Argue, was elected Monday as chairman of the board of the Amateur Athletic Foundation of Los Angeles, which disseminates funds from the Olympic surplus to Southern California youth sports programs.

Los Angeles lost a great man when John C. Argue died (obituary, Aug. 11). His life is a testament to the power of one. His leadership made a difference in scores of institutions, including USC, the Los Angeles Sports Council and the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce. His arsenal was his vast network of friends and acquaintances, whom he connected with each other when they asked or when he saw an opportunity. His intelligence, humor, integrity, selflessness and down-to-earth manner contributed to his influence and his impact.

The magnitude of the loss of John C. Argue to the business and sports community of Los Angeles may be best represented by his role in the events leading to this city's bid for the 1984 Olympic Games. Even more so, by what he did after those Games had been awarded. Argue, who died Saturday at 70 after an eight-month battle with leukemia, was a lawyer, businessman and educator.

The route from USC's fraternity row to the 901 Club on Figueroa Street is marked by broad painted stripes running three blocks, a symbol of the bar's importance to the social life of the campus' affluent "Greeks." The "9-Oh," as the raucous college bar is affectionately known, is where inhibitions, like IDs, are checked at the door. For one fraternity--the prestigious and well-connected Alpha Tau Omega house--it is a path well traveled.

The Los Angeles Police Commission does not have to be at war with the police chief to do its job properly (May 12).

I have noted your articles on Tom Bradley's travel. Without that travel, we would not have had the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, and without his travel, our tourism and trade figures in Los Angeles would not be as good as they are. JOHN C. ARGUE, Los Angeles

Add to aptonyms ("People With Aptonyms Have a Special Calling," by Lynn Smith, Feb. 16) the name of John C. Argue, attorney at law. I don't know what the opposite of aptonym is, but there is a Dr. John Gaunt in San Francisco who is a specialist on obesity. GLADY FOREMAN Los Angeles
