Los Angeles Southwest College has been placed on probation by the regional accrediting agency, an action local college officials call unwarranted. Mark Drummond, chancellor of the nine-college Los Angeles Community College District, said Friday that the move by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges "was an overreaction. We think this is a strong institution."

Orlando Woolridge, hoping to be the first Los Angeles Spark coach to survive an entire season, leads a vastly improved group of players to training camp today. Vastly improved, of course, is a WNBA redundancy. Every team is vastly improved, since the league's draft May 4 brought in 35 players from the defunct American Basketball League.

A recent story contained a quotation from a student at Cal State Northridge saying that the opportunity to attend a campus composed entirely of temporary structures was "unique." Unfortunately, not so. Here in L.A., Los Angeles Southwest College at Western and Imperial was nothing but bungalows for more than four years. After the 1987 earthquake, the permanent structure was shut down and the bungalows were re-enlisted. In my home town of Philadelphia, Temple University's football team plays ball at a stadium eight miles north of campus.
