A chuckle was heard 'round the National Hockey League when, in the same week, Wayne Gretzky of the Kings took a firm and formal stance against fighting while the Kings were making a trade for Jay Miller of Boston, a player whose credentials begin with his records for penalty minutes. Miller chuckled a little, too, when he read that Gretzky was suggesting slowly initiating some rules against fighting over the next three to five years.

Joyce D. Miller, who rose from an assembly line job to the top ranks of American labor as the first woman on the AFL-CIO executive council, died June 30 in Washington. She was 84. The cause was a stroke, said her daughter, Rebecca Miller. Miller was an advocate for women in the workplace for more than three decades. A divorced mother of three, she worked her way up to leadership positions in the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America during the 1960s and '70s. As the women's movement gathered strength, she helped found the Coalition of Labor Union Women in 1974 and became its president in 1977.

Congratulations, Dave Taylor, on the departure of Sean O'Donnell in the expansion draft. "I think the game is moving toward speed and skill." Are you crazy? The Kings need a physical presence on the ice, Einstein Jr. They need it now, they needed it then. Do you honestly believe the Devils won only because of skill and speed? How about their physical pounding of their opponents? Go ahead, Dave, admit it, you would have preferred to play without Jay Miller, McSorley and Baumgartner.

Richmond Shepard's theater spaces in Hollywood have steadily become safe havens for the mime, the vaudevillian and the clown--undoubtedly due, in part, to Shepard's own career as mime performer and teacher. "The Art of M and M" (namely Karen McCormick and Jay Miller) is the latest invasion of the clowns on Santa Monica Boulevard, and much of it confirms that there's nothing like a supportive atmosphere to bring out the best in a performer.

There's no mistaking the Kings' intentions in trading for Boston left winger Jay Miller, a deal that was consummated by a phone call from King General Manager Rogie Vachon to Harry Sinden of the Bruins late Saturday night. One look at Miller's numbers this season will tell you everything you need to know: 37 games played, 2 goals, 4 assists, 168 minutes in penalties. A figure skater, he isn't. To his friends, the 6-foot 2-inch, 210-pound Miller is known as an enforcer.

Between a morning spent working with a sound mixer and an evening counseling pregnant teens in South-Central, independent filmmaker Vincent Jay Miller takes time for a late lunch in Van Nuys to talk about "Gabriela." As his pasta gets cold, he describes how he pieced together the resources to produce his first feature film. How he unabashedly solicited funds from family, friends and acquaintances, including his optometrist and high school wrestling coach.
