He won convincingly over his eight rivals. At the end of the six-furlong $109,400 Hollywood Juvenile Championship, Hilco Scamper was 7 1/2 lengths ahead of Little Red Cloud.

The deaths of the two schoolgirls were particularly gruesome. While walking along a narrow rural road to a friend's birthday party, they were crushed by a 50-ton mine-clearing vehicle that was moving during a U.S. Army training exercise. Last week, two GIs accused of negligent homicide in connection with the fatal accident were acquitted in U.S. courts-martial. Ever since, one of the most intense waves of anti-Americanism in recent years has swept through South Korea.

Although he was raised in relative poverty, living across the street from a county dump in East Los Angeles for much of his youth, Phillip J. Stevens counts himself among the fortunate American Indians. For starters, he says, he was able to attend and graduate from UCLA's engineering school. And then, after working for TRW for a dozen years, and collecting several patents in the field of rocket propulsion in the process, Stevens achieved his goal of starting his own company, Ultrasystems Inc.

Sioux leaders chose a 59-year-old Newport Beach man Thursday to be their first war chief in more than a century and lead the battle to recover their ancestral land in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Phillip J. Stevens was named to this post, a Sioux spokesman said, so the Sioux tribes could show a united front in their campaign to persuade the federal government to pay $3.1 billion in reparations and return 1.3 million acres in South Dakota.

A tornado blew through a small Central Texas community Saturday, damaging houses and injuring at least four people, authorities said. The storm cut a wide swath east of Thornton, said Aubrey Briggs, mayor pro tem of the city of about 500 people about 35 miles east of Waco. "It missed the city. It was pretty widespread and pretty destructive," Briggs said. "My sister-in-law saw it. She said it was just a red cloud. It must have been sucking dirt out of the ground."

The great thing about a pub crawl in downtown Fullerton is that the pubs are actually within crawling distance of one another--though most people prefer to walk it. Just keep in mind that at evening's end, somebody has to drive home. EVENING 1 Once a sports bar, Downtown Bar and Grill has been radically spruced up.

Cather: Early Novels & Stories edited and annotated by Sharon O'Brien (The Library of America: $27.50, 1,336 pages) The Denver poet and essayist Thomas Hornsby Ferril once spoke of the West of his childhood as "a land without grandmothers," and, metaphorically, it was almost certainly true enough.

The two-part film is a major departure from previous dramas about 19th century American Indians -- not least because it grounds their experience in harsh reality rather than myth.
