In response to Mayor Richard Riordan's and City Council member Joel Wachs' Dec. 3 commentary, "Give the Mayor 'Fire' Power," I would go two steps further than having the mayor just being able to fire department heads. I would like to see the very political, power-grabbing, steppingstone City Council become an advisory board--only. In addition, [create the post of] city manager to be appointed by the mayor. The City Council advises, the mayor directs and the city manager puts into action.

In Eric Shepard's article (Boys' Volleyball Bucks Trend, Aug. 13), it should be noted that the sport, in spite of its fabulous growth, still does not have a state playoff as girls' volleyball does. The CIF code states that if a sport is sanctioned in at least three CIF sections, a tournament can be held. Right now there are five (maybe six) sections that are sanctioned. But because three times as many girls play, because it would imbalance the number of playoffs between boys and girls.

Howard Enstedt loves to rattle off certain numbers. Ask him and Enstedt will tell you that in his 29 years as boys' volleyball coach at Palisades High the Dolphins have won eight championships. The City started awarding titles in 1974. He also points out that Palisades has reached the championship game 11 times and has missed the playoffs only once: in 1980 when an undefeated season ended prematurely because the Dolphins used an ineligible player.

Sarah Schroeder led a balanced attack with 15 kills, guiding Palisades High to a 15-9, 15-12, 8-15, 15-0 victory over University in the City Section 4-A girls' volleyball championship Friday night at Cal State Northridge. It was the fourth consecutive title for top-seeded Palisades (15-3), which defeated University twice during the season in Western League play. "We're a little quicker than they are and that was the key," Palisades Coach Howard Enstedt said.

Volleyball teams from Chatsworth, Harvard and El Camino Real highs will try to do something no Valley-area school has ever done as the 12th Palisades Invitational gets under way today--win the tournament. The only Valley-area team to make the tournament final was Taft in 1976, led by Olympian Craig Buck. "The team that wins this tournament can be considered one of the best in the area," Palisades Coach Howard Enstedt said.

The Palisades High School boys' volleyball team failed to defend its City 4-A championship Friday night, losing to top-seeded L.A. University, 17-15, 15-10, 7-15, 3-15, 15-8, in front of 350 at Cal State Northridge. Palisades rallied behind the play of Colin Wellman, a 6-foot-3 junior middle-blocker, and John Lee, a senior outside hitter who finished with 18 kills and 10 blocks. University, however, regained its composure and won the match by taking control of the fifth, and deciding, game.

It is not uncommon for team members to let their hair grow until they win a championship. But at Chatsworth High, the boys' volleyball team is starting a new tradition: haircuts. Weird haircuts--with numbers, arrows and squiggly lines shaved into some of the players' hair. Others have close trims. "For inspiration," said middle blocker Gene Urcan, who sports a vertical arrow with the tip pointed down on the back of his head. "We're getting into the spirit."

Second-seeded Palisades High will try to win its ninth City Section volleyball title when the Dolphins meet Roosevelt in the 4-A Division championship at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Pepperdine. "I've seen Roosevelt play once," Palisades Coach Howard Enstedt said. "They have a real scrappy program that's getting better and better." The fourth-seeded Roughriders swept Granada Hills, 15-8, 15-5, 15-10, Tuesday.

When star player Mike DiSimone's first kill attempt fell harmlessly into the net in the City Section 4-A Division semifinal Tuesday, the rest of the Granada Hills High boys' volleyball team braced themselves for a long afternoon. But role players such as Dan Elbert, Victor Chang and Earnest Yun stepped up, and the host Highlanders were able get past Palisades, 15-7, 13-15, 15-8, 15-12, and into the final.
