Rick Honeycutt forgot his uniform jersey Saturday, so he borrowed Ken Howell's. While Howell's jersey made for a passable fit, Honeycutt would have looked impressive in a T-shirt and cutoffs Saturday as he pitched three strong innings in the Dodgers' 4-3 loss to the Houston Astros in their exhibition opener here. Honeycutt, trying to prove he's over the shoulder miseries that contributed to an 8-12 record last season, limited the Astros to one hit, a first-inning single by Terry Puhl.

Most cycling events geared to the bike-riding public really pile on the miles--25, 50, even 100 or more. The annual Newport Beach Bike Tour, in contrast, keeps the pace slow and the mileage low, giving children and beginning riders a chance to take part without being left in the dust. At nine miles, Sunday's event is less an endurance test than a chance to sample some of the best local biking areas.

Jack Whalen's beef was not directly with Mickey Cohen but with a couple of his crew, and it revolved around familiar issues in their realm: Who was scamming whom? And who would back down first? The dispute had its roots in Nov. 21, 1959, vice raids on the homes of five phone clerks who took bets for Al Levitt, a Woodland Hills bookie. With Levitt's records gone -- the cops had them -- a pair of bettors began clamoring for $390 they said they were due.
