Surf's Up: The Surf Industry Manufacturers Assn. in Corona del Mar says surfing sales were up for 1994. The estimated number of surfers in the United States grew to 1.48 million, up from 1.35 million for 1993 and 1.1 million the year before. That figure is based in part on "core equipment sales" of wet suits and surfboards. Surfboard sales rose to 315,000 this year, the trade group said, up from 285,000 for 1993. And sales of wet suit rose to 467,000, up from 425,000.

On the official records, it's Case No. 1474: two American pilots--a captain and a lieutenant--shot down on a bombing run over the jungles of Vietnam in 1969. For 28 years, the unnamed hill where they crashed, 130 miles southwest of Da Nang, lay as undisturbed as a ghost-town cemetery, even as the lost airmen became part of what for the U.S. is the great unresolved issue of the Vietnam War--the fate of 1,568 Americans still listed as missing.
