The UCLA basketball team held its first fall practice Friday in preparation for what was expected to be a season of redemption. The successful recruitment of four of the nation's top freshmen fueled high hopes the Bruins would enjoy a triumphant return to iconic Pauley Pavilion, resplendent after a $136-million makeover. But with all the anticipation there is worry and frustration. Shabazz Muhammad and Kyle Anderson, the most polished among the gems in that recruiting class, still have not been cleared for competition.

No More Neon: Monty's Steakhouse, the Westwood fixture set atop the Westwood Center building at 1100 Glendon Ave., has closed. Arden Realty Inc. purchased the building in early '98 with plans to renovate it completely from the outside in. Monty's had been entrenched in the penthouse since 1969 (the structure dates from '65). During its reign, its neon sign became a landmark and its dark interior saw lots of interesting events, including Snoop Doggy Dogg's acquittal party.

The divisions are still there, 40 years later. To many, the events that began in Watts on Aug. 11, 1965, remain a riot, pure and simple - a social breakdown into mob rule and criminality. To others, they were a revolt, a rebellion, an uprising - a violent but justified leap into a future of black self-empowerment. To mark the 40th anniversary of the riots, The Times asked nine people, all of whom witnessed the events firsthand, to recount their memories of six days that changed their lives and the course of the city.

Less than a year after reaching its long-sought goal of 10,000 officers, the Los Angeles Police Department is now seeing a steady decline in its ranks as the city struggles to find enough qualified candidates. Fewer people are applying to join the LAPD and, of those who do, a significantly higher number of them are being disqualified from consideration. Officials say budget cuts have slashed the advertising used to draw recruits while other departments are luring top talent with higher salaries than the LAPD offers.

They way they're playing, UCLA should be investigated. What? They are? The Bruins have been playing under the cloud of a Pacific 10 and NCAA investigation of their basketball program for some time now and it seems to have caused an unexpected reaction from the conference co-leaders. Through it all, the Bruins keep on winning. UCLA completed a difficult 48-hour period Saturday with a 77-65 victory over USC in the Sports Arena.

The Palomar Pomerado Hospital District, dissatisfied with depending on blood trucked from an hour away in San Diego, will set up a North County blood bank in February. The district's board of directors made the decision Tuesday and hopes to enlist the cooperation of Tri-City Hospital in Oceanside, North County's other major medical center. Palomar officials expect that a North County bank will attract new donors, who would be more likely to give blood to a community-based operation.

As far back as Fannie Johnson can remember--and that's all the way back to World War I--her family has dutifully heeded the nation's call to arms. "I was little, but I remember my relatives being in that war," said Johnson, sitting erect in her favorite chair by the front window. Fighting in France during the war was Ernest Johnson, a fellow destined to be her first husband.

The image is of a lonely Korean woman in her late 60s, working in a back street bar in Shanghai. It could be Manila. Or Taipei. She is quiet. No one asks how she got there, so no one answers. The image and the silence haunt Bok Lim Kim, a La Jolla resident who has for a decade tried to raise awareness of sex crimes committed against Korean and other Asian women during World War II. The euphemism was "comfort girls." In reality, they were sex slaves.
