During 40 years with the National Park Service, Howard Chapman worked his way up through the ranger ranks, spending the last 15 years in San Francisco as the Western regional director--all, he says, without a blemish on his record.

The letter to The Times (May 31) from William P. Horn, assistant secretary for fish and wildlife and parks in the Interior Department, continues his efforts to mislead the public about his record of managing the National Parks, to wit: --Horn's reorganization of the National Park Service sought to place a career professional from the Fish and Wildlife Service over policy formulation in the Park Service.
