IT was 1973, and eccentric billionaire Jean Paul Getty was planning an ambitious folly for his property in the Palisades: a precise replica of Villa dei Papiri, a grand home destroyed in Herculaneum in AD 79, that would house his collection of Greek and Roman antiquities. He hired the architectural firm of Langdon Wilson to create the villa, and noted landscape architects Emmet Wemple and Denis Kurutz to design the 64 acres around it.

We were glad to see Patricia Ward Biederman's article on the Getty gardens. (Times, Aug. 30) From your headlines, readers may get the mistaken impression that Michael DeHart, our excellent horticulturist, does everything. In fact the gardens have been supervised since they were built in 1974 by Richard Naranjo (mentioned mistakenly as having been born in Mexico). Mr. Naranjo oversees a staff of 12, including Michael DeHart, whom he hired recently. It is to Richard Naranjo and his remarkable staff that our visitors should be grateful.

RE "Getty's Constant Gardener" [Jan. 12]: The first time I visited the museum in the early '80s I almost didn't have time to go inside because I was so amazed by the gardens -- particularly the herb garden -- that I spent most of my time out there. Nice to see Richard Naranjo getting his due for his fine work. MIKE O'CONNELL San Gabriel THANKS so much for the wonderful piece on Richard Naranjo. Not only did it pay tribute to a talented man, it also gave much insight into the background of the villa and Getty Center that are not commonly known by much of the public.

The other two ended in punts. Altogether, the Chargers had five turnovers.

The mother of a 13-year-old Pony League player convicted of murdering another boy with a baseball bat said angrily Friday that her son did not receive a fair trial. "It was one-sided," said Gigi Harris in a telephone interview from her Palmdale home, one day after her son was sentenced to 12 years in the California Youth Authority, the maximum possible term for an offender his age. "We didn't think it was fair at all."

If catchers who hit well are a luxury, the Marmonte was one lavish league this season. Four Marmonte catchers batted better than .400--Newbury Park junior Robert Fick (.460), Simi Valley senior Steve Bernstein (.456), Channel Islands junior Jose Gastelum (.433) and Royal senior Steve Talafuse (.413). Two others--Camarillo senior Robert Sanchez (.381) and Thousand Oaks senior Brian Sturges (.367)--were among their teams' top hitters.
