Kalagian Alki Southwest Roxbury Street, where on either side of the path grow evergreen and maple :trees, grass and blackberries. A rich combina- tion of color, texture and foliage is evident. How disappointed I was this morning as I ran along the path and saw the damage done by someone who drove their car on the grass, leaving behind muddy ruts. The car was even driven over a sloping bank, and I'm sure the act was done under the cover of darkness. What causes people to behave in this way? My son thinks young people between the ages of 17 and 24 who are restless with time on their hands may have done this. Then, as they mature, hopefully, their time is taken up by work. Could the schools give more emphasis to caring about our com- munity parks which are set aside for everyone to enjoy? Another help could be more publicity given to such vandalism. Thank you for allowing me to express my feelings. Wanda Durkoop White Center WELCOME The Herald,News welcomes your letters. Address them to P.O.

And so you've opted to wearing hearing aids. Well, it's about time. Now you have no excuse for not listening to your critics. A lot of guys hate to admit they have any kind of weakness. Any vul- nerability. And they also detest any- thing that might detract from their looks, like hearing aids that show. I SUSPECT you chose the kind that you hide deep down in the ear canal, because of vanity and the specious claims of the hearing-aid makers. Big mistake. Not only do they cost an arm and a leg; smaller is not better. You are going to find that having one of those so-called "midget miracles" in each ear will drive you nuts. Your head sounds like you are living at the bottom of a steel drum. And they are so small they can't be adjusted without pulling them out of the ears, and that's not easy. There is a tiny piece of nylon fishing line that is almost impossible to get your fingers on. Particularly if you have fat fingers or short nails. Of course, you can always have one of your Secret Ser- vice guys (with thin fingers, or a pair of needle-nose pliers) remove the annoying device. Just don't do it in public, please You're also going to find that those tiny devices have tiny batter- ies and Hillary is going to keep opening the lit- tle door on the aid and insert- ing a new one because they run down almost overnight. Ask her to slide her long fingernail under the little door and open it up each night. This will keep it from run- ning down as fast. ALSO, get yourself a whole bunch of the dreaded things. Because much of the time you won't know where they are. They just disappear. And don't wear them while play- ing golf. You won't have to listen to the other guys trying to rattle you -- or the helicopter overhead, or crows, or dogs barking. Another thing: You better remem- ber to take them out when you show- er. Get 'em wet and you're out a cou- ple of thousand, and they have to send them back to some company in Minnesota or some other tbreign land and you can't hear anything for a couple of weeks. IF YOU get tired of having your head in a barrel, get the kind that fit in the upper end of the ear canal. Everybody can see them, of course. But so what'? They have a little vol- ume control you can adjust anytime with a twist of the thumb tip. It makes a whistling sound that every- body within a New York block can hear. The whole crowd at your cabi- net meeting will snicker. But you get used to it. At least your head isn't always stopped up, and the batteries last a lot longer. Women's voices are the toughest to hear. Unless that is what you want. It can bc a problem, though. If Hillary asks you how you want your eggs and you answer with "Yes," you might not get any break- last.
