Fifty football seasons after he was the most valuable player in the Rose Bowl game, Jim Hardy, at 71, decided to go into coaching. "I had to think it over first," a winking Hardy explained recently. The former USC and seven-year NFL quarterback became a volunteer quarterback coach last summer at the new La Quinta High, about a mile from his desert home. Hardy led USC to consecutive victories in the 1944 and 1945 Rose Bowls.

The "action"--as student body president Jim Hardy now calls the bludgeoning death of Steven Newberry--began to unfold with a casual conversation among seven classmates one September afternoon. Jim and his best friends, Pete Roland and Ron Clements, were there, and the talk, as usual, was about killing. But this time, it wasn't just the twisted fantasies of tough teen-agers fixated on drugs, acid rock and violence. This time, it would be self-fulfilling prophesy.

They are something to watch, these long balls launched into the blue sky, chasing history as they soar, each one carrying with it the potential of sporting immortality. After awhile, you just sit there in numb amazement, working up a grudging admiration for an act as brazen, as in-your-face defiant as this. He is simply relentless, you say to yourself. He refuses to quit--he barely even pauses.

From 1973 to 1986, Jim Hardy was general manager of the Los Angeles Coliseum. He talked recently of the current plight of the 71-year-old facility, still undergoing repairs from last January's earthquake. Recently, one estimate pegged the repair bill at $92.7 million and climbing. "It's sad to me, what's happening to the Coliseum," he said. "It's a classic case of throwing good money after bad.

The moon, just out, hung over the Ozarks like a pale opal. Soon families would be saying grace over Sunday dinner; children would be clamoring to turn on the Christmas lights. It was time to go home.

Sharing some unspoken secret, the boys exchanged furtive glances in the fading light. They were growing edgy.
