Normally, Christmas and New Year's Eve are the biggest days of the year for Hermine Janoyan and her family. In the Armenian tradition, her family exchanges gifts on New Year's Eve and celebrates Christmas with grand feasts on Jan. 6. Her two brothers come from the East Coast to participate in the elaborate celebrations, which are held by most Armenian families in their homes, or in dance halls and hotels throughout Southern California. But this year, her brothers did not come to celebrate.

As an active participant in earthquake relief for Armenia I found Esther Schrader's article "Armenia Quake Relief Stuck in Pipeline" quite accurate (Part I, July 23). I am happy, however, to report that in the last month the pipeline has been unstuck! Armenians the world over have raised $45 million for aid to Armenia. Seventy-five percent of this money has been allocated for projects now in the implementation stage.

Many folded their hands and put them against their faces as they prayed and meditated. The scene on Thursday morning was at the Forty Martyrs Armenian Apostolic Church in Santa Ana.

Soviet President Mikhail S. Gorbachev, visiting northern Armenia where a devastating earthquake killed tens of thousands, ordered redoubled efforts Saturday to rescue victims still trapped in the rubble. "The main goal now is to save everyone who can still be saved," Gorbachev said as he inspected the vast damage at Leninakan, Armenia's second-largest city. Eighty percent of the city of more than 200,000 inhabitants was destroyed in Wednesday's magnitude 6.9 earthquake.
