Can ancestral Native American diets provide the clue to controlling adult-onset diabetes? Native Seeds-SEARCH of Tucson, one of the country's most respected seed-preservation groups, is so sure of it that the current catalogue offers what are described as "a number of diabetes-control foods" that can be grown or purchased in the Southwest, where Native Americans have one of the nation's highest rates of diabetes.

A victory over Seattle-Pacific on Saturday night at North Campus Stadium would give the Cal State Northridge soccer team a school-record unbeaten streak of 13-0-1. The Matadors are 12-0-1 in their last 13 games. Northridge had a bye in the first round of the NCAA West Regional last week. Seattle-Pacific outlasted Chico State, 1-0, in a game decided after 11 rounds of penalty kicks. CSUN last played Seattle-Pacific in the playoffs a season ago.

The phone hasn't stopped ringing with the question "Where can I get a moringa tree?" since a story, "A Common Tree With Rare Power," appeared in the March 27 edition of The Times.

I was disappointed. I had checked into Loews Ventana Canyon Resort hoping for a room with a city view. The lights would be beautiful at night in the clear desert air, I thought. But my room was tucked into the back of the 398-room hotel, facing the Santa Catalina Mountains. I had arrived late on an October day just in time for sunset. The flaming red sky I saw from my window was nice, but I still craved city lights. Until the next morning, that is, when I walked out onto my third-floor patio.
