In Hoosier Land
The Editor The Cats' Pause Lexington, Kentucky
I am enclosing a check to renew my husband's subscription for another year. A friend sent him the first year's subscription as a gift and we certainly don't want to miss an issue, particularly now that the basketball season has begun.
We enjoy each week's issue up here in northwest Indiana among all the Big 10 fans. We consider ourselves lucky to get any news of the Wildcats from the Chicago t.v. stations or the local newspaper. Even with Kentucky's fine football record, they had little to say. So your paper is the source for most of our information.
As native Kentuckians living here in Hoosier land, we are very faithful fans and always root for Kentucky, no matter what the sport. We don't care what anyone says, we know Kentucky is the bestl
Keep up the good work with your fine paper.
Sincerely, Mrs. Cecil Noel Lake Station, Indiana
Pulls For The Cats
I pulled for and died with the Wildcats during all of their bad years. It has surely been wonderful to go through a year on something other than a diet of "crow.'' Believe me, I've eaten my share of it.
Looking forward to the Cats' 5th NCAA Championship this year.

Cats Will Be There
Please renew my subscription to "The Cats' Pause." I still have a few weeks left, but I don't want to miss one single issue. I'm glad to see that there are many more rabid Wildcat fans. I've been following the Cats since high school. I played for a small school in Western Ky. that Owensboro and Hagan beat en route to their State Championship of 1949.
Outside of 4 years on the West Coast in the service, I've listened' to or
watched on TV every Wildcat game, and kept score. Even six years in Texas I tuned in to WHAS the best I could. The reception wasn't very good there. Now I get better reception here, and also nearly all games on TV, live or delayed. Sure wish all games could be televised.
I know an undefeated season is rare, but I'll be rooting for all the boys and Coach Hall to go all the way unbeaten, and for Robey to get the better of North Carolina and "Mr." Smith the next time they meet in the NCAA, if Carolina gets that far this year --Kentucky will be there!
Thanks, and keep up the good work.

Regards To Cawood
Enclosed you will find a check for renewal of my son's subscription to the Cats' Pause. As both my husband and I are natives of Barbourville, Kentucky, and have lived in Detroit for 12 years, we have always been avid Wildcat fans. We came into contact with "The Cats' Pause" through a fellow worker of my husband. We both enjoy reading it very much. My son was overjoyed with it because he has been a Wildcat follower since he was 7 years of age -- and he is now 21. So we decided "The Cats' Pause" would make a perfect birthday gift. And we have enjoyed reading "The Cats' Pause" as much as our son has enjoyed it.
All three of us follow the Wildcats' basketball and football over WHAS radio station. So our best wishes go out to all the Wildcat players as they start their '77-'78 season off, and especially to Coach Joe Hall. We have our fingers crossed, hoping that the Wildcats will go all the way this season for an NCAA Tournament Championship.
We couldn't close this letter without also sending our best regards to Cawood Ledford who does a marvelous job on his play by play. The Wildcats station wouldn't be the same without Cawood.
So good luck you Wildcats! You have lots of fans here in Detroit. And your biggest fans are:

I would like to express my "thanks" and gratitude for an excellent weekly newspaper. It is tough to live away
from Kentucky and not be able to keep up with the Cats in the local newspapers. You paper has been a real treat for me each week.
One thing I would like to see is more stories on the in-state and surrounding states' college football prospects. I surmise that Coach Curci does not like to have reported high school players that are visiting the campus or a list of football players that Kentucky coaches consider as major college material, or else you would be doing so. But I do think that through some of your "experts," newpaper or AP All-State teams, or some other publications that a list of "super" prospects and another list of "wanted" prospects could be put together for most of the states in which Kentucky recruits. It would be interesting to see All-State teams for most of the states in which Kentucky recruits to follow what players are going where.
This is the type of coverage (except for All-State teams) that you gave to basketball recruiting and I think football deserves the same. It is my opinion that most of your readers desire the same type of information so the "backers" of the Cats can be informed about football recruiting.
Best of luck to you and the Kentucky We're all looking forward to another NCAA championship for UK..

Please renew this subscription for my son who is stationed in Germany with the U.S. Air Force. This was my Christmas present to him a year ago. I think with his being such a die-hard UK fan a renewal of "The Cats' Pause" is the best present that I can send him this year.
Iam just as big a UK fan as anyone, myself. I attend some basketball and football games, and would attend more if I could get tickets. But that's impossible.
Yours truly, Hubert Probus Rosine, Kentucky
Enclosed is a check to cover the cost of a one-year renewal to your excellent publication. I was last year about this time that I received my first issue - the beginning of a one-year gift subscription from my father.
I had been in Texas for about three months and he knew that my heart longed for more information on the plight of The Big Blue. Needless to say, your publication gives more than adequate information.
Now, after an extremely successful
football campaign, I anxiously look forward to an even more eventful basketball season. Thanks to the powerful WHAS and the informative Cats' Pause, I will not have to miss it.

Go Big Blue
As you have heard from so many of the other subscribers, we're lucky to be able to see box scores from any of the Kentucky games. Therefore, "The Cats' Pause" means so much to us --so we can follow them from game to game. Your write-up on the Russian game was terrific and we can't see how anyone could possibly take top honors away from the Cats this year. I know we'll see them winning the NCAA in St. Louis in 1978.
The reason for this letter is to order a new subscription for my sister and her husband for Christmas. They love the Cats almost as much as we do and we couldn't think of anything they would enjoy more than to be able to get inside Kentucky basketball.
Thanks for making it possible for all of us dyed-in-the-wool Kentucky fans to share with you in this great paper. Go Big Blue!!!
Very truly yours, Sam Cox Westerville, Ohio
Just a few lines to let you know I just can't wait to get my first subscription to "The Cats' Pause." I was at my cousins' house in Evansville, Indiana, and he showed me several copies of "The Cats' Pause." I really like them. So here is my subscription money. I have been a Cats fan since the 1953-54 season, Ramsey's and Hagan's last year. I went to school at South Hopkins in Kentucky and have always been a Cats fan.
I hope you send me my subscription very soon. I "listen to the Cats on WHAS. It comes in really good here in St. Louis.
