International Olympic Committee President Juan Antonio Samaranch probably will recommend that James L. Easton, president of archery's international federation, fill the U.S. vacancy in the IOC, sources close to Samaranch said Wednesday. A Samaranch endorsement would virtually ensure Easton's election by the IOC's 89 members Monday. If this occurs, both IOC representatives in the United States will be from Los Angeles. Anita DeFrantz was elected in 1986. Samaranch was expected to meet with U.S.

Four new minority members have been added to the board of the Amateur Athletic Foundation of Los Angeles, the group that distributes the $95-million share of 1984 Olympics surplus for Southern California youth. The appointments come several weeks after Mayor Tom Bradley, U.S. Circuit Court Judge Stephen Reinhardt and labor leader William Robertson resigned from the board, complaining that old-guard members refused to bring in young minority activists.

Storms of much less severity than previously thought could overwhelm the capacity of some segments of the Los Angeles River and cause widespread flooding, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said Thursday. Only last July, the agency, which has been conducting a study of the Los Angeles area drainage basin, said it was concerned that portions of the river would not be able to withstand a so-called 100-year flood, a storm of a severity that statistically occurs only every 100 years.

For most of the year, the Los Angeles River meanders lazily on an eastward course across the San Fernando Valley, bending south in Glendale on its way past downtown Los Angeles before emptying into the Pacific Ocean at Long Beach. Usually, it is little more than a trickle. But three times since 1978 it has become a torrent, clawing at its concrete sides and coming dangerously close to topping its levees. Muddy waves hurtled down its course like raised fists.
