Opponents of Occidental Petroleum Corp.'s Pacific Palisades oil drilling plan are taking their fight to the courts and to Congress. Rep. Mel Levine (D-Santa Monica) said Tuesday that a House Interior subcommittee will hold hearings in Los Angeles next month on whether the Occidental proposal, which envisions drilling under the Palisades, could eventually mean increased chances for oil exploration in nearby Santa Monica Bay. Levine, a Palisades drilling opponent, had pushed hard for the hearing.

A citizens committee formed to promote Occidental Petroleum Corp.'s plans to drill for oil beneath the Pacific Palisades has been funneling company money into newspaper advertising aimed at the city's black and Latino communities, a financial disclosure statement shows. The pro-drilling group, which calls itself the Los Angeles Public and Coastal Protection Committee, collected $35,000 between Dec. 17 and Dec. 31--all of it from Occidental.

The Los Angeles Public and Coastal Protection Committee is an oxymoron. And this is my last 22-cent letter to The Times. ANGELO V. BORGHI Ventura

The Rev. H.H. Brookins is dead wrong and very divisive when he says the Occidental drilling proposal is a matter of "black vs. white" and "rich vs. poor." These accusations are irrelevant to this matter. Drilling operations and the additional traffic resulting to the Pacific Coast Highway will affect thousands of commuters. Industrial operations across the highway from one of our most popular beaches would offend everyone who uses them: black, white, rich and poor alike. An assault on the environment does not discriminate!

The letter from Laura Lake, of an organization calling itself "Not Yet New York," singles me out for comment as a member of the Los Angeles Public and Coastal Protection Committee. The letter says I favor "dividing the city" over the Palisades project. Not so. I think everyone in Los Angeles should join in the benefits that will flow from this drilling project. More than $100 million from the project will provide much needed police protection, better schools and teachers and other city services.

Political advertising aimed at persuading Los Angeles voters to support oil drilling along Pacific Coast Highway must state that the ads are paid for by Occidental Petroleum Co., a Superior Court judge ruled Monday to end a lingering dispute.
