It was 1:30 a.m. on primary election night and Sherry Bebitch Jeffe had gone more than two hours without checking for phone calls from news reporters. Dialing her answering machine, Jeffe, a Claremont Graduate School political scientist, was overwhelmed by what she found: 18 messages. Rather than wait for morning, however, the exhausted academician, who had been on the air all evening as a KCAL-TV election analyst, began ringing back those who might still be on deadline.

In an article in The Times ("Montoya Case: How Many Other Rotten Apples Exist," Part A, Feb. 4) I was quoted as saying "You can't regulate politics." Obviously, I didn't make my position clear during the interview, since many aspects of politics have been regulated--for years. On the contrary, the point I was attempting to make was that no set of regulations, no matter how stringent, would ever prevent a "rotten apple" from violating the law. My concern, particularly given the post-Watergate "reforms" at the federal level, is that the wrong kinds of regulations could have unintended consequences on the fairness and accountability of the electoral process; over-regulating honest officials while not stopping individual acts of corruption.

Anaheim officials Tuesday postponed voting on a proposal to ban prepared food at gas stations that sell alcoholic beverages while they review studies by a USC professor. Larry L. Berg, a consultant for the convenience store industry and director of the Institute of Politics and Government at USC, presented the City Council on Tuesday with results from various studies that he said proved "there is no hard data" to equate alcohol consumption and abuse with its availability at stores.

By a 2-1 margin, Californians believe that a judge should be "independent" from political pressures and not be held "accountable" at election time to the views of voters. These findings of a public opinion poll by USC's Institute of Politics and Government should be good news for California Chief Justice Rose Elizabeth Bird, who is emphasizing the theme of judicial independence in her bitterly fought confirmation campaign.

Southern California's role as a pioneer in cleaning up the air is tarnishing like shiny copper in heavy smog these days. Because that probably is what it will take to get the region back on the leading edge of smog control, we can only say to the critics, pour it on. A recent federal and state audit of the Southern California Air Quality Management District found the agency delinquent in a number of programs that must work if Los Angeles is to get significant reductions in smog.

Unlike a year ago, none of the seven local VHF television stations were planning as of Tuesday afternoon to air live complete coverage of today's State of the State address by Gov. Pete Wilson. KCAL-TV Channel 9, which last year preempted an "I Dream of Jeannie" rerun for the speech, decided this year that it would be "best covered within the context of its regularly scheduled newscasts," a station spokeswoman said.

A Colorado case now under review by the U.S. Supreme Court will be of considerable interest to Californians, for it could have an effect down the road on how groups gather signatures for initiative petition campaigns. With more than 30 initiatives either on the ballot or trying to get there in 1988, virtually any ruling on this issue will have considerable following in California.

Evidence is mounting that a chemical mix of smog and acid fog poses a far greater threat to human health than any one pollutant by itself, medical researchers told a state Senate committee Wednesday.
