British singer Morrissey won an apology in a London court on Thursday from the publishers of Word Magazine over suggestions he was a racist and a hypocrite. The former Smiths frontman, who was not in court to hear the statement, is also pursuing separate legal action against music magazine NME for an article it printed last year in which he discussed his views on immigration in Britain. Caroline Kean, representing Word publishers Development Hell, said the company offered its "sincere apologies."

The San Diego City Council voted Monday to relinquish its interest in San Diego Physicians & Surgeons Hospital, eliminating the last obstacle to a sale of the ailing Southeast San Diego facility. Nationwide Medical Systems of Perris, Calif., has agreed to buy the loss-plagued hospital from its current operator, National Medical Enterprises, for $6.5 million. The firm will rename the hospital, which has lost about $20 million since NME took it over in 1982, as Christian Hospital of San Diego.

Your article on the Westside's Top-Paid Executives (Times, May 26) was most interesting. The fact that nine of the top 23 are executives of profit-making health care corporations (NME and AMH) while over 30% of Californians cannot afford either health insurance or adequate health care should give the public a very clear picture of one significant reason why our current health care system is in serious trouble.

The revelation that Richard Eamer makes $17.5 million per year as CEO of National Medical Enterprises and the second in command, Leonard Cohen, makes $8 million per year was certainly eye-opening and mind-boggling information. Though capitalism seems to be the best of all systems, and we in the United States are fortunate to have all that we do, there should be a social and economic conscience. Salaries of this magnitude are just not ethical or healthy in light of the current status of medical costs in this country.

Scott Rhine has a task few hospital administrators would find enviable. And last week he was given at least another year to carry it out. He heads an inner-city hospital where 95% of the patients either have no insurance or receive government coverage that is inadequate to cover costs, where 70% of the admitted patients come through the emergency room, and where many doctors have traditionally declined to send patients because of the location and the facility's checkered history.

"It's our job to serve the lives of music fans," enthuses Conor McNicholas, editor of the NME, last survivor of Britain's once-thriving weekly pop newspaper scene. "What they want to do is get close to the bands, hang out with the artists they love." It's crucial to the recent renaissance in a publication many thought doomed by the new millennium that McNicholas' fresh young team of reporters has shown the will, the instinct and the sheer 24-hour energy to create that exhilarating illusion.

The Federal Trade Commission on Thursday blocked, for antitrust reasons, National Medical Enterprises' proposed sale of six psychiatric hospitals to Charter Medical Corp. The FTC said the sale would have an anti-competitive effect because Macon, Ga.-based Charter, the nation's largest operator of psychiatric hospitals, would control too large a share of the market in the cities where the hospitals are located. The six hospitals are in Atlanta; Memphis, Tenn.; Orlando, Fla., and Richmond, Va.
