For the first time in 20 years, no one stood outside the Soviet Embassy on Monday demonstrating on behalf of Jews trying to emigrate from the Soviet Union. The Kremlin's relaxed policies led the Jewish Community Council of Greater Washington to suspend, as of Sunday, the daily 15-minute protests that began in December, 1970, a year when only 28 Jews were given permission to emigrate to the United States.

The American musician Garrick Ohlsson has actually grown up before our eyes. He was already a well-known competition winner when he captured the top prize in the international Chopin Competition in Warsaw in 1970. A year later, the young pianist played at the Hollywood Bowl, and has returned here many times. Friday night, coming back to UCLA--but not Royce Hall, scene of his local recital debut in 1976--Ohlsson again made a musical and personal triumph.

The Raider quarterback, Jim Plunkett, had a three-touchdown day at New Orleans, and Philadelphia's Ron Jaworski threw three interceptions. The game's most spectacular play was an 80-yard Plunkett-to-Kenny King touchdown.

Lautner set up his practice shortly after moving to Los Angeles in 1937 to supervise Wright projects.
