My compliments to Marita Hernandez for her article on Chicano studies programs (Part I, April 10). Seldom do we see that kind of serious treatment of the original reasons for Chicano studies and its subsequent importance to Chicanos and the rest of society.

The boy suffered multiple gunshot wounds about 8:30 p.m. Sunday as he and a friend, also 16, rode bikes on Lennox Boulevard.

Despite homeowner opposition to curbside job solicitation in Ladera Heights, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday rejected a proposal to ban day laborers from gathering near homes, schools, playgrounds and churches. Instead, the board adopted a much narrower ordinance that only forbids job hunters from gathering in commercial parking lots if signs prohibit the practice and if an alternate site is provided by lot owners.
