The story "Five Players Give San Juan a Quiet Clout" (Jan. 4) contains a historical clinker by saying that Capistrano " . . . still has never had an elected legislative representative higher than a City Council member, not even a county supervisor." Wrong. In 1879 Richard Egan of San Juan Capistrano was elected supervisor of Los Angeles County and served from 1880-84. His district covered the bulk of the "Santa Ana Valley," the maiden name of Orange County before its deliverance from Los Angeles.
