Shame on you, Bobbi Fiedler, for not keeping silent if all you could do was bad-mouth former City Council member and veteran Congressman James C. Corman after he died (Obituaries, Jan. 3). I hate to even repeat the words you used to dismiss Corman's record of public service by calling him "a very far left-wing liberal . . . [and] a very skilled politician in those areas that he cared about: basically, increasing taxes to support welfare programs." Is that really all Corman meant to you?

The Mormon Church hierarchy, reacting to challenges to traditional doctrines about the Book of Mormon from its own membership, says it will not provide money to those who publicly discredit its teachings and leaders. Elder Gordon B. Hinckley, who has directed the daily business of the 5.8-million-member church for nearly 2 1/2 years for its ailing President Spencer B. Kimball, declared last weekend that the Mormon Church does not fear honest scholarship.

Even now, nearly a decade after voters in his San Fernando Valley district abruptly ended his 20-year congressional career, James C. Corman still wears his regret on his well-tailored sleeve. "It's just awful to be doing something you love and you think you do reasonably well, and it's all gone in one election and you can't do anything about it," Corman recalled recently over breakfast amid the leather furnishings and cherry walls of the sumptuous office where he works as a Washington lobbyist.

Twenty years have passed since former Rep. James C. Corman served the east San Fernando Valley, but he hasn't been forgotten here. Neither will he be with his death late last month in Arlington, Va., following a stroke at age 80. Corman represented the Valley from 1961 to 1981. A courtly man in a tumultuous time, he treated his constituents and congressional colleagues alike with old-fashioned graciousness. But he was steely in his dedication to civil rights and to the poor.
