Naturally, as golf is my field, I can see the unlimited advantages of the promotion of golf, not from the junior level as we know it, but from a grade-school level. Golf has the unique advantage of not requiring any physical properties other than the desire to play. In our area juniors play for a 25� fee. What better way for them to spend these long summer days? If nothing else, after a long day on the links they are too tired to get into much trouble at night!
We have a very active Little League organization here and even my own 4-year-old is begging for a glove and eagerly roots for his favorite team during the games. I understand they have been under fire lately with a charge of exploitation being placed against them. Judging solely from this particular segment of the country it is a very weak charge. The channeling of all that energy does fine things for the lad whose values are being molded and who is at an impressionable stage in his life. Surely active participation in a sport, any sport, teaches them valuable lessons for their manhood and above all trains and develops their bodies.
FAITH AND COURAGE
Since your very complimentary article in SI, Jan. 31, and again in the July 26th issue, I have received hundreds of letters from your readers, all expressing their wishes to help me get well. I wish I could answer all these letters but that is impossible at the present. However, I should like to thank you for making it possible for them to write to me.
A PARADOX CLEARED
?It is an unusual feat to take a fish at 30 feet with a double-strand sling, but the Pinder brothers are unusual. First of all, in expert hands Mr. Schofield's gun is not as effective, on a pound-pull ratio, as the sling used by the Pinders, because in a gun the spear's velocity is reduced by the impediment of the gun slidings. But even so, the circumstances have to be unusually good: the shot must be launched from the same plane, but just slightly above the fish, which would have to be almost motionless, as under a shell.—ED.
STORY OF THE YEAR
NO SHOT FOR BIG SHOT
Governor Anderson is probably "scoping" the animal to check for a good set of horns. Caption writer is only one "set to fire" and from the photograph apparently went off halfcocked.
