Your recent article ``Former Communists Set to Regain Power in Polish Elections,'' Sept. 17, quotes the chairman of Poland's Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) as saying that his party seeks a compromise between the free market and workers' needs. Isn't this the crux of the problems in many of the formerly communist nations? One does not have to advocate communism to appreciate that there must be a fairer distribution of the profits made in any form of free market than we have yet seen in our modern society. Doris F. Sutter, San Rafael, Calif.
