Around his South-Central Los Angeles neighborhood, he was known both to children and cronies as Captain Louie, the friendly old gent with the naval officer's cap whose favorite line was "Hey, man!" and who liked to write songs about good lovin' and good times.

TULARE, Calif. - California's drought could prove devastating to the state's farmers and ranchers. But the dry spell has brought a gusher of new business to companies that provide them with water. That much was clear at this year's World Ag Expo, which kicked off Tuesday in Tulare, a town of 60,000 about 45 miles south of Fresno. At one booth was a well repair company that had to add extra shifts to meet all the agricultural demand for groundwater. Nearby, a firm that provides turbine pumps for wells said orders were coming in so furiously it was running out of parts.

Mike Boehm's timeline of Orange County rock 'n' roll history (Feb. 16) was of great interest to me since I'm researching a history on L.A.-area R&B groups from 1945 through '65. There's one piece of O.C. rock history not known by many but overwhelming in its legacy: namely, the Harmony Park Ballroom in Anaheim, where Richard Berry in 1956, after hearing the Rhythm Rockers (a.k.a. the Rillera Brothers, who later backed Dick Dale and the Righteous Brothers) perform "El Loco Cha Cha," took pen to napkin and created "Louie Louie."

I admire Judge Richard Berry's courage in suggesting cost and time-saving procedural changes in the selection of juries (letter, March 6). Trial lawyers who are paid stiff hourly rates are probably gnashing their teeth, facing the loss of all that sit-around-and-wait time. The lawyers' gravy train that passes as the legal system is becoming more wasteful and less effective every year. RUSSELL T. CONNORS Pismo Beach

Re "Clinton Unveils Deal to Stop Yellowstone Mine," Aug. 13: It seems so simple. If the mine near Yellowstone is legal, let them dig. If not, shut them down. Why $65 million in free federal land to a massive mining corporation? This is corporate welfare at its worst, hailed as an environmental triumph by a president who makes "Tricky Dick" seem a paragon of honor and virtue. RICHARD G. BERRY Manhattan Beach

So John Robinson prevailed. It is clear now that his triumph over the Ram front office was not the undiluted victory earlier reported. He seems to have agreed to sacrifice the jobs of some fine assistant coaches as part of the deal. Robinson selected those coaches, and for him at this juncture to determine that they are incompetent smacks of the rankest scapegoatism. Honor is said to be a virtue, but sometimes, I guess, it just gets in the way. RICHARD G. BERRY Redondo Beach
