The football teams from Cathedral and Salesian high schools met last Thursday night in a regular-season finale. Since a berth in the playoffs was on the line, a big crowd would normally have been expected. But when the teams lined up for the national anthem, the bleachers were empty. There were plenty of fans who wanted to be there but, for this game, fans were not allowed. The gates were locked and several police officers were on hand to make sure there would be no problems.

The carnival-like atmosphere at Harvard High's homecoming game was no distraction for Saracen running back Andy Bell, who kept his eyes on the field and the ball tucked to his side in leading Harvard to a 31-16 Sante Fe League victory Saturday afternoon over Salesian. Bell went over the 1,000-yard mark in rushing with 158 yards on 15 carries. He scored on runs of 13 and 45 yards in front of a overflow crowd.

The Salesian Boys & Girls Club, credited with being instrumental in keeping peace on the Eastside during the April-May riots, is facing staff cuts in part because money is being diverted for riot relief, club officials said. Funding reductions from the United Way--14.75% last year and 38.76% this year--have forced the club to figure out new ways to meet its weekly payroll.

Andy Connolly scored 15 points and teammates John Carolan and Steve Hurdle each added 10 as Chaminade cruised to a 71-52 victory over Salesian in a Santa Fe League game at Chaminade on Thursday night.

Chaminade (12-6) took a 20-3 lead in the first quarter by forcing six Salesian turnovers with a stifling full-court zone press.

Without playing even one league match, the Salesian High volleyball squad is already preparing to make a better showing in this season's playoffs. Last week, the Mustangs traveled to Las Vegas where they finished 2-5 in two days of competition. But the preseason record isn't what counts. "Our main concern is going higher (in the post season)," said Mustang Coach George Rodriguez, who started the volleyball program six years ago.

The expulsion of a radical slum priest from his ecclesiastic order has silenced Haiti's most influential voice for the rights of the nation's poor. In expelling Father Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the conservative Salesian Order accused the populist Roman Catholic cleric of fomenting class warfare, calling him a "protagonist of destabilization." His ouster was announced Dec. 15 in a statement from Rome.

Representatives from the Catholic Athletic Assn. approved new leagues on Thursday, and for football only, L.A. Salesian was put in a league with Loyola, Bishop Amat and Gardena Serra. Salesian will appeal the decision to the Southern Section. Salesian won the Northeast Division last season. That's considered Division XIII in strength. Salesian has been adding transfer students in recent years, alienating some of its member schools, and that probably helped influence other schools to vote in favor of adding Salesian to the more powerful league.
