Like some Oscar ceremonies of years past, some Oscar parties have more glitches than glitz. Take Wednesday night's second annual Oscar-watching party and fund-raiser held by El Rescate, a support group for Central American refugees in the Los Angeles area. The 1988 El Rescate party at the Mondrian Hotel attracted a large crop of young actors, but this year's version, held at the newly reopened discotheque Vertigo in downtown Los Angeles, attracted fewer celebrities and more logistical problems.

Gloria Arqueta, a Los Angeles high school student who has lived here illegally for three years, has virtually no memory of her native El Salvador except for her parents' nightmarish stories. For many of her 17 years, she and her family wandered through Central America, searching for a safe haven from the civil war that has ravaged their country. "I just hear that children are being killed, burned to death, and they don't know why," she said. "I won't go back."

Salsa music blaring festively from loudspeakers belied the concerned expressions of many local residents as they milled about Terrace Park last weekend, shuffling through pamphlets and flyers at El Rescate immigrant center's first citizenship fair and block party. Despite the cheerful atmosphere Saturday, most of the 500 people who attended had come to seek ways to ensure their security as immigrants.

Despite its tarnished image and ongoing face lift, MacArthur Park has been immortalized, for better or worse, in a song by the same name. But 100 years from now, will anyone know what life was like for the thousands who came from Central America to make their homes in the neighborhoods around the park? The answer is yes, thanks to a time capsule that is to be opened in 2093.

Moved by the devastation in El Salvador, leaders of a predominantly Korean church in Los Angeles have donated about $3 million in medicine and other supplies to victims of last week's 7.6 magnitude earthquake. The Oriental Mission Church, on the western edge of Koreatown, will formally present its gift today to the Salvadoran government and the nonprofit El Rescate community organization, which will transport the goods to El Salvador later this week.

It's as primitive as King Kong's jungle on Skull Island. It's as basic as cops and doughnut shops, as basic as boy-meets-girl, boy-loses-girl, boy-wants-to-kill- mother-in-law. It's only cerebral if your brains are in your feet. It's reggae music--sort of Deadhead music from the Caribbean. Reggae has the beat, but it can't tell time because reggae songs seem to last for weeks at a time. But your feet don't care--they know what to do. They move. And reggae is everywhere, except on the radio.
