Three days after the launch of a citywide publicity campaign, the leader of an ambitious school reform plan on Sunday preached his message of revamping the Los Angeles public education system to a Pacoima church congregation. Robert E. Wycoff, chief operating officer of Arco, told a jammed, largely Latino Mass at Mary Immaculate Catholic Church that the best hope to jolt local schools out of their present crisis is through the high-powered coalition that he heads.

Thank you for your editorial ("Trust Reinstated," Feb. 28) noting that 83 cents of ever dollar raised by United Way of Great Los Angeles is spent locally on needed services. Last year, in fact, the local United Way distributed $67 million to more than 300 health and human services agencies in Greater Los Angeles, including 14 local chapters of the American Red Cross and 13 health partners. Even though our local United Way is completely autonomous from United Way of America, the recent controversy surrounding the former national president was a source of great concern to all of us. And while William Aramony has announced his resignation, a number of troubling issues remain concerning fiduciary responsibility at the national level.

On behalf of United Way and the more than 300 health and human service agencies and partners we support, I thank you for your Dec. 25 editorial, "Giving for All Seasons." The message was right on target with its description of how the recession has stretched community service agencies to their limits. One point that I would like to clarify is that the $12-million shortfall you mentioned was for our 1990-91 campaign year. The current 1991-92 campaign is on schedule to meet its goal of $88 million.
