The questions of children--simple and sublime, brilliantly innocent and innocently brilliant--await Pope John Paul II at a little parochial school near downtown Los Angeles. If you were God (one of the students at Immaculate Conception School wants to know) what would you do first? Are you ever lonely or afraid? another wonders. Do you get tired of your job? Why did you forgive the person who shot you? And, inevitably: What is your favorite sport?

At 3:11 p.m. Wednesday, the 11 boys and 10 girls seated in Room 7 of Immaculate Conception School abruptly stopped their nervous drumming of fingers and their fervent, last-minute prayers. "He's coming. He's coming. He's coming," 12-year-old Herbert Barrios frantically whispered. "Oh, my God," gasped one of the girls. All motion stopped. The parochial schoolchildren held their breath and, eyes wide, listened to the sounds of footsteps advancing up the stairs toward the second-floor classroom.

An hour after Pope John Paul II's jetliner touched down in Los Angeles, First Lady Nancy Reagan arrived to prepare for her meeting today with the pontiff. Mrs. Reagan declined to speak with reporters Tuesday morning at Los Angeles International Airport, where an hour earlier the Pope had flown in on his airliner, dubbed Shepherd 1. Mrs. Reagan will meet with the Pope this afternoon at Immaculate Conception School. She and the President had met with him upon his arrival in Miami last week.

In another incident at Immaculate Conception School on Wednesday, the Secret Service agents couldn't get one of their cars to start. The papal motorcade was pulling up to the front of the school, waiting for the Pope to finish addressing the students so he could be whisked to his next event, when one of the Secret Service vehicles suddenly went dead--a black van carrying several heavily armed agents whose place in the motorcade was directly behind the Popemobile.

One Secret Service agent is taking home a nasty souvenir of the papal visit to Los Angeles. According to eyewitnesses and Secret Service spokesman Robert Snow, the incident happened shortly before Pope John Paul II arrived at Immaculate Conception School on Wednesday afternoon as the agent and two colleagues were setting up tables in the schoolyard. When the agent bent over, he was attacked by a bomb-sniffing dog belonging to the Air Force's Explosive Ordnance Division.

Shortly after mid-morning recess Thursday, the public address system at Immaculate Conception School in downtown Los Angeles came to life with a burst of squeaks and scratches. The eight classrooms of uniformed pupils grew quiet, and a voice of omnipresent authority crackled through the two-story schoolhouse. "May I have your attention please," said the voice, which belonged to Principal Leonarda Vaquilar.

Attendant Antonio Segovia keeps a solitary vigil over cars in a Hollywood garage, and, at a conference aboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach, a jazz band provides entertainment even when there's no one to be entertained. UNIFORM SPIRITS A uniform doesn't have to be stifling.

On the first day of the trial of a high school basketball coach accused of having sex with a Glendale girl on his team, the coach's attorney argued Wednesday that two other faculty members had coerced the student into making false accusations. The defense lawyer contended that two female coaches resented Paul Calvin Clark III's promotion to athletic director at Ribet Academy, the Los Angeles private school where they all worked.

OK, so the sun is shining, the palm fronds are swaying ever so gently and the surfers are catching waves down at the beach. In Los Angeles, says Kristin Zabawa, that's not enough to tell it's spring. For Zabawa, an animal keeper in the bird nursery of the Los Angeles Zoo, spring means baby birds. "We're just starting to get eggs," she said Tuesday afternoon, shortly after feeding a 3-week-old black-footed South African penguin named Art.
