Howard Lenhoff's organization is about to dissolve. And he couldn't be happier. Lenhoff, a member of Temple B'nai Israel in Tustin, is one of the founding members of the American Assn. for Ethiopian Jews. "We were created to free Jews," explained Lenhoff, a Costa Mesa resident. "Now that that has been done, we're getting ready to close and move our resources to Israel." Lenhoff, a professor of biology at UC Irvine, met a young Jewish Ethiopian man when he was on sabbatical in Israel in 1973.

Twenty-nine years ago, a doctor at a Denver mental hospital sat a sickly, slightly retarded boy named Tim Baley down at a piano and watched him run his fingers across the ledges and valleys of the keyboard. The puzzled doctor began jotting down notes. Baley had undergone hundreds of tests, but medical minds were still having a hard time coming up with a diagnosis for the boy's developmental problems and poor health. The piano test only deepened the mystery.

As scientists grapple with the mysteries of Williams syndrome, UC Irvine professor Howard Lenhoff can't help but wonder if past generations turned to folklore to explain the presence of people among them with the distinctive traits that accompany the birth disorder. "It seems logical to me, and to others, that the legends we hear about music-loving, kindhearted fairies and elves might be the way people used to talk about Williams," the biologist said.

Kudos for (your) well-written and uplifting article on the musical abilities of individuals having the birth disorder Williams syndrome ("Tuning In on an Enabling Birth Disorder," Aug. 21). Unfortunately, the names of two of the musicians were inadvertently omitted. One was tenor Dennis Butcher of Anaheim; the other was Cathy Krieger of Garden Grove, the guitarist-singer who composed the song "A Better World." Also, some quotes attributed to my daughter, Gloria, were actually said by Krieger.

Singer Gloria Lenhoff, who is profiled in a national public television special airing Sunday at 11 p.m. on Orange County's KOCE/Channel 50, is a talented young woman of warmth and vivacity. But as the half-hour documentary, "Bravo Gloria," makes clear, she also is mentally retarded. "Sometimes, people hurt my feelings," Gloria said at her Costa Mesa home. "I get very emotional and sad sometimes. It's not right for people to tease me."
