Guitarist Chris Spedding had been playing rock 'n' roll for about 20 years when singer Robert Gordon called on him in 1978 to join the early rumblings of the American rockabilly revival. At the time, Spedding was one of the top session musicians in England, having played everything from lightweight pop with Gilbert O'Sullivan to heavy-hitting avant-garde rock with Eno and John Cale.

The interview of William Schwartz by Barbara Isenberg (Opinion, Aug. 9) was outstanding in clearly showing that the basis of the growth in medical care costs was the result of medical research, which provided the new drugs and new techniques that could treat more and more of our ailments and do it better. How do we determine how much of our GNP should be assigned to health care? If 6%-7% is OK and 14% is too much, then what would be our target and why? On a personal basis, the only limit for health care of a beloved is generally the availability of funds.

"An Attack in an Alley, and Then in the System" by Leonard Bustos (Commentary, Jan. 23) illustrates one of the reasons for the wide support for the voucher system: the gutless administrators who forget their responsibility to always take the fundamental, right action, even if not politically correct at the moment. They must teach, by their actions, that each person is responsible for his or her own misdeeds and will be punished accordingly. If the next school voucher proposition maintains the separation of church and state, I will now, for the first time, support and vote for it. ROBERT GORDON Arcadia
