Calm descended on troubled communities from San Francisco to Las Vegas on Saturday as curfews and heavy police patrols deterred protesters from returning to the streets. Over the objections of San Francisco Mayor Frank Jordan, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted overwhelmingly Saturday to rescind an emergency declaration that had allowed police to arrest demonstrators simply for refusing to disperse. A dusk-to-dawn curfew was ended.

On the high-society block where Soviet President Mikhail S. Gorbachev and his wife, Raisa, will sleep tonight, the neighbors and their help know all about the demands of security. At Stanford University, where Gorbachev will speak Monday, students are taking the metal detectors and other precautions in stride, so anxious are they to get a glimpse of the Soviet leader and his wife. With Gorbachev's 8:45 p.m. arrival drawing near, hammer-and- sickle flags flap in the San Francisco Bay breeze.

A confident 1992 caper movie with a pleasant sense of humor, this film goes about its business in such a good-spirited way that it manages to make its familiar "Mission: Impossible" plot seem new. Its light spirits are due to both its ensemble cast, headed by Robert Redford (right) as the head of a San Francisco security systems firm and to director Phil Alden Robinson, who wrote the smart though convoluted script with producers Walter F. Parkes and Lawrence Lasker.

The U.S. Coast Guard halted its search for a tourist, who jumped overboard into the San Francisco Bay during a Valentine's Day dinner cruise, and the guard who tried to save him. The search for a Georgia 20-year-old and a cruise security guard will not be resumed, the Coast Guard said.

The dire struggle to survive in the U.S. on near-minimum wage jobs is the subject of "Waging a Living," a forthright documentary by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Roger Weisberg. Through sensitive, in-depth profiles of four workers, Weisberg drives home the point that hard-working men and women with full-time jobs find themselves and their families trapped in a seemingly endless cycle of poverty.
