Vivid Memories of 1940s Pomona

August 12, 1996

I enjoyed Robin Abcarian's "When Two Visions of One City Collide" (July 28), in which she quotes Pomona Councilwoman Nell Soto stating that "Latinos are far better off in Pomona than they once were."

I grew up in that city during the '40s and vividly remember people of color being allowed use of the public pool only on Thursday because Friday the water was changed. And not too many Mexicans ventured north of Holt, especially after dark.

We all need more Sotos to keep history in perspective for us--especially those who constantly cry about being "victimized."
