John Anderson, the independent who captured 7% of the presidential vote in 1980, will appear this year as a Reform Party candidate on California's March 7 primary ballot. Although California Reform Party leaders asked the secretary of state to place his name on the ballot, he has not filed a statement of candidacy or set up a federal campaign committee. The secretary of state's office confirmed Anderson's spot on the ballot Tuesday.

In the stirring peroration to his speech at the 1984 Democratic National Convention, Jesse Jackson sounded a battle cry, "Our time has come! Our faith, hope and dreams have prevailed America, our time has come!" In 1988, Jackson will seek to prove that his time has come for the Democratic presidential nomination. Although listed as a front-runner in the polls, he complains that it is always with an asterisk. The asterisk refers to a notation: "without Cuomo."

Three of every four college-age women, whose bones are still developing, have low-calcium diets that contribute to lower bone mass, according to a North Carolina health researcher. In a study of 90 women ages 18 to 24, including many college students, 75% had low-calcium diets and low bone mineral density, increasing their risk of osteoporosis later in life, according to Dr. John B. Anderson of the University of North Carolina Health Sciences Center.

Tuesday is California primary election day.* Twenty-three candidates for president are listed on the California primary election ballot. Unlike previous years, this primary is open, meaning all the candidates are listed together and voters can cross party lines to vote for whomever they want. Some candidates on the ballot have already dropped out of the race, including Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, real estate mogul Donald Trump, publisher Steve Forbes and conservative activist Gary Bauer.

In what was otherwise a very nice article ("Singer John Denver Killed in Plane Crash," Oct. 14), we were reminded of the time that Denver stated that he believed he epitomized America; then, the article stated, "Or at least, white, mainstream America." Why did that distinction have to be made? I know that we whites are more responsible for the huge sales generated for every rap group. Does that make Notorious B.I.G. only for "white, mainstream America"? How many blacks bought Denver albums?
