It was, a doctor said, one of the worst cases of heartlessness he had seen. The woman, in the early months of pregnancy, was miscarrying when she walked into University of California, Irvine, Medical Center in the city of Orange. Another hospital had sent her, deceptively buoying her hopes by saying that the specialists at the university's teaching hospital would be able to save her tiny fetus. The doctors at the UCI Medical Center knew better. They knew that the baby had no chance of surviving.

On a sultry midweek afternoon at the grand new Resort at Pelican Hill, a scant dozen vacationers lounged at what is billed as the world's largest circular pool, flanked on one side by a Coliseum-style amphitheater and on the other by an ocean-view golf course. A few miles south in Laguna Beach, most of the 170 lounge chairs at the Montage resort's oceanfront pool were empty as the afternoon wore on. Cocktail hour arrived, but at 5:45 p.m. only a single table at the poolside Mosaic Bar & Grille was occupied.

Seemingly out of the blue and just two days after Christmas, the newly active Leo Freedman Foundation bestowed nearly $1 million on 12 arts groups and programs in its first round of grants. What a way to end a rather dismal year, dollar-wise, and begin a new one. Indeed, local arts institutions are bound to have their eyes trained on the Anaheim-based foundation in 1992 and beyond: With assets exceeding $12 million, its trustees say they will be doling out at least $500,000 in grants annually.
