The big band organized 25 years ago by Bruce Rhinehart of Garden Grove decided to adopt the name Society for the Preservation of Big Bands. The band did such a good job that it's having a tough time getting playing dates these days. "We used to work 75 to 80 jobs a year," Rhinehart said, "and now we're down to about 50 parties a year," the result, he feels, of about 10 big bands that formed in the county in recent years. "We used to be just about the only big band here."

Remember the story about God parting the Red Sea? Daniel M. Hodes could have saved Him the trouble. For instance, last year Hodes took a 30-mile stroll on water from Catalina Island to Newport Beach. Earlier this year, he walked across the Cook Strait waters in New Zealand, humming Beatles tunes to himself and 20 trailing dolphins. And get this: The English Channel is next; then it's the rest of the world.

The envelopes, please. If they handed out Oscars for gala-giving, the Masked Ball chapter of the Guilds of the Performing Arts Center would sweep the awards for its "Carnival in Cinema" staged at the Disneyland Hotel Saturday night. The nod for best actor would go to Dr. John Jensen, who was so rakish as Rudolf Valentino that he had women swooning. Best actress would go to Susan Levine, as an unblushing, unblinking and unflappable bride of Frankenstein.

Last year actor Robert Conrad visited the Marines in Beirut and contributed $25,000 to the special scholarship fund set aside for the children of servicemen killed in Beirut. That's why he'll receive the Semper Fidelis (Always Faithful) Award April 20 at the fourth annual Los Angeles Marine Scholarship Ball at the Airport Hilton. The same evening Pat Haden, the former Los Angeles Rams quarterback turned lawyer, gets the John Wooden Sportsman Award.
