Recirculated water trickles into the blue-bottom pool, interrupting the morning silence as Dave Schmidt sits in a patio chair on the handsome stone deck, occasionally sipping juice from a tall plastic cup. Most days he is at Wood Ranch Country Club in Simi Valley, polishing his three-handicap golf game and unwinding from a fruitful but sometimes frustrating baseball season as UCLA's pitching coach.

Dave Schmidt was raised the son of a Southern California history teacher who coached Little League and Colt League. From the beginning, baseball was serious stuff. "My dad taught me it was important to do things right," Schmidt said. "He's the one who formed my approach to the game and, as a result, I've always been pretty organized about it." He is more than that.

Montreal Expos owner Charles Bronfman said today he would consider selling the team but only if the purchaser agreed to keep the club in Montreal. The Expos owner responded to a report in this week's issue of Sports Illustrated that said Bronfman wants to sell and that a Florida investment group in Orlando or St. Petersburg might bid for the franchise early in 1990. "I'm thinking of selling, but not to just anyone," Bronfman said.

"George Washington Slept Here" is not one of Kaufman and Hart's more subtle comedies, and the La Habra Depot Playhouse doesn't approach it as if it were, giving this slap-happy tale of country living gone haywire an almost vaudevillian treatment. Director Dave Schmidt is not shy about playing it brassy or letting the cast whoop it up in their roles, but that's OK. This isn't cerebral stuff. This 1940 comedy is more an attenuated slapstick sketch--albeit a well-written one--than anything else.
