Justin Clark is taking it all in stride. A third-grader at Minnie Gant Elementary School, he had a busy day Wednesday. At 2:30 p.m. he received a trophy along with two other students for the team's second-place victory in an elementary school chess tournament. Later he helped instruct a class of chess enthusiasts--some nearly twice his age--at El Dorado Park.

A word about Michael Wilmington's May 11 article, "LACC Student Films a Breath of Fresh Air": If the reviews are at all reflective of the films, they are anything but fresh, apparently being the usual imitative mishmash of contemporary nihilism. In the same issue there is a smaller yet glowing review by Kevin Thomas of the Robert Snyder film "Michelangelo: Self-Portrait," a genuine work of art about a genuine artist. Seems to me you have your editorial priorities reversed.

Why did Andy Warhol paint pictures of Campbell's soup cans? Why not, say, cans of Chef Boyardee ravioli? Or B&M baked beans? Why not Alpo, one of the first commercially available canned dog foods? Alpo was manufactured in Allentown, Pa., across the state from Pittsburgh, Warhol's hometown. Supermarkets stocked lots of canned goods, circa 1960. Any one of them could have signified the ubiquity of commercial imagery in contemporary American life. Any one of them could epitomize modern mass production at its most banal.

"The Henry Miller Odyssey." "Anais Nin Observed." Masterworks. $39.95 each. It's a shame that PBS and Arts & Entertainment have never shown these or any of Robert Snyder's other documentaries (of Buckminster Fuller, Claudio Arrau, et al.), but thanks to home video, these intimate portraits will now find a larger audience.
