MOVIE producers don't show up every day on Cesar Chavez Boulevard in Boyle Heights. So it's surprising how little fuss the locals make when actor-director Edward James Olmos and his production team arrive one recent morning to scout locations for the upcoming HBO film "Walkout," a dramatization of the seminal 1968 Chicano student protests at high schools on L.A.'s Eastside.

Marcus Hopkins has been arriving at Lincoln High School football practices a little late this semester. Hopkins, a senior, is taking a full schedule to prepare for college, and his sixth-period physics class lets out a few minutes after practice starts. Coach Vic Player doesn't seem to mind. The time missed hasn't seemed to bother Hopkins. Hopkins carried the ball 13 times Friday for 233 yards and 2 touchdowns in Lincoln's 62-16 victory over Patrick Henry.

Ron Loneski's plan wasn't supposed to unravel quite this early in the season. He had hoped his Lincoln High School boys' basketball team would be considered a contender, not just in the City Central League but in San Diego County.

Maybe it was the mystique of playing in the Sports Arena that caused the Lincoln High School girls' basketball team to miss all its shots in the first half of Friday's San Diego Section Division III championship game against Ramona. Maybe it was the cavernous depth behind the arena's glass backboards that altered Lincoln's aim so much that it missed all 25 of its first-half shots in the 41-23 loss.

Lincoln High School, the San Diego Section 2-A football champion, was led by a select group of players this season. Quarterback Keith Mitchell, wide receiver Patrick Rowe and running back Marcus Hopkins led the 11-1 team that defeated Oceanside, 41-7, last Saturday for the 2-A title. Charles Patterson played consistently as the Hornets' tight end and cornerback. He had only two touchdowns and three interceptions during the regular season, but he contributed in less noticeable ways.

Pregnant teen-agers in at least three local high schools will get a chance to learn more about becoming better mothers and delivering healthy babies.

Nurse Janet Byers began the program at Lincoln and Riley high schools Thursday morning and hopes to visit Garfield and Roosevelt high schools.
