The latest issue of Traveling in Style magazine, compiled biannually by Travel Editor Jerry Hulse, appeared in the Oct. 22 edition of The Times and brought the usual assortment of "reviews" from readers. Herewith a sampling of their comments: Congratulations on yet another highly enjoyable issue. My wife and I took great pleasure in the article by Nick Clooney ("Memories Are Made of This"); we especially enjoyed Jerry Hulse's story ("Sheer Grace: A Visit to Madewood, Queen of the Bayou")

It is dawn and save for the sound of ocean waves washing beneath my window, my world is as silent as a shining star. Last evening it rained so that today the sky is as blue as a young girl's eyes. All would be well if only that infernal rooster outside my door would stop crowing at midnight. The bird awakens me with a shrill crow that fizzles to a sputtering stop. It seems exhausted. I think it spent too much time in the henhouse.

I was sorry to hear of the death of former Times Travel editor Jerry Hulse. As a teen and adult living in Los Angeles in the '60s and '70s, I read his travel columns regularly. I have since visited 45 countries, and I often used Hulse's advice in making travel plans. MARK LOOY Florence, Ky.

A feature by Times Travel Editor Jerry Hulse on Hawaii's island of Lanai has been named "Best Newspaper Story" in the second annual Hawaii Visitors Bureau Travel Journalism Awards Contest. The article, which appeared in The Times Travel Section on Oct. 2, 1988, described Lanai as "an island that tourism had shunned" until the introduction of new resort hotels in 1988. Formerly owned by Dole, the island was known as the "Home of the World's Largest Pineapple Plantation."

We enjoyed the article by Travel Editor Jerry Hulse, "Victoria, B.C.--Everything But the Queen" (June 17), but believe he missed the best pub there. According to our experience (considering spirits, food and atmosphere) and recommended by the locals, the pub is Spinnakers, which is located just west of downtown over the Johnson Street Bridge. At 308 Catherine St., the pub has a view of the harbor from its windows or outside tables. It is not a tourist hangout. The food is exceptional, the beer made in the on-site micro-brewery is excellent, and the place, as large as it is, is always crowded.

Please don't liken Krakow, Poland, to Prague, Czech Republic ("Poland's New Crowd Pleaser," May 20). We had read similar articles stating this, and it led us to a disappointing weeklong stay in Krakow last September. After being leveled by Mongols in the 13th century, Krakow's center was rebuilt on a grid. The wonderful mazelike quality of Prague's old town does not exist there. The Wawel, lovely as it is, sits on only a slight mound next to the Vistula River. No comparison can be made to the dramatic scale, views and prominence of Prague's castle.
