Regarding "An Outside Chance for Schoolkids" [June 7]: In 50 cities, Sierra Club Inner City Outings volunteers take youngsters hiking, camping and river rafting and engage them in conservation activities.

News that the activities of the Russian Communist Party have been suspended is heartening. I would like to hope that, inspired by this superb example, we might suspend the activities of the Democratic and Republican parties. ROBERT B. HOLDEN, Manhattan Beach

The secret to a healthy, happy life may be found at an art gallery, movie theater or concert hall. (It might even be in church, a baseball stadium or gym.) At least if you live in Norway. A study of more than 50,000 Norwegian men and women found that those involved in cultural activities -- either “receptive” activities like attending a concert or a baseball game or “creative” ones like playing in a band or working out -- were more likely to be satisfied with their lives and to say they were in good health.

I understand that the school board has initiated new rules and additional charges for groups using the local school facilities. Schools should be available for constructive recreational activities. As became all too obvious recently, young people must have "good" activities to fill their time. Fees have recently been enacted that are so excessive that many groups can no longer use the school facilities for off-hour sport events and square-dancing. The school system can no longer subsidize these activities, but neither should they be used to raise school funds.
