In a major case of academic poaching involving crosstown rivals, USC has lured away two prominent neuroscientists from UCLA with a promise to expand their internationally renowned lab that uses brain imaging techniques to study Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia, autism and other disorders. Arthur Toga and Paul Thompson will move to the USC Keck School of Medicine campus next fall, along with scores of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and staffers who now work at UCLA's Laboratory of Neuro Imaging, known as LONI.

When revelations surfaced a decade ago that fertility doctors at UCI Medical Center had stolen eggs and embryos from patients, the university vowed to find the women who may have been victims.

Laurel L. Wilkening, a planetary scientist and provost at the University of Washington, is an excellent choice as new chancellor of UC Irvine. She will have a hard act to follow in succeeding Jack W. Peltason, who was named president of the University of California system last October. He provided fine leadership for UC Irvine as it grew in numbers and stature as a research institution, especially in the areas of biology and neurology.

The Nov. 4 vote on Proposition 56 will decide the future of two UCLA construction projects. If approved by a simple majority of voters, the bond measure will provide $233 million for capital projects in 1986-87, including $86.4 million for the University of California system. At UCLA, the funds are needed to construct a $6.2-million addition to the School of Law and for design of a $1.35-million chemistry and life sciences project.

I am responding to the Jan. 23 coverage of the pro- and anti-war rallies: My hard-earned tax dollars help support the University of California system. The students attending UCI are there for one purpose only: education, which I help provide. How dare they skip classes, indiscriminately wasting my money! And as for Prof. Rowe, who canceled his class to attend the rally--fire him! Let him protest on his own time. KASSY HEPPS, Santa Ana
