Two leading contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination criss-crossed Southern California on Friday, revealing as much about their strategies by their audience as their words. Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton, a favorite of Democratic moderates, called on the party to assemble "a new coalition for change" and declared himself "a different kind of Democrat" during campaign events that included an extraordinary session with Orange County Republicans and a fund-raiser with Hollywood liberals.

A 5-year-old boy was reportedly sexually assaulted by a 6-year-old male classmate at a Los Angeles-area school recently. On another campus, a 6-year-old girl was allegedly sexually abused by a 10-year-old classmate after he grabbed her hair and pulled her into a school bathroom. At a conference Wednesday on the Westside, these and other cases were described as part of a troubling trend of sexually aggressive behavior among students.

Support for a plan to create a national "police corps" that would pay for the college education of 25,000 new officers each year was expressed by an ideologically disparate group of lawmakers at a press conference Wednesday. "This is certainly not an ideological issue, this is a survival issue," said Rep. Robert K. Dornan, a conservative Republican from Garden Grove, who is a co-sponsor of police corps legislation introduced in the House last month.

When Carmen Elliot was assaulted by her preacher husband, she says, her pastor and family told her to pray harder, endure, make things work out. So, when Elliott finally left him, she struggled with the guilt of not following through on her marriage vows, not being there for better or for worse. Eleven ministers heard her story this week during the Westminster Police Department's first domestic violence training seminar for clergy.

In an effort to curb violence near school campuses, the Santa Ana Unified School District has agreed to allow its two daytime police officers to carry guns when they patrol the neighborhoods surrounding the district's 41 schools. The decision to arm the daytime officers is a "safeguard" to protect children from rising gang violence, said school board member James Richards, who voted with two other board members to arm the officers with .38-caliber handguns.

In response to a series of off-campus incidents, ranging from reports of strangers lurking outside elementary schools to a gang shooting that pinned a group of Balboa Middle School students in the cross-fire, a renewed spirit of vigilance has taken hold.

A federally funded office began six years ago to help schools nationwide deal with student violence by using old-fashioned discipline. Today, the National School Safety Center in Encino draws praise from police agencies and many school districts that have turned to it for advice. "You can pick up a phone from anywhere and ask, 'Are there any school districts using dogs to sniff out drugs?' or 'Is there any school policy that is effective at reducing bullying?' " said Wesley Mitchell, chief of police for the Los Angeles Unified School District.
