"Quills," Philip Kaufman's new movie about the Marquis de Sade, is a parable masquerading as a costume drama. Set in Napoleonic France but directed at Clintonian America, the film tackles an issue that leaped to the foreground of the recent presidential campaign: how to calculate the social effect of sex and violence in popular entertainment. "Quills" treats the last of the marquis' 27 years in captivity with a scenario that seems like an experiment in Hollywood hybridization.

Through six innings Wednesday night, Yasiel Puig was hitless. But then, the Dodgers nearly were too. San Diego's Jason Marquis had not allowed a hit until Skip Schumaker doubled with two outs in the bottom of the sixth at Dodger Stadium. He walked consecutive batters in the fifth to lose his bid for a perfect game. Marquis, 34, had allowed seven runs in the 8 2/3 innings of his last two starts, but has been in command throughout Wednesday. Puig is 0-for-3 with two groundouts and a strikeout.

Not content to simply explore the life and philosophy of the celebrated Marquis de Sade, "Quills" soon becomes a sadistic experience in its own right. Experiencing this pretentious wallow--overwritten, under-thought and overdone--is a very sophisticated form of torture. For if the marquis, his scabrous thoughts on pleasure and pain notwithstanding, was nothing if not genuine, "Quills" is a smug fraud that indulges in the worst kind of pretense.

USC's roster, in flux because of NCAA sanctions, came into clearer focus Friday when Coach Lane Kiffin announced that cornerback Isiah Wiley was academically ineligible for the season and that linebacker Marquis Simmons and cornerback Brian Baucham had been cleared to play. USC has until Monday, the first day of fall semester classes, to have its roster at 75 scholarship players, 10 fewer than the allowable maximum. Kiffin again declined to specify how many players were on scholarship, but the Trojans are apparently hovering at a few below their NCAA-mandated limit.

Is Mercury headed for the junkyard? Speculation is mounting that Ford Motor Co., preoccupied with reviving its Ford and Lincoln brands, might decide to retire the Mercury nameplate rather than spend scarce resources trying to restore its former luster. Despite denials from Ford, the conjecture got a boost last week when Jerome York, a former auto executive and advisor to billionaire investor Kirk Kerkorian, said shedding the brand would be a smart move for the struggling automaker.

Father Clif Marquis' article, "Sorting Out Religion, Politics and History" (Commentary, Nov. 23), is an awe-inspiring, poignant, powerful statement (made the more forceful by Conrad's cartoon alongside) reminding us of the historical imperative to protect our vital church-and-state separation of powers. Those who seek to do otherwise sow the seeds of historical regression, which would destroy hard-won personal liberties in the name of "saving our souls"! SHELDON H. KARDENER Santa Monica As a fellow Catholic, it saddens me greatly that Marquis would stoop to such a mean-spirited attack on the religious right of this country.

Thompson should have had his head down feeling sorry for himself after an interception and fumble had cost his team dearly. But there he was in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter firing clutch pass after clutch pass during a 70-yard drive that culminated with an eight-yard touchdown pass to Geno Hall to put the Cougars on top by a single point with 2:33 left.
