This letter is in response to the recent letter from Rick Matson of Laguna Hills ("Further Steps in the War on Graffiti," May 24) on the involvement of Eric Wersching in graffiti removal in the city of Huntington Beach. Although Eric is to be highly commended for his time and efforts and the resulting awareness he has brought to this blight on our neighborhoods, the fact is that this problem is and has been taken care of by a program that has been in effect for at least 10 years.

At 15, Eric Wersching is not old enough to drive a car. But he already knows how to make city government move. The Ocean View High School freshman got praise and applause from city government last week for leading a program to fight graffiti. City officials have agreed that they will eradicate within 24 hours any graffiti reported on a hot line. Signs designed by Eric will soon be placed throughout the city, urging residents to call the designated number.

Mesa View School has been named a state finalist in a nationwide contest sponsored by NASA to choose the name of the space shuttle that will replace Challenger. A group of 12 fifth- and sixth-graders entered the Name the Orbiter Contest in December. They spent a month building a model of the shuttle--Adventure--made of plywood, papier-mache, plastic, corrugated cardboard and trash cans. It measured 63 feet long, 10 feet wide and 20 feet high, and had a tail that jutted 15 feet into the air.

Congratulations to Eric Wersching of Huntington Beach for his innovative ideas and determination to put an anti-graffiti program in place ("Young Graffiti Foe Sees Hot Line as Crusade Key," May 10). The 24-hour eradication program and anti-vandal posted signs with a hot line are a good start. It absolutely amazes me that it took a 15-year-old freshman to take the lead over city officials to come up with an approved concept. I have been patiently waiting for our politicians and lawmakers to come up with a take-charge, get-tough deterrent program.
