UCLA's secondary wasn't tested in the Bruins' 37-14 season-opening victory over Cal State Fullerton because the Titans attempted only four passes. The Bruins didn't get to use their nickel--five-back--defense. However, they should get plenty of work in Saturday's game against Brigham Young, which is averaging 341 yards per game and ranks sixth in the nation in passing. "I'd like to have a little bit more action than I did last week," cornerback Carlton Gray said.

Re "Giving New Meaning to 'Youth Vote,' " March 9: In 1971, 18-year-olds won the right to vote. They felt that if they were able to die for their country, they should be able to choose who was sending them. In a sense, that is what we as teenagers are asking. We are asking to choose who will affect our lives financially. We may not be old enough to fight the war going on now, but the decisions being made by our government will not only affect our generation but our generation's children, and we should have some influence.

The late Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist took a powerful sedative during his first decade on the high court and grew so dependent on it that he became delusional and tried to escape from a hospital in his pajamas when he stopped taking the drug in 1981, according to newly released FBI files. The FBI this week released 1,561 pages from its files on Rehnquist in response to Freedom of Information Act requests filed after his death in September 2005.

Retired pharmaceutical executive Edward Adams sees nothing unusual in the way he holds his stocks: on paper certificates in a bank's safety deposit box, backed up by records held in his house safe. "I don't know the security of their system, but I know the security of mine," Adams said from his suburban Philadelphia home. "Could [the brokers' system] be compromised in some way? Could a blip erase your holdings? I have no idea."

With all the patience of an archeologist excavating an ancient site, writer Norma Lorre Goodrich spent years unearthing the story of King Arthur. For centuries the story was thought to be a fable, with British roots and a powerful appeal to generations. But beneath the legend of Camelot and Queen Guinevere, the Knights of the Round Table and Lancelot, Goodrich discovered what she called the true story: King Arthur was not a myth but an actual person, born to a royal family.

The Shields is among the prettiest small craft that sail Newport Harbor. It's easy to spot a Shields because the design is old-fashioned compared to racing hulls, which are beamy and have a chopped-off appearance bow and stern. A Shields' overhangs seem extreme. The well-proportioned leg-o'-mutton rig, almost evenly divided between mainsail and foresail, seems odd to those accustomed to "handkerchief" mainsails and vast overlapping foresails.

Most of the time, capsules simply can't be found. Some of the time, capsules can be -- but their contents have disintegrated. This time capsule is different, however. Workers carefully demolishing the ABC Entertainment Center and Shubert Theatre in Century City have discovered a hidden box filled with mementos that are completely intact -- and totally mysterious.
