Because of the dollars and cents involved, it was perhaps as clear a sign as any of the end of the Cold War: an American professor in Moscow teaching Soviet businessmen how to outwit their American counterparts. The Soviets seemed more than willing to put aside ideological questions of capitalism versus communism in favor of issues viewed as far more important--how to use the glassy stare or the pregnant pause to clinch a profitable deal.

Marcia Bates' comments (Letters, Oct. 17) regarding my article are well received. However, I must take issue with her main point that translation of scientific journals is a viable alternative. She refers to the "thousands" of foreign journals already translated into English. Contrarily, Prof. David Teece at the UC Berkeley School of Business reports: "Only 4% of Japan's important technical literature is translated into English. That's one of the reasons why the Japanese know us so much better than we know them, and why it's so difficult to redress the balance.

I agree with John L. Graham ("Learn Foreign Languages . . .," Op-Ed Page, Oct. 8) that American science and industry need to pay more attention to innovations published in foreign journals, but I do not agree with his solution. He proposes that students should learn more foreign languages in order to read this literature. With valuable research appearing in languages as diverse as Japanese, German and Russian, however, requiring science and engineering students to learn these numerous languages is not a cost-effective solution.

With two special guests this month and next, UC Irvine makes itself a little larger on the world peacemaking map. Mikhail Gorbachev, the former Soviet president whose political reforms helped spark the collapse of communist governments in the 1990s, will be at the Irvine Barclay Theater on Tuesday night to accept UCI's inaugural Citizen Peacebuilding Award. University officials said they were honoring Gorbachev, who received the 1990 Nobel Peace Prize, for his contributions to world peace.

Even as county transportation officials are soliciting bids from construction companies to build the Metro Green Line, aviation authorities are concerned that the automated light-rail line will pose a hazard to navigation as it skirts the east side of Los Angeles International Airport.

Re "Hawaii Flights Approved, but Don't Pack Yet," Feb. 7: So Bruce Nestande thinks that South County opposition to an El Toro international airport is irrational. What about those who are opposed to John Wayne's expansion? Are they irrational as well? Anybody who does want a new or expanded airport to destroy his community is irrational, Bruce. And I'm not being paid to promote this view, as you are. KURT PAGE Laguna Niguel A reminder to Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Cynthia P. Coad regarding the proposed Hawaii flights from JWA: Better take a flight aboard the airline before permitting such flights.

Re "Both El Toro Camps Cheer FAA Report," Oct. 10: Only a complete fool, or one of our pro-airport supervisors, could take the Federal Aviation Administration's stinging condemnation of the entire El Toro airport plan as good news. For example, the report notes that the results of the additional analysis indicate that, while the proposed civilian aircraft operations at the former Marine base can be conducted in a safe manner, overall system efficiency in Southern California will be affected.

Lee Kum Kee oyster sauce--a mild-tasting mixture used in Oriental dishes--had been sold in Asian stores for nearly a century when its Hong Kong maker went after the U.S. mass market. But the effort failed, and the reason, as it turned out, was not the product. It was the label. "We found out American consumers did not understand the labels that we had," said David W. H. Lee, who heads Lee Kum Kee's U.S. subsidiary based in Alhambra. So, with the help of S&O Consultants Inc.

For 15 years, John L. Graham has studied American business practices and compared them to those in Asia. His findings: Americans tend to be too blabby, too impatient and too informal for Asian tastes. Graham, a professor of marketing and international business at UC Irvine, first examined differences between Americans and Japanese for a doctoral dissertation in 1976. Since then, Graham has studied Korea, China, Taiwan and Hong Kong as well as a number of European and Latin American nations.

There was no election day cease-fire in the back-biting Republican brawl to replace retiring Rep. Ron Packard (R-Oceanside), a race that remained too close to call early this morning. In a high-stakes primary expected to decide the ultimate successor in the conservative district surrounding Camp Pendleton, charges of slander and illegal politicking ricocheted between the two front-runners, car alarm mogul Darrell Issa of Vista and state Sen. Bill Morrow of Oceanside.
