The pressure from one student's parents to graduate at the top of his high school class was so great he became suicidal. Two girls who were best friends since kindergarten turned into bitter enemies trying to outrank the other. Saugus High School officials cite such incidents to partly explain why they have decided to eliminate valedictorian, salutatorian and top 10 honors for students beginning with this year's June 22 graduation ceremony.

Although the competition should be spirited among the more than 12,000 high school athletes expected to participate in the L.A. Watts Summer Games that begin Saturday, the emphasis will be on having fun. West Torrance will play host to part of the baseball competition. West Coach Harry Jenkins, whose team plays Fremont at 9 a.m. Saturday, expects the Warriors to be relaxed.

Sixteen-year-old Oscar Flores was ringing up a customer's tab at a little Tijuana cafe last week when an inebriated man from southern Mexico staggered in with a tale of woe. Flores, noting the downtrodden man's hard luck, thought about how he would feel if there were no one who would listen to him and began to scribble a poem on a napkin taken from the counter.
