The way Dr. Robert E. Litman sees it, the Los Angeles Suicide Prevention Center's problems could be resolved if the board of directors stopped engaging in "self-destructive" behavior. The noted psychiatrist who co-founded the pioneering center about 30 years ago claims that "useless management jerks have (squandered) all of the agency's money" in recent years. "It has been one mistake after another," Litman said of the board members. "They are incompetent."

I appreciated your lively report (May 8) on the Westlake Village rent control controversy, which will spill into court and may saddle residents with a $4-million judgment. Especially the quote from City Council member Franklin Pelletier, who declared: "We're dealing with human beings here, not property rights." Mr. Pelletier spoke more frankly than perhaps your reporter realized, since two of the three votes to renew the rent control ordinance came from council members who personally reaped tens of thousands of dollars in windfall profits when they sold their mobile homes in the rent-controlled park.

After 30 years of doling out advice to the depressed, the anxious, the worried, the lovelorn, the perplexed, the happy and the puzzled, columnist Dear Abby was left almost speechless at a dinner Friday night in her honor. The popular advice columnist managed some brief thanks after being praised at a black-tie dinner benefiting the Institute for Destructive Behaviors and the Suicide Prevention Center. And after it was all over, all she could say was, "I'm overwhelmed, really. I'm all choked up."

Half the telephone counselors who take calls from suicidal people at Los Angeles' nonprofit Suicide Prevention Center stayed away from their jobs this week as a longstanding dispute between clinicians and administrators intensified. "The decision to walk off the lines was an anguished one," said Phyllis Meisler, a spokeswoman for the group of about 40 volunteers and $6-an-hour part-time supervisors who refused to work.

Members of Irvine's Great Park Board of Directors adopted a conflict-of-interest policy Thursday after complaining that Mayor Larry Agran appeared to be directing business to one of his political contributors. Directors unanimously adopted the ethics guidelines after learning that city staffers had been directed on behalf of Agran to work with Raphael "Ray" Chaikin, who holds an interest in nurseries, on providing trees for the proposed Great Park.

Larry Agran, a home-grown politician credited for promoting Irvine's image as a prototype suburban Orange County city, is under fire for allegedly trying to use his mayoral post to enrich friends and political cohorts. Agran, an attorney, is the target of critics who say that a major political supporter may benefit by the creation of a city utility and that other associates may profit from a huge park project the mayor initiated.
