Investigators so far cannot substantiate allegations that a secret Swiss bank account run by a Pentagon intelligence unit helped finance a 1985 weapons shipment to Nicaragua's contras by Marine Lt. Col. Oliver L. North, according to military sources and others close to the inquiry. One source who refused to be identified said that some of the charges, apparently leveled last month by former Army special operations officer William Golden, had been recanted.

In mid-October, a homeless man was standing at the intersection of Hudson Street and Interstate 71 in Columbus, Ohio. A sign around his neck proclaimed that he had a "gift of voice" and had "fallen on hard times. " The man was spotted by a videographer for the Columbus Dispatch who conducted a couple of brief interviews, gave him a few bucks, and finally posted the video on the newspaper's website on Jan. 3. In less than two days, the homeless man, Ted Williams, was lifted from panhandling obscurity to YouTube sensation thanks to a 97-second clip that showcased his astonishingly resonant voice.

Golden, an influential behind-the-scenes force with many of the nation's prominent scientific research institutions who conceived the idea of a presidential science advisor, died Sunday of lymphoma at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York.

Steadying his right elbow on his left wrist, Richard Bunkall dips a long, thin brush into umber paint and applies it to the big canvas. Then he backs off in his motorized chair--taking care not to run over William, the faithful golden retriever always at his side--and scrutinizes his painting. The artist is facing a deadline, having promised 10 new pieces for an exhibit opening this week at the Mendenhall Gallery in Pasadena.

It is unfortunate that former Sen. William Proxmire's "Golden Fleece Award," given in recognition of acts wasting taxpayers' money, is not awarded to members of the California Legislature. Otherwise, Rep. Curt Pringle would doubtlessly win the award for his bill commemorating President Reagan's "illustrious service to our country." Is Pringle going to represent his constituents, or the leaders of the Orange County Republican Party? SUZANNE HAYWARD Newport Beach

Steve Sanders, the guitarist in the band that backs up the Oak Ridge Boys, will probably replace the group's recently fired member William Lee Golden, the Oaks' Duane Allen said Wednesday. "Steve is probably the most likely candidate because he already knows our material," Allen said. "If there's an inside track, he's got it." Sanders, 34, has played rhythm guitar in the Oaks' backup band for five years.

I read with shock in the paper ("FEMA Makes Its Point in Spanish," Jan. 28) that the government is giving aid to illegal immigrants left homeless by the quakes. This is so outrageous I refuse to believe it's true. Not only do illegal immigrants clog our courts, our hospitals and our schools, they can now get a check for a place to live that also originated from our tax dollar. The federal government financed and developed the welfare system in America, and now, in most parts of the country instead of looking for a job, they are looking for a federal handout.
