T-SHIRTS AT NOTRE DAMEIn her story about the Miami-Notre Dame football game (Not So Bitter End, Oct. 29), Sally Jenkins reports that the notorious Miami-baiting T-shirts are banned from sale on the Notre Dame campus. Lou Holtz is quoted as saying, "I assure you Notre Dame has absolutely nothing to do with them...." Take a look around the campus and its parking lots. On game day, one can purchase shirts with slogans far more offensive than those mentioned in the story.

GEARING UP
I would like to set the record straight concerning our athletic shoe firm, L.A. Gear (SCORECARD, Oct. 29). L.A. Gear is the fastest growing of the major athletic shoe companies: Our sales grew 40% during the third quarter of 1990 in a most difficult environment. Sports agent Leonard Armato is a big factor behind our success, particularly in the men's performance market. What others call "conflict of interest," we call synergy. Houston Rocket Akeem Olajuwon asked Armato to represent him for the same reason as L.A. Gear did—his extraordinary knowledge of and respect in the sports industry.
