Ten students in the Santa Ana Unified School District's migrant education program attended a 4-H Club leadership conference at UC Davis this month with scholarships provided by the 4-H organization. The money, a total of about $2,000, helped pay for room, board and conference fees. The school district's migrant education program added another $1,000 for plane fares, said Olga Wong, a community assistant with the program.

Re "From Pet to Pork Chop: Facts of Life at the Fair," (July 23): Every year I go to the fair, and every year I'm amazed that parents still encourage and promote 4-H Clubs and the raising of livestock by their children. At the end of this "glorious" experience that includes the cuddling, bottle-feeding and grooming of cherished animals like Thumbelina and Squirt, they end up sold to the highest bidder and slaughtered. The mentality of these types of organizations seemed darn bent on corrupting and desensitizing the minds of the young, innocent and impressionable.

Leaders of Iowa's 4-H clubs say a plank in the state Republican platform accusing the youth agricultural groups of veering toward socialism and promoting homosexuality is--well, a lot of bull.

Eleven-year-old Marie King planted her feet firmly in the hay-strewn dirt as a horse named Boe towered above, wrapping his long neck around her and nuzzling her cheek. "I just got him last Tuesday," King announced, adjusting a green velvet riding helmet. "He's a wonderful horse. He has a wonderful stride. I'm very excited. This is my first horse and I feel ready for the responsibility ahead." But that wonder could be short lived. UC Irvine plans to pave Boe's pasture for a new student center.

In their neighborhood, the kids of Compton Avenue Elementary School in Watts hear the gunfire and see the tears and understand, at too early an age, how hard life can be. They know about drive-bys and drug deals and how street gangsters can tear down anything they don't claim as their own. But through the eyes of children, a grim world can still sparkle. And when they are given the chance, they dream of a better place.

All year long, students in the agricultural sciences magnet at Canoga Park High School have fed, cleaned up after and even coddled their goats, sheep, pigs, rabbits and cows. Now, it's time to go to market. On Friday, these Future Farmers of America will perform a kind of dress rehearsal at the school in preparation for showing their livestock at this summer's San Fernando Valley Fair, where they'll attempt to sell off animals they raised.

Everybody is talking tomatoes at this time of the year because it's finally warm enough to plant the main-crop varieties. But which one? Which variety tastes best, produces the most or makes the biggest hamburger-smothering slices? That's what gardeners are debating over the back fence, at nurseries, even at the office. Those who had problems in the past also want to know which kinds are the most resistance to cursed tomato diseases that can shrivel plants before their time.
