I write to express my agreement with reader Sherry Quesada (Letters, Dec. 17) that the Travel section, my favorite part of the Sunday paper and largely the reason I subscribe to it, is shrinking in quantity and quality. I long for the olden days when Jerry Hulse was the editor and the Travel section was thick, informative, comprehensive and always filled with great stories and tidbits of insight. Your current editor and staff do a sufficient job, and they deserve praise. However, I think there is much room for improvement.

When I wake up on Sunday morning I head straight for this fine newspaper. I dig through it and pick out the comics, the sports and, yes, Calendar. In the olden days, when I got to the middle of Calendar, I would get up off the couch and take the Book Review to my mom because she likes to do the crossword puzzle. Thanks, you guys. Now I don't have anything nice to do for my mom on Sundays. JANET ALISON HARE Downey

Has the event we feared most finally come to pass? After all these happy months of beautiful covers, have you relapsed into that beastly black-and-white of olden days (which we haven't missed a bit)? Oh, must this be? Think, O Calendar, think of the hundreds of thousands of men, women, children and pets who shall nevermore, upon dismantling their Sunday papers, rejoice in the sight of lovely prints in vibrant colors gracing the front page of Calendar! Think of the sighs, the tears, the anguished wails as they realize that the days of color covers are gone forever!

History lovers sang two rounds of "Happy Birthday" under a blazing sun Saturday as they kicked off festivities for this neighborhood's 112th anniversary and California's 150th year of statehood. Flamenco dancing, mariachi music and a display of Native American artifacts were featured Saturday at the grounds around the Homestead Acre in Chatsworth Park South. The festivities continue today with scheduled performances by Scottish and Chinese dancers.

Well, that was your basic drubbing, wasn't it? In Game 3 between the men of the Port and the men of the Lake, it was a water-tight defense that made the difference for the winners, so don't go listening to any talk about "Showtime" having returned to Los Angeles. This one belonged to the Laker defense, not the offense. This was NO-time. This one was Sam Perkins taking charges and Byron Scott swatting shots and A.C. Green gobbling the 'bounds. NO-time.

It looks like a board of directors. It sounds like a board of directors. It acts like a board of directors. And, for all intents and purposes, the advisory committee organized last week by Berkman & Daniels, the local public relations agency, will function like a board of directors. Except for one little thing--the group has no fiduciary responsibility for the company.
