In the desert, one dazzling social event follows another this year (was it any different in '84?). To keep up you have to run--if you walk you won't make them all--with checkbook open and pen at the ready. Right on the heels of the giant Eisenhower Medical Center fund-raiser (it brought in well over $2 million) comes the Palm Springs Desert Museum's "A Night of Tribute" on Saturday.

July 15, 1990 | Elisabeth Wehrmann, Having taught in Germany, England and the Netherlands, Wehrmann now writes from the West Coast for the German weekly Die Zeit. --Translated by Angela Thompson
"Others may become accustomed to these times ... but I ... a torn sea. I in the midst of the storm, I the mirror of the outside, as wild and chaotic as the world." -- GEORG HEYM They were the young rebels of 1910, "a troupe of prodigal sons on the run," howling in their flight from a world in which nothing seemed right any more. With their brushes and paint tubes and wild, pounding words, they set out against the paralyzing order of a German Empire which, on the surface, was functioning triumphantly well.

REAL ESTATE

In Real Estate Q&A (July 23) Robert J. Bruss states that "In most states, attorneys can charge statutory fees of 6% to 22% of" probate estates. I don't know to which state Bruss was referring, but it certainly could not be California, where statutory fees range from 4% of the first $15,000 to 1% over $1 million.

I am both disappointed and disturbed by The Times' anti-Israel obsession. It was exemplified by your editorial "Dangerous Deception" (July 9). With everything horrendous going on in the world, you devoted an editorial to an alleged incident regarding the arrest of a 17-year-old Arab boy. Where were your photographs and editorials when the Russians shot 35 Armenians to death in a single day? Or when the Iraqis were using chemical warfare against the Iranians?

In January, 1981, Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates began a systematic study of the County Museum of Art's future growth. Nobody wanted the new Anderson Building to preclude further expansion, and nobody wanted that further expansion to be unplanned and haphazard. Enter the long-range master plan, an 81-page document of drawings, objectives, solutions and floor plans.

By now, the new Robert Gore Rifkind Center at the County Museum of Art is certainly mantled in scholarly serenity that befits the world's major archive for German Expressionist art. The recently launched center itself is only open to students and researchers by appointment, but all of us can soak up an inaugural exhibition of 30 prints on view to June 7. The theme showing is called "The Expressionist Context: Artists, Writers and Publishers."
