Two objects rest on the circular conference table in Mark A. Kroeker's Van Nuys office. One is the Mini World Atlas. The other is one of those little kaleidoscope-like gizmos with a prism that refracts an image a dozen different ways. They are there for a purpose. Mark Kroeker, deputy chief of the Los Angeles Police Department's vast San Fernando Valley Bureau, frequently refers to them when encountering visitors with a Valley-centric point of view.

In an expensive contest featuring more jabs than a prizefight, a crowded field of political veterans, neighborhood activists and muckrakers is battling for the Los Angeles City Council seat left vacant by the death of John Ferraro. Three of the 10 candidates have already banked more than $1.1 million combined for the Sept. 11 election. "People in the district are very hungry for a leader to come in who they can work with," said Joe Hooven, president of the North Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

Here's a cynic's response to the report on an unanswered question in dividing resources and services between the new [San Fernando] Valley city and the rest of Los Angeles ("Secession Report Called 'Full of Unknowns,' " March 30). Back in Germany, after 15 years of trying to manage East and West Berlin, they just built a wall. RICK ROFMAN Van Nuys

A day after releasing their vision for slicing off the San Fernando Valley from the city of Los Angeles, secession activists complained Wednesday that city officials are making it difficult to gather data needed for a state-mandated study of the proposed breakup. The secession group Valley VOTE hammered the Los Angeles City Council for adopting an elaborate system Wednesday to screen each request for information needed to complete the study. John M.

Before it even got rolling, the so-called revolution to break apart Los Angeles appears to be faltering. The problem is few residents seem to care, despite the claims of organizers that neighborhoods from San Pedro to Chatsworth are so frustrated with the city's dysfunctional government that the only way to fix it is to flee it. As secession advocates in the San Fernando Valley learned this week, the biggest obstacle to a new city is the biggest obstacle to a better city--apathy.

Los Angeles lags many smaller California cities in the competition for state and federal funds, according to a study underwritten by secession backers. Breakup advocates seized on the results of the study, released Monday, as evidence that the San Fernando Valley and Hollywood would be more efficient if they split from Los Angeles. Secession opponents, however, denounced the study as biased.

Opening a third front in the battle to split Los Angeles, secession leaders said Friday they have formed a group to bring together pockets of breakup supporters outside the San Fernando Valley and Hollywood. The secessionists launched the Alliance for a New Los Angeles even as they struggled to win over majorities on their home turf. "Folks have been working in other parts of the city but they have been on their own," said attorney Bob Scott, the alliance co-chairman.

One day after taking office, a Northridge assemblyman revived the hotly debated issue of Los Angeles city secession Tuesday by introducing a carbon copy of a bill defeated last year that would ease the way for the San Fernando Valley and other areas to secede. "It's Boland II in its original and pristine form," said Assemblyman Tom McClintock, referring to the author of last year's controversial measure, former Assemblywoman Paula L. Boland.
