It may have looked a wee bit unorthodox, sending your 6-foot-5, .400 hitter up to the plate to lay down a bunt to lead off the top of the fifth inning in the most important game of the season.

Luke was stealing home, and only a few in Dodger Stadium seemed to notice. Luke managed to avoid teammate Crosby Spencer, who was standing in the batter's box awaiting the pitch.

Under a searing flood of lights, Dan Kaneyuki approaches the microphone with his tenor saxophone, stage center and alone. He knows this is it. The weight of the competition rests on these next 140 measures of music. One flub could mean the difference between first place and runner-up. Or worse. The overflowing audience looks on. Dan closes his eyes, exhales deeply and hits the first note of "Moonlight in Vermont": a C-sharp.

Re "Student Musicians Sent Home From Sydney" (Sept. 13): Sending home four students from Sydney was a petty, tyrannical act by the representatives of El Dorado High. The drinking age in Sydney happens to be 18. The matter should have been dealt with back in the U.S. Orange County is known for its petty, right-wing, reactionary, zero-tolerance policies. The phone message of the school states that El Dorado is a place for the development of the intellect and "character." The only character that is developed in Orange County schools is that of prison guards for the police state that is developing in this country!

El Dorado High forward Ignacio Cid isn't sure what was more painful--the throbbing in his right knee or watching his teammates celebrate a 2-1 overtime victory over Palm Springs Wednesday in the second round of the Southern Section Division II boys' soccer playoffs. "That was the worst day," Cid said. "We scored and there was a big dog pile and I couldn't even run over there."
