The attorney general wore orange. Everyone else wore Rogers red. U.S. Atty. Gen. Janet Reno, acting as an emissary from President Clinton, came to Long Beach's Will Rogers Middle School on Wednesday to sing the praises of school uniforms. She stood at the podium and, looking out, saw nothing but red sweatshirts, white shirts and blouses, and black shorts, pants and skirts.

Caltech students will peer through binoculars instead of their laboratory microscopes today to get a better glimpse of President Bush, who is scheduled to give the commencement speech on the Pasadena campus at about 10:30 a.m. While some students expressed excitement at the prospect, not all the 10,000 students, family, faculty, staff and guests expected for commencement will be Bush fans. Anti-war groups and abortion rights activists plan protests in front of the school.

President Clinton defended his proposed Medicare cost cuts at a senior citizens forum Tuesday in Culver City, arguing that even under his plan, spending on the government health program for the elderly would continue to increase at twice the rate of inflation. Under current projections, Medicare costs will grow at three times the rate of inflation over five years. Clinton would finance about 10% of the cost of his health plan by limiting the growth of that spending.

The Mexican delegation that visited Sylmar Juvenile Hall on Wednesday came from Tijuana, a city that--like Los Angeles--must contend with social problems that originated elsewhere. An economic boom in the border region has doubled Tijuana's population to about 2 million over the past decade. But, combined with the continuing massive influx of emigrants bound for the United States, growth has also produced a small army of street children--an estimated 8,000 homeless youths from all over Mexico.

The Archbishop of Canterbury concluded a three-day visit Sunday to Los Angeles, leaving behind his blessings but carrying home the burdens of an American church divided by issues of human sexuality. Throughout his visit, the Most Rev. George L. Carey--primate of the Church of England and spiritual leader of 2.5 million Episcopalians in the United States--cautioned the Episcopal Church not to rush to ordain non-celibate gays and lesbians.
