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: I could not believe the rave review that Margaret Zellers gave the Malliouhana ("Centerpiece of the Caribbean's Cognoscenti"). I read it twice, thinking I had misread it the first time--but, no, I hadn't. She did say "imperious staff" and "tortoise-slow service."

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.

Los Angeles Times travel editor Jerry Hulse received the Insignia of the Chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur, the highest award the French government bestows, at ceremonies on Monday evening at the French Consulate in Beverly Hills. The Legion of Honor, awarded by President Francois Mitterrand and presented to Hulse by French Minister of Tourism Jean-Jacques Descamps, was established by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1802 and recognizes individuals who contribute to France's renown.
