Smith was 78 when he died Tuesday at the Motion Picture and Television Hospital in Woodland Hills. He died of congestive heart failure, according to his wife, actress Edith Atwater, who said that he had been at the Motion Picture and Television Home for 2 1/2 years.

After reading The Times article "Reagan Era: What Will History Say?" (Part I, Aug. 21) on the Reagan Administration I thought back to the 1920s and the administrations of the very handsome and personable President Warren G.

For several years, Harding, the very model of chivalry, had charmed the country while he left the practice of government to his friends, and Coolidge adopted the maxim that the business of government is business.
Authorities searched unsuccessfully Sunday for a mountain lion residents reported spotting behind their homes--the third sighting in a week of a big cat in the northeastern San Fernando Valley. Los Angeles police scoured the neighborhood around the 7200 block of Lonzo Street, where the animal was reportedly seen about 11 a.m. Residents said they saw the animal sleeping. But by the time authorities arrived, it had run off toward horse trails in the foothills.

The Navy searched today for three sailors missing in an explosion and fire that ripped the diesel-powered attack submarine Bonefish and forced the crew to flee. Twenty-three crew members were injured, three seriously.

A sometimes unruly crowd of about 75 Woodland Hills residents Monday opposed the planned use of a closed school for job training and child care, programs that many said would bring too much noise and traffic to their quiet neighborhood. But representatives of the Los Angeles Unified School District, who last year leased out parts of Charles Evans Hughes Junior High School--at 5607 Capistrano St.--and four other West Valley schools, said the impact on the neighborhood would be minimal.

Greece looks close to bolting from the European Union with national elections this weekend. Spain's banks were just bailed out, and Italy might be next. And, closer to home, Wall Street is still reeling about May's crummy jobs report. So you'd think U.S. stocks would be tanking? Nope. Welcome to the bad-news rally: The Dow Jones industrial average shot up more than 160 points on Tuesday. Right now, some traders out there are betting that economic and political signals continue to worsen, leading to another financial crisis.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on Wednesday settled disputes about the recipients of producer credit on two nominees for best picture, "The Aviator" and "Million Dollar Baby." The academy was spared a third deliberation because the filmmakers behind "Ray" had independently whittled the credited producers down to three -- the maximum allowed under new rules. The rules are part of an effort to limit the number of producers who come onstage to collect the top Oscar.

THE CURRENT spat between Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and President Bush echoes a California discord that contributed to the Republicans losing the presidency in 1916. A lesser prize is at stake this time -- the governor's initiatives -- but rankled feelings may end with conservatives losing another November election.
