Dr. Edward McCabe was a pediatric fellow in Colorado, fresh out of medical school, in 1976 when he first met Joel and Kevin. Only 2 and 3 years old, respectively, the brothers were short, physically weak and severely retarded, with IQs in the 30s. They had triangular, elfin faces, crossed eyes and remarkably sweet dispositions. That chance encounter changed his life, says McCabe, who recently moved to UCLA, steering him in a career direction he had not anticipated.

The sign outside the UCLA Medical Center's pediatrics department soon will read "UCLA Children's Hospital." The name change has occurred since the medical center in Westwood was accepted for membership in the National Assn. of Children's Hospitals and Related Facilities.

They had planned to trek across the world, a couple of newlyweds from Southern California and their infant daughter. The Greek isle of Mykonos was as good a starting place as any. They didn't need much money. He taught scuba diving; she was a manicurist. But by their daughter's first birthday, she hadn't said a word--not even baby talk. She hadn't taken a step, either. Her rattles held no interest. Six months later, nothing had changed. Actually, everything had changed.

It is a delicate dance, a struggle to find the right words to console grieving parents while also asking for permission to harvest their dead child's organs. The physicians and scientists at Children's Hospital of Orange County do their best to gently explain that the only way to find a cure or prevent childhood disorders ranging from autism to cerebral palsy is to dissect and research brain and organ tissue from young sufferers.

Their guns are trained on us. Soon Michael S. Dukakis and George Bush, in consort with their media advisers, will blast away with interminable television and radio commercials. The public will stare back and sigh. Almost by tradition, political advertising is a notoriously gross craft, full of obvious manipulation and hype. Its general strategy seems to be: Bludgeon the populace and hope for the best. This is not to say there hasn't been some successful political advertising.

U.S. hospitals are making major strides at clamping down on early deliveries of babies and instead letting Mother Nature take its course in response to growing pressure from employers, government officials and patient-safety advocates. The Leapfrog Group, an employer-backed organization that tracks hospital safety and quality, published data Monday showing a sharp decrease in early-elective deliveries since 2010 nationwide and in California. The rate of deliveries before 39 weeks without a medical reason fell to 4.6% last year compared with 17% in 2010 among nearly 1,000 U.S. hospitals that reported results.
