WHAT, NO ARCHERY?

Sirs:
I'd like to call to your attention the fact that archery is one of the fastest growing sports in the country at the present time.
HOWARD L. CHASE
Salisbury Broadcasting Corp.
Worcester

•Archery, yes. See next week.—ED.

Sirs:
There are two sports which I hope you are planning articles on for future issues-camping and spelunking.
A. C. MUELLER JR.
Scotch Plains, N.J.

•Coming up.—ED.

Sirs:
I was extremely pleased but there was one rather serious omission. Rodeo is a major sport.
(REV.) JOHN W. MEYER, C.S.B.
University of St. Thomas
Houston

•Watch for Hy Peskin's great rodeo coverage.—ED.

Sirs:
The debut of Sports Illustrated interests me for more than one reason. There's always a chance that some brave soul may take the right stand on what is now called wrestling.

If that enterprise has any claim to respectability it should be covered by a publication devoted exclusively to sports, but if it is a billion dollar racket, as claimed in many quarters, the new magazine should fight it.

Many popular wise guys take the very unethical position that as the fans are not compelled to support the hippodromes there is no harm in the promotion of the fraudulent thing by various states and cities-for a share of the take.
