Federal authorities said tons of marijuana were shipped from Los Angeles by express mail couriers to a number of East Coast cities including New York, Baltimore and Philadelphia.

Ten people suspected of being involved in an alleged scheme to steal and cash tax refund checks worth $18 million were arrested Wednesday on federal conspiracy charges, authorities said. The 10 are among 20 people indicted Feb. 9 by a federal grand jury in Santa Ana. Prosecutors said the group schemed to steal about 6,700 tax refund checks from a Los Angeles postal facility and launder the money, and said it was one of the largest tax refund check schemes investigated by the FBI.

If George Bush wants to impress Paul Novotny during the President's brief stay today in San Diego, he may need to tongue-lash somebody publicly. As a kid, a cop for 30 years, and now director of security at the U.S. Grant Hotel (where Bush stayed last night), Novotny has had a close-up view of numerous San Diego visits by Presidents and presidential candidates. As a youth, he played clarinet for the Bonham Brothers Boys' Band (sponsored by a local mortuary). The band serenaded F.D.R.

The first game of the World Series will be remembered for a pinch-hit, albeit a pretty big pinch-hit. But overall, the bench may be the weakest part of the Dodger lineup. During the season, Dodger pinch-hitters batted only .210. And in the 7-game National League championship series the Dodgers were only 1 for 9. Saturday appeared to be more of the same as Dodger Manager Tom Lasorda pinch-hit for every pitcher.

In a sobering sign of the times, President Clinton said Saturday that he had reluctantly ordered security officials to permanently close Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House to vehicular traffic as "a practical step to protect against the kind of attack we saw in Oklahoma City." The decision to restrict access to the well-traveled boulevard for the first time will inconvenience Washington residents and tourists.

The voice broke with tension. Calling from a public telephone booth, the gay FBI agent fretted about being fired. Other gay agents had lost their jobs once the bureau discovered their homosexuality. "I didn't sleep at all last night," the agent said. "I'm just so damn nervous I can't tell you. . . . I have a completely double life." The agent, who fears discovery if described in detail, has reason to be anxious.

For this special Presidents Day feature, The Times asked readers, "Have you ever shaken Bill Clinton's hand? Played golf with Gerald Ford? Traded quips with Harry Truman?" One hundred ninety-one people responded to say that they had--and much more. Writers described close encounters with 14 chief executives--one with Taft and every president from Coolidge to Clinton--in settings as varied as the Oval Office, the campaign trail, a hospital delivery room and a high school reunion.

"In 1972, when I was barely 7 years old, I shook Richard Nixon's hand after he exited his helicopter and was being taken by a golf cart to his residence at Casa Pacifica. I will never forget the energized crowd chanting 'Four More Years,' the signs, pomp and pageantry. . . . When they tore down the building that housed Nixon's first law office in La Habra (my hometown) I stopped and took one of the bricks that was part of the building.
