Re "Perot to Stay in Race; Decision a Blow to Lamm," July 11: Ross Perot shilly-shallied with his decision to run again as the candidate for his Reform Party. Truth is, his super ego wanted and expected a clamor from the electorate urging him to declare his candidacy--which did not happen. When former Colorado Gov. Richard D. Lamm stepped in and offered to fill in the blank, Perot's response was predictable: Hey! That's my toy--you can't have it! Perot had some interesting and viable concepts for government reform or 19% of the 1992 electorate would not have voted for him; but his need for personal acclaim is so disagreeable his followers are having second thoughts.

I compliment Robert Dallek ("Against All Odds," Opinion, July 21) for his recognition that "there seems to be little question but that Perot is a spokesman for current public discontent." However, he goes on to say, "The deficit is not quite the problem [Perot] says it is." I find it astonishing that Dallek would make such a statement when the cost of interest alone for the national debt, which is largely the consequence of the deficits over the past 16 years, is approximately $260 billion per year, or $30 million an hour, 24 hours a day, 365 days per year!

A California Conspiracy by Richard Lamm and Arnold Grossman (St. Martin's Press: $18.95; 231 pages) The hero of this thin thriller is the governor of California. Not our own George Deukmejian, I hasten to add, but a dashing, handsome bachelor governor who, when he is not in the midst of affairs of state, is trysting rather torridly with a beautiful goddess of the silver screen.

My 103-year-old mother was in the hospital with pneumonia 15 days in October. The hospital bill was $22,329.10, which included $4,533.60 for pharmacy and $2,558.40 for oxygen, etc. This is an outrage! In last six years her $175,000 savings has been used up between pneumonia and nursing homes! She has asked to die but in vain. Doctors keep her alive. Former Colorado Gov. Richard Lamm is correct. Something has to be done! PHYLLIS CONROY SPEAR Laguna Niguel

Rep. Tim Wirth claimed the seat of retiring Democratic Sen. Gary Hart and state Treasurer Roy Romer won the governor's race as Democrats took two major victories in Colorado. Wirth defeated Republican Rep. Ken Kramer, a conservative from Colorado Springs whose candidacy received a boost last week with a visit from President Reagan. It was the second visit by Reagan to the state in as many months. With 75% of the vote counted, Wirth had 387,030 or 51% of the vote to Kramer's 370,205 or 49%.
