Sam Schweitzer, 87, feels good about his life. Happily married and a proud father, he works hard, teaches, bowls and is active in community organizations. But one thing is missing--a student to follow in his footsteps. "For 17 years, I've been waiting for someone from the high school to come over and get free lessons, help me, and someday take over part of my business," he said. "Or I tell them, 'If you take it seriously, I'll teach you everything I know for $100.' But no one takes me up on it."

Most likely you've seen Sam O. Schweitzer's fancy scroll writing at an Orange County school, in some friend's house or maybe in President Reagan's office. No doubt, you didn't recognize his work. However, if you see Schweitzer, 84, he wouldn't mind talking about his years as a master calligrapher-illustrator working out of his Laguna Beach home studio, where he produces hundreds upon hundreds of fancy scrolls. After all, there aren't many master scribes around.

Hey Lisa, Sheryl, Swin and Spoon. Diana, Alana, Nicole and Lindsay got next. The WNBA begins its eighth season tonight with more than the usual refurbishing and replenishing brought about by drafts, trades and free-agent signings. League officials hope they are welcoming the next generation to the summer game. A generation that grew up on the WNBA, and already has created a buzz for themselves and their style. Diana Taurasi, drafted by Phoenix, won three national championships at Connecticut.
