In your opinion, should this money also go to the holder of the inning in which the one run was scored? Should this be added to the aggregate fund? Should the three dollars be split between the other 16 shareholders?
My contention was that, inasmuch as the game had been played, it did not belong to the aggregate pool. It did not seem right that the first-money winner should also get this added amount. Actually, we settled amicably, but I wonder what would have happened if this $3.00 had had the decimal moved over behind a few zeros?
Our interest is actually in the justice of the distribution. We thought perhaps your readers could help us.

FOOTBALL: MOTHER'S MONSTER
Your story on "Mother's Big Bad Monsters" (WONDERFUL WORLD OF SPORT, Oct. 19) rang a bell in our household. When my son Jim, a senior at Cubberly High School in Palo Alto, told me that his picture would be on the cover of the football annual, I was pleased and excited.
"It's a great picture, Mom," says he.
If there are any mothers floating around your staff office, they can imagine my reaction when I saw the great picture.
Last week I received an unexpected dividend. Jim's teammates had made him laugh when he posed for a program shot, and it was my turn to enjoy his state of shock.
This is Cubberley's third year in the South Peninsula Athletic League. In their first year of league play the Cougars won the title; last year they tied with Sequoia ( Redwood City) for the championship; this year, to date, three wins, no losses.
