"Cultivate perfection. . . . Never accept failure except as a growing experience. . . . Make it happen now," advised the perfume-scented cards that the attractive, elegantly dressed millionaire distributed. "The greatest deterrent to your success is yourself," she told the 200 young women attending the first West Coast Chinese American Women's Conference meeting at Cal State L.A. that day in 1982.

I just wanted you to know that I review your Crime Log every Thursday as a way to keep my awareness level up. I'm generally alert, but not to all the ways of attack.

The non-relationship between outside board directors' stock holdings and the company's stock performance was very well illustrated by Graef Crystal's "Paying Directors in Company Stock Doesn't Boost Performance" (March 12).

Directors are selected by the board's own nominating committee, which looks for persons who will be compliant with whatever the current board wants.

"It's not just the committee. The interesting thing is the crowd they will be bringing," Douglas S. Cramer said. Welcome to power partying, which will reach new punch when the American Ballet Theatre opens with its Los Angeles Gala March 1. When Cramer signed on as a member of the ABT board, he was convinced that the annual opening extravaganza for the ABT's L.A. stay could be a very major event.

Federal thrift liquidators here, beset by allegations of mismanagement and sexual harassment, said Thursday that they will exceed their goals for selling real estate, loans and other property that belonged to now-failed California savings and loans. The West Coast office of the Resolution Trust Corp. said that, in the first seven months this year, it has recovered $14.1 billion, or 98% of its annual target, from the sale of assets of failed California thrifts.

The trouble with First Century Families is that they have so much valuable history at their fingertips, so many descendants, and not enough time to talk about it all.

For the first time the organization and its chairman, Gretchen Dockweiler, videotaped the proceedings.
