Drive down Santa Fe Avenue a few miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles and you're sure to find a row of dilapidated warehouses, a burned-out pickup or two and a set of abandoned railroad tracks. You'll also find one of the biggest stockpiles of designer neckwear in the world. Ties are big business in the sleek, monolithic building that houses Superba Inc. and dominates the 1700 block.

Louis Wiley Sr., 85, who rose to head his grandfather's company, now the oldest continuous producer of men's ties and other neckwear in the country, and moved what has become Superba Inc. to Los Angeles, died Jan. 6. He died at his retirement home in Savannah, Ga., of unspecified causes. Wiley was born in Rochester, N.Y., where his maternal grandfather, Herman C. Cohn, founded H.C. Cohn & Co. in 1873.

The Antonio Rodriguez and Veronica Gutierrez article (Editorial Pages, Aug. 21), "State Prison Plan Insults the Whole Latino Community," was right on the mark. But The Times editorial the next day was way off base. The Times has suddenly discovered that Gov. George Deukmejian and Speaker Willie Brown (D-San Francisco) want the state to pay millions for a downtown prison before any impact report is filed. For shame!
