Most high-level White House aides believed that President Reagan was so depressed, inept and inattentive in the wake of disclosures about the Iran-Contra scandal early in 1987 that the possibility of invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office was raised in a memo to Howard H. Baker Jr., then Reagan's chief of staff.

Re "UCLA to Protect Animal Research," Aug. 26 I wholeheartedly disagree with acting UCLA Chancellor Norman Abrams. I think it is reprehensible and morally wrong to torture another of God's creatures for our benefit, especially when the research results have been shown to be of questionable use to humans and it is essentially the same research that has been repeated for years. Abrams' comment that federal and state agencies regularly inspect such projects to ensure that animals are humanely treated is laughable.

Re "Teen Suicide and Feelings of Failure," Jan. 1: I am saddened and angry after reading about the tragic life and sad death of Velia Huerta Victorino. This poor soul was screaming out for help in the only way most adolescents know, but she was misunderstood or ignored and left to fend for herself. The only real chance she had was denied her by her absent and self-described devout Catholic father, who didn't believe in "giving kids drugs" and apparently sought religious counsel only after Velia's death when he was afraid she wouldn't see heaven.

Re "They scamper, we stalk," Column One, May 9 This informative article about the rodent problem in Los Angeles unfortunately left out the intense suffering these mammals experience as a result of poisoning and, even worse, glue traps. These smart, resourceful animals scream and will chew off limbs and skin in an attempt to escape the traps. They ultimately die of starvation or dehydration -- sometimes it takes days -- if they are not fortunate enough to be found and dispatched sooner.

The bipartisan group, whose advisory board includes many of the top officials of the Ford and Carter administrations, began its studies in January and plans to complete its analysis by Election Day.
