As an alumnus and a trustee of the UC Santa Barbara Foundation, I write to thank you for placing so prominently on your front page the wonderful news about our two new Nobel laureates (Oct. 11). For a very long time, the excellence of UCSB has been a deep, dark secret in the community, as your staff writer Anna Gorman made abundantly clear in her superb piece. No more, thanks to my alma mater's superb chancellor, administrators, professors and students. HARVEY B. SCHECHTER Sherman Oaks

The three-point shot was not enough to keep San Diego State from losing its season opener, 87-70, at UC Santa Barbara as the Gauchos made 11 of 12 free throws in the final three minutes. Guards Josh Lowery and Tony Ross both had five three-point baskets, but it was not enough to overcome the Aztecs' lack of an inside game. UCSB (1-1) outrebounded SDSU, 58-34. "My big concern going in was the inside game," said Coach Smokey Gaines. "And that's what hurt us tonight."

Scott Fisher isn't headed for a lucrative NBA contract. At 6-7, he's just another not-particularly-mobile forward who can't run very fast or jump very high. Just a couple of years ago, Fisher wasn't thinking about a pro career. He was wondering if he'd ever play again outside of a church league. He was so impressive at Mission San Jose High School, in fact, that he had to walk on as a freshman at UC Santa Barbara.

I was deeply moved by Jervey Tervalon's statement about his encounter with Marvin Mudrick ("A Novel Education," Jan. 23). In 1949, I entered Dr. Mudrick's class at UCSB. I think it was a first for both of us: the first class Dr. Mudrick had ever taught at UCSB and, for me, the first class where a teacher dynamited conventional, lazy responses and made reading momentous. From his lovely article, I know that Tervalon is continuing Dr. Mudrick's legacy. Michael Mahon Professor Emeritus of Literature Cal State Dominguez Hills
