As I stood gazing at a Van Gogh at the Leningrad exhibit in The Los Angeles County Museum, I thought to myself, "He's the guy who cut off his ear." My only regret is that Ned B. Tuck wasn't standing next to me so that I could have uttered these culturally Philistine words into his snobbish, elitist ear. LOUISE K. RADLER Los Angeles

When I read Tuck's letter, my first thought was: "That's great. Even though they didn't have an extensive background knowledge, those people spent the time and money to see the French Impressionists." Then I dwelt on the mental picture of Tuck being subjected to eavesdropping on inane comments, and I realized how wrong I was. It's a crime that they allow just anyone into museums, but since it's a free country, and Tuck and I can't change that, I do have a suggestion. Museums ought to require intelligence tests first, to screen out those who are incapable of appreciating art. These people would constitute one group.
