I am sorry to see Rep. William E. Dannemeyer (R-Fullerton) drop out of the race for the U. S. Senate (Times, Feb. 11), for it means, considering the past performance of the voters of Fullerton, that he will probably remain in the House of Representatives. ARNOLD T. SCHWAB Westminster

The shame and embarrassment of being a constituent of Rep. William E. Dannemeyer is overwhelming. Every time the man opens his mouth, I cringe with horror. However, to compare Nelson Mandela to Willie Horton is sinking to an all-time low, even for Mr. Dannemeyer. I guess since President Bush got so much mileage out of Mr. Horton during the presidential race, Mr. Dannemeyer, not being a particularly clever man, figured it was time to dredge him up again. Well, Mr. Dannemeyer, you once again have shown the country what kind of person you are. You appeal to the worst element in mankind--ignorance--and my only wish is to suddenly make you black and living in Soweto.

Rep. William E. Dannemeyer has done it again. Instead of addressing the real concerns of the people of Orange County, by placing descriptive sex acts in the Congressional Record he continues his crusade of bigotry and hatred in attempting to limit the rights of a minority group. What else does this congressman do except to embarrass the people of Orange County and the state of California in front of the entire nation with his constant tirade against gay people? When will the people of Fullerton wake up and realize that this buffoon is doing them a great disservice by expending his energies on being homophobic rather than working on solutions to the problems faced by all of us.

Re "Dannemeyer Suggests Top-Level Gay Drift" (July 1): As Rep. William E. Dannemeyer (R-Fullerton) continues his pitiful publicity march against homosexuals, the family unit, which he contends he's protecting, stands alone in its effort to maintain the very fabric of its existence. Orange County families are on a daily battlefront facing the realities of unaffordable housing, drug abuse, chemical air pollution, inadequate day-care facilities, deteriorating public school systems and the necessity for two incomes to survive.

Low-flying, noise-polluting military helicopters have been a problem to residents adjacent to Katella Street in Orange County since August, 1973, when the Armed Forces Reserve Centers took over the Los Alamitos Air Base. In the beginning, their activities were minimal, but with each succeeding year, flight activity has increased, compounded by the activity of a dozen other airports using Orange County air space. An environmental impact statement was presented before the takeover, and despite protests from all but two of the cities that would be affected by the Reserve operation, the statement was approved.

AIDS activists were outraged Wednesday over the rejection of an anti-discrimination ordinance by the Orange County Board of Supervisors and expressed concern that landlords and employers may now think they can discriminate against people carrying the disease. "I think that, unfortunately, it sends the wrong message to people in Orange County--that it might even be OK to discriminate against people with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus, which causes AIDS)," said John Duran, an Anaheim attorney active in the gay community.

In a 3-2 vote before a tense and emotional crowd, the Orange County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday rejected a proposed ordinance that would ban discrimination against AIDS victims, making Orange County the only urban area in California without such a measure. The vote capped an 18-month study by the county's HIV Advisory Committee that concluded the ordinance was necessary to reduce the spread of acquired immune deficiency syndrome by making its victims more likely to seek treatment.

After reading the accounts of Dannemeyer's ravings about the menace posed by homosexuals and AIDS, and having lived in the congressman's district for a few years, I conclude that these reports reflect not only on him--the man has made no secret of his neo-Neanderthal views on life and mores--but also on the constituency that keeps sending such irresponsible Republican "looney tunes" to the government bodies designed to represent these constituents' views....
