OPINION

Re "Marines Take Up Fight on Postwar Stress," April 2: There are any number of catch phrases to describe psychological treatment for war veterans, such as Chaplain Smith's "You need to take out the garbage before it lowers the property values." The one I like best is from Dr. Richard Mollica at Harvard who said, "The best antidepressant is a job." Whatever short-term "warrior transition" approach is used, it had better be followed up by longer-range programs to assure that combat veterans get good jobs after leaving the service.

Re "What money can't buy," Column One, June 12 All James Leininger has been able to do with his $100-million investment to transform Texas is help elect the governor, lieutenant governor and House speaker, put Republicans in charge of the Legislature and the state Board of Education and allow business-friendly judges to take over the Texas Supreme Court. But he has failed to get a school voucher program. How reassuring it is to know that money can't buy everything in politics. JAMES FREED Santa Monica I was fascinated by the juxtaposition of Jonah Goldberg's June 12 Op-Ed column, "Do away with public schools," and the Column One on Leininger's so-far failed attempts to get the Texas Legislature to pass a voucher program.

As a practicing architect of Yugoslavian descent, I found Joseph Giovannini's article about the new Holocaust Museum ("The Architecture of Death," April 18) both ironic and provocative. Architect James Freed, himself a Holocaust refugee, has, re-created the experience of Dachau and Buchenwald for modern visitors. However, by adopting such a literal approach, he has missed an opportunity to address a more universal statement against racism and genocide. Unlike the Vietnam War Memorial, which, by its strong iconic presence, speaks symbolically against all wars, the Holocaust Museum seems to freeze in time the experience of the death camps and becomes more of a time capsule than a true museum.

There's more to America's forests than trees, a fact well appreciated by entrepreneurs cashing in on woodland products once overlooked or regarded as weeds. In Georgia's pine forests, needles are scraped from the ground and bagged for landscaping mulch. The evergreen woods of northern New England yield a bounty of Christmas greens. And the harvest of medicinal herbs, from goldenseal in Indiana to ginseng in West Virginia, is riding a wave of interest in natural remedies.
