I found particularly striking the juxtaposition of the story about xenophobic Glenn Spencer ("Brash Evangelist," by Patrick J. McDonnell, July 15) with the story about seeking the source of our human experience of unity (which some people call God). I wonder if Spencer can ever calm his over-stimulated fear and anger to start to understand that we are all, literally, in this together. His efforts to draw the line are wasting his life, his intelligence and his resources. Kay Stewart San Diego Whether Spencer realizes it or not, he is a racist.

There were better finishes than Oklahoma State at Texas A&M. Washington and Kansas State needed goal-line stands to hold off California and Miami. There were outcomes more shocking, namely Temple's 38-7 upset over Maryland's shocking uniforms. Temple had been 0-12 against Atlantic Coast Conference teams. The Owls were once so lowly they got booted out of the Big East Conference, which would now be stronger with Temple back in it. There were games with more pressure on coaches.

On a cloudless morning in Westwood, Glenn Spencer is talking about treachery. The new leaders of the United States and Mexico are poised to meet amid a feel-good public relations buildup that has enraged Spencer, self-styled crusader against what he calls Mexico's reconquista of California and the Southwest. News reports breezily convey the prospect of relaxed borders, a new amnesty for illegal immigrants and expanded free trade.

The California flag hangs upside-down in Glenn Spencer's hilltop home, the international SOS sign and the symbol, he says, of a state with its priorities topsy-turvy. Until now, that is. Spencer said last week's passage of Proposition 187 has given California a chance to survive--by barring illegal immigrants from most government services. Passage of the initiative also culminates two years of effort that began on the patio of his Sherman Oaks home.

Feinstein's plan to use quotas to fill jobs in her administration should disqualify her from holding the position of governor of California. I can think of nothing that would undermine the authority of state officials more than to have a quota system. It is a totally unsupportable position and it strikes at the heart of our free society.

I was wrong. After listening to the Iran-Contra hearings in their entirety, I was convinced that Poindexter was lying when he said he didn't inform the President about the diversion of funds. Now I learn that Nixon believes that Poindexter and North should be pardoned. I had believed that to pardon Poindexter would end any chance that the truth would be learned, but how can I disagree with the moral leader of the Western world? GLENN SPENCER Sherman Oaks

After listening and watching most of the proceedings over the last two months (I work at home), the truth of what happened became crystal clear to me. Ollie is a good, if not over-achieving Marine cannon. Poindexter is a brilliant and loyal officer. Casey was the loose cannon. Atty. Gen. Edwin Meese III didn't really understand the significance of what was happening. And last, but not least, Reagan made all of the basic decisions and approved of the whole deal--including the diversion of funds.

Re "Reassessing Valley's Melting Pot," Dec. 29. Professor [Roger] Waldinger tells us, "I suspect that ethnic mixing will prove a transitory phenomena, to be swept away by the large number of new Latino immigrants who are sure to come." In other words, we are in a transition phase and the San Fernando Valley is about to become a northern suburb of Mexico. Welcome to 1997, Professor Waldinger, and so long Mr. and Mrs. America. As you point your U-Haul out of Los Angeles, ask yourself how a nation could be so stupid as to allow itself to be overwhelmed without even putting up a fight.
