Cauthen on Top

To the Editors:

Steve Cauthen [May 29] has the enduring qualities of a new national hero. He has shown us that the seemingly rare combination of youth, hard and honest work, love and true talent is alive, well and at the top.

Leslie E. McBain San Leandro, Calif.

At 18 years, Steve Cauthen has put more energy and devotion into his career than most will in their lifetime. A born winner? Steve will be the first to tell you that there's just no such thing.

Alice C. Petersen Seattle
