"We are literally wounding the very leadership that is at the very heart of everything our military stands for," Vice Adm. Jack Fetterman said. "I think the country should be very concerned about that."

Navy Secretary John H. Dalton removed a letter of censure Friday from the file of an admiral once accused of attempting to protect an aide from punishment for alleged homosexual advances. The decision cleared the way for Rear Adm. John Fetterman to be nominated for retirement as a three-star vice admiral. Fetterman retired last year at two-star rank after he was removed as chief of naval education and training in Pensacola, Fla., in connection with the matter.

The Navy insists that there are no plans now to permanently dock nuclear-powered aircraft carriers in San Diego, even though a $5-million contract is expected to be awarded soon to renovate North Island piers so they can accommodate a nuclear carrier. Senior officers said the piers, which are expected to be ready for the new role in early 1992, will be used primarily for visiting nuclear carriers.

An F-14 Tomcat fighter jet lands on the aircraft carrier Independence every 45 seconds during flight exercises. Rubber burns, engines scream and the landing safety officer yells: "Clear deck! Clear deck!" With bright yellow foam plugs stuffed in their ears, a bevy of civilian visitors gathers on Vulture's Row, a deck overseeing the four-acre landing strip pitching up and down in the heavy seas. "How do they do it?" asked Father Luis Peinado of Loyola High School in Los Angeles.

One suspects that when Dotti Howe completed her plans for Saturday's Jewel Ball, she thought, "Apres moi , le deluge ." The quote comes from Louis XIV, and it translates loosely as "I'm going to be a hard act to follow." Louis, who dubbed himself the "Sun King," was a rather grand king, as kings go, and as kings go, he went the limit.
