Holdout center Bill Lewis filed suit against the Raiders in Los Angeles County Superior Court Wednesday, asking to be declared a free agent. Lewis contends he is not under contract. The Raiders contend that he is in his option year. Lewis concedes that he signed a contract with an option for this year, but claims that there were extraordinary and confusing circumstances that should void the option.

The March 8 article in The Mature Traveler column by Bill Hughes about "Space Available" for military air travel was misleading. The veterans he was referring to were, of course, retired military. However, space available military air travel is authorized for all active duty military, some government employees overseas and dependents of both groups. My wife and I have crossed the Pacific for $10 and for the same fare made many trips in the Far East. BILL LEWIS Pusan, Korea

The purpose of workers' compensation insurance is to put a cap on the liability of employers for work-related injuries. If stress injuries are no longer compensable under workers' compensation, then employees who feel victimized would be free to sue their former bosses for unlimited damages (i.e., million-dollar lawsuits), thereby adding untold billions to the cost of doing business in California. The current system prevents most employees from taking such action. Skyrocketing premiums affect us all, but our state legislators should examine the consequences of "reform" before they go full-speed ahead.

I read Bill Lewis' rebuttal (Letters, Feb. 20) to the two parents who complained about the situation in the Orange Unified School District, and I think Mr. Lewis missed the point. Orange does not have too many administrators. It has too many crooked and incompetent administrators. Administrators who, over the past six years, engaged in multimillion-dollar construction fraud. Administrators who were fired and their six-figure contracts paid off. Administrators who have proven their inability to manage the district by continuing to lay off employees each year, despite the fact that all of the other school districts in Orange County, facing exactly the same state budget problem, have been able to balance their budgets through attrition, minimal cuts to student services and--a concept that is obviously foreign to the Orange board--effective management.

The last of the prodigal Raiders, holdout ex-center Bill Lewis, reported Thursday, meaning that at long last they're all in their places with smiles on their faces. Well, give or take a countenance or two. Starting with Bill Lewis. "The situation has nothing to do with my teammates," Lewis said. "As far as playing for the Raiders (goes), I don't have a problem with that. "As far as the rest of it goes with the front office--sure, there's a problem there. I'm not going to deny that.
