John Turner, who led a dramatic but unsuccessful fight against Canada's free trade agreement with the United States, announced Wednesday that he is stepping down as leader of the opposition Liberal Party. The Liberals lost twice to Prime Minister Brian Mulroney's Progressive Conservative Party since Turner took over the leadership in 1984. The most recent defeat was in November, 1988. "It is my intention to resign as leader of the Liberal Party of Canada at an appropriate time, after the national executive has chosen a date for a leadership convention," Turner said in a letter released at an Ottawa news conference.

 One of the most interesting stories to follow this fall is the transition from college coaching to high school coaching going on at Los Angeles Loyola, where former USC and Nebraska assistant Marvin Sanders has taken over as head coach. "We're growing as a team. I'm learning more every day. We're going to be counting on a lot of young guys for big roles," Sanders said. What's clear is that Sanders wants his team to be physical, and running the ball will be a major focus. The strength of the Cubs is up front, with seniors John Turner (6-5, 265 pounds)

We've come back from a 10-day visit to England and Scotland. To see as much of what we wanted to, without driving ourselves, we decided to use the services of Garden of England Tours. John Turner was mentioned in Jerry Hulse's Travel Tips several years ago (and again April 12). John drove us on three days of personally devised tours that were the highlight of our vacation. We second the original recommendation. LEONARD and RUTH KING Malibu

The men come from a family of nine brothers that have had a history of trouble with the law. Three are dead. Of the remaining six, Vernon is awaiting trial for murder, and Andrew, Larry and Noah are in jail for other crimes. The remaining brother, Moses, was taken into custody for questioning last week and released.

The kid was smooth enough on the basketball court, and tall enough at 6 feet 8, to fancy himself another Magic Johnson or Scottie Pippen. "Pushing the ball up the floor," he said. "Getting creative." But those dreams pretty much died the day Jarvis Turner left South Bakersfield for the USC campus. The Trojans had no big men so Coach Henry Bibby needed Turner to play inside, where the grinding work of defense and rebounding gets done. He needed the freshman to put the team ahead of his dreams.

All too often exhibitions of folk, or "outsider," art are big on whimsy but deficient in the skewed and startling outlooks that make this untutored, eccentric work so compelling. But "Selections From the Collection of John Turner"--at Chapman University's Guggenheim Gallery, with spillover in display cases at the Argyros Forum--is the ideal "outsider" art and curio show: vast, uncensored and hugely eclectic. There is imagery on paper plates, screen windows and a scrap of carpet.

Cpl. John Turner has seen the holes torn in people's lives by a fatal car crash. Like so many other traffic cops in Ventura County, he has interviewed stunned witnesses, dazed survivors and the shattered relatives of the dead. And, despite 19 years as an officer, Turner is still amazed at how easily society accepts this random, brutal brand of death. He also is alarmed by what he sees as a rise in aggressive, risky driving and a corresponding jump in the accident rate.

The Cowboys had Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin and Jay Novacek, but Coach Jimmy Johnson still felt something was missing. Johnson has turned the football version of worst-to-first in Dallas by trusting his intuition and he went with his gut feeling, hiring Norv Turner to fine tune his offense. The former Ram receivers coach took over as Cowboy offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach after the 1990 season.
