But the message that jarred him awake at 5 a.m. on March 4, 1985, was one he would never forget. Cohen, managing editor of United Press International, listened in disbelief as an aide told him that the company's two owners had ordered a story to be run on the wire without consulting the news staff.

In response to Brown's belief that the names of our elected officials are more important than substance or performance, may I suggest that Brown change his name to Willie Jesus Bromberg.

It seems The Times perceives every disproportionate or excessive attack on Palestinian civilians only as a reaction to some Palestinian rock, bullet or mortar ("Mideast Awaits Leadership," editorial, April 19). An objective observer would certainly realize that the root of this problem lies in the 34 years of brutal and racist Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. To end the violence, Israel should end its occupation. SUZANNE ROBINSON Fullerton Everyone, especially the Israel bashers and apologists for Yasser Arafat and his terrorist associates, should read this editorial because it is very instructive.

In the wake of one of the most acrimonious election campaigns in its history, the Writers Guild of America, West, will hold a runoff for president Oct. 16 between former WGAW president Melville Shavelson and Richard Powell, the guild announced Wednesday. The election has been regarded by some guild officials as a referendum of its handling of contract negotiations with film and TV producers last spring and the subsequent firing of the guild's executive director, Naomi Gurian.
