Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that high-school athletes may be tested randomly for drugs without any prior suspicion of drug use, as long as all members are subject to the same test. The four dissenting justices argued against allowing any kind of wide-scale suspicionless searches. The majority argued, however, that student athletes choose a role with reduced privacy. KATHY SEAL talked with athletes, non-athletes and high-school principals about the ruling.

Tony Wang is a senior at Kennedy High School in La Palma who plans to study engineering after graduation. The story of his arrival in the United States was prepared by Abby Fung, a junior at Kennedy. On July 11, 1990, I arrived by plane in Los Angeles from my birthplace of Kaohsiung, in Taiwan. Although it was my parents who wanted me to move here for educational purposes, they chose to stay behind in Taiwan. I had heard that there was less homework, easier tests and no school uniforms in America, but more importantly, I had heard that everyone could go to college.

The high school "experience" ought to be a cinch to capture on film but it rarely is. Those dawdly, dithery days and nights too often come across as coy, mannered--worse, meaningful . Most high school movies are made by adult filmmakers who don't remember that, when you're young, you don't comprehend your life as a series of coming-of-age revelations. You're too busy being dazed and confused.

That's high school in the TV listings. But what's the reality? Do society's ills--drugs, gangs, teen-age pregnancies--make high school a nightmare? Or does it remain primarily the stuff of crushes, finals, cliques and three-hour phone conversations?

August 23, 1991 | TOM CLANCY, Tom Clancy's latest book is "The Sum of All Fears" (G.P. Putnam)
Some things you remember. The first time I went to the White House was in March, 1985. It was the day Konstantin Chernenko was buried. My wife and I spoke briefly in the Oval Office with President Reagan. I was at the time beginning work on "Red Storm Rising," and a new guy named Gorbachev had just taken over in the Soviet Union. The President was having lunch with Henry Kissinger that day to discuss the new chap.
