Air quality regulators, embarking on a bold new strategy to reduce smog in Southern California, want to hold the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach responsible for their pledges to cut pollution from thousands of trucks, ships and trains carrying goods to and from the nation's largest port complex.

Macy & Co. vacated the building. The elegant 1929 landmark department store is scheduled to reopen in December, 1995, as the school's law library.

Longtime real estate developers in Los Angeles used to know Jona Goldrich as an eager young immigrant from Israel, not long off a Greyhound bus, who installed window screens for a quarter apiece and cleaned up housing construction sites in such places as the San Fernando Valley. "He had his hat in his hand, looking for work," builder Julian Weinstock recalled. "He was very humble." Though Goldrich is still humble, his friends say, the hat has long since vanished from his hand.
