In your July 10-16 issue of TV Times, it is stated in the interview with Alan Shepard that he was the first man into space. That is incorrect. The Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first man to go into space--a month before Shepard's flight--on April 12, 1961, from Star City, Russia. Chris Savard, San Clemente

The first stop in my personal westward migration was Colorado, where I concluded that barbecue did not exist in any authentic form once you crossed the Mississippi. I decided this after ordering a chicken sandwich at a barbecue shack in Boulder. The place looked so authentic, with its weathered wooden siding and its chimney puffing clouds of aromatic smoke, that my hopes were high. But what I got was a grilled chicken leg--grilled!--and still on the bone.

They're quirky, kinky, fast and in your face. They're supposed to tell the whole world, not just computer geeks, about that mysterious and much-hyped land called cyberspace. But what do America Online's new national TV ads really say? In one, a man in a tractor cap is sitting in his living room. He's staring into the extraterrestrial glow of his computer and poking at the keys with his index fingers. He's got a two-day beard, bad teeth and a psychotic grin.

I finally have something to laugh about concerning the fiasco over the sale of Bruce Springsteen concert tickets. Brian Murphy's justifying the 3:30 p.m. Friday afternoon radio announcements on eight radio stations as reaching "real" Springsteen fans, is a joke. Real fans are in their 30s and 40s and grew up with his music; real fans are at their jobs and can't leave; real fans don't always have access to a radio at work; real fans don't riot when given advance notice of ticket sales; all real Springsteen fans want is a fair chance at buying his concert tickets.

About that flu Magic Johnson had during Game 2 of the National Basketball Assn. finals: We're extremely grateful for his heart-of-a-lion performance on June 9, but he's giving mere mortals (those adept at finessing two weeks of paid sick leave out of the real flu) a bad reputation with our bosses. Tell us it was just a ploy to give the Pistons a few moments of false hope. He didn't have the real flu--did he? DIANE SHAFFER HOLDER Mission Viejo

The frustration, said Kimberly Watson, 28, who was being honored for arresting robbery suspects while being fired upon, was that "this will probably get two minutes" of TV attention, "while Mark Fuhrman gets a half-hour" on the nightly news.

Clusters of men, shirtless and barefoot, stand warily on opposite sides of a chalk line that divides a grass field. One of them inches toward the line, clasping his hands in prayer. Then he scurries across, only to be slapped and kicked to the ground by his opponents. The crowd roars its approval. The ancient Indian sport of k abaddi resembles, at first glance, nothing short of mayhem. And it looks all the stranger when played in a college football stadium south of Oakland.

Self-defense experts have a lot of advice for schoolchildren, women and outsiders who would venture into "bad" neighborhoods, but little of that seems relevant to the realities of big-city high school life. So we turned to students themselves and youth culture experts such as Marty Beat, editor of Street Beat magazine, to teach us their version of street smarts. A few tips: * Keep your head up, but don't stare at people. * Don't talk to or about people you suspect are gang members.

Carol and Jack Rubinoff have the wrong take on Jules Feiffer's May 7 cartoon (Letters, May 21). The current stratagem of conferring instant star status on almost every actor who has had maybe one leading role in a reasonably successful film has so cluttered the entertainment firmament that the field must be kept under nearly daily surveillance lest one of these "stars" go unrecognized. The age of the audience, while it certainly is a determining factor at the box office, will not prevent real stardom, name recognition, etc. Feiffer and the rest of us will know who they are. And how does an actor attain real stardom?

KO'd in his quest to be a boxing champion, Phil Paolina has become a trainer, Westside style. While many boxing establishments suffer from a seamy image, the La Brea Avenue club operated by Paolina, a 37-year-old Brooklyn native, is upscale, brightly colored and hip by design, as good for hanging out as for working out. The 7,000-square-foot Paolina Boxing Club, a former yarn store in a strip mall just south of Wilshire Boulevard, is dominated by a red, white and blue 22-by-22-foot ring.

Sometimes a break from bunk beds and dormitory rooms at youth hostels and budget hotels is a welcome treat. If you are between ages 18 and 26 and will be traveling in Europe, keep in mind that the Ibis hotel network offers youth rates on empty rooms after 9 p.m. Ibis is a network of about 400 tourist-class hotels, mostly in Europe. Its youth rate is only available to travelers who arrive without prior arrangements, and it's subject to the availability of rooms.

If you field a team, they will come. But not nearly as many as before. In years past, the Freeway Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and California Angels typically drew about 45,000. This year, with replacement players donning major league uniforms, only about 22,450 showed up Friday night for the exhibition rivalry, according to Anaheim stadium officials.

Despite what some non-Californians may think, it's not easy being a pagan in Los Angeles. The dark days of winter just aren't so dark in sunny Southern California. Grocery stores brim with fresh fruits and vegetables, whether or not you pray to the gods and goddesses for a good harvest. And then there are the urban distractions.
