As he walked across the Los Angeles City College campus one day last week, Phil Pote was approached by two teen-age boys wearing baseball caps. They had just registered for fall classes and wanted to sign up for the LACC baseball team. They were in the right place at the wrong time.

Our entire relationship history can be summed up within a 10-mile radius. It starts in 1976. Paul and I were born at Kaiser Permanente on Sunset Boulevard, two weeks apart. He jokes that he winked at me as I was wheeled by. For a brief time, his mother worked for Pacific Telephone, the same company that employed my dad for 30 years. It wasn't until our junior year at Fairfax High School that we met. We wound up in the same English literature class, sat near each other and bonded over our mutual dislike for our disorganized teacher.

Southern California's oldest college gymnasium will host its final basketball game tonight when Los Angeles City College faces Ventura College in a Southern California Junior College regional at 7. Completed in 1935, the Cubs' cozy gym has been an effective force behind LACC's basketball success over the years.

I would like to commend the Los Angeles Conservation Corps (LACC) for its positive efforts in responding to the devastation following the riots in Los Angeles. The LACC, an independent nonprofit organization, provides job training and educational opportunities to nearly 100 youth and young adults, allowing them to put these newly acquired skills to work in their communities. The LACC is currently in the process of coordinating recycling efforts and renovating day-care centers and recreation centers.

The story on Esther Williams' treatment at the Los Angeles Country Club opened an old wound for me ("Esther Williams: Suiting Up Again," June 10). In 1976, I was an account executive for a public relations firm and had organized a luncheon at the LACC, where one of our clients was a member. When I arrived wearing an ultra-conservative Neiman Marcus pants-and-jacket suit, I was turned away. Fortunately, I lived nearby in Beverly Hills and could dash home and change. I was outraged, although I conformed, and became even more angry when the management permitted my boss--a man, of course--to sit at the luncheon in his tennis shorts and T-shirt.

Thank you for your May 12 Home article, "The Course Be With You," on Los Angeles City College's Community Services program. This program, which specializes in popular non-credit recreational and hobby classes, fully supported by participant fees, should not be confused with LACC's extensive academic credit classes. For the past 57 years, Los Angeles City College has been offering strong undergraduate education coupled with many innovative two-year career programs. Located at 855 N. Vermont Ave. in Hollywood, LACC offers approximately 2,000 classes a semester in English, mathematics, the sciences and social sciences, humanities, foreign languages, art and music--all of them transferable to four-year universities.

What's with all this doom and gloom at L.A. City College? Sure there are fewer students, but that's the case everywhere. As enrollments decline, so does our money. Your picture of LACC was far from complete. You neglected to mention some of the impressive successes recently achieved by the college's programs and students. For example, LACC's film students recently received widespread critical acclaim for their work. Our photography students took the most honors of any college at the local county fair competition and the student newspaper took second place in a recent collegiate competition.

I am writing to express my gratitude and admiration for the crew of young people from the Los Angeles Conservation Corps who were working on South Primrose Avenue in Alhambra last week. I have never seen such an impressive display of energy, endurance, cooperation and good will. Most of the homes on this block suffered chimney damage, with each chimney requiring the removal of several feet from the top. One was so loose and unsteady that it had to be completely torn down. The LACC crew used care and caution taking down the necessary brick-and-mortar parts piece by piece, so as not to damage any surrounding structures.

I am in total agreement with Warren Furutani's Commentary (Feb. 4). The recent decision by the seven-member Board of Trustees of the Los Angeles Community College District to fire new Chancellor Neil Yoneji is outrageous. Hired just one year ago after a national search, Yoneji has just begun to make changes in the district's educational programs and services. Enrollments on once-thriving campuses have declined to levels not seen since 1970. Many of the district's students have fled to neighboring colleges that offered more attractive and relevant educational programs at better and safer facilities.

Los Angeles City College President Jose Robledo has decided to push to retain the school's 63-year-old baseball program, reversing his previous stance. During a meeting with faculty and administrators Friday, Robledo proposed to develop a new plan to support the program, which was to be cut because of the school's budget woes.

[Regarding] "Say It Ain't So: LACC Reportedly Plans to End Baseball Program After 63 Years," [Sports, April 30]. Why is the program going to end when there are players that leave high school in the inner city that need a college plan other than a four-year school? The track record speaks for itself. The program has been amazing for 63 years. This program does not have to end. With more pampering, the baseball program at LACC can be revived. I think a committee should be organized to find ways to eliminate the negative aspects of the program and look at the positives it has done for the people and the inner-city Los Angeles communities.

Several sources close to the program confirmed the decision, but a formal announcement was not immediately forthcoming. "You have to wait until Monday before I can give you the official word," LACC Athletic Director Jack Boyer said.

Loyola High standout Moose Bailey scored 10 points and grabbed five rebounds in the AND1 Southern California High School/Junior College All-Star Classic on Tuesday at Cal State Long Beach's Pyramid Arena. Bailey and his White squad teammates may have lost to the Blue squad, 118-103, but the 6-foot-2 guard gained respect with his strong play, including a dazzling layup after a crossover dribble.

Successful alumni of Los Angeles City College's Theatre Arts program came back to campus last week, sharing their showbiz wisdom with film students as part of the program's 65th anniversary. In a forum titled, "Is There Life After Film School?" five directors and editors fielded questions from aspiring filmmakers who wanted to know how they got their big break. The speakers included 22-year-old Albert Hughes, who directed the critically acclaimed "Menace II Society" with his twin brother, Allen.
