I become a horn-blowing, vehement, profanity-gurgling animal, fully reared in the techniques of the native animal—the New Yorker. A fender for a fender, a grill for a grill, an eye for an eye, but the New Yorker usually tries for "two of the same." A selfish, swaggering, boastful, often incoherent, brash, loud, overstuffed bundle of nothing—the New Yorker. Belonging to nothing, he seizes on the superficial, proclaiming that size and noise make up for quality and character. He has no football team to cheer in the autumn air; and the autumn air is composed of 50% carbon monoxide and 50% loud mouthings of a language foreign to the rest of America. Autumn is a time for outdoors, of mountains and forests, of leaves turning brown and gold. And all the bright and glittering superficialities common to the frustrated New Yorkers will never replace the works of nature. They were here long before the lights and the marquees.
HIGH COST OF LIVING
Also, please extend my thanks to W. H. Wender (19TH HOLE, Oct. 24). His explanation of his cost of fishing most certainly did wonders here at home. I was having a little trouble explaining why my trout this year jumped in cost from $16 to $18.33 per pound of fish caught.
Just how many more sports are you guys going to find? Never realized how many there were until SI. Your magazine is a source of constant information; it is even better than Webster's for winning sports arguments.
My wife wishes to defy the Happy Knoll constitution and also make application for membership. She feels that by coming in the back door, so to speak, she is crossing up the old guard.
?No need for the back door, the Ladies' Entrance is through the Olympic Fund. Our warmest thanks to Mr. Bland and to the many other new guest members, among whom are the Messrs. Dean, Lubbock, Texas; Radebaugh, Lancaster, Ohio; Richard, Philadelphia; Anderson, Boston, and Brown, Salem, Oregon. The contributions this week have made it one of the most profitable of the Happy Knoll Olympic Fund drive to date.—ED.
A STORM OF PROTEST
Best available estimates, however, indicate that roughly 90% of the 1,400 hunters this year came from the United States and this has evoked a storm of protests.
