A salute to some who have earned the good opinion of the world of sport, if not yet its tallest headlines

Ed Crowley (center, flanked by Texas Oilmen Gordon Guiberson and Clint Murchison) is a Los Angeles hotel manager far better known for his golf (he plays often with Bing Crosby) than his shooting. But while tramping the countryside with his two cronies at Murchison's Mexican hideaway near Tampico, Crowley came upon a mountain lion Murchison's dogs had treed. The other two, experienced hunters, gave Crowley a 12-gauge shotgun and he dispatched the 110-pound cat like a veteran.
