It will be easy to spot Kady Pooler this year. Not by the way she looks, but the way she plays. Pooler, a 14-year-old sophomore at Dana Hills, is playing a game most of her peers are not familiar with--serve-and-volley tennis. The style was adopted by the great Martina Navratilova and is being partly embraced by Venus and Serena Williams, but it is rarely copied by junior girls' players or women professionals. Pooler's serve-and-volley game is a work in progress.

The students and teacher Milt Rouse, whose letter you printed June 3 and June 4, should discover other wheels: bicycles for students and a wheeled suitcase for the teacher who lives within two blocks of school. The reality is that drivers want to show off their cars and then they rationalize the desire. As a lesson in economics, I suggest students figure the value of a parking space at a cost equal to neighboring residential property, amortized like a home mortgage. I figure that comes to about $75 per month.

Re "Student Parking Squeeze Spills Beyond Schools," May 29: A minority of selfish teens have caused adults, understandably, to adopt residents-only parking zones near schools. This has created a problem for the majority of teens who are considerate and are already facing a parking shortage. Many adults suggest that the simple answer is for the students to walk to school or to carpool. As with many simple answers, this one is flawed. I am a teacher at Dana Hills High School and live within two blocks of the school.
