For John Bernard, co-designer and president of 26 Red, the best place to be early on a Saturday morning is a swap meet. That's where he goes to add to his collection of old gas cans and station signs, blown-glass bottles and, especially, used clothing. He wanders the rows of vendors for '70s-era sweaters with horizontal stripes, velour pullovers and polyester pants.

When the raddest kid on the beach grows up and wants to trade in his neon trunks, he probably won't head to the nearest Brooks Brothers. But what he may consider is Newport Blue, a sportswear maker that caters to men 25 to 40 years old who still want that casual look but no longer want to parade about in skull-and-crossbones T-shirts or skintight board shorts. The Tustin-based firm is headed by John Bernards, one of the old-timers in the surf-wear industry.

I must express my thanks for Lynn Smith's article regarding how the writers strike may affect daytime serials ["A Cliffhanger for Soaps," Nov. 12].

The U.S. military briefly suspended relief flights today after a Navy helicopter with 10 people aboard crashed in this provincial capital, injuring several people.

The weather was clear at the time of the crash, the first during the aid effort. Maj. Dwight C.
