Robert Arthur, 83, a youthful-looking actor who had supporting roles in such 1940s and '50s films as "Twelve O'Clock High," "Just for You" and "Hellcats of the Navy," died of congestive heart failure Wednesday at his home in Aberdeen, Wash., said his friend Harold Fairbanks. Also known as Bob, he was born Robert Paul Arthaud on June 18, 1925, in Aberdeen. After high school, he served in the Navy, then went to Hollywood looking for work as an actor. He was cast in bit parts in Warner Bros.

The flickering light of a dozen dripping candles illuminates magician Rob Zabrecky's gaunt visage and pronounced brow. Wearing an old-fashioned tuxedo, he resembles a cross between a 1920s vaudevillian and Lurch from "The Addams Family. " "Welcome to the most famous address in magic: Brookledge," he intones from the stage of an antique theater located behind a Spanish-style mansion in Hancock Park named Brookledge. It's a Friday night, and the 70 guests, all here by invitation, are insiders in the mysterious yet thriving world of illusion in Los Angeles.

Stepping into the middle of a dispute between a hillside developer and Pacific Palisades residents, Los Angeles officials have begun erecting a $150,000 safety fence between a cliff and nearby homes. Officials said Tuesday that they took the unusual step of hiring a private contractor to build the wall after developer Nasser Ahdoot failed to meet a deadline last week to construct it himself.

Eva Bartok, colorful Hungarian-born actress who made more than 40 films under several flags in the 1950s and 1960s, including "The Crimson Pirate" opposite Burt Lancaster, has died. She was 69. Bartok, almost as famous for her romantic liaisons as her acting, died Saturday in a London hospital. She reportedly had heart problems.

I refer to your July 5 article "Memos Show Herschensohn Watergate Role." I was in daily touch with Bruce from August, 1973, through 1974 and I am perhaps in a better position to attest to his genuine qualities than the memos cited in the article, with which I take no issue. The memos reflect only the man's duties at the time, which are only in contradiction with a sterling character because of their proximity to the Watergate scandal. To believe Richard Nixon innocent does not disqualify Herschensohn from serving the good people of California in the U.S. Senate.
