DREAM RACE (CONT.)Sirs:I am in accord with your suggestion for a Dream Race (SI, July 30) if only to prove "the error of their ways" to those poor misguided "turf experts" who last year voted Nashua Horse of the Year.

In his 20 years as coach at Tulane, his teams have won 14 Southeastern Conference championships and have won 152 dual meets, against 25 defeats and 11 ties.

His present pupils include Aguero, the new Southern amateur champion; Ronald Holmberg, the 1956 Wimbledon junior champion and 1955 U.S. National junior indoor champion; and Crawford Henry, National Interscholastic champion.

At the age of 48, Coach Pare still plays on better than even terms with all of these young men. A member of the first Tilden professional tour in 1931 and two years later National Professional doubles champion with Bruce Barnes, Pare was previously Western amateur and National Clay Courts champion.

This marks his 25th anniversary as a professional and I feel that recognition by your outstanding publication would be quite appropriate.

THE PHYSIOLOGY OF FITNESS
Sirs:
I have read with much interest your article Conference at Annapolis: First Blow for Fitness (SI, July 2).

I would like to obtain the complete text of the Kraus-Weber test (The Report that Shocked the President, SI, Aug. 15, 1955).

I am interested in keeping abreast of the progress of the proposed council on fitness because I hope to do research in the area of physiology of exercise which may be applied to physical fitness.

?The original report of the Kraus-Weber test is found in the New York State Journal of Medicine, Vol. 54, No. 2, Jan. 15, 1954, "Muscular Fitness and Orthopedic Disability."—ED.
