In a chain of events that began in 1947, the self-styled guardians of democracy who sat on the House Un-American Activities Committee have managed to reach out from their graves to kill 82-year-old screenwriter Paul Jarrico, precisely 50 years after they arranged his blacklisting by Hollywood's studios ("Writer Dies After Long-Awaited Triumph," Oct. 30). Had there been no HUAC, no hearings, Jarrico would not have been driving home, as he was, from a Motion Picture Academy blacklist remembrance ceremony, which would not have taken place.

The clamor in Eastern Europe for free elections ought to be echoed in the U.S.--Free elections instead of expensive elections! Stop the sale of our representatives to the highest bidder! And now that our "isms" are all becoming "wasms," how about new terms for left and right? Forward and backward? Up and down? PAUL JARRICO Santa Monica

William Pfaff seems to use the word ideology narrowly, limiting it to political doctrine, as in the "war of neo-conservatives with liberals." For cultural anthropologists, however, ideology is a system of meaning, construction out of all of an individual's beliefs and values, however illogical, however contradictory. Yes, ideology may well involve a political credo. But it also comprises tribal loyalties, religious convictions. And pledges of allegiance to talismanic flags.

Nora Sayre's piece on the campaign of the Writers Guild of America to restore blacklistee credits (Opinion, April 13) is right on, but in singling me out for having "galvanized" the campaign, she slights the guild's director of credits administration, Cathy R. Reed, and the other members of our blacklist credits committee, former guild presidents Del Reisman and George Kirgo. Sayre's piece, moreover, perpetuates one factual error. Though Albert Maltz has now been awarded the co-screenplay credit on "The Robe" that he should have had in 1953, he had nothing to do with "The Defiant Ones."

Editor's note: Writer Paul Jarrico, 82, who was nominated for an Oscar for "Tom, Dick and Harry" (1941), was killed Tuesday south of Oxnard driving home to Ojai from the second of two events in Los Angeles this week honoring blacklisted writers. Jarrico, who was himself blacklisted, was point man on a committee working to restore credits denied to writers who were blacklisted as a result of the 1947 House Un-American Activities Committee hearings led by Sen.

There was a single-vehicle fatality on the Pacific Coast Highway near Oxnard Oct. 28, and with it, in a manner of speaking, went the salt of the earth. The car carried 82-year-old film maker Paul Jarrico on his way home to Ojai from a Hollywood ceremony to (50 years after the fact) celebrate his work.
