A Corona del Mar podiatrist is struggling to get his foot in the door at a prestigious medical building complex in Newport Beach, complaining that the landlord is discriminating against his profession. Ivar Roth, 36, describes himself as "very conservative" and said he fits right into the traditional Newport Beach physician community. "I follow the rules," he said. "I don't make trouble."

One recent afternoon in Los Alamitos, I watched Marcy Zwelling-Aamot, M.D., pick her way through a government website designed to help elderly patients select the right Medicare drug plan, based on their prescription needs and hometown. The website, created for the launch of Medicare's new prescription drug benefit, identified 48 individual plans available for Southern California residents.

The INS has begun deportation proceedings against Joeri DeBeer, the Dana Point youth convicted of killing his legal guardian, who had sexually abused him. DeBeer was arrested earlier this month because he had committed a crime of "moral turpitude," said Harold W. Ezell, western regional commissioner for the Immigration and Naturalization Service. Because DeBeer was convicted of manslaughter, he is in violation of his non-immigrant student status, Ezell said Saturday.

Only rarely does a judge in a criminal case overturn the verdict reached by jurors in her own courtroom. Still rarer is the judge who admits to committing an error so serious it taints a verdict. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Jacqueline Connor did both Friday night in an extraordinary ruling that overturned the convictions of three Rampart Division police officers, impressing legal scholars with both her tightly reasoned legal arguments and her unusual candor.

The Seine rarely dances in Paris. Surrounded by city, unconnected to nature, it's a sullen, dark river, industrially trafficked and plowed to an incessant tourist highway. A green river; sometimes, a gray-blue shade like steel, along a high corridor of stone. Only as the Seine approaches suburban precincts does the river's lively brasher color, the silver of sunlight played on water, return.

In the Armenian community, putting parents in an old-age home is tantamount to abandoning them. Yet a Southland Armenian organization, Ararat Home of Los Angeles Inc., is running a convalescent hospital that ranks among the best in the nation. What's going on here? In general, Armenians and many other ethnic groups feel it is the responsibility of the parents to care for their children until old age incapacitates them; then the roles reverse, and the children do the parenting.

This isn't Burger King. We don't do it your way here. --Judge Manuel L. Real's favorite saying. The courtroom confrontation took place more than 30 years ago, but the most controversial federal judge in Los Angeles remembers it today as an early lesson in judicial style. Chief U.S. District Judge Manuel L. Real, then a young prosecutor, had decided that his only chance of winning a conviction before an unsympathetic judge was to demand a jury trial. But U.S. District Judge Pierson M.

Mention the words "Macaulay Culkin family"--really a code for the notorious Culkin pere , Kit--and you are likely to get one of two reactions. Some of those approached, like producer Bob Hurwitz of "The Nutcracker," in which Macaulay starred as the young prince, abruptly slam down the phone. From others, though, an almost Joycean stream-of-consciousness monologue pours forth: evocative, sometimes unprintable adjectives and nouns. A frequent one is "nightmare."

While "Unattainable Earth" may not be among the best of Czeslaw Milosz's work, it is taken seriously nevertheless by critics other than your reviewer, Tom Phillips (Book Review, May 25), because of what Milosz has accomplished over a lifetime and not because of any "atmosphere of overindulgence" created by the New York Review of Books. The work of someone of the stature of Milosz, despite its occasional slenderness, could have been made and published in any atmosphere. R. E. NOWICKI Publisher, San Francisco Review of Books
