Harvard University President Lawrence H. Summers apologized late Wednesday for his remarks last week suggesting that innate differences might make women less capable of succeeding at math and science than men, and acknowledged that his comments sent "an unintended signal of discouragement to talented girls and women." In a letter addressed to "members of the Harvard Community," Summers said: "I deeply regret the impact of my comments and apologize for not having weighed them more carefully."

In a sharply partisan and at times caustic address to a Democratic women's group, First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton on Friday charged that Republicans were engaged in a "relentless campaign of negativism" designed to frighten and confuse the public. She said the fall election posed a stark choice between President Clinton's "hope and confidence" and Republicans "who would have us not be a community but a crowd." Mrs.

For 76 years, the men of the San Marino City Club have discussed local affairs, golfed and played tennis, and didn't have to deal with outside changes that to some make their all-male group an anachronism. All it took was one woman speaking up Thursday night after the latest speech in a series of club-sponsored programs to bring the hot-button issues of 1998 to the venerable organization's door. When Atty. Gen.

Sandra Earnest, the current Mrs. U.S.A., had a simple message for Raymond Temple School students. "Each one of you is special," she told them. Wearing a white satin sash trimmed in rhinestones that read "Mrs. U.S.A.," Earnest talked Tuesday afternoon to students of the school's anti-drug Just Say No Club about not using drugs and about making positive choices to better their lives. Earnest, who earned her title last August and is the former Mrs.

"The Torchbearers," being presented by the Stanton Community Theatre Friday and Saturday nights through the end of the month, is a play with two goals that work against each other. It attempts to deliver a serious message, but as a comedy. The message is not well integrated with the comedy, though; the play is divided into message-delivery scenes and funny scenes. When the message is being delivered, the play drags. But when the comedy is allowed to control things, the play is hilarious.

Motivated by her experience as a divorce lawyer helping women collect delinquent child support, Fixler wrote the 1974 state law that first authorized deduction of court-ordered payments from a father's paycheck. Fixler drafted the legislation after working with the Assn.

It's not easy when you decide to go for it. Especially when 5,000 other women are going for it at the same time. And don't know the way. "It's a challenge just finding a parking space, getting in here and making sense of it all," said Jan Ballback, a career management specialist and one of the 150 speakers at the giant Conference on Women, the motivational, networking grab-bag that drew more than 10,000 women Monday and Tuesday to the Anaheim Hilton Hotel.
