Your article (Sept. 5) on the demolition of the California Theater quotes me as saying, "It should come down." I did not say that and did not imply that. For two years my organization, the Los Angeles Conservancy, has led the fight to prevent the demolition of that theater. We stopped the demolition in the autumn of 1988. We worked for more than a year in seeking tenants for the building. Though we lost this particular fight, we remain unalterably opposed to the destruction of historic buildings of such significance, and would never advocate the demolition of the California Theater.

For years, the abandoned Uniroyal tire plant alongside the Santa Ana Freeway was a shabby monument to an era when a rapidly growing Los Angeles attracted the nation's major tire producers. The plant was boarded up in 1978 after tires were manufactured there for nearly half a century. Its windows were broken and its facade was dingy from exposure to years of freeway exhaust fumes.

Sam Roter writes, "Every time I see an old so-called 'charming Victorian' building, I think of broken bodies and crushed skulls," an outcome he believes inevitably will result from "our misguided taste for l9th-Century architecture" (letter, Nov. 23). As one who freely professes to that taste (and, by choice, both lives and works in historic buildings), I must take issue with Roter's determined ignorance about seismic technology.

Acuna claims that the draft request for proposals now being considered by the Board of Recreation and Parks seeks to impose a "Mexican-less vision of Olvera Street." He describes the message as being "In the case of Olvera Street: No Mexicans Wanted." But here is the actual wording of the draft request for proposals: "The City intends that commerce and rehabilitation recreate a distinct romantic Mexican marketplace atmosphere . . . on Olvera Street proper. An important objective shall be the maintenance, preservation and enhancement of Olvera Street as a viable example of the unique Mexican cultural heritage of Los Angeles as exemplified by its Mexican businesses."

Your article on conflict at the California Museum of Science and Industry failed to make clear just how important the contribution of the California Museum Foundation is to the quality of the institution. Virtually all of the resources for the renaissance of the outdated, run-down museum came from the fund-raising of the foundation under the leadership of Muchmore. It confirms our lowest expectations of state bureaucrats that they should be so antagonistic to a group of volunteers who have produced huge donations to support a state institution.

The recent announcement by the J. Paul Getty Trust of its new program for architectural conservation was, in my view, the latest example of the long tradition of community leadership exercised by the Los Angeles Times. That leadership and its role in this instance is deeply appreciated by all of us committed to the preservation of the city's masterpieces of architecture. The Getty Trust has repeatedly demonstrated concern for the community and a determination to use its wealth in a constructive way. Still, it seems very unlikely that it would have chosen to create this new architectural conservation program had it not been for the campaign waged by the Times' outstanding urban design critic, Sam Hall Kaplan.

The once-elegant Strong House, one of the few remaining reminders of downtown Los Angeles' Victorian past, would be relocated and converted to low-income housing under a plan being discussed by city officials and local preservationists. The plan to save the house is the most promising of several plans being considered by the city and preservationists as a hearing Wednesday on a request to demolish the structure nears, Jay Oren of the city's Cultural Heritage Commission said last week.
