Your editorial "Lids for the War Chests" (Feb. 7) was most timely and welcome. In the past few months I have had correspondence with Sens. Robert Dole (R-Kan.) and Pete Wilson (R-Calif.) on that very subject. Not too surprisingly, I received almost identical responses giving their reasons for their continuing support of the filibuster that has held S 2 (bill to set limits on campaign spending) hostage for so long. As a matter of fact, the two responses looked as though they had been produced by the same computer.

Los Angeles rained out-of-towners this week, as everyone from Sen. Robert Dole to Hubert Humphrey III to Picasso (on film) made forays futilely timed to coincide with perfect California weather. Of course, the skies just have to clear for next week's filming of the "Wedding of the Year"--the remarriage of "Dynasty's" Jeff Colby and Fallon Colby.

Everyone is always getting a bad rap. Take Rush Limbaugh, for example. Limbaugh vigorously protested when President Clinton appeared to include him when recently describing radio talk show hosts as "purveyors of hatred." The nerve! No wonder Limbaugh was peeved. As viewers of television now know, far from being a purveyor of hatred, Limbaugh is a purveyor of neckwear.

Perhaps the Doles (Sen. Robert Dole, R-Kan., and former Secretary of Transportation Elizabeth Dole) would have a better chance of getting to the White House if she became the presidential candidate and he gave up his job in the Senate to help his wife campaign. SUSAN LESLIE SMITH Arcadia

During Schmertz's 22 years with Mobil he spearheaded the company's "Masterpiece Theatre" and "Mystery!" series.

Final action was expected by week's end. Congressional offices have been flooded with protest mail since the record-keeping requirements went into effect Jan. 1.
