At Maxwell Municipal galf j"« Preakness Saturday. Ten 3' This letter from J. W. Shipley of Graham dated Tuesday: "I'm writing this letter in response to Mr. Gerloff's leltev. Apparently he didn't take into account that Rule could have better times than they had at the regional meet. "His being a neighbor of Rule 1m should of knmrn Jimmy Lisle had run a 9.9 in the 100 and 22.9 in the 220. "I don't see any way in the world Rule could have finished 14th and scoring just 11 points. "As for him saying you put undue pressure on Jimmy Lisle and the Rule team. He must not know much about sports, if he did he would have known that pressure makes an athlete perform better. "I can see how he put Snook ahead of Rule, with Iheir great sprint relay team, hut how did he figure Celina over them when Celina only scored 12 points. "As for me I figured Rule with about 34 points and a tie for third place, but I'm glad Rule won, because I went to school with the Slate champs. "I'm glad your prediction for title was correct and not Mickey Gerloff's. "Rule has cerlainly had an outstanding year in sports topped off by a State championship. 1 think Lisle just about proved he was the best in the state in Class B. I think Rule has finally earned a place of respect in the Big Country. "Soe wliai you can do about getting 'the Abilene paper to Graham. We don't get it maybe 3 to 4 times a week." Now, in all fairness to Gerloff, (he Aspermont track enthusiast did do his predicting without hindsight and he has good basis for his predictions. But, you are right about pressure making m o s t athletes perform better. Certainly hope your paper service improves as Graham is one of our belter areas for being interested enough to keep us informed as to what is going on in athletics. will be the starling fullback.
