Ridgeley Scott describes the night his wife went missing as a scene of suburban normality. Shortly after dinner three weeks ago today, as Scott was helping his son with his math homework, his wife, Anita, "announced she was going out," Scott said. Anita Scott, 58, didn't tell her husband where she was going or when she would return as she left their spacious stone colonial in Upper Providence, Delaware County, Scott and police say. "That's the last we saw of her," Scott said.

The concentration of wealth in the hands of a very few has increased dramatically in the United States, a new study says. The "super rich" - the top one-half of 1 percent of the population - held 35.1 percent of the nation's wealth in 1983, according to a survey by the Joint Economic Committee of Congress. That figure was an increase of nearly 10 percentage points from 20 years earlier, when the super rich had just 25.4 percent of the nation's wealth. Although the study does not show the rest of the population getting poorer as a result, "it is proof that the rich get richer," said Rep. David R. Obey (D., Wis.)

Last of three parts "It could be a kiss-off gift," says the cultural leader of a $10,000 check that had recently arrived in the mail. It would be a nice chunk of change for any Philadelphia arts and culture group, this 10K, except when you realize that the donor who sent it is worth several billion dollars. Relatively speaking, it's the same as someone with $100,000 in the bank sending a check for $3. This donor hasn't emerged as one of Philadelphia's great philanthropic leaders, despite his capacity.

The Joint Economic Committee of Congress, which announced last week that it had made a mistake in a survey about the increasing concentration of wealth in the United States, said yesterday that it had mistakenly reported its mistake and that its original mistake was no mistake at all. Clear? If not, then it's back to Square One in the case of the missing $198 million. On July 25, the committee reported that the concentration of wealth in the hands of a few had increased dramatically, with the super rich - the top one- half of 1 percent of the wealthiest Americans - holding 35.1 percent of the nation's wealth in 1983.
