The Boys and Girls Club of Capistrano Valley is growing rapidly, but donations are not, and that has some board members worried. The club, which moved from a trailer into a 5,000-square-foot building in December, saw its checking account drop to $900 last week before it secured $25,000 from the Santa Margarita Co. Still, the new infusion of money will only pay the facility's operating costs for about two months, board president Jeanne Workman said.

Tony Aliengena, an 11-year-old San Juan Capistrano boy, will climb into the cockpit of a single-engine plane Monday for a planned seven-week flight around the world that could put him in the record books as the youngest pilot to circumnavigate the globe. The 17,000-mile journey will also be significant because the boy will become the first Westerner in recent memory allowed to pilot a plane across the Soviet Union. Takeoff is scheduled from Orange County's John Wayne Airport at 10 a.m. Monday.

First there were telephone calls of support, then came television crews. At San Onofre State Beach, fellow surfers told Jim Curwood that they had heard about his missing American flag. Then a teen-age boy wandered into Curwood's bicycle shop Thursday with a question. "He asked me if he brought the flag back in, would he get the reward money," Curwood said. "He brought the flag in later, I gave him the money and out the door he went."

Susan Eisner had a problem. The 28-year-old film director was trapped in an airplane, at 19,000 feet, in search of a deck of cards. "I don't know where they are," Eisner of Los Angeles said with a yawn as she contemplated the hours of monotonous flying ahead. "Joe (Bell, 29, a co-director for a film about Tony Aliengena's Friendship Flight) has some, but they're in his bag--in the nose of the plane." The disappearance of Eisner's playing cards on a six-hour flight over a barren Canadian landscape one day last week was just one more rigor of life on the road with Tony, 11, the San Juan Capistrano boy trying to fly around the world.
