The Robert A. Welch Award for Chemistry has been presented in Houston to Dr. Richard B. Bernstein, a UCLA professor recognized for his work in detailing molecular pictures of chemical reactions. The Westwood professor, 65, is considered a pioneer in the field of chemical dynamics. The international award--$225,000 in cash--is given by the Welch Foundation annually in recognition of a career in or exceptional contribution to fundamental chemistry research.

Richard B. Bernstein, a much-honored professor of chemistry at UCLA, has died in Helsinki, Finland, where he was attending a conference of Soviet and American scientists. Bernstein was 66 when he was stricken by a heart attack near Leningrad in the Soviet Union and died Sunday night. On the UCLA faculty since 1983, Bernstein was credited with a new field of research in chemistry--molecular beam scattering--as a means of studying intermolecular interactions.

Caltech scientists, using extraordinarily short bursts of laser light, have witnessed the creation of chemical molecules--an unprecedented step in the study of chemical reactions. "For the first time, we are able to see the birth of new molecules which make us and form the world around us," said chemist Ahmed H. Zewail. "We are able to see how bonds (between atoms) are broken and made and how molecules are formed in a millionth of a billionth of a second," he said.

When a New York publicist recently invited reporters to the breakfast launch of a new magazine, she noted in advance that the mystery start-up would not be aimed at children. After all, so many publications for kids--and parents--have been hatched during the past year that a new entry might have generated more of a "So what?" than a "Tell me more."

One travel trail this year leads to the origins of our nation as a constitutional democracy. Tri-city celebrations are already under way in Philadelphia, New York and Washington, D.C. commemorating the Bicentennial of the U.S. Constitution. A yearlong schedule of events will reach its crescendo in Philadelphia, where the Constitutional Convention was held from May 25 to Sept. 17, 1787. New York and Washington, D.C.
