Deposed Philippine President Ferdinand E. Marcos has been granted permission to stay in the United States for at least another year. William Craig, district director of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service in Honolulu, extended the routine six-month visa for Marcos, 68, through 1987. The extension also applies to the 120 to 140 aides and family members who fled the Philippines with Marcos in February or joined him in Hawaii shortly afterward, Craig said.

SO the golden era of cinema is drawing to a close; too bad ["In a Losing Race With the Zeitgeist," by Patrick Goldstein, Nov. 22]. But it's the studios' reliance on technology as a replacement for good writing and directing, more than the advent of DVDs and such, that's been doing them in. Technology's changed things, but it'd be hard to conjure a more putrid and unimaginative stream of bilge than Hollywood's been producing. Good riddance. WILLIAM CRAIG DROSE Los Angeles

A U.S. official who visited Ferdinand E. Marcos in his Honolulu hospital room said the former Philippine president appears to be "gravely ill." William Craig, the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service district director, is the first U.S. official to acknowledge seeing Marcos since his latest hospitalization. "It's fair to say that the reports previously in the news media that he was in critical condition are absolutely true," Craig said.
