I have had the privilege, for more than 50 years, to coach athletic teams in three sports in connection with my work and feel that the real solution to most of our problems lies in the proper physical outlet and control of our teen-age boys and girls. I am firmly convinced that, given the proper environment and opportunity, they will respond.
HEALTH THROUGH ENJOYMENT
BROOKLYN'S BETTER WORLD
I have caddied on this course (while in prep school) and have played on it and as a result should and do know the people who patronize it. Contrary to popular belief Brooklynites speak just as any person does that lives in or around New York City. In my opinion the speech Miss Perry included in her article ("Hey Hoibert," "Get the pernt," etc.) was used by her (as it is by many writers) for color—for a laugh. I know of no resident of Brooklyn who speaks in this manner.
In all, your article showed the residents of Brooklyn as a bunch of thugs—stealing, cursing, dirty—with no manners and completely undesirable.
If the editors of SI felt they were doing Dyker Beach Golf Course a favor, I am afraid they were completely mistaken. It was in very bad taste and completely untrue.
BROOKLYN HAS THEM
SPEAKING OF TASMANIA...
Australia's Island State (pop. 310,000) has at least 25 golf courses (some nine holes) which results in a bit more room to play than at Dyker, and, with a climate like the more temperate parts of Ireland, golf is a year-round game. The best courses are rather like the best in Britain.
