I read the article on CIF Southern Section Commissioner Stan Thomas (Dec. 10) with great interest. As Mark Landsbaum points out, Thomas has done remarkable work at resolving some of the knotty problems of Southern California athletics. What Landsbaum doesn't say, however, is even more important--how the commissioner fulfills his important duties. By that, I mean how much Stan Thomas has done to promote and make possible the educational value of athletics for all youngsters. Thomas is a rare commissioner of high school athletics, one who pays just as close attention to the value of athletic competition for all students as he does to the superior programs and highly sought-after athletes.

In Del Mar, students at a "Winterfest" program sang "Frosty the Snowman" but not "Silent Night." And at an Altadena elementary school, students performed "Jingle Bell Rock," "Feliz Navidad" and "Oh Hanukkah."

Although American children have enjoyed a smorgasbord of literary offerings, from Dr. Seuss to Roald Dahl, Spanish-speaking youngsters have been starved for books, or sometimes force-fed a diet of political propaganda under the guise of children's literature, a North County educator contends.

'We had to work hard to ease parents' fears . . . meet students' needs' The Saturday before the 1984 fall semester began, the halls of South Pasadena Junior High were filled with parents watching their future sixth-graders practice working the combinations on their lockers. "The biggest fear the kids had was about their lockers," said Granville Thurman, principal of the school. "So we handed out hall locker assignments before the start of school so the kids had a chance to try them out."
