! In the last two years there have been no such games played as those played by the 1947 Michigan two-platoon team?conference and Rose Bowl champions.
The most perfect game ever played by any one team was that 35-0 game Michigan State took from Notre Dame, the great two-platoon team of MSC, national champions of 1952. There were no errors committed that day by either the defense or the offense.
