Let's play "Final Jeopardy." The category is "Government and Politics." The answer is: "The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors." What's the question? Time's up! The question is: What is the second most powerful political office in the United States? Well, that may be a slight exaggeration. But other than the governor and the state's two U. S. senators, the supervisors are arguably the most powerful officials in California.

All 21 communities will be included in the special survey.

The U.S. Census Bureau is coming to town a few years early in 21 communities in southeast Los Angeles County and the San Gabriel Valley--communities that, because of their high minority populations and housing density, have been tough to poll in the last two censuses. Although census takers will not set up shop until October and are to begin mailing questionnaires in March, 1986, bureau officials already have met with local officials to coordinate the census.

Head down, Si Frumkin stood quietly as he was introduced to the group of about 35 affluent mainstream Jews. Although he was, for decades, one of the most relentless and troublesome voices speaking out on behalf of Soviet Jews, few in the room had heard of him. Frumkin mock-winced in embarrassment as the introduction was ended: "Since he retired in 1987, he has been devoting his full life to doing good deeds."
