Lydia Oluloro won't have to make the choice she dreaded: Returning to Nigeria alone, or returning with her young daughters, which would put them at great risk of genital mutilation. A judge in Seattle dropped deportation proceedings against her last week, ruling that it was more important to spare her daughters from mutilation than to respect ancient rituals. Oluloro, 32, is in the country illegally; her children are American citizens. U.S.

A little-known, infrequently discussed sexually transmitted disease is coming out of the shadows at Southern California universities, including three campuses in Orange County and at UCLA and USC. Physicians at university health centers say the topic is not pleasant. Even the name of the disease--genital warts--brings nervous reactions from students, the doctors said.

Like the dream world it seeks to investigate, Lawrence Beiderman's "1/3: a series of rapid 'I' movements," playing in the Fine Arts Studio Theatre at UC Irvine, travels a wide variety of imaginative turf. Seductive, talking whales, Play-Doh genitals and cartoon characters who escape the television set are just a few of the images that appear in a series of surrealistic vignettes that ostensibly illuminate the deeper psyches of the six protagonists.

D'Souza sounds in his excerpt like the prototype for all the Sam Kinnisons of academe who throw themselves into a collective shriek at the mention of the canon. While they pound the floor and yell something about picking up their list and staying home, the rest of us wonder why they pick up the pen instead of the pacifier. Then again, maybe chronic confusion of intellect with genitals makes them equate a new idea with castration. In that case, we can understand their frustration, poor dears, and when the tantrum's over, maybe they'd like to join the rest of us in the real work of education: living together honorably through understanding.

An Alhambra Municipal Court judge Wednesday ordered a Montebello high school teacher held for trial on three counts of oral copulation with a 17-year-old boy and reduced his $1-million bail. Outside the courtroom, the attorney for teacher Harry Christ Manos said he could prove that the most dramatic evidence found in Manos' Alhambra home, a glass jar containing severed male genitals, was merely a gag gift obtained from a medical school cadaver.

To his parents, Jeffrey Grant seemed to be a normal, healthy, week-old baby when, one morning last September, he started acting fussy and developed a 100-degree fever. As his worried parents drove him to the pediatrician's office--five minutes from their suburban Virginia home--he suddenly turned green. The doctor, who saw he was in shock, picked him up and dashed next door to Arlington Hospital's emergency room.

The state Supreme Court on Thursday let stand a novel ruling allowing a homeowner's insurer to be held liable for damages obtained against a policyholder accused of infecting his girlfriend with genital herpes. In a brief order, the justices refused to hear a challenge by State Farm Fire & Casualty Co. to a decision issued last March by a state Court of Appeal in San Jose.

Men who frequently sunbathe nude using ultraviolet lamps substantially increase their risk of developing a rare and potentially fatal genital cancer, according to a new study published last week in the New England Journal of Medicine. The study shows that the penis is particularly susceptible to the carcinogenic effects of sunlight, and it advised men who are frequently exposed to ultraviolet radiation in tanning salons, on the beach, or for therapeutic purposes to protect themselves.

A Torrance Superior Court jury ruled Wednesday that the artificial hormone DES was not responsible for causing a man to be born with birth defects so severe that he was thought to be a girl until the age of 14. Jurors deliberated less than two days before reaching an 11-1 verdict in favor of E. R. Squibb & Sons Inc., which manufactured DES until 1968.
