That man would not have pushed Littwin if she were a man. And he couldn't have walked out of her class like a man, because he is a mouse. GARY BARRACLOUGH Lomita

The letter writers objecting to "Walk Like a Man" miss the point. The man disrupted the flow of her class by ignoring the instructor and expecting everyone to accommodate him. The aerobics class is a valid metaphor for our society, where many rude people do act like this. Though it's trendy to deny it, almost all of them are male. Articles like Littwin's are still useful.

Littwin gives women a bad name. She praises women for being self-conscious, self-effacing and for taking up as little space as possible. These qualities are not feminine; they are neurotic. She says she wants equality. She wants revenge. She went into that room spoiling for a fight, carrying a lifetime of anger. Then she did the equivalent of driving into a parked car, and blamed it on the car. Littwin claims she speaks for all women when she says women have spent most of their lives trying to be one of the boys, and that she wants men to behave like girls.

A proposal to kick military training programs off the Cal State Northridge campus appeared to have widespread support among faculty members Thursday, but when the issue was to be voted on the Faculty Senate did not have a quorum. If the Reserve Officer Training Corps is ousted from CSUN at the senate's March meeting, it would be the first time the program has been barred from an American college campus since the Vietnam War.

John R. Wooden, who died Friday at age 99, left for the ages an exemplary body of work in which the rewards, ten-fold, outweighed the trials. No rendering of Wooden's legacy, though, is complete without mention of a man who influenced one of sport's most unimpeachable dynasties: Sam Gilbert. If Wooden was the father figure of UCLA basketball, Gilbert was its shadowy one. Gilbert was a small, burly, self-made man with unfettered devotion to the Bruins. He could be benevolent yet, to nose-poking reporters, a bully.
