David Raksin, the noted film composer for Forever Amber and The Bad and the Beautiful who turned his hauntingly memorable score for the 1944 film-noir classic Laura into one of the most recorded songs in history, died yesterday of heart failure at his home in Van Nuys, Calif. He was 92. Mr. Raksin was the last surviving major composer from Hollywood's Golden Age and a onetime Communist Party member who reluctantly named names before the House Un-American Activities Committee. In a more than half-century career in Hollywood that began in 1935 when he was hired to assist Charlie Chaplin with the music for Modern Times, Mr. Raksin received Academy Award nominations for his scores for Forever Amber (1947)

"Writing is a Walter Mitty occupation," says Lee Moler, author of "Baltimore Blues."On a sunny spring day, he is sitting in the dining room of his home in Bel Air, overlooking an expanse of suburban lawn, while nearby a lone parakeet and a pair of finches chatter in separate cages. Arms planted on the table in front, he could easily pass for the main character, Lowell Ransom, the disaffected private detective who wages relentless war against Arab saboteurs up and down the Baltimore-Washington corridor, in the thriller published this month by St. Martin's Press ($17.

Despite an unusual public repudiation by the CIA, Daniel Shykind clings to the belief that he is a secret agent, making him mentally incompetent to stand trial on fraud charges, a Montgomery County Circuit judge ruled yesterday. Judge S. Michael Pincus agreed with defense experts who said Shykind will not help his lawyers because he thinks it entails giving away government secrets. "His factual understandings are distorted," Pincus said. "In other words, he can't tell his counsel the truth.

GOV. ROBERT L. Ehrlich Jr. got his picture in the paper after making an eagle, two under par on a par-5 hole, during the Capitol Open golf tournament in Potomac, Md. More recently, he carded what amounts to a political and governmental "bogey" (one over) or maybe even a "snowman," an eight, in weekend golf parlance, when he began taking advantage of a free membership at the Caves Valley Golf Club, one of Maryland's most exclusive venues. It wasn't illegal. He apparently didn't seek it out. The membership was there, a gift to the governor's office, not to its occupant.
