George Washington smothered Take for example the following remarks from Fred Lawson, sports editor of the Portsmouth (Ohio) Times: "If Arkansas was so disgusted with Wyatt's action, why did it not feel bad about enticing Jack Mitchell to leave Wichita? It appears Arkansas officials feel it's terrible for their coach to leave but it's okay to go out and get a coach to break a contract at another school. Now, how about a column on Arkansas getting Mitchell to break his contract at Wichita? Mickey Wright Leads Way in Women's Open TAMPA, Fla.

Archie's Trying Practically everyone who owns typewriter is being bombarded these days with letters from Archie Moore, the 175-pound champion, demanding that he be given first shot at Rocky Marciano's regal beak. Now comes Bobby Gleason, manager of Nino Valdes of Cuba, with proof that he can write, too. If anything, he's got bigger words than Archie. "Of course," Gleason counters, "we know that this braggadocio attitude on the part of Moore makes good reading for morons. Moore conveniently overlooks the fact that he Was knocked out by Ezzard Charles, who was soundly whipped by Valdes.
