Your article, "Why Ronnie Knox Quit California," was interesting and especially well written. However, with great respect for Harvey Knox's concern for the success and well-being of his stepchildren?one can't help but feel sorry for the youngsters. Normal kids do not want their parents exploiting them. They like to make good on their own. It will be interesting to follow their careers?as they are really on the spot now.
1. Poor Harvey is suffering from a terrific juvenile persecution complex and refuses to face the reality that Ronnie is a man and someday is going to have the problem of facing life without his sophomoric father smoothing over every ruffle for him.
2. Vic Schmitt, Pacific Coast Commissioner, had better roll up his sleeves and really investigate this "under the table" proselytizing that evidently certain influential alumni of our state schools are using to build up their athletic rosters.
Just before leaving for a weekend by the seashore ( Cape Cod) I packed up my old bait-casting gear as well as the new spinning outfit I had planned to rely on exclusively.
WHAT KIND OF MAYHEM?
I recall a game between St. Mary's College and Stanford...when Dick was a dashing halfback for Stanford, and a considerable amount of mayhem took place that afternoon in Stanford Stadium...A St. Mary's quarterback named Gorman lost the sight of one eye, and Stanford end Spud Harder suffered two broken jawbones. Numerous minor injuries-were received by other players, and they didn't wear "cages" on their faces in those days.
