Holyfield-ForemanIt was remarkable to finally witness a great heavyweight championship fight (No Joke, April 29). George Foreman proved to be a worthy contender, and Holyfield proved he is worthy of the title. In a sport that has often been called corrupt, it was wonderful to see two men accomplish their dreams and be able to hold their heads high.JERRY A. UPTONGreer, S. C.

Playing by the Rules
The story in your April 8 issue regarding the possibility that the NCAA women's basketball rules committee may vote to lower the rim six to 10 inches (COLLEGE BASKETBALL) reflects the provincial and wrongheaded thinking of many of America's sports leaders. Our men's and women's basketball teams are at a disadvantage in international play because they have to learn the rules that the rest of the world uses.

As the world shrinks and sports become more international, we should make every effort to have our rules conform to those of the rest of the world. On the other hand, inasmuch as the American and National Leagues can't get together on the designated hitter rule, it would probably be too much to expect that we could agree with the rest of the world on the rules of sport.
