For the many thousands of Santa Ana Freeway travelers who pass it each day, the Assyrian-style former Uniroyal tire plant is a wonderful diversion. The fanciful, 1,700-foot-long facade resembles a set from the Babylon sequence of D. W. Griffiths' silent spectacle "Intolerance."

Instead of the predictable red, white and blue, the city appeared draped in magenta, vermilion, yellow and aqua. The Games also took place amid ephemeral struc- tures made of cardboard, fabric and fancy. Balloons, murals and wafting pennants lined the boulevards.
