"The Attack of the Dumb-Boy Jokes" (by Amy Ephron, Palm Latitudes, Jan. 31) was in rather poor taste. How can a newspaper that has called upon baseball to punish Marge Schott for alleged racial remarks print such bigoted material about boys. Only a joke? Perhaps Schott, too, was only joking. Maybe making fun of boys is simply acceptable among the politically correct. Can we expect to see jokes about gays, women, Jews and the physically handicapped in the future?

John Schroeder said his alignment feels off when he gets over putts and that it takes a leap of faith to stroke each one, but he can't question the results. Schroeder one-putted his final six holes Friday during the first round of the Champions Tour SBC Classic at Valencia Country Club, made eight birdies and shot six-under-par 66 to finish a shot behind leader Gil Morgan. Tom Purtzer, who had a hole in one, and James Mason shot 67. Sammy Rachels and Allen Doyle were at 69.

The rust on the irons and woods John Schroeder totes in his bag isn't visible to the naked eye, but it's there. Fourteen years' worth. Schroeder didn't notice it himself until he reached the eighth hole of Saturday's second round of the Toshiba Senior Classic. He teed off in second place, five strokes under for the tournament, two strokes behind leader Jim Colbert. Hovering over the ball, he suddenly became distracted. That name way up there on the leader board. S-C-H-R-O-E-D-E-R.

Who's a jury to believe? A convicted felon and snitch who was drunk when he was beaten up in a bar? Or a biker called Indian Dave and the owner of the bar, a hangout for the Hells Angels? A Van Nuys Superior Court jury believed the intoxicated felon, a Canoga Park man. In a verdict filed Monday, jurors unanimously found that Chuck Smith, 61, deserved $592,000 for injuries he received in a fight last June at the Canby Sweet bar, in the 7200 block of Canby Avenue in Reseda. Smith suffered a ruptured spleen, punctured lung and broken ribs in the fight.

Blinded by a still-mysterious attack in a Fontana hospital, a 34-year-old man who underwent surgery at UCLA Medical Center is "doing extraordinarily well," said his surgeon, Dr. Steven Schwartz of UCLA's Jules Stein Institute. Stephen Solomon, who had been stabbed in both eyes with a needlelike object, underwent surgery on his left eye last month, and has reportedly recovered 20 / 20 vision in that eye.

I am shocked and outraged by the recent defeat of the AIDS anti-discrimination ordinance by the Orange County Board of Supervisors. I'll be sure to remember them at the next election. I am equally shocked and outraged by the Board of Supervisors being swayed by groups which purport to be Christians and yet who seem to be closer in line to the biblical Pharisees rather than to Jesus Christ. Didn't Jesus Christ emphasize the importance of truth and isn't that a fundamental part of Christian theology?

It dismays me to see you continue to publish opinions "attacking" equal rights for gays ("We May Regret Going Along With This," by Tom Bethell, Column Right, July 8). Although I have long admired The Times' willingness to provide an opinion forum for all sides of an issue, I have never seen an opinion piece questioning the wisdom in granting equal rights to other minorities or implying some sort of "hidden agenda" on the part of those minorities. Let's fact it, opinions such as those are out there, floating in the minds and mouths of countless bigots.

Question No. 1: Is it possible, after a 4 1/2-year run at the Ahmanson Theatre, that anyone in the greater Los Angeles area who wanted to see Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Phantom of the Opera" has not already seen it? Question No. 2: If you answered no to No. 1, then who were all those people Sunday night at the Orange County Performing Arts Center for the opening night of the Orange County stop of the show's third--yes, third--national company? Question No.
