A group led by Los Angeles-based investor Burton Borman has succeeded in a proxy battle to take over Seattle-based Todd Shipyards, which two years ago closed its San Pedro shipbuilding facility. Todd and Borman announced that they had agreed on a slate of nominees for a board scheduled to be elected at a special shareholders' meeting Sept. 16. Under the agreement, Borman is expected to replace David Wallace as chairman and assume the duties of chief executive from Hans Schaefer.

Several sportswriters have routinely labeled Wayne Gretzky as the greatest hockey player ever to play the game. This is not true. Gretzky is one of the greats, not the greatest. If hockey experts were polled as to who was the greatest, a number of names would be mentioned--Jean Beliveau, Gordie Howe, Gretzky, Maurice (Rocket) Richard. However, one name would be mentioned more than the rest. That, of course, would be the great No. 4, Bobby Orr! HUGH MAGUIRE Newton, Mass.

A snake cult in the South is a subject that most playwrights wouldn't pick up on a bet. There's the problem of whether to show the snakes. There's the problem of getting an audience to identify with the bizarre people who worship them. Romulus Linney was raised in the South and doesn't see his characters in "Holy Ghosts" as necessarily bizarre. Troubled, yes. But no more so than many more conventional worshipers--and non-worshipers.

It's hard to separate the old from the new in this moody Pasadena garden, which has been almost 80 years in the making. Heavily shaded, full of leaf whispers and a trailing heaven of wisteria, it speaks of time, not trends, and a deep respect for things that grow--despite heat, drought and occasional neglect. Located around a Mediterranean-style bungalow from the 1920s, the garden belonged to one owner for half a century before architect Hugh Maguire purchased the property in 1988.

"Execution of Justice," Emily Mann's staged documentary about the Dan White trial, finally opened in Los Angeles on Saturday (at the Colony's Studio Theatre Playhouse), more than three years after its initial production and two years after White's apparent suicide. It's too bad we didn't see it sooner. As journalism and as theater, "Execution of Justice" is much better than "The Dan White Incident."

Iona Brown, the celebrated British violinist who led the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra from 1987 to 1992, has died. She was 63. Brown died in her sleep Saturday morning at her home in Salisbury, England, after a long battle with cancer, said her husband, bassist Bjorn Arnils. Brown was one of the few women in classical music to hold a leading position in an orchestra. "She was an inspiration to several generations of the Academy's players," Sir Neville Marriner, founder of the Academy of St.

His Eminence Archbishop Iakovos, leader of the Greek Orthodox Church of North and South America, is coming to Los Angeles, and AXIOS will recognize his quarter century of enthronement as primate and his 50th year of his ministry by naming him "Man of the Year" at a Music Center gala Nov. 15. The Harvard University theologian, who holds more than 30 honorary degrees from colleges and universities, has been decorated by two Presidents and received the humanitarian Presidential Medal of Freedom.

The line on "Guys and Dolls" at the Colony Studio Theater is even money: The voices are mostly terrific and director-choreographer Todd Nielsen's show clips along like a racer, but Frank Loesser's songs are mangled by Natasha (Boots) Walker's orchestra. Loesser's spunky music can never be permanently damaged, of course, but Walker's tinny synthesizers seriously mar what can be one of Broadway's most irresistible entertainments.

With the first installments of a projected Beethoven quartet cycle from Santa Monica-based Delos Records, the Orford String Quartet of Canada presents convincing evidence of its right to be included among the world's chamber music elite. Released to date--and, helpfully, on three individual compact discs, rather than the usual all-or-nothing set--are the five middle-period quartets and one early work. The couplings are: Opus 59, No. 1 and Opus 18, No. 5 (3033); Opus 59, No.

Last summer, architect Hugh Maguire stumbled upon the 1931 book "California Gardens" by Winifred Starr Dobyns. While flipping through it, he was startled to find three black-and-white images of what was unmistakably his former backyard in an old Pasadena neighborhood. "Sure enough, there was the wisteria trellis and a scoop-topped gate," he says. "And then I saw the herringbone brick path -- that was the real confirmation."
