Entrances by Alan Schneider (Viking: $25) "When I first met Sam, I wanted primarily to latch on to anything that might help make 'Godot' a success on Broadway," Alan Schneider wrote of his initial encounter with Samuel Beckett. "When I left him, I wanted nothing more than to please him." It began as a stiff few hours in which Beckett gave enigmatic answers to the hungry young director who was to introduce "Waiting for Godot" in America.

Unlike the state's appellate justices, who seek voter confirmation but do not face challenges from competing candidates, trial judges on the state Superior Courts are subject to challenge every six years. Few are ever forced to the ballot, and when they are they generally prevail, as did the three Los Angeles County Superior Court judges who were challenged in the June primary. But Los Angeles voters still have a choice to make in two races in which there was no incumbent and no candidate emerged in June with a majority.

Back in the days when audiences still fled his plays at intermission and critics called him a joke, Samuel Beckett woke up one morning at his home in Paris, much earlier than usual, and headed for the train station. Alan Schneider, who had directed most of the Beckett productions in the United States, had been in town to meet with Beckett and was leaving. Beckett wasn't sure exactly which train Schneider would be taking. Beckett waited on the platform for hours.

A 16-year-old suspected gang member was found guilty of two counts of first-degree murder Thursday in the drive-by shootings of two South Los Angeles teenagers. Jaylin Underwood was tried as an adult in the Sept. 10 deaths of Quinesha Dunford, 15, and Demario Moore, 13, students at Manual Arts High School. They were hit by bullets from a passing car near Normandie Avenue and 54th Street, said Deputy Dist. Atty. Alan Schneider.

Workmen on Monday started laying the foundation for a 16-court tennis center in La Cienega Park. The courts will be atop a 350-space parking structure that will also include a pro shop, locker rooms and community meeting rooms. The new structure will take the place of an 11-court tennis complex that once covered an abandoned reservoir on the west side of La Cienega Boulevard.

The June 8 primary ballot includes 21 candidates competing for six positions on the Los Angeles County Superior Court. That's a fraction of the court's more than 400 judges, the vast majority of whom are appointed by the governor. It's too small a number for the electorate to be able to correct any perceived political, gender or racial imbalances on the court, or to try tinkering with the proportion of prosecutors, criminal defense lawyers or civil practitioners who come to the bench. This allows voters to focus on one basic question: Which candidate in each race would make the best judge?

Chance Hunt's first professional acting job in San Diego is at a theater that didn't even exist when he left the city to travel in Europe in June, 1986. When the Gaslamp Quarter Theater Company announced its schedule for the new Deane Theatre (now awaiting a new name) at 444 4th Ave., he had never even seen the place. But when he heard that Larry Shue's "The Foreigner" was on the list, the only question in his mind was how soon he could audition for the part of Ellard.
