ALL ABOUT DUCKS
Sirs:
May I, on behalf of Ducks Unlimited, convey to you the very sincere thanks of our organization for the splendid story written by Coles Phinizy (Be Kind to Your Web-footed Friends, SI, Oct. 21).

The story is most accurate indeed and we wish to congratulate SPORTS ILLUSTRATED for a wonderful job well done.
ARTHUR BARTLEY
Executive Director

Sirs:
Mr. Phinizy's article on Tom Sterling and the work he is doing with ducks is most interesting and instructive to the 2 million who love them.

Ducks Unlimited has undoubtedly done wonderful work. Could you enlighten us where our contributions should be sent?

GOLF: DREAMS OF GLORY
Sirs:
I just read George Plimpton's article (Newport Gets Some Tips from the Top, ST, Oct. 14) and enjoyed it very much.

He included little details which were very interesting to me as a golf professional, and I trust to many other people.

If he plays golf as he writes it he should be captain of the Walker Cup team.

BRIDGE: TESTING, TESTING (CONT.)
Sirs:
I enjoyed taking Mr. Goren's test (SI, Oct. 14) very much, and I think it was a very fair test of one's bidding knowledge. The one hand which caused me trouble and a bottom score was No. 13 (see below). I was under the impression that a takeout double provided support for any suit my partner might bid. The chances are very good that my partner is going to bid diamonds, and if his hand is weak, we are going to be set. I chose two clubs, assuming rubber bridge, as the best of bad bargains because the chances are moderately good of taking five tricks, and it gives us a good idea of how to defend against our opponent's possible contract, especially no trump.

13 Neither vulnerable. Your right-hand opponent opens the bidding with one heart. What is your bid?
