Do clothes make the band? In the case of Milli Vanilli, they certainly haven't hurt. The pop group, composed of German-born Rob Pilatus, 24, and French-born Fab Morvan, 23, is known for its highly danceable music (with four No. 1 hits in the last year, starting with "Girl You Know It's True") and their own nonstop aerobic workout on stage.

The look of disbelief on Jim Lutz's face said it all. The seven-year Taft High softball coach had every reason to believe his team was prepared to challenge perennial favorite El Camino Real for the West Valley League title. "We had a good talk [Monday]," Lutz said. "We had a good workout and the girls came to play softball." And the Toreadors lived up to Lutz's expectations . . . for two innings. Then the unthinkable. And ugly only begins to explain it.

Robert Heard, alleged killer of a classmate at Reseda High School, is a graffiti vandal with a criminal record who tried to hold up another student at gunpoint even while fleeing the killing scene, authorities said Tuesday. Heard, 15, was arrested Monday in the death of 17-year-old Michael Shean Ensley, who was shot after the two apparently argued in a school hallway about their rival graffiti "tagging crews," authorities said.

The Cal State Northridge baseball team began its trip to Hawaii last week for a three-game series on an ominous note. A fuel leak was discovered in the team's plane shortly before takeoff at 8:30 a.m. Thursday at LAX. After boarding another plane, the Matadors were prepared to fly the friendly skies when players heard a startling announcement while monitoring cockpit radio conversation on their headsets.

Despite the suicide of its skipper, the Soviet entry Fazisi will continue in the Whitbread Round the World Race when the 23 boats start the second leg from Punta Del Este, Uruguay, to Fremantle, Australia, on Oct. 28. His crew and rivals were stunned last week when Alexei Gryshenko, 43, was found hanging in a tree. He had been missing for two days after his boat's arrival from England in sixth place.

All but one of the 22 boats in the fifth Whitbread Round the World Race arrived at this stopover port by Saturday. On Monday, La Poste was still at sea. At 51 feet, La Poste is the smallest and slowest boat in the race. It is manned by a crew of French postal workers that rotates at each stopover. The skipper is Daniel Malle, the former postmaster of Lyon. All seem to be having the times of their lives.

As sailors, Jim Lutz and Rod Davis have little in common. Listen to Lutz, a 37-year-old part-time schoolteacher from Reseda, describe Liverpool Enterprise's rounding of Cape Horn on the fourth leg of the Whitbread Round the World Race: "We were pushed down 20 degrees below course with a northeaster blowing about 25 knots. We never did see 'the horn.' When we rounded it we were hit by a northwester with gusts of 50 knots, which quickly grew to 70 knots.
