Years from now (in a galaxy far away), some weary film historian will look back at teen movies of the '80s and wonder--what was with those kids anyway? So young, so gifted, so muscular and beautiful--and yet so messed up. So in need of inspiration, of goals, of parents that understand them. So in need of . . . a good script.

If you're one of those people who's been bemoaning the absence of yachting as a backdrop for a major motion picture, who's been waiting for who knows how long for a film with first-class footage of men against the sea, "Wind" is the picture for you. If you don't fit into that category, things are much more problematic.

"Happy Hands!" said the bookstore clerk. He rang up another $7.20 for a copy of the official Hands Across America commemorative paperback, assuring the customer that the notation on the cover was correct: "The profits from the sales of this book will be used to combat hunger and homelessness in the USA." A few feet away from the steadily ringing cash register, Dudley Moore and Ken Kragen sat at a folding card table, signing book after book.

Investors' appetites for mutual funds sold a la carte may be on the wane, but their hunger for funds served up through so-called wrap programs remains unsated. Mutual fund wraps, typically sold by banks, brokerages and now even some fund companies, are portfolios of funds constructed by financial professionals to suit an investor's individual needs, goals and tolerance for risk.

The Los Angeles Olympics returned a profit of $222,716,000, more than any other sporting event in history. Distribution of the money, which was described as surplus to satisfy federal and state laws on tax exempt groups, soon began according to a formula that had been agreed upon with the United States Olympic Committee in 1979. Forty percent went to the USOC, 40% to Southern California and 20% to the national sports federations, which regulate amateur sports in America.
