Times have so changed in Long Beach and the cities surrounding it that the question is no longer whether more people will be laid off, but how many. Finding a way to ease the economic burden in the cities of the 38th Congressional District would be tough even for someone as experienced and powerful as incumbent Rep. Glenn Anderson, who after 24 years on the job has decided to retire. Enter Democrat Evan Anderson Braude and Republican Steve Horn.

Steve Horn, a moderate Republican political scientist who spent a decade in Congress representing Long Beach and surrounding areas after serving as president of Cal State Long Beach for nearly 20 years, has died. He was 79. Horn died Thursday at his Long Beach home from complications of Alzheimer's disease, said his son, Steve Horn Jr. On Capitol Hill, Horn was regarded as a maverick known for his bipartisanship during five terms in Congress from 1993 to 2003. Although he voted to impeach President Clinton, Horn often broke ranks with his party, including voting against oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Two years ago, Steve Horn used longtime connections crafted as an administrator and professor at Cal State Long Beach to buck a Democratic tide, sailing into the House of Representatives as one of a handful of Republican newcomers. Now, with Republicans talking optimistically about making major gains in the November election, the tide is running the other way.

The date that looms most urgently for Gerrie Schipske, the Democrat who is trying to unseat Rep. Steve Horn (R-Long Beach) is not Nov. 7, the day of the general election. It's June 30. That's the close of the current campaign finance reporting period, and Schipske strategists figure that the Long Beach nurse practitioner and attorney needs to reach mid-race fund-raising goals by then to demonstrate her candidacy's viability to national Democratic leaders.

A friend of Steve Horn's once put together a list of the Cal State Long Beach professor's personality traits. Although the details are now forgotten, Horn acknowledges that "arrogant, impatient, overbearing and demanding" as well as "generous, tireless, brilliant and open-minded" were noted side-by-side on that piece of paper. He still disagrees strongly with some of those judgments but said: "There is no question I do affect people in both ways . . .

Two weeks before the election, Evan Anderson Braude is getting ready to walk door to door in a quiet Long Beach neighborhood with neatly mowed lawns and shady streets. He has spent long, exhausting days on the congressional campaign trail and jokes with a campaign worker that he has his "sincere" blue pen, "sincere" campaign button and has taken off his "insincere" sunglasses. His kidding belies the seriousness of this campaign.

Well, "B-1" Bob Dornan and wife have done it again. They have turned a democratic Town Hall forum into a name-calling, vitriolic battlefield. I sincerely hope that the voters in the 38th Congressional District will finally realize that this demagogue needs to be returned to his rightful home in Beverly Hills, and not be returned to Congress to represent Orange County. Both Bob Dornan and Bill Dannemeyer are embarrassments to the voters of our fine county. LAURIE D. VINCENT Fullerton

I wish I could have been outside that Stanton theater ("Kovic Encouraged by Comments of Moviegoers," Jan. 27) to convey these thoughts to Ron Kovic: Being the subject of a successful Hollywood movie does not make one a good congressman or even a formidable opponent. Not everyone in the 38th Congressional District goes to movies, and those who do can tell the difference between fact and fantasy--Tom Cruise and Ron Kovic. Oh, he'll get a lot of support from The Times and even a lot of Times readers (although letters I've seen favorable to him were written by people who don't even live in this district)

Fourth District Supervisor Ralph B. Clark says he doesn't ordinarily give endorsements in partisan races, but he made an exception Friday when he backed "a tough law-and-order man," congressional candidate David O. Carter. Carter, a Superior Court judge on leave of absence to campaign for the 38th Congressional District seat, called Clark's endorsement "very significant.

As hard-charging Republicans across the country talk optimistically about marching back to Washington with big gains in the House of Representatives--possibly even a majority--there's one Southeast-area contest where the GOP is in a struggle to hold onto one of its own. Rep. Steve Horn (R-Long Beach) faces a spirited challenge from Cypress College associate professor Peter Mathews, 42, a Democrat who is vying to become the first American of East Indian descent in Congress since 1963.

I was disappointed to read the Times' Oct. 27 editorial critical of Congressman Bob Dornan. As the Washington lobbyist for Orange County, I have worked closely with Congressman Dornan. On issues important to the people of Orange County--such as transportation, housing and the Santa Ana River flood control project--Congressman Dornan has been a leader working in a bipartisan fashion to get things done. Contrary to The Times' editorial, Congressman Dornan has repeatedly demonstrated his ability to forge a consensus with his Democratic colleagues in order to advance the needs of his constituents.

Carol Gentry of Manhattan Beach complained about the treatment she and others received in Rep. Robert K. Dornan's Washington office from an aide when they were expressing their pro-abortion views (Letters, April 23). I'd like to explain to Gentry that if she lives in Manhattan Beach, Dornan is not her representative. I suggest that she contact her own representative when desiring to express her opinion. I have called Dornan's Washington and local offices many times (I live in the 38th Congressional District)

A newspaper report concerning my retirement from Congress erroneously indicated that I had yet to decide who I would support to succeed me in the new 38th Congressional District. Let me set the record straight. If (Long Beach) Councilman Evan Anderson Braude decides to make the race for Congress, I will most assuredly support and campaign wholeheartedly for him. Evan has worked hard as a Long Beach city councilman to improve the quality of life for everyone in our community.

I hope the recent movement by some to import Ron Kovic into our 38th Congressional District to oppose Robert K. Dornan fails. Such a confrontation might sell newspapers but has no other useful purpose. At a time when Dornan can and should be defeated, there are those who would run a person who hopefully could not be elected. Kovic is a man who apparently grew up with a distorted fantasy of war and a thirst for combat. During his second tour of combat in Vietnam, he was gravely wounded.
