A turn-of-the-century Glendale house that was scheduled for demolition was moved instead to a vacant lot in the West Adams District early Friday as part of a city program to preserve historic structures and provide quality, affordable housing. The two-story, three-bedroom clapboard house, built in 1902, will be restored by a nonprofit carpentry training group at its new location in West Adams, a neighborhood with many buildings erected in the early 1900s.

Sam Hall Kaplan's "Lesson for Pershing Square" (May 5) appears to be an argument for benign neglect. The CRA has always had strong commitment to planning an urban design. While we have never suggested that doing anything is better than doing nothing, we reject the concept that if one ignores a problem it will go away. The agency's purpose is to create an attractive, usable open space--inviting to visitors, office employees and the many residents of downtown. It would be naive to believe that all the current occupants are simply innocent unfortunates seeking a brief moment of peace and quiet.

A year ago, the Newport Harbor Art Museum had a show called "The Interpretive Link," which examined the fine threads that tied the Abstract Surrealism of such largely European artists as Arshile Gorky and Andre Masson to the Abstract Expressionism that blossomed in this country mid-century with such artists as Jackson Pollock and Barnett Newman. Now the museum is offering recent work by Los Angeles artist Marc Pally in a one-man show organized by associate curator Anne Ayres.

In government realms, 1998 for the San Fernando Valley was like spring on a farm: Seeds were planted, things took root, but the fruit has yet to ripen. The most obvious example is the drive for Valley cityhood, a troubled effort that suddenly showed promise late in the year.

Millard J. Ryker's second-floor office in an old church in west central Los Angeles is not what most executives aspire to. The plaster is cracked. The desk is industrial strength. None of the chairs match, and the plant on the bookshelf is dead. Ryker admits he has not watered it since August, when the latest round of mental health funding cuts targeted his Community Counseling Service. The months since have been a scramble to save the service.

The Los Angeles City Council is edging warily toward an unfamiliar and uncomfortable role--the investigation of a sitting mayor. A committee headed by one of the council's more reflective, least combative members, Michael Woo, today begins the task of monitoring the progress of a probe, already under way by the office of City Atty. James K. Hahn, of Mayor Tom Bradley's relationship with two financial institutions that have done business with the city. With Woo's Governmental Operations Committee testing the waters, the City Council is going to have to decide whether it wants to become a participant in the conflict-of-interest investigation--a role it has not played since a 1973 inquiry into former Mayor Sam Yorty's ties to Occidental Petroleum Corp.

Southern California builders and architects captured most of the Gold Nugget Awards presented Friday during the 22nd annual Pacific Coast Builders Conference in San Francisco.
