David Snow, the Riverside father who has spent the last 18 months running a one-man campaign against the lawn dart--the metal-tipped toy that killed his young daughter--won another victory Friday when Congress passed legislation to ban the sale of the toy.

As quests go, the one Thousand Oaks garden designer David Snow embarked on is a doozy. For six months, Snow has devoted himself to saving the reputation of America's most beloved butterfly by getting the world's largest maker of pesticides to change its ways.

We start off with Rose McGowan as a young Cora, a miller's daughter, who is humiliated in the town when a visiting princess trips her. Cora was made to apologize by the king, but her eyes burned with vengeance. Henry and Neal are piloting Hook's ship as they return from New York with a dying Mr. Gold. Gold doesn't look well, as Emma notes. "The poison racing towards my heart will have that effect," says Mr. Gold. At least it hasn't dulled his wit.

Hats off to David Snow who crusaded tirelessly for a year for safety after his daughter was killed by a lawn dart (Part I, May 26). At last the federal Consumer Product Safety Commission has been persuaded to ban all lawn darts capable of causing skull punctures. Let's enforce the ban immediately. We don't want more children maimed or killed. JEAN MICHENER NICHOLSON Altadena

An archeological team began the first of several exploratory digs on the Santa Fe Plaza last week in the heart of the nation's oldest capital city. Within hours, volunteer diggers were unearthing interesting shards of pottery, including a button-size chip of blue and white Mexican majolica clay used in pottery since the 17th Century. Excavation leader David Snow said diggers could find older plaza levels, Indian artifacts and evidence of frontier life.
