A government spokesman said Friday that Hungary's Supreme Court will review the trial of the late Cardinal Jozsef Mindszenty, who was sentenced to life in prison on trumped-up charges of treason. The government action is considered to amount to Mindszenty's de facto posthumous rehabilitation. Spokesman Zsolt Bajnok said the government also decided to rehabilitate about 100,000 Hungarians deported or interned in the early 1950s under the Stalinist rule of then-leader Matyas Rakosi.

We have ample precedent for sheltering Fang Lizhi and his wife, Li Shuxian, in the U.S. Embassy at Beijing. For 15 years--from 1956 to 1971--the U.S. gave refuge to Hungarian Cardinal Jozsef Mindszenty in the U.S. Embassy at Budapest. Don't give up Fang and Li! LEO E. PERSELLIN Rancho Palos Verdes

Cardinal Franz Koenig, a church diplomat who helped set Vatican policy toward other religions and postwar communist regimes, died Saturday. He was 98. Austrian radio reported that Koenig died in his sleep in Vienna. No precise cause of death was given. The famed Pummerin bell in Vienna's downtown St. Stephen's Cathedral rang Saturday morning in honor of Koenig, who was widely revered in overwhelmingly Roman Catholic Austria even after his age-mandated retirement in 1985.

Elizabeth Jensen's paean to miniseries producer Robert Halmi Sr. ("He Has a Most Storied Life," Oct. 31) surprised me with the accuracy of "he bluffed his way into a full-time career as a producer, starting with bread-and-butter two-hour TV movies." It's true. I was there. Leon Memoli, a New York colleague of mine in the William Morris Agency, called me at the West Coast office and asked that I meet "our client," a New York documentary producer whose only claim to fame was a syndicated show about animals.

Some of the gleaming copper boxes tucked in the dim nave of the First Hungarian Reformed Church are empty now. The ashes of those who refused to be buried in a Communist Hungary have been returned to their newly free homeland. Down the street, Edward Weiss gets a knock on his door about once a week from a just-arrived young Hungarian looking for work in his family's 100-year-old specialty food shop.

George Shannon, playing the entitled salesman in "Spratt," at the Burbage Theatre Ensemble, makes Willy Loman look like Donald Trump. What's fascinating about Shannon's repulsive, macho performance is its risk--this is not a hollow salesman with a smile and a shoeshine but a buttocks-pinching male chauvinist with a sleazy grin and a yellow pallor. Shannon's overkill turns a hackneyed play about a dreadful, frail huckster into low comedy.
