As one who has taught in inner-city secondary schools, I believe the only lasting solution to the gang problem must come from the home environment itself. Therefore, those who reside in gang-infested areas must somehow be dissuaded from having all these children they can't adequately care for or properly supervise. Anything else is stop-gap and ephemeral. JAMES COYNE Santa Monica

Reflecting on some of the problems enumerated by Mayor Steven Gourley of Culver City that result from Latino immigration (Times, March 28), I might also add that as soon as these new arrivals become citizens, they qualify for all the benefits of affirmative action--a system set up to rectify past discrimination. Ergo, the Anglo male is pushed even farther back down the line. What kind of justice is this? JAMES COYNE Santa Monica

Is there really a sweeter coaching set-up in football anywhere than UCLA? One where the head man is paid more than the President of the United States for a seasonal job where nothing gets started in earnest until classes are out in the afternoon, excepting game days. Where there are seven or eight assistants who do the detail work. Where Westwood is a magic word in the recruitment world. I doubt it. JAMES COYNE Santa Monica

In reply to James Coyne's letter (Viewpoint, Jan. 31), it should be evident to even those with limited perception that in comparison to the President of the United States, Coach Terry Donahue should be earning more. His staff is obviously superior, as are his management skills. He operates within a budget, makes a profit, is a gentleman of high integrity and accomplishes his goals. That makes the score: Donahue 6, Reagan 0. BERNARD DIENER Hollywood

The Justice Department said Friday that it was withdrawing from involvement in a false claims suit in which a former employee of Hughes Helicopter Co. charged that the firm engaged in fraudulent pricing on parts for the Army's Apache helicopter. Department lawyers notified a federal judge in Los Angeles Thursday that, while a government audit of thousands of documents confirmed certain facts in the complaint, the inquiry did not produce enough evidence to demonstrate damage to the government.

If it's now our destiny to eliminate despots, tyrants and murderers in high places throughout the world, wasn't Saddam Hussein's place at the back of the line instead of the front? JAMES COYNE, Santa Monica

A Van Nuys man was killed early Sunday when his van drifted off Sepulveda Boulevard and smashed into a utility pole, Los Angeles police said. James Coyne, 59, was driving north near Stagg Street about 2:30 a.m. when the vehicle hit the pole, Officer Frank Zdroy said. Coyne, who was traveling alone, died at the scene. Zdroy said it was unclear why the van left the road but speculated that Coyne may have fallen asleep.

Comparing records of baseball players of two eras, e.g. Cobb and Rose, is rather meaningless because the conditions under which they played are not really comparable. The caliber of baseball in 1920 was probably no better than that played by a high school team in 1985. How would our Olympic track team of 1920 fare against our 1984 team in a dual meet? JAMES M.

"Would you really want to know?" The question often comes up in conversations about genetic testing, and many experts have thought that learning one had a cancer susceptibility gene might cause anxiety or depression. Those concerns may be unwarranted. Using psychological tests, questionnaires and interviews, University of Pennsylvania researchers evaluated 196 women with a risk of inheriting mutated BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 genes.
