FOR native Angelenos of my vintage (ancient), Welsh rabbit ["Clever Rabbit Tricks," by Charles Perry, Jan. 3] and the old Cock N' Bull restaurant on Sunset will be forever intertwined. There, Welsh rabbit was the standard first course. In my younger days I used to make the Cock N' Bull Welsh rabbit at home from a recipe printed in a small cookbook devoted to the famous dishes of old-line L.A. restaurants. That recipe has long vanished into the mysterious abyss where lie cookbooks that were only used for one dish.

Thanks to Richard Eder for his review of Thomas Cahill's excellent "How The Irish Saved Civilization" (March 12). But why was the good Irish St. Patrick identified opaquely as a "Celt from Britain," instead of what he was--a Welshman, a native son of Cymru (Wales)? The fact of St. Patrick's birth in Wales (Cymru) is so-well established that Superior Court Judge John Leahy, an Irish Celt himself, recently took "judicial notice" that St. Patrick was a Welshman in the case of Welsh-American/Twm Sion Cati Legal Defense BC075927.

What a week it has been for 7-foot center Thomas Welsh of Los Angeles Loyola. On Wednesday, the UCLA-bound Welsh was selected to play in the McDonald's All American Game, quite an achievement for someone who didn't start on junior varsity as a freshman or on varsity as a sophomore. "It was euphoric and an amazing accomplishment for an amazing young man," Coach Jamal Adams said. "T is the ultimate grinder. He shows up with a lunch pail every day. " He also has become one of the elite center prospects in California.

Welsh soccer fans rampaged through a seaside suburb early Friday, fighting Greek fans and damaging three taverns before police arrested 14 of them, authorities said. Prosecutor George Koliokostas charged the 14 fans of the Swansea City soccer club with causing damage to property and said they would remain in custody until their trial today before a three-member magistrates' court. The Welsh club lost, 3-2, to Panathinaikos of Athens in a European soccer championship match Wednesday.

The high-peaked Bethel Congregational Church, seemingly more suited to an American suburb than the Argentine outback, is an artisans' pride of polished pine and crisp red brick. From a fundamentalist altar, four solid ranks of pews stare into yesterday. "When I was a girl, the pews were filled; all of them every Sunday," said Moelona Llwyd Roberts de Drake with a smile at once nostalgic and apologetic. "Now we get only about 20 worshipers, and the Sunday School classes are in Spanish."

Re "Meaning of life," Opinion, July 26 I like the idea of "100 Things." Martin Welsh's article got me started on my own list of "100 Things." Happily, at age 79, I realize I am nowhere near any number to make me think of death. Barbara A. Hall Pasadena :: With the greatest respect and appreciation for Welsh's situation and beautiful words, several years ago I decided -- on hearing that paramedics had tried for 30 minutes to resuscitate my 82-year-old mother after she dropped to the floor while making dinner -- that at the appropriate time I would have "DNR" tattooed on my upper lip. I hope Welsh is able to prolong his pleasures in life as long as possible, and that he has the gift of a peaceful transition.

Bonjour! Didn't anyone on your staff study French? In your timeline mention of the 1960 film "Breathless" ("Defining Moments of the 20th Century," Oct. 3), not only do you have Jean-Paul Belmondo running out of souffle rather than breath (souffle), you have him smoking a Welsh girl (Galoise) rather than a cigarette (Gauloise).

 Stanley Johnson of Santa Ana Mater Dei and Thomas Welsh of Los Angeles Loyola have been selected to play for the West team in the McDonald's All American Game on April 2 at Chicago's United Center. Johnson, who signed with Arizona, has been considered the No. 1 player in California. The 7-footer Welsh, a UCLA signee, has made major improvement in the last year and is a bit of rarity to have earned a spot after not being recognized as one of the nation's best during his junior year.

WASHINGTON - The Air Force said Wednesday that as many as 34 officers responsible for firing nuclear-tipped missiles may have cheated on a proficiency test, the latest and potentially most serious misconduct scandal involving the military's most destructive weapons. Some officers are under investigation on suspicion of sharing text messages last fall with answers to the test and others for knowing about the cheating and doing nothing, Gen. Mark A. Welsh III, the Air Force chief of staff, said at a Pentagon news conference.

  Thomas Welsh, a rapidly improving 7-foot center at Los Angeles Loyola, has committed to UCLA. Welsh also considered Stanford and California. His decision is an important recruiting victory for UCLA Coach Steve Alford in landing a top player from Southern California. Welsh averaged 12.6 points and 10.9 rebounds as a junior. His development over the summer resulted in an intense recruiting campaign from Pac-12 schools.

A grandfather's faith in his infant grandson's athletic talent paid off big this week when Harry Wilson became the youngest man to play for the Welsh national soccer team, earning his grandfather a payout big enough to retire on. Shortly after Harry was born 16 years his grandfather, Peter Wilson, laid down less than $80 -- at 2,500-1 odds -- that the boy would play for Wales in an international match. And that landed him more than $200,000 when Harry Wilson came on in the 87th minute of a 1-1 draw with Belguim on Tuesday in a World Cup qualifier.

It's a new era in college football recruiting. Sometimes it takes showing up at a camp to convince a school to offer a scholarship. That's what happened Friday at UCLA, where receiver Jordan Lasley of Gardena Serra said he ran a 4.4 40-yard dash and made such a positive impression that he received a scholarship offer from the Bruins. On Saturday, he accepted the offer. "It meant a lot," Lasley said. "I think of it as testament to my hard work. I was really appreciative. " There are risks in going to college camps, because the coaches get to see you up close and personal, and measurements and speed times might not match previous expectations.

Point guards are plentiful in the Mission League, but two of the best were missing in action Monday night at West Hills Chaminade, and the absence of the Eagles' Jaron Martin (strep throat) and Loyola's Parker Jackson-Cartwright (ankle injury) created opportunity for the understudies. In the end, Max Hazzard of Loyola came through at a decisive time, getting the ball to 7-footer Thomas Welsh deep into the key for an easy basket with 1 minute 19 seconds left to give the Cubs (12-2, 2-0)

As the credits of "Coming Up Roses" (at the Nuart today through Wednesday) unroll, the camera pans over a series of abandoned movie palaces, settling at last on a puddle of water in which we can read a neon reflection: R E X. Alas, it's no use taking heart, for it's the last night for the Rex, a crumbling Art Deco pile in the Welsh mining town of Aberdare. Once Aberdare boasted six movie theaters, but they have died off just like its mines.
