For the past month or so, a newly arrived tourist would have thought that half of the people in San Francisco were deaf and forced to the use of hearing aids. The sale of pocket-size transistor radios was terrific, as no well-dressed San Franciscan would be without his radio when the team was playing either at home or on the road, and he carried his electronic aid to the opera or opening night of a stage show. Well, as they used to say in Flat-bush, "Wait till next year." A sign at the 49ers-Eagles football game on Sunday read, "The Giants were too young and the 49ers are too old."
BASEBALL: THE ADMIRAL AND THE MAYOR
I sent the copy of the magazine to the mayor of San Juan, Do�a Felisa, with the following written on the picture of her pitching the first ball:

FOOTBALL: THE BIG BIG TEN
A lot of discerning football fans hope Northwestern's convincing, no, ultra-convincing victory (FOOTBALL'S 2ND WEEK, Oct. 5) will be an enduring lesson to those preseason prognosticators who annually take the easy way out and select Oklahoma as the top team, and to those sports-writers and pollsters who vote Oklahoma as the top team in the country on the basis of their wins against Big Eight-type competition.
This premise will be further borne out in the remainder of the season when Oklahoma again runs rampant against their remaining opponents while Northwestern proves to be only an above-average team in the Big Ten.
