Stuffed animals, teen magazines and children's underwear were found in a raid of a Wilmington motel that was home to dozens of convicted child molesters and registered sex offenders, authorities said Monday. Eight people were taken into custody Friday for alleged parole violations, including possession of child pornography or narcotics. Most of those arrested were middle-aged men whose previous offenses included lewd and lascivious conduct with children or other sex crimes, said Det. Patricia Batts of the Los Angeles Police Department.

One Girl's Battle With Booze. Save The Earth, Girl. Black Kids Who Are Fed Up. Menstrual Customs: A World Tour. Guns Put Fear In Teens' Hearts. These are not the teen magazine articles your mother used to read. Even compared to just 10 years ago, periodicals for teen-age girls have grown up.

Barbara O'Dair likes what she's hearing. O'Dair, managing editor of Teen People, sits at the head of a staff meeting grinning as music editor Matt Hendrickson lists the celebrities attending their American Music Awards after-party. The list is impressive, and it grows by the hour. A sample of the yes column: 'N Sync's Justin Timberlake and Lance Bass, Mandy Moore, the Osbourne family, Sarah Michelle Gellar and husband Freddie Prinze Jr. "Keep naming names -- I like this," O'Dair says.

MH-18, a new general-interest magazine for teenage boys that recently hit newsstands, claims to be like a big brother--but smarter. That contention may actually be accurate, since not every older sibling knows how to tune a guitar with a telephone, unhook a woman's bra with one hand, make a safe out of a tennis ball and survive a bear attack. That's just a smidgen of the "tons of useful stuff for teenage guys" that is touted on the cover of this advice-oriented magazine for 13- to 18-year-olds.

Angela Janklow Harrington arrives for lunch wearing dangerously high platforms, clutching her magazine like a baby she's afraid will be snatched away. She's 15 minutes late. "I hope I'm not late," she said. Her sense of timing is better than her sense of time. Harrington, 29, is the editor and creator of Mouth2Mouth, a new magazine aimed at male and female teens that celebrates the power of pop culture. Based in Beverly Hills, it is published by Time Inc.

Pat H. Broeske's article on Tom Cruise ("Cruise-ing in the Media Stratosphere," May 25) refers to "the cover of Interview (his first 'official' cover, if you discount his countless teen-magazine fronts)." So what are we--chopped liver? My cover story on Tom Cruise ran in Moviegoer in December, 1985, well before the current deluge of stories on the actor. And, for the record, Moviegoer is not a teen magazine. It's a national film monthly with a controlled circulation of 1.2 million and an estimated readership of 3 million.

I'm 17 and I think that New Kids on the Block are really stupid and immature. Not only do I see them on the cover of every teen magazine, I spent my hard-earned money on your newspaper and there they are again. Boy, this country has gone to the dogs--not the economy, the music. RACHELLE MOORE Marina Del Rey

Hot flash! Totally cool new mags. They're, like, for young people--ya' know--kids, teens and college students. And, big surprise, they tell you how to flirt, look absolutely the best and know who's hot and who's not. They also take some serious looks at major issues--really. Sounds like teen-speak? Several new magazines are attempting not only to sound and look like today's teens but to address many of the pressing issues young adults face.

They've got it all. The style, the financial clout, the fashion sense, the influence. We listen to their music, copy their threads, mimic their language, envy their Internet savvy. Where they lead, we will follow . . . eventually. They are America's teens--high on the totem pole of the Millennium Generation (young people ages 5 to 20), who have the collective buying power of more than $140 billion.

SEVEN YEARS AGO, HAD I ENCOUNTERED THE woman I am today, I would have pitied her: long sleeves and an ankle-length skirt in the middle of summer; no driving, writing, talking on the phone or cooking from sundown Friday until sundown Saturday; recently married to a man she'd never touched--not so much as a peck on the cheek--until after the wedding. I'd have cringed and dismissed this woman as a Repressed Religious Nut.

They are the new teen magazines and they're taking over your newsstands.

She grew up in Southern California and considers herself to be a typical teen-ager. Her life is filled with cheerleading practices, shopping treks, late-night phone calls and weekend activities with friends. Her parents are Vietnamese refugees who fled to the United States around the 1975 fall of Saigon. Homesick for their country, they gave her the Vietnamese name Hoai Huong, which means "look homeward."
