TORONTO - The entertainment world these days is filled with hyphenates: bubble-gum pop queens trying their hands at acting, film auteurs flocking to cable TV. At the Toronto International Film Festival this year, a different trend was on display, as a number of longtime movie actors used their connections and leverage accumulated in front of the camera to nab the big gig behind it: directing. Every generation sees a performer or two who toggles easily between acting and directing - Charlie Chaplin, Orson Welles and Clint Eastwood, to name a few. But these days, it seems to be more common for actors to take a whirl in the director's chair.

An advocacy group known for its criticism of the Roman Catholic Church's handling of sex-abuse allegations called for the removal of a director of a Lutheran task force on sexuality. The Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests accused the Rev. James Childs Jr. of helping cover up accusations that a seminary student had behaved inappropriately with boys. The student became a minister and was later convicted of sexual assault involving a child.

CHICAGO--The Rev. James M. Childs Jr. will start work Friday as director of a four-year study of homosexuality ordered last year by an assembly of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The study will produce a sexuality statement and shape policy. Liberal Lutherans have urged ordination of openly gay pastors and blessings for same-sex couples.

The Lutherans' 5.1 million members face a challenge to "talk openly with one another, to disagree with one another about human sexuality and, more particularly, the place of gay and lesbian people in our congregations and ministry," Mark Hanson told a conference of pastors. The Rev. James M. Childs Jr.

Sure enough, just after the entree was served in USC's Doheny Memorial Library, waiters brought the piece de resistance --fried green tomatoes. True Southerners, such as Dr. Frank Thompson, said the tomatoes should have been a little greener. But they were a unusual touch to the Friends of the USC Libraries Scripter Award black-tie dinner Saturday honoring Alabama writer Fannie Flagg. Flagg is the author of "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe."

Home to Los Angeles' powerbrokers a century ago, USC's fraternity row is a hodgepodge of beach volleyball pits constructed in front of fading Victorian houses, a place where toilet paper streamers wrap around fluted columns and Greek letters are painted into beer-stained sidewalks. But landmarks pop up in unusual places, and here, at 715 W. 28th St., one of the frat houses has salvaged a little of the old dignity by earning the designation of a city cultural and historical monument.

A library and classroom building for a Catholic women's college would be a welcome addition to many neighborhoods, but protests from local preservationists have stalled such a project at the Mt. St. Mary's College campus in South-Central. College officials say the two-story building is needed to ease crowding at the school, which has about 900 students, 300 more than it did five years ago.

The gallery setting was exhilarating--cocktails amid the Art Center College of Design's display of student-designed futuristic cars, student drawings of nudes and an exhibition of clever advertising projects. But the tempo only intensified at the Art Center One-Hundred's 10th anniversary dinner-dance hosted by Alyce and Spud Williamson.
