Re "Nobelist created economic models," Obituary, Oct. 22 Your recent obituary on Lawrence Klein, who won the Nobel Price in economics in 1980 for developing computer-based models that assist policymakers in forecasting economic fluctuations, failed to mention that he was a graduate of Los Angeles City College. As a one-time administrator at the college, about 10 years ago, I invited Klein to attend an alumni event to honor him for his achievements. He accepted and was very gracious, I remember, in recalling how the college's mathematics department and classes helped set him on his future road to success.

Klein's article ("It's Time to Look Closely at Banks," July 15) should appear in The Times Business section on the same day as Bill Sing's report on the takeover of the failed First National Bank & Trust Co. of Oklahoma City by First Interstate ("First Interstate to Take Over Failed Oklahoma Bank"). Sing's news item highlights the excellent points made by Klein. Of particular significance is the fact that the FDIC, in addition to paying First Interstate $72 million to take over the failed bank, will retain $418 million of the most hopeless loans made by the benighted lenders at First National Bank & Trust.

Nobel laureate Lawrence R. Klein presents a stimulating interpretation of Soviet motives in his article "Understanding the Russian Psyche" (Times Board of Economists, Nov. 5). The fears of Muscovites after the 17th-Century Polish invasion, which he describes, have been borne out since that time: The Swedish incursion in the 18th Century, Napoleon in the 19th Century and the Kaiser and Hitler in the 20th Century.
