Robert Toth, a pitcher at Pacifica High School, said Tuesday that his parents have signed a contract on his behalf with the Kansas City Royals. Toth, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound right-hander, was drafted in the 10th round by the Royals Monday. Because he is only 17, Toth's parents, Bob and Antoinette, signed for him. Major league rules require players to be 18 to sign a contract. Toth would not reveal the amount of his signing bonus. "I was surprised to get picked in the 10th round," Toth said.

I enjoyed reading Robert C. Toth's article " 'Finlandization': No Longer a Dirty Word" (Part I, May 28). However, there is something which might be clarified. One of the paragraphs begins with "The Finns, having fought World War II on the German side, were very careful immediately afterward not to antagonize the Soviets further." It is good to point out that the Soviet Union declared war on Finland on Nov. 28, 1939, and attacked them two days later. In his book, "The Gathering Storm," Winston Churchill describes it as an "unprovoked attack by the enormous Soviet power upon a small, spirited, and highly civilized nation.

An article by Robert C. Toth (Part A, Nov. 3) reported that "Bush, in announcing the summit Tuesday, made clear that the turmoil in Eastern Europe would be a prime topic of discussion during his talks with Gorbachev." Last summer at the third United Nations General Assembly Special Session Devoted to Disarmament, the delegations of the States Parties to the Warsaw Treaty submitted a memorandum entitled "Security Through Disarmament." In this document they included the statement, "The concept of security through disarmament is the philosophical basis of all practical efforts in this field laid down in the Final Document of the First Special Session of the General Assembly devoted to disarmament (Resolution S-10/2)

What if Secretary of State George P. Shultz or Defense Secretary Caspar W. Weinberger were ordered to take a polygraph test and "failed"? That is possible, even if neither man had done anything wrong or had anything to hide. Experts have told Congress that a polygraph can do little more than detect excitement. "An innocent person would be a fool to take a polygraph test, since there is a 50% chance of being branded a liar," said one witness, a former undersecretary of defense.

The satirical Parkinson's Law holds that work expands to fill the time available for doing it. The bizarre dialectic of strategic nuclear planning appears to have long held that the number of targets pinpointed for attack will increase as the production of nuclear warheads rises. About 12,000 U.S. nuclear bombs or warheads had been earmarked for about 8,500 targets in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.

In his article (Feb. 22), "U.S., Australia Wary of Soviets' South Pacific Role," Robert C. Toth quotes an Australian diplomat as saying: "French reluctance to give independence to New Caledonia is the greatest potential threat to regional stability in the short term." In view of the realistic title of this article, the Australian diplomat's quote seems about as believable as Hitler's claim that the Jews were a threat to the Aryan race in 1939.

U.S. officials, who last month were highly skeptical of East German leader Egon Krenz's willingness to yield to democratic pressures, are now hopeful that his relaxed travel policy will be the first step in a series of broader reforms. "We've had some promising indications, namely the announced intention by the authorities to liberalize foreign travel," White House Press Secretary Marlin Fitzwater said.
