Sir Robert Bell has never been in a sword fight. He's never worn armor nor gone on a crusade. And he's never rescued a damsel in distress from the tower of a well-guarded castle. Yet Bell, a bespectacled English literature professor at Cal State Long Beach, is as much a knight as if he had done all those things. Last year, the 54-year-old professor, who hails from Rock Island, Ill.

Even before the West Hollywood City Council last month approved in principle the establishment of an AIDS memorial, Bell had received dozens of phone calls and letters from people interested in seeing his proposal take shape.

Convicted killer-rapist William Archie Fain was found guilty Friday of peeping through a window in a south San Jose apartment while out of prison on parole. Municipal Judge William F. Martin, who heard the case without a jury, convicted Fain despite his defense that he was looking for a faucet to get water for his disabled car.

In October, 1984, Mr. Robert Bell trusted a doctor and told him his story. The doctor acted in accordance with the law and reported his findings to the San Diego County Sheriff. Within the week, Escondido's Times-Advocate, the San Diego Union and the Los Angeles Times published Mr. Bell's confidential statements to his doctor. What are we to tell one another at this point about trust and confidentiality, the cornerstones of psychotherapy? Can we believe and trust these values in the future?

The Clinton administration is seeking to reassure Russia that a proposal to invest $6.6 billion in a national system to defend against missile attack is not intended to undermine the credibility of Russia's large nuclear force.
