SAROYAN: A WARNING
As your subject matter stick to reporting the forthright, honest effort that athletes exert.
This communication is prompted by a sense of duty to save you from being booby-trapped by possible letters in praise of this revolting, phony style of baseball reporting. You may assume that all readers who do not write are inarticulate with anguish.

BASEBALL: CLUTCH HITTER
I was very much interested in EVENTS & DISCOVERIES' description of Mr. Mullen's ingenious cardboard dial scorer for calculating baseball players' "clutch hitting" performances. Where can I get hold of one of these gadgets?

GOLF: VOTER'S RECORD
Herbert Warren Wind strikes a responsive chord when he suggests resumption of the one-stroke out-of-bounds penalty (Let's Clear Up the Rules, Oct. 22). Tally my vote. My qualifications: shooting 101 last Saturday, with an ace on the last hole!
