On the deceptively simple face of it, Ben Nicholson's unexpectedly juicy exhibition at Woodbury University appears to be an exaggerated computer-aided vision of suburban architecture. It resembles a Utopian fantasy along the lines of Disneyland's "House of Tomorrow," circa the late 1990s. But, that's not the half of it. Nicholson is less interested in concrete, realistic possibilities than conceptual trains of thought, and that's the real subject of his show.

Paul Sago, president of Woodbury University in Burbank since 1990, will retire at the end of the current school year, spurring a search for a successor to head Southern California's third oldest independent college, university officials said Tuesday. The 64-year-old Burbank resident, who was credited with bringing fiscal stability to the school while struggling to boost its enrollment and image, said he plans to relocate with his wife to Oklahoma to "find some life outside academia."

Let me congratulate you on your editorial (Oct. 21), "Endowing the Future." As a college president, I am very much aware of the need that is evident in both public and private education for both public and private support. Sometimes it seems our society is shortsighted when it questions the validity of allocating large resources for the development of human beings--our greatest natural resource. In recent trips to Japan, Taiwan and other Southeast Asian nations, I have become very aware of the importance placed upon the human resource by leaders in those economies.

Architect Louis M. Naidorf's retirement after commencement this weekend from Burbank's Woodbury University ended a lifetime of drawing, teaching and managing that shaped the Los Angeles skyline and influenced generations of architects. During his architectural career that began in 1950, Naidorf gained acclaim for his designs--such as the famed Capitol Records building--that fused aestheticism and functionalism.

Woodbury University posted a 12% increase in enrollment over last year and a 28% hike over three years, largely because of a marketing and personal recruiting campaign aimed at giving the business and architecture school a hip image, officials said. The campaign has pushed enrollment at the 113-year-old university to 1,342 students, the highest since it moved to Burbank in 1987, said President Kenneth Nielsen.

And senior Jeralynthia Banks fashioned a witty white wedding gown from Hefty kitchen bags trimmed in lace and encrusted with beads and pearls.

After 103 years in downtown Los Angeles, Woodbury University packed lock, stock and lectern into moving vans bound for Burbank on Tuesday, hoping to rebuild its enrollment and reputation on the former Villa Cabrini Academy campus. Woodbury officials said they believe that the move from Wilshire Boulevard to Burbank--home of movie studios, Mickey Mouse and Johnny Carson--will help the school shake its image as a secretarial college.

Presidents of private colleges and universities in California were paid handsomely in 1995-96, yet none of them commanded as much as USC football coach John Robinson's compensation package of $505,016. Nor did they earn as much as the leaders of many Eastern schools--or even some professors, particularly in medical schools--according to a nationwide survey of federal tax returns by The Chronicle of Higher Education. Here are the cash compensation and benefits for the top 10 private college presidents in the nation and for some of California's higher education leaders.
