The University of Tennessee football program was placed on two years' probation by the NCAA for recruiting violations, but the penalty will not affect the sixth-ranked Volunteers' appearances on television or in bowl games. The NCAA reduced the number of scholarships that can be awarded in each of the next two seasons to a level Tennessee already has achieved. One permanent coaching position at Tennessee was reduced, but all Division I schools lose a position next year.

The University of Tennessee will plead its case to the NCAA Committee on Infractions on Aug. 11, with a decision regarding possible sanctions against the Volunteers' football program expected within a month. Tennessee is accused of violating several NCAA recruiting rules and with operating an improper summer camp for football prospects. NCAA enforcement chief David Berst characterized the allegations as "major," meaning they could result in sanctions.

The NCAA accused the University of Tennessee football program of improper recruiting activities, lying to an investigator and running an improper summer camp. The violations, if proved, could carry stiff penalties, and university officials said they are working to answer the charges. The NCAA notified the university of its investigation in an April 8 letter to acting university president Joseph E. Johnson. The university has until June 10 to reply.

The University of Tennessee, hoping to avoid sanctions, told the NCAA that former assistant football coach Jack Sells--fired last Friday--broke recruiting rules at least six times and then lied to an NCAA investigator. David Berst, the NCAA's chief rules enforcer, said the violations were major. Sells said most were unintentional and that he is being made a scapegoat. Sells, 29, spent less than three years on coach Johnny Majors' staff.

On Sept. 28, a request was made by the Sizzler restaurant (chain) for a zoning variance on the lot at the rear and across the alley from their restaurant on Washington Boulevard at Stanford Avenue. This would allow them to remove the house and add a parking lot for 14 additional cars. Items brought up at that meeting that I believe contributed to the basis for denying the request were: 1. Sizzler already has more parking spaces than is required. 2. Sizzler does nothing to control the present parking area as to who (may park there)

An innovative stolen car tracking system that state legislators refused to approve for Los Angeles last year could be in place by the end of the year under a plan approved by city police commissioners. The Los Angeles Police Commission recommended Tuesday that the City Council agree to a proposed contract under which LoJack Corp. would lease patented, high-tech equipment to the city for five years at no charge and then transfer ownership to the city, officials said.

With its truly giant "Giant," professional direction and design, and a lively hero, the musical "Jack and the Giant" is an appealing effort by the amateur, all-female Nine O'Clock Players at the Walter Lantz Magic Auditorium. This group, a service of the Assistance League of Southern California, has been putting on fairy tale plays for children for 50 years; many of its actors are in the fiftysomething age range themselves.
