Leave it to a conservative (Roger Hedgecock, "Liberals Surrender in Philadelphia," Commentary, May 6) to mangle the principle behind the recent volunteers summit and to claim a victory over Big Government where there was none. It was government that served up its people on the sacrificial altar of altruism by claiming that volunteerism was a "duty" and a "moral obligation." That was the principle behind the summit.

Roger Hedgecock may be wearing a media badge here at the Republican convention, but he is careful to let you know--right up front--that he's not part of that media. No, he is not one of the "phonies," as he puts it, not one of "the high priests of journalism who try to tell you what is news." Hedgecock, instead, represents what he calls the medium of the future--talk radio.

What a difference a decade makes. Ten years ago Dist. Atty. Edwin L. Miller Jr. was in headlong prosecutorial pursuit of Mayor Roger Hedgecock, a battle that raged daily in the courts and the media. Miller emerged triumphant and Hedgecock was ousted from office, protesting that he was the victim of a vendetta by his political enemies, Miller and the press.

Three for the record. * The common wisdom has been that the videotape made of Robert Alton Harris' execution will not bolster the ACLU claim that the gas chamber is a cruel and unusual method of execution. Harris, after all, did not thrash and scream. Yes, but those familiar with the tape say the treatment of Harris' body after he was pronounced dead may prove more shocking than his death throes.

Former Mayor Roger Hedgecock, ending months of on-the-air hints that he would again seek city government's top post, announced that he will not join the campaign to succeed retiring Mayor Maureen O'Connor. In an on-air news conference, Hedgecock said he had concluded he could better serve San Diego by continuing to host his popular morning radio call-in show and his afternoon television program.
