Perhaps the Doles (Sen. Robert Dole, R-Kan., and former Secretary of Transportation Elizabeth Dole) would have a better chance of getting to the White House if she became the presidential candidate and he gave up his job in the Senate to help his wife campaign. SUSAN LESLIE SMITH Arcadia

A day after U.S. operations started in Panama, we heard Sen. Robert Dole (R-Kan.) on national television enthusiastically supporting the invasion. Just several months ago Dole harshly criticized Israel after its daring and brilliant operation in Lebanon to bring Sheik Obeid, a master terrorist, to justice. In that operation a small elite unit abducted Obeid from Lebanon without a single casualty, either military or civilian. Dole claimed that such an operation endangered the lives of the hostages.

To prove himself as a strong forceful type and not the "wimp" label that he had been wearing, the vice president has come across as a bully, attacking anything that he thinks will put him out in front as the strongest contender. If I were his campaign manager, I would have announced to the public after the Iowa caucuses that Bush came out with a "fantastic" showing along with Robertson followed by Sen. Robert Dole on the "other" end. I think our vice president has been "Bush-whacking" himself.

Sara Fritz's report about congressional speaking fees and charitable foundations ("Speech Fees: Handy Tool for Congress," Part I, Jan. 16) was a sad disservice to your readers and to disabled Americans. As president and chief executive officer of the Dole Foundation--one of The Times targets--I want an opportunity to set the record straight. The Times claims that the Dole Foundation is "perhaps the most elaborate outgrowth of excess honorariums." This statement is preposterous.

In response to "Dole Says He Was Victim of Negative News Coverage" Part I, April 27: Sen. Robert Dole (R-Kan.) is absolutely right about negative news reporting and the liberal anti-Republican bias of the press in this country. He mentioned the New York Times. It couldn't be any worse than the Los Angeles Times. Never once in the past eight years that I can remember, has The Times agreed with anything President Reagan has done or given him credit for any of the good that has happened; but The Times is quick to blame him for the bad. It is well-documented that a majority of the press in this country tilts to the left--sometimes subtly, more often blatantly.

The League of Women Voters on Tuesday canceled a planned June 4 debate between Republican presidential candidates in Torrance after Kansas Sen. Robert Dole dropped out of the race. "The debate has been officially, finally and forever canceled," league spokeswoman Janice Kaplan said in Washington. Also canceled was a scheduled debate in Rochester, N.Y. The decision to drop the debates had been expected since Bush swept the March 8 Super Tuesday primaries and opened a commanding lead over Dole.
