In a videotape played for jurors Tuesday, Maria del Rosio Alfaro told sheriff's investigators that she repeatedly stabbed a 9-year-old girl to death to eliminate her as a witness to a robbery. Prosecutors said Autumn Wallace was stabbed 50 times in the bathroom of the Anaheim home that she shared with her mother and older sister, neither of whom was at home during the attack on June 15, 1990.

A 16-year-old Oklahoma girl gave birth today in the bathroom of a Senate office building while the group she was with toured the Capitol. "Last I heard she was doing fine," Capitol Police spokesman Dan Nichols said. "She walked out of the bathroom carrying the baby." Nichols said the Blanchard, Okla., girl, whose name was not released, went into a bathroom on the ground floor of the Senate Dirksen office building about 8 a.m. and gave birth. The group's chaperon, Don Grabbe, and Debora Brooke, a Capitol Police sergeant, helped deliver the 4-pound, 5-ounce baby boy.

If a view could say, "You've arrived," it would be the one from this house. The newly completed home on Beverly Hills' Angelo Drive looks out on downtown Los Angeles, Century City, Beverly Hills, the Los Angeles Country Club and, on a clear day, even to the ocean. From afar, the house resembles a stylized box, enclosed by sliding glass doors and frameless windows. Up close, it's elegant lines and attention to detail. Floors are polished concrete, honeycombed to control heat and cold.

Transgender activist Eli Erlick, 18, was on the phone from her home in the small Mendocino County town of Willits and I could not resist asking her to respond to something uttered recently on the radio by James Dobson, founder of the conservative Christian group Focus on the Family. "God made us male and female," said Dobson, expressing distaste for California's groundbreaking new law that requires schools to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms and play on the sports teams of the gender they identify with.

I thought having to endure cell phones at the beach was a nuisance ("Withdrawing Into Our Cells," Sept. 19). After all, isn't the beach a place to get away from it all? But this week, as I sat in a bathroom stall (one of the few semiprivate places left in life), the woman in the stall next to me received a cell call. She answered it, started talking to the person on the other end and laughingly stated that she was in a stall in the ladies' bathroom. Yikes! Please, it's one thing if you choose to sit on a toilet and talk to someone that you feel comfortable enough doing that (preferably in your home)

Jerry really hit the jackpot. My senior citizen group toured a well-known Redlands "restored mansion" for a fee of $2.50 each. My reaction was, "Share a bathroom with someone you don't know? No thanks." The bathroom was a monstrosity. Tub on claw legs; one would have had to stand on a footstool to get in. For my money I'll take an inexpensive motel even if the coffeeshop is half a block away. Good work. MRS. ALICE BERGDAHL Los Angeles
