One hundred infant-toddler car seats in a charity offering Saturday morning had already been claimed by eager parents, but Laura Vlasin waited patiently for hours in the clinic lobby with her 10-month-old boy, hopeful that someone might cancel an order. "I don't have much to spend, and I really need a car seat," said the 21-year-old Anaheim woman, eyeing the steady stream of families arriving to pick up their orders. She received one three hours later.

Re "It's Time to Get Serious About Curing the Health System's Ills" (Commentary, Oct. 7): We cannot wait for Sacramento or Washington to reform our health system--we must start on this task ourselves, as we have done in Orange County. Business and health-care groups are working to resolve the crisis in trauma care--a microcosm of the ills of uncompensated care--lower the costs of uncompensated care, and ultimately prevent most injury before it occurs. The key to success is cooperation and the recognition that we need to fix these problems ourselves.

Raising money for trauma prevention can be traumatic. "I thought the eye makeup would be the worst," Dr. Milton Schwarz said as he wobbled around on mile-high pumps at "All Hallows' Eve," a costume party that raised proceeds of $75,000 for the Orange County Trauma Society. "But the socks were harder. When my son (Justin, 13) saw them, he got very upset," Schwarz said with a wink. Schwarz, a Santa Ana pediatrician, wasn't talking about the scarlet panty hose he was wearing.

Hoping to make riding to and from school safer, the Santa Ana Unified School District is offering 700 bike helmets for sale to elementary school students. School district spokeswoman Diane Thomas said that the $20 helmets are being sold for $6 each, making them inexpensive enough for low-income families to purchase. Most of the cost of the helmets was paid by donations from the Orange County Trauma Society.

Retro Romp With poodle skirts and pigtails, letter sweaters and slicked-back hair, the '50s bopped back to life on Saturday in the ballroom of the Anaheim Marriott hotel. Three hundred guests attended the Orange County Trauma Society's $150-per-person benefit--joining in silent and live auction bidding, dining on greasy kid stuff and rockin' the night away. In Style The invitations proclaimed a '50s and '60s theme, but one look around the party told the story.
