San Francisco police are investigating how a swastika-adorned Nazi war poster came to be tacked up inside a police patrol wagon. Mayor Dianne Feinstein fumed that the incident was "plain stupid." Lt. John Carlin said two sergeants came to Central Station looking for the wagon and the poster, which had been seen and photographed at an anti-apartheid demonstration held by the Spartacus League outside the office of South Africa Airways.

Los Angeles City Councilman Robert Farrell introduced a motion Friday asking his colleagues to condemn the Century Plaza Hotel for allowing a trade show promoting tourism in South Africa to be held there, but stopped short of calling for an all-out boycott of the facility. "I believe this is an affront to us in the community . . . it runs counter to the spirit hundreds of thousands of people showed during the recent visit of Winnie and Nelson Mandela," said Farrell.

Woods has begun the year with two victories -- in the Buick Invitational at Torrey Pines and the European Tour's Dubai Desert Classic. But it has been a different story at the Nissan Open. This will be his ninth attempt to win the tournament, the only PGA Tour event he has played more than three times as a pro without a victory.

The days of apartheid are over, but listeners of Radio Pretoria can still wake up and sip their coffee to the strains of the apartheid-era national anthem, "Die Stem." They tune in to talk shows where pundits frown on the mixed marriages and interracial socializing that have accompanied the demise of apartheid. They hear debate over whether the AIDS crisis is helping curb the black birth rate, or enjoy cultural programs featuring German marching music and rousing Swiss yodeling.
