About 50 students picketed the office of Loyola Marymount University President James N. Loughran Thursday to protest his decision to deny recognition to a club for gay and lesbian students at the Westchester campus. Gloria Allred, attorney for the head of the Alliance of Gays and Lesbians, said the group is seeking an audience before the university's Board of Trustees at its March 5 meeting in hope that the body will override the president's decision.

In the wake of a student protest against alleged racism at Loyola Marymount University, President James N. Loughran met late last week with minority students who one week earlier had taken over his office at the Westchester campus. Although Loughran declined to comment on his discussions with the students until he had issued a statement to the university community, he said the meeting was mostly to confirm agreements made after the student takeover last month. In a statement, Loughran acknowledged that insensitivity toward minorities is an issue on the campus.

Loyola Marymount University basketball Coach Ed Goorjian maintained his tenuous hold on his job, at least through Wednesday night, amid a report broadcast by Chick Hearn before Wednesday night's televised Lakers game in which Hearn said that Goorjian was being replaced by former Laker Coach Paul Westhead. Hearn quoted the Santa Monica Evening Outlook in the report. Westhead, reached at his home, said he has "catagorically had no conversations with anyone at Loyola."

It is indeed hard to believe that "The Catcher in the Rye," "Of Mice and Men," "Huckleberry Finn" and "The Diary of Anne Frank," as your editorial asserts, "are still the objects of censorship in the nation's public schools." But it is not so much the censorship issue as your more sweeping remarks on "the purpose of education" that concern me. For example, you write: "Students should be taught the critical ability to evaluate different ideas and to come to their own conclusions."
