After watching last-minute losses against Arizona and Oregon State, one thing is painfully clear. UCLA is at a disadvantage whenever they set foot on a basketball court. The other team has a coach. RONALD LEVINE Reseda

Manny Ramirez -- Miss October. Ronald Levine Van Nuys :: We had been warned by his past teams, fans and players. But much like a new lover, we overlooked Manny's self-centered attitude. The honeymoon was great, Manny, but we caught you cheating and our relationship has never been the same since. Manny, we want a divorce! Ron Roberts Encino :: Plaschke, you got it wrong again, what a surprise! If Joe Torre wanted Manny in the dugout for the entire game Manny would be in the dugout for the entire game.

The editorial and Archbishop Roger Mahony's statement ("Mahony Assails Polish Prelate on Attacking Jews," Metro, Aug. 31) are refreshing counterpoints to the outrageous statements of Cardinal Glemp. Too often we are quick to condemn words of divisiveness, but slow to praise words of healing. Both The Times and Archbishop Mahony are to be commended for quickly repudiating words of provocation and replacing them with words of reconciliation. RONALD LEVINE Reseda

Ken Norton, Pete Carroll and the crybaby Trojans need to grow up. Norton lacked maturity when he was a player at UCLA and obviously lacks maturity today! Get out the world's tiniest violin. The less we hear you whine the better we like it! Mari Scott Redondo Beach :: In the war of words between Ken Norton and Rick the Slick, who would you believe? Dan Guerrero has made two football hirings and they both stink. Fred Wallin Westlake Village :: Rick Neuheisel has done off the field what his team could not do on the field.

I'm sure that the writers and producers of the Jan. 18 episode of "L.A. Law," which dealt with ritual circumcision, thought they were just having some harmless fun. Those who have attended such ceremonies know that the episode was pure fantasy. But those who never attended such ceremonies do not. The problem with racial, religious, ethnic and sexist jokes is that they rely on the kind of demeaning characterizations portrayed in that episode. No laugh is worth that. Ronald Levine, Reseda

A Huntington Beach man who was injured when his car was hit by a vehicle driven by a city employee who ran a red light two years ago has accepted a $75,000 out-of-court settlement. Samuel Eichler, 67, suffered shoulder injuries in the crash, underwent surgery and was confined to his home for six months while recuperating, his attorney, Ronald Levine, said. Eichler has "pretty much" recovered from the Oct. 12, 1983, accident but is still unable to do strenuous activities.

Can we please lay off Coach Harrick? After seven years of pressuring him to win a national championship, less than a week after he does, we're pressuring him to win another? UCLA dynasty? Impossible due to the parity in college basketball today. I wish Coach Harrick all the success in the world next year, but I will not ask him to hang another banner. All I ask is that he be a more gracious defending champion than his predecessor, Nolan Richardson. DAVID JANKOWSKI La Palma On this day of Passover, let us give thanks to Jim Harrick and his Bruins, who, without Tyus' mighty right hand, but with Ed's outstretched arm, brought us from sorrow to joy, from mourning to festivity, from darkness to great light and from bondage to redemption.

Just a few short weeks ago, Mitch Kupchak was skewered by Lakers fans. Then, he steals Trevor Ariza and suddenly the Lakers are challenging the elite teams in the West. What's more, players on the Lakers bench, the best in the NBA, were all secured by Kupchak. From dunce to genius. Go figure. Ronald Levine Van Nuys -- The Lakers are ready to contend for the title this season and for the next 10 years. What other team in the NBA can say that? Thanks, Mitch Kupchak.

People tell me that you print only negative letters about UCLA athletics. I can't believe that. However, I have noticed that since all the letters bombarding Coach Harrick and Athletic Director Pete Dalis ceased a month ago, no nice or congratulatory letters have been printed. Well, here's one. Pauley Pavilion exploded as it did during the Wooden years and UCLA basketball is back, thanks to the fine coaching of Jim Harrick. And Pete Dalis continues to run the best overall athletic program in the United States.

Re "A Thousand Proverbs Later, It's Still a Brutality," Commentary, April 20: Mineke Schipper, albeit good with proverbs, is unfortunately quite ignorant about domestic violence. After quoting old proverbs about women, she says "the threat of violence against women still looms large." But she neglects to mention that women initiate domestic violence about as often as men do. Cal State Long Beach maintains a bibliography that summarizes 150 scholarly investigations, with an aggregate sample size exceeding 100,000, consistently finding that "women are as physically aggressive, or more aggressive, than men in their relationships with their spouses or male partners."
