Shirley Baker believes she found her calling in the eyes of a stranger who, like her, was on the ninth floor of the Criminal Courts Building in Downtown Los Angeles earlier this year to show support for a relative in trouble with the law. Unlike Baker, however, the other woman seemed isolated and alone. "I had seen her sitting in the hall in the morning, and when I came out of court, she was still there," recalled Baker, 52. "We went to lunch and came back and she was still there."

Although Louis Brown was stripped of guardianship powers over O.J. Simpson's two children earlier this year, experts said Monday that does not prohibit the Browns from exercising custody of the children. The change might mean that Louis' wife, Juditha Brown, who retains guardianship status, must sign school documents or handle medical records, but she could still authorize Louis to perform some tasks, say family law attorneys and sources in the children's custody case.

When Johnnie L. Cochran Jr. compared Mark Fuhrman to Adolf Hitler on Thursday, Fred Goldman clenched his fists, twisted in his seat, and began to mutter angrily and audibly in a courtroom where the only sound had been the passionate final argument of O.J. Simpson's lead attorney. At the first opportunity, Goldman bolted out the door and down nine floors to the microphone in the grubby, echoing lobby of the Criminal Courts Building.

Acknowledging that it will be tough to find 20 Los Angeles County citizens completely neutral on the O.J. Simpson trial, a judge launched the second phase of jury selection Friday by excusing only those candidates with serious prejudicial bias. He kept several panelists who indicated strong opinions about the case, including one woman who said she was 90% sure Simpson is guilty of killing his ex-wife and Ronald Lyle Goldman.

Valuables of O.J. Simpson's that were not given away or transferred into a trust for his children--including 51 golf clubs, Chinese rugs and a nearly $25,000 lamp--are ordinary, necessary household items and therefore not subject to the civil judgments against him, his lawyer unsuccessfully claimed in court Monday. Beverly Hills Superior Court Judge Irving Shimer disagreed with almost every assertion that Simpson attorney Ronald P. Slates made about Simpson's property.

Fans come to the Senior PGA Tour event here to see 78 of the world's best senior golfers, but the ones who really drive the tournament are 476 volunteers who pick up cigarette butts, keep score, play chauffeur--and pay for the privilege. "Would you give up your job and stand in the rain for two days and eat cold Subway sandwiches?" said Marian Wilke, hospitality chairwoman for the FHP Senior Health Care Classic.
