Supporters of Childhelp USA, many of them from Los Angeles, got a taste of Orange County when they visited an estate once owned by John Wayne and partied aboard a palatial 127-foot yacht.

There were no searchlights at this Columbia premiere--no stretch limos, no mugging celebs, not one autograph hound. But the excitement was there just the same for Orange County's benefit preview of "Awakenings" last week at Edwards South Coast Plaza Theatre. The movie starring Robin Williams and Robert De Niro had hundreds of supporters of the South Coast Institute for Applied Gerontology and the Alzheimer's Assn. applauding, guffawing and weeping shamelessly.

From the crush at the door, it could have been the lineup for a jumbo jet to Israel. From some of the more revealing bathing suits that followed dinner, it could have been a scene from an Israeli beach. But it was the Beverly Hilton on Monday night as the "Flight of Fantasy" with the Women's Division of Israel Bonds celebrated the 40th anniversary of Israel's statehood.

Cruising along Newport Harbor in a 14-foot sailboat, a woman cranes her neck to gawk at a gleaming white yacht berthed in front of a luxury waterfront home. "What's a boat like that cost? About $300,000?" she wonders aloud to her companion as the small sailboat skims by, dwarfed by the 127-foot, 200-ton vessel. Try $10 million. And another $1 million a year for maintenance, insurance, fuel and crew salaries.

Gen. Alexander Haig wasn't there. He was what parachutists call a refusal. "He stood at the door but wouldn't go out," Henry Plitt said of his fellow former paratrooper. Nevertheless, if there were ever a parachutists' party, this was it. Table centerpieces were parachutes anchored in beds of red roses. The baked Alaskas arrived with tiny plastic airplanes on board. And just thinking about some of the great moments in paratrooping history turned this crowd nostalgic. Officially, the $250-a-person gala at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Thursday night was a fund-raiser for Friends of the Israel Defense Forces, a nonpolitical organization that provides educational, recreational and cultural services to Israeli soldiers ("It's Israel's USO--it's that simple," said Lou Lenart, who directs activities in North America)

While European authorities track down how former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko acquired a lethal dose of the radioactive substance polonium-210, the rest of us go about our normal routines, not realizing we are taking in tiny amounts of the substance all the time. The people who take in the most are smokers and aficionados of reindeer meat and liver.

The smelling salts, please. A bash with an asking price of $18,000 per person? At this time of year? You betcha.
