In response to Lisa Dillman's article of Feb. 6, " '84 Lessons Affect Approach to '92 Woman's Final Four": It's so typical of women's sports. While a huge majority of the public has voted on women's college athletics with their dollars (they don't think it's worth it), Judith Holland, senior associate athletic director at UCLA and chair of the Division I women's basketball committee, is more worried about how "horrible" empty seats will appear on CBS than what steps to take to fill them with "paying" customers.

Giving soccer scholarships to softball players is deliberate cheating. Using a ringer such as Tanya Harding compounds the crime. What a lesson for the students. Taxpayers have unwillingly supported this perverted style of teaching and deserve a refund. From Sam Gilbert to Angelo Mazzone to Judith Holland, UCLA has shamelessly acted with a crazed lust for power in college sports. They have nearly forfeited their right to compete, and the NCAA has acted correctly. Let this lesson take hold.

Janet Evans slices through the water and America cheers. Florence Griffith Joyner races across the television screen and Madison Avenue applauds. Female athletes are in. They have become big time and command big bucks. But just beyond the glare of the Olympic flame, the glamour can fade quickly. Look beyond the stars of the Olympic Games, women's tennis and, to some extent, women's golf, and you'll find that no truce has been called in the battle for equality.

Wrestling, water polo, crew, it is just the beginning. It is a real shame to lose these amateur sports, but as long as the alumni at UCLA remain silent it is only going to get worse. The alums seem to howl pretty loud at football and basketball games. If they don't stand up and howl right now about Judith Holland and Peter Dalis and their mismanagement of this great athletic department, football and basketball are going to be the only games left at UCLA.

Despite losing its past two Pacific 10 Conference games to Washington State and Washington, the UCLA women's basketball team stands an excellent chance of receiving an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament if it can beat USC in its regular-season finale tonight at 7 in Pauley Pavilion. Win or lose, the Bruin women, 16-11 and 11-6 in the conference, are guaranteed to finish no lower than third in the conference.

Women's soccer at UCLA, a club activity since 1979, will be given full NCAA status for the 1993-94 season. The announcement came Tuesday from Peter Dalis, UCLA athletic director, on the same day that UCLA Chancellor Charles Young received a letter from a law firm demanding that the sport be elevated. The letter said that failure to do so would trigger a lawsuit by the Bruin women's soccer team charging a violation of Title IX, which guarantees equal opportunity for male and female athletes.

So Jim Harrick "Still Bears a Grudge" [Dec. 4] and wonders who UCLA is going to hire "knowing they fired four guys in 13 years." Well Jim, Billie Moore is no guy, and after early success at Cal State Fullerton and UCLA in the early days of the ascendancy of women's basketball, she let the Bruins slide into mediocrity, protected by women's Athletic Director Judith Holland. As for Walt Hazzard and Larry Farmer, does Jim suggest that they shouldn't have been let go? It was Jim who got the job when Walt was terminated.
