I can accept the fact that 51% of the Sept. 18 issue of the Los Angeles Times Magazine is devoted to advertisements. What I cannot understand is why you would expect any significant number of your 1.4 million readers to be interested enough in Jay Chiat for you to devote almost 20% of an issue to him.

My compliments on the upgrading in quality of the Los Angeles Times Magazine. Being a native of New York, I continue to receive the New York Times on Sunday, mostly for its magazine. Now it's a tossup as to which magazine to read first. In recent months, yours has been incredibly interesting and thought-provoking. Dr. William H. Parker Santa Monica

What an incredibly ugly picture to have on the cover of the Los Angeles Times Magazine, especially on Easter Sunday (April 11). Easter is supposed to represent the Resurrection of Christ, not some carnival figure. If you wanted to avoid any sign of Christianity, it would have been far more appropriate to have a cover celebrating flowers making their annual return. ALICE PIERRET Santa Barbara

Capturing the classic Southern California image was the challenge for entrants in this year's Los Angeles Times Magazine photo contest. The winning photos shown here were selected from more than 1,500 pictures whose subjects included pets, Rose Parade floats and, of course, sunsets, kids and beaches. The top four photographers received cash prizes of $1,500, $750, $500 and $250. The contest was judged by members of the magazine staff.
