Milt Schwartz was anxious. Any chief executive would be, summoned this way before his board of directors. Sure enough, they told Schwartz that his addiction had to stop, and they bundled him off to a treatment center. What an encounter for the founder and publisher of Sober Times, a San Diego-based monthly that bills itself as "the recovery magazine." Schwartz is not a product of today's fashionable recovery movement, as much as his career as a businessman may have benefitted by it.

The nation's major real estate trade groups say the housing industry will continue to lead the economy out of recession this year despite the failure of the government to provide any new stimulus. "We believe that as long as interest rates remain affordable, we'll see housing do its part" in advancing the economic rebound, Dorcas T.

Savings and loan executives meeting here Monday said federal regulators' zeal in trying to protect taxpayers is producing inconsistent, overly harsh reviews of thrifts that are scaring off investment dollars needed for survival. In a theme heard repeatedly at the annual U.S. League of Savings Institutions convention, thrift executives complained that regulators are pressuring them to bolster the financial cushions that protect against losses.

The nation's airlines are ill, and no cure is in sight. After a record loss of nearly $4 billion last year and a dismal first quarter, the airline industry has been eagerly awaiting the second half of the year, when the economy is supposed to rebound and boost travel. That would lead earnings to rise and make 1992 a year of recovery, industry officials and analysts have said. But some experts say the picture is starting to change.

The world diamond business has regained its sparkle after suffering the worst recession in its history in the last five years. The 23rd World Diamond Congress, held here earlier this month, found dealers, manufacturers and producers in a buoyant mood, with prices rising again and jewelry sales setting records. It was perhaps fitting that the convention should be held in Israel, which now cuts half of the world's diamonds and has led the recovery.
