I was delighted to see the article on Oct. 22 describing Teri Uyemura's classroom written by (Times Staff Writer) Denise Hamilton. It was especially nice to see because I am also a teacher at Washington Middle School. I liked the way she captured the flavor of the classroom, and some of the descriptions of the students were very honest. However, there was one sentence that bothered me. It said "Unlike some of the other teachers they have for electives, Uyemura commands students' respect."

Your article by Denise Hamilton on "ecologically correct" fashion was a masterpiece of anti-fur bias ("Eco-Fashion, Naturally," July 6). The manufacture of fake fur uses a non-renewable resource, oil, as its base and the manufacturing process damages our air and water. The end product not only is non-biodegradable, but it fails to keep the wearer warm. The fact is that wearing fur is an ecologically and morally responsible thing to do, given the state of today's polluted planet.

The Ventura County Boy Scouts have honored five county residents as Law Enforcement Explorers of the Year, which is part of a program designed to introduce young men and women to possible careers as police officers. The Explorer Scouts serving with the police get a "much more realistic idea of what that career . . . is like," said Janie Such, an adviser to the local Explorers Assn. "And they have a lot of fun doing it."

Identifying with Denise Hamilton ("When Your Biological Clock Is on 'Snooze,' " Sept. 21), I would suggest that if the clock is on snooze, let well enough alone and don't let anyone make you feel guilty (for choosing not to have children). My husband and I were a young couple working diligently at our jobs. We chose a lifestyle that would allow us our much-deserved vacations and weekends off and the freedom to travel and to take part in the myriad of activities that life has to offer in Southern California and beyond.

Iwould like to point out what I feel to be a misrepresentation of certain facts presented in the March 11 article by Denise Hamilton: "Down-to-Earth Aid for Stargazers." The article did not do justice to the UCLA Physics Department Machine Shop, and I believe that the record needs to be set straight. As a member of the research team discussed in the article, I can personally vouch for the high degree of craftsmanship and professionalism demonstrated by the UCLA Physics Department Machine Shop.
