It's about time someone brought the story of Don Campbell to light ("A Hoofer's Place in History," by Jeff Spurrier, July 23). Back in 1968, when I was a Sunday afternoon deejay at KGFJ, Campbell would drop by and start dancing. He simply startled everyone with his talents. This man was, and is, a pioneer of African American dance culture. Everyone else has borrowed from Don Campbell. Tom Reed Los Angeles I had the good fortune of being a frequent dance partner of Don Campbell from 1978 to 1980.

Gordon Shaw, a retired UC Irvine physicist whose provocative research on classical music and the brain led -- to his dismay -- to a mania for what was popularly dubbed the "Mozart effect," died of kidney cancer Tuesday at his Laguna Beach home. He was 72. Shaw was an expert on particle physics who had studied under Nobel laureate Hans Bethe before he joined the UCI faculty in 1965.

The State Lands Commission voted 3 to 0 Thursday to sell a 640-acre patch of desert in Imperial County, called Slab City, to Escondido building contractor Don Campbell.

Eighty people were rounded up Friday in a northern Iraqi village after U.S. forces were told they might find four local leaders of Saddam Hussein's Baath Party there, the Army said. Col. Don Campbell, commander of the 4th Infantry Division's 1st Brigade, which is responsible for the area in northern Iraq, said many of the prisoners from Siwash probably would be released. But he said that at least one man apprehended had been sought by U.S. forces, although he was not on the most-wanted list.
