19TH HOLE: THE READERS TAKE OVER
July 30, 1956
ARE WOMEN PEOPLE? OH, BROTHER! Sirs:Mr. Marquand's vitriolic lady member (Are Women People at Happy Knoll?, SI, July 23) is unfortunately not a figment of the author's imagination. Today every golf club in the country has its Lydia Feltons, and I am sorry to say they have changed what used to be a meeting place of like-minded friends for the purpose of getting some exercise into a progressive day camp for adolescents and their footloose mothers.

A HISTORY OF RUNS PRODUCED
Sirs:
A salute to your X-RAY! Until your invention of this brief, handy chart, I have been known to wait till payday to buy the latest SPORTS ILLUSTRATED. NOW I must have the new one on the first day out. I am glad you realized that statistics are a very necessary part of baseball. You completed your fine magazine when you added this column.

My interest in unusual averages was stimulated by your "Runs Produced" section, so I spread out my well-worn record books and enjoyed compiling the tables for champions of the last 16 years and those with seasons over 300, although the latter may be incomplete. Perhaps other readers can add to the 300 list.

These tables will help to set a standard for good run production so that the records of such as Mantle the Mauler can be compared to recent history.
