Unhappy with its name as this multicultural decade began, the venerable National Conference of Christians and Jews announced in 1991 that it would be known henceforth simply as "The National Conference." The ensuing confusion was heard coast-to-coast: "The National Conference . . . of what?" "When is that national conference anyway?"

As he fended off kisses and bearhugs, it was clear that CBS/Broadcasting Group president Howard Stringer was a jubilant man--and not just for the obvious reason. His network is already ranked first in the ratings, then last week, with the airing of the seven-game World Series, CBS had its best ratings score since 1984, Stringer said. "I would say the mood is buoyant bordering on euphoric," crowed the network executive. That wasn't the obvious reason at the Century Plaza Monday night.

After living in Orange County 16 years, enjoying the lifestyle but feeling a strong sense of racial isolation, Xerox executive Betty Arnold, an African American, has found a sense of community. As the new president of the Orange County chapter of the National Conference--formerly called the National Conference of Christians and Jews--Arnold has found people who share her commitment to diversity, if not her culture and color.

Like legions of other recently liberated students, about 25 San Fernando Valley teenagers are scheduled to leave this morning for camp--in their case, a weeklong session in the San Bernardino Mountains. But organizers of the Brotherhood-Sisterhood Camp say this group can forget about typical high jinks like midnight panty raids and games of Marco Polo in the lake.

It is really too bad to see how so many people are giving up on the Lakers, especially Jim Murray. They may be getting older, but Showtime is far from over. As long as Magic Johnson, James Worthy and Jerry West are around, the Forum will be a stage. Magic still has a few years to go, and what are the chances of "Big Game" James ever shooting that poorly again? Vlade Divac will be a legitimate center in a year or two, and the Lakers are only a player or two from another parade at City Hall.
