HEALTHY TABLE TALK: The California Medical Assn. hosts a special guest with health care on his mind today at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim. President Clinton, via satellite, will answer questions from 13 carefully selected physicians who have concerns about the Clinton health-care proposal. . . . Says the association's president, David R. Holley: "We hope it will be like sitting down across the table and talking to the President."

BEYOND ARITHMETIC: Everybody knows the three Rs are reading, writing and arithmetic. But Nader Baroukh, a Chapman University junior who emigrated from Iran at age 7, suggests a fourth R fitting for an increasingly diverse culture: resolution. Baroukh suggests "we must begin teaching peaceful conflict resolution to all children," especially on racial issues. . . . Baroukh's ideas impressed the Harry S. Truman Foundation so much it has awarded him one of its prestigious $30,000 grants for graduate work at Notre Dame.

NICE SHOCK: Author Alvin Toffler will tell members of the American Electronics Assn. at the Irvine Marriott tonight that the "information" revolution is replacing industrial growth, and "brute force will give way to brain force, which will affect how we handle our armies." . . . . Toffler's "Future Shock" 24 years ago accurately predicted today's technological boom. The book still sells in the thousands each year. "It's like an oil well," says a happy Toffler. "Every year it just keeps on pumping."

THE BIG FOUR? How's this for a hot college basketball double-header: UCLA vs. Kentucky and Massachusetts vs. Kansas. That's the lineup announced Tuesday for the first John R. Wooden Classic on Dec. 3 at the Anaheim Arena. It's being put together by Orange County businessmen Randy Ryan and J.T. Visbal. Ryan says when he explained it was to honor Wooden, legendary former UCLA coach: "Teams couldn't come to me fast enough letting me know they wanted to participate."
