DELANY: PORTRAIT OF A MAN
One such observation is so much more eloquent than 10 pages of lyricism on Dublin's cobbled streets and Eire's green sod. Mr. Holland achieved a minor masterpiece into which are deeply etched his own qualities as man, artist and thinker.
DELANY: A MAN TO BE RESPECTED
I sincerely hope that Gerald Holland's technique will serve as a pattern in the years to come. Ronnie Delany left your pages as he entered, an extremely likable young man, but he had grown in stature. We learned that he is sensitive, yet objective, forthright in giving others their due. He fully appreciated the honor shown him, yet assumed no cloak of modesty. A man to be respected for qualities other than stamina and speed. Your treatment of his girl friend was truly exquisite, if I may use the word.
Your photographer is to be congratulated for having sensed the spirit of Delany. Surely, Delany will speak of Holland in the words of the Christian Brother he describes: "You're very good and kind."
Sure and it was a grand effort.
BASEBALL: N.Y. TO L.A.
Who is Schrafft's? What is Chock full o' Nuts? Are we West Coast fans missing out on something? I couldn't get the gag at all. One of my buddies tried to explain it to me by pointing to a picture over the man's head that said N.Y. Giants. Who are the N.Y. Giants, and are they still in the National League?
?Schrafft's runs a number of New York and Boston tea shops, similar to the Pig'n Whistle in L.A. Chock full o' Nuts is a quick-order food chain like McDonnell's. Surely Mr. Kohnhorst remembers the Giants. They operate a joint near Coogan's Bluff called the Polo Grounds. Laraine Day's husband used to work there.—ED.
