President Ronald Reagan's appointment of Lauro F. Cavazos to the position of secretary of education was indeed a great and good selection. It is a pity that in his column, Frank del Olmo describes the appointment as "symbolic at best, and down right cynical at worst" ("Appointment of Cavazos Is Hollow Gesture Now That Reagan Has Gutted Agency," Op-Ed Page, Aug. 12). In his desire to attack President Reagan, Del Olmo demeans the abilities and qualifications of a great American of Mexican heritage.
