Most people enter Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center through the emergency room. Gang-bangers riddled with bullets. Mutilated accident victims. Cyanotic drug addicts. Destitute women ready to deliver. But young Sol Bernstein, fresh-faced and unscathed, came in through the front door. It was 1956, and the experience stopped the first-year medical student in his tracks. "It was like entering a cathedral.

The California Supreme Court today rejected without comment efforts by three Los Angeles County officials to yank the Paul Gann pay limitation initiative off the November ballot. A challenge to the constitutionality of the initiative was filed directly to the court two weeks ago.

Calling it a "mean-spirited . . . poorly drafted" measure that would lead to a mass exodus of top public employees, three Los Angeles County officials have asked the state Supreme Court to order a controversial salary-limiting initiative off the Nov. 4 ballot. Sheriff Sherman Block, one of the three officials, said his future in public life could be determined by the high court's decision on the measure. Block's $91,319 salary would be slashed to $64,000 if the measure is approved.

Protesters splattered the downtown Los Angeles County Hall of Administration building with red paint and handprints and plastered marble pillars with posters demanding the establishment of an "interim" medical ward for AIDS patients. The vandalism was the second such incident in four days. The graffiti, which included a stenciled sign with the words "AIDS Unit Now," was discovered in the predawn hours Tuesday, and crew workers spent until mid-morning scrubbing the building clean as an angry Board of Supervisors denounced the vandalism.

Labor unrest in Los Angeles County's sprawling public health care system spread Thursday as X-ray technicians walked out in support of hundreds of striking nurses, and resident physicians at the 1,445-bed County-USC Medical Center threatened to "shut down the hospital" by staging their own strike this morning. In a severe curtailment of emergency service, the County-USC trauma center and emergency room, which typically treats almost 600 patients a day, was closed to all ambulance traffic.

Now that Los Angeles County officials have acceded to requests to build an AIDS ward at County-USC Medical Center, attention turned Friday to whether AIDS patients in the meantime should be "congregated" in existing wards in the hospital. AIDS activists, demonstrating outside the county health department headquarters in downtown Los Angeles, argued that patients would receive better care if they were housed together. They accused county health officials of flouting an order by the Board of Supervisors to set up an interim AIDS ward at County-USC.
