Re "Supreme Court Debates Traffic Violation Arrests," Dec. 5: Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy's attitude toward the cop who handcuffed and jailed a woman because she and her kids weren't seat-belted was, "It is not a constitutional violation for a police officer to be a jerk." How would he have felt if it was his daughter or granddaughter who experienced this trauma? If a policeman can be excused from such disgusting behavior by just admitting to being a jerk, then we'll soon have a police state.

Who needs Quincy Wright? The El Camino Real High football team didn't--at least, for one game. With Wright, one of the region's top running backs, sidelined with a bruised knee, the Conquistadores turned to Jared Maiden, who made the most of the opportunity. Maiden rushed for 214 yards and a touchdown in 28 carries and the Conquistadores held on for a 22-14 Northwest Valley Conference victory Friday at El Camino Real.

Amid all the dissection of John F. Kennedy's legacy this week, one achievement has gone largely unnoticed: his role in kick-starting the modern women's movement. Admittedly, JFK's record on women (particularly in his personal life) was mixed, and his Cabinet and policy staff were overwhelmingly male. Nonetheless, in December 1961, Kennedy acted decisively in the interest of women, establishing a national Commission on the Status of Women and appointing Eleanor Roosevelt as its chair.

Massachusetts Sen. Edward M. Kennedy developed no complications a day after his risky surgery to treat a malignant brain tumor, his office said in a statement. Kennedy spent the day walking hospital hallways, visiting with his family and "keeping up with the news of the day," his office said. The 76-year-old Democrat is expected to stay at the hospital in Durham for about a week. His doctors have described the surgery as a success.

When the players from Buena High showed up for their baseball game Wednesday night against Kennedy wearing sport coats, ties and penny loafers, the attempt at sartorial splendor drew a few chuckles from the more casually attired Kennedy players. Buena Coach Stan Hedegard's all-white, Miami Vice outfit drew the most attention. "Remember, it's better to look good than to feel good," cracked one Kennedy player, clad in a T-shirt, team cap, spikes and his uniform pants.

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) said that he is convinced he can win his party's presidential nomination in 1988. Kennedy, who lost the 1980 nomination to President Jimmy Carter, told the Boston Globe he won't make a final decision until after 1986 elections. The paper said, however, that he has raised about $1 million for the campaign.

It was only fitting that a game that was marred by turnovers should, well, turn on a bungle that went right. Trailing by a point, Banning High returned the second-half kickoff for a touchdown and rolled to a 19-7 victory over Kennedy in a nonleague opener Friday night at Kennedy. Kennedy held a 7-6 lead entering the second half, despite fumbling, bumbling and stumbling over itself in the first 24 minutes. Banning matched the Golden Cougars, boot for boot.
