Dressed in T-shirt and surf trunks, baseball cap and high-top sneakers, he looks like the typical Southern California 14-year-old, a boy who'd be right at home trading baseball cards or laughing about Bart Simpson's latest shenanigans. But Yan Gendlin has been in the United States less than three months, having emigrated from the Soviet Union with his parents the first week of June, and so far has learned little of baseball and even less of Bart.

An immigrant leaves his troubled native country behind and travels thousands of miles to find a better life in America. It's a story older than the United States itself. And it's the story of Russian accordionist Nikolai Tarasov. In reverse. A musician with Russia's internationally renowned Moiseyev Dance Company for 18 years, Tarasov had it made. Fame, wealth (relatively speaking) and job security. But four years ago he left all that behind and moved to Los Angeles.

A group of Russian exchange students happily ventured into the chilly ocean Tuesday at Laguna Main Beach as part of a monthlong stay with Orange County families. For some of the students, it was their first chance to wiggle their toes in U.S. sand and play in the surf. "Wonderful," said Olga Kryshnyova, a 12-year-old from Moscow. "I like to swim, but I don't like cold water."

A group of Russian doctors touring Orange County medical centers to explore the way health care is delivered in the United States will visit the Laguna Beach Community Clinic on Wednesday. A UC Irvine professor who is leading the tour said the clinic was chosen because it is an example of "inspired care" for the physicians to consider as they seek ways to provide health care in their disrupted homeland.

And many called it a historic turning point that spells better times ahead for the nation and its people. "We are really glad and really proud," said an elated Marina Ouzdin, a Russian graduate student at Cal State Fullerton who is living in Irvine.

East met West near the corner of Main Street and Sleeping Beauty's Castle. Vitali Kjejevitch, 13, stepped quickly to avoid being trampled by a marching brass band dressed in bright red uniforms. Viola Shirobokova, 16, stared wide-eyed at the gateway to Fantasyland as Olga Kolesova, 15, wondered out loud in Russian if she could go to school here.

When three high school students from the Russian city of Serov visited their pen pals at Canyon High School on Monday, any doubt that they are basically the same as American teen-agers was eliminated when a photographer asked to take their picture. The three--Vika Medvedeva, Sveta Marchenko and Vova Drugov--immediately wanted to know if their hair was neat. The students and their English teacher, Olga Fakhrutdinova, arrived in Anaheim on Wednesday for a three-week visit to Southern California.

For five Russian sailors who left their country a year and half ago to sail around the world, the visit to Orange County this week has been a respite for frazzled nerves. "This is a beautiful place--it's a cool place," said Alexander Krivenyshev, 32, exercising his colloquial English. Krivenyshev, who was born in Siberia, left his job as an oceanographer to join the expedition. "I like California," he said. "We meet some people in yacht clubs and they let us shave and clean our faces.

And many tried frantically to reach relatives and colleagues in the Soviet Union to be assured of their safety in the wake of the takeover by right-wing leaders. "I was terribly scared . . .

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach), well-known anti-communist and onetime Soviet basher, took a major step this week toward international cooperation. He and Yuri Koptev, general director of the Russian Space Agency, bellied up to the bar at a country and Western spot in Santa Ana, and the congressman bought the erstwhile communist his first tequila. "This is very symbolic," Rohrabacher told reporters on Monday, the day after his effort at cocktail diplomacy.

Almost every day, Mikhail Gura and his partner, Eugene Kalakoutski, go on a shopping spree. They buy cars by the dozen, cigarettes by the carload, vodka by the liters and ship the goods to their home base in Moscow. Even before the sedans or cigarettes reach their homeland, the products already are claimed by private Russian companies and that nation's new class of wealthy entrepreneurs.
