Rainstorms and hail lashed Mediterranean coasts and central Spain on Saturday, killing six people, authorities said. Spanish navy officials said two British men drowned when sudden high seas engulfed their yacht off the Mediterranean island of Majorca. Rescue workers found the bodies of four people on highways outside the provincial capital of Malaga, 335 miles south of Madrid. They drowned when floodwaters swept them from their cars early Saturday, authorities said.

At least four people were killed and 50 injured when a freak storm swept across northern Spain and southwestern France, overturning boats and uprooting trees, police said. The storm spread panic among sunbathers on Spanish beaches. One of the victims was a woman hit by a surfboard hurled onto shore by sudden, hurricane-force winds on the beach near Bilbao. At Zumaya, near San Sebastian, a 7-month-old infant died when the gale tore down planks from a flimsy beachside bar.

Space shuttle Endeavour streaked into orbit Saturday night after weeks of delay, carrying a new set of residents and another massive building block for the international space station. NASA had feared storms in Spain might postpone the flight for the second day. But in the end, the rain held off at one of the two overseas emergency landing strips and managers cleared Endeavour and its crew of seven for takeoff.

The revisions Verdi made in several of his operas are studies in maturity. The changes could be as small as the addition of a single note in a chord or as major as the addition of whole new scenes. In the case of "La Forza del Destino," a new ending transformed a sensationalist melodrama of double murder and suicide--the force of destiny--into a substantive statement about the human condition and the need for redemption.

The Criterion Collection's eye-opening laser disc on "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen" might well be called "The Amazing Misadventures of Filmmaker Terry Gilliam." Few lasers assault the viewer with such dazzling technique and such dazing, mind-boggling detail. This is one laser that makes you work almost as hard as the filmmaker . . . well, maybe almost.
