Woodland Hills teenagers Colin and Corinne Chow have been playing the violin since they were old enough to walk. Back then, their "violins" were rulers attached to Cracker Jack boxes with wooden pencils as bows--makeshift toys to practice fingerings and technique. Monday night, with better-sounding instruments, the teenagers played as part of a string quartet at a Century City reception for the president of the United States. What a difference a few thousand lessons makes.

Hoping to stymie the reelection of a major political foe, gun owners across the country are planning an extensive mail campaign against Democratic state Sen. David A. Roberti as he seeks a seat on unfamiliar political turf in the San Fernando Valley, a gun rights activist said Thursday. But Roberti's campaign manager charged Thursday that gun activists were trying to deceive voters by hiding the true source of flyers that will be mailed at the end of this month.

They campaigned in shopping malls, synagogues and along Ventura Boulevard. They button-holed voters at their homes and on the street. They sought the politician's favorite Halloween treat--votes--and remained watchful for last-minute dirty tricks. With Election Day nearing, candidates for public office busily crisscrossed the San Fernando Valley region Saturday, exhorting precinct-walkers, chatting up the undecided and making last-minute campaign preparations.

With an emotional power reminiscent of the 1970s furor over school busing, the movement to break up the Los Angeles Unified School District is muscling its way into the 1993 mayor's race. Not only is the controversy heightening racial tensions, it is threatening to overshadow issues such as the economy and crime over which the mayor has direct control.

There are a number of Democrats among the town's powerbrokers whom you might expect to support Democratic City Councilman Michael Woo out of ideological loyalty, even though the mayoral race is nonpartisan. These are people whose faces aren't familiar on the nightly television news and who like it that way. They are lawyers, investors, executives, financial experts, developers and others who work in the back rooms shaping city policy.

A large framed photo of the presidential candidate sits on a mantel, his pensive glare staring at the crowd of volunteers packed into a room in this Boyle Heights house. The message is simple: Cuauhtemoc Cardenas wants you. "He is very excited about this tour here in Los Angeles," Oscar Estrada, a deputy with Mexico's Democratic Revolution Party, or PRD, tells the group. The candidate asks for them by name, Estrada says in Spanish: "Where's Felipe? Where is Milecio?"

In a homecoming address at his high school alma mater, GOP vice presidential nominee Jack Kemp mixed stories of his football days as a member of Fairfax High's class of 1953 with a vision of racial harmony in the 21st century. "Racial, ethnic and religious reconciliation are the single most important goals in America here on the eve of the new millennium," Kemp told a packed auditorium of attentive students and teachers Tuesday morning.

Bob Dole set aside his morning to celebrate virtue Wednesday, but by nightfall he was headed straight toward the city of vice. First came an anti-drug salvo leveled against the fashion and entertainment industries at Chaminade College Preparatory High School in West Hills, where he unveiled a new, if somewhat derivative, anti-drug slogan and logo to the chants of a gymnasium filled with students: "Just Don't Do It."

Chaminade College Preparatory High School takes an uncommon--and uncompromising--approach to policing its campus: drug-sniffing dogs. That is part of the reason campaign organizers picked the private West Valley school as the backdrop for a major anti-drug and anti-crime message by Republican presidential candidate Bob Dole during a daylong visit to California today.

As campaign rallies go, this one had the look of a clunker. The President, Bill Clinton himself, had been the scheduled speaker. But he was stuck back in Washington, preoccupied with the Haiti business. So he sent his wife. But her plane was late. And it was very hot out on the jet-black Tarmac at Burbank Airport, the late-afternoon sun beating down on the 200 Democratic faithful who had gathered to cheer on gubernatorial candidate Kathleen Brown.

Dist. Atty. Gil Garcetti has imported a San Francisco political snooper to dig up dirt on his opponent. The snoop's name is Ace, Ace Smith, a perfect handle for a pioneer in the shady political game known as opposition research. When someone like Smith is through with you, your life has become an open book or, more likely, material for a damaging television commercial.
