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).

Re " 'Freedomland': Not the Happiest Place on Earth" (by Jan Herman, Oct. 12): Who is Ted Morgan? A good Welsh name, to be sure, but the only Ted Sylvia Plath was ever married to was Ted Hughes. KAREN LEUSCHNER Manhattan Beach
