Residents have access to a 24-hour valet, a library, a wine cellar, an English garden, a sundeck, a heated lap pool and an "entertaining salon" with a catering kitchen.

The heirs of the Budapest-based Jewish banker Mor Lipot Herzog have filed a lawsuit in U.S. courts against Hungary and its leading national museums, seeking the return of what they have identified as more than 40 works of art looted from Herzog's collection during the Holocaust. The lawsuit values the artworks, including well-known paintings by Lucas Cranach the Elder, El Greco, Francisco de Zurbaran and Gustave Courbet, at more than $100 million. "This is one of the largest — if not the largest — restitution claims ever filed in U.S. courts by a single family against another nation," says Michael S. Shuster, the New York attorney representing the family.

SHANGHAI - For the last two years, Karen Xie, 32 and earning a good salary at a media firm, has met on average one marriage candidate a month. They've all been Mr. Wrong. Some were too short or too fat, she says. Some didn't express enough tenderness. For her last date, her parents fixed her up with a man from their hometown, Wuhan, 500 miles west of Shanghai. Xie knew it was over as soon as she laid eyes on him. "He was a little bald, he had no hair in the middle of his head," said Xie, who has her own digs on the outskirts of Shanghai, which she and her parents bought to enhance her marriageability.

Recently, you magnified the tiny number of applicants admitted to UCLA because of favoritism from those who might help the university. Now you published a front-page expose on UCLA's fund-raising activities (May 23). I am a chancellor's associate because of a moderate annual gift. In my experience, UCLA's approach has been very low-key and less intrusive than most other charities. It is therefore hard to understand why this subject is newsworthy. GIL BEZAR Laguna Beach As a UCLA graduate student, I do not understand the reason for your continued attacks on fund-raising by the University of Californa system.
