UC Irvine professor Michael W. Berns, director of the Beckman Laser Institute, has been elected to the Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences. "Dr. Berns is one of the most creative world leaders in basic and clinical laser research as it relates to medical diseases," said William E. Bunney, distinguished professor of psychiatry at the UCI College of Medicine. "This is certainly a significant honor."

On the seventh floor of the Orange County sheriff's building, forensic scientists have been quietly working on a pilot program to test whether the same DNA evidence that puts murderers behind bars can also send burglars to jail. Operating with a $495,000 federal grant, several scientists whose priority has been murders and rapes have turned their attention to home and commercial burglaries. The grant money has allowed the county to hire extra staff for the new program.

Re "Dearth of Teachers Discussed at Forum" (April 14): The Cal State Fullerton forum for education discussed the recruitment of teachers but missed an important source of highly qualified personnel--thousands of unemployed engineers and scientists in Orange County. Instead of interviewing applicants in Spain, Canada and Mexico, the employment job fairs should focus on older high-tech specialists within a 50-mile radius. Some of these technical experts have more expertise and even more teaching experience than many of our present-day educators.

When state legislators passed AB 411 nearly five years ago, environmentalists hailed the measure requiring polluted beaches to post warnings as a triumph in keeping beachgoers safe. But in the ensuing years, science hasn't quite been able to keep up and testing methods to detect harmful bacteria are too slow, some say.

For the first time since the academy was founded 125 years ago as the scientific adviser to the federal government, the nation's best scientists, engineers and research doctors will have a national conference center in California as well as in the nation's capital, academy officials said.
