The family of a Thousand Oaks man, missing for the last week, has joined local law enforcement officials in asking for the public's help in locating the father of a 9-week-old daughter. Jeff Scott Howard, 40, was last seen by his wife, Thuc, early Dec. 21 in their condominium in the 1800 block of Avenida de Las Flores. The couple were awakened by their daughter, Jasmine, for a feeding, and Howard complained of a severe headache.

A Glendale Superior Court judge has dismissed a wrongful death lawsuit filed against Glendale by the mother of a 28-year-old Pasadena computer operator, Van Kenneth Leary Jr., who died in police custody six years ago. In dismissing the suit, Judge Joseph R. Kalin cited a 1963 state government code that shields public agencies from liability for the injury or death of prisoners.

A new commissioner will be named. The fate of foreign exchange students playing varsity sports will be decided. The referees are angry. Coaches are sure to be. Welcome to big-game week in the Southern Section. Thursday's council meeting in Norwalk will bring decisions and action--and maybe some surprises--on at least four significant issues, all of which figure to have long-range importance. In a nutshell: --The commissioner.

Football coaches at the University of Washington figured they landed a real sleeper when they signed Dana Hall of Pomona Ganesha, a 6-foot 3-inch safety who didn't get a lot of attention outside his area. A lot of people still may not know Hall, who as a football player didn't even make an all-conference team. But he has become impossible to overlook in track.

Brigid Freyne of Riverside Poly was on the outside looking in, a self-acknowledged unknown in girls' cross-country circles. A junior, she won at Mt. San Antonio College in October, but, most figured, that was only because Melissa Sutton of Newbury Park chose not to run. When the two met a month later, Sutton beat Freyne by 12 seconds for the Southern Section 4-A title. Another meeting in early December brought similar results.

Down the stretch they come . . . A brief update of the high school football recruiting scene a day before national letters of intent can be signed: Quarterback Jamelle Holieway, the City 4-A Player of the Year from Los Angeles Banning, will sign with Oklahoma. One of Orange County's biggest prospects, 6-foot 7, 275-pound Mike Beech of Newport Harbor, canceled a recent trip to SMU and then chose UCLA over USC.

Two versions of the Tournament of Champions, plenty of action: At Cal Poly Pomona, the 14th edition of the area's most prestigious boys' basketball tournament had a fittingly fine finish Saturday night. Santa Monica fell behind Santa Ana Mater Dei, 13-4, at the start of the championship game before closing the gap by halftime and then matching the Southern Section 5-A champions and two-time defending TOC winners basket for basket in the second half.

High school sports are coming to national television. ESPN will begin showing "Scholastic Sports America," a weekly, 30-minute news magazine-style program devoted to high school sports, Sept. 6 at 3:30 p.m. It will continue in that time slot throughout the school year. "There are some terrific stories in most every town, and the local paper is the only place where people can hear about it," said Dennis Deninger, the show's producer. "We want to take the stories from all over to a national level."

Having just broken two world records at the Phillips 66/U.S. Swimming Indoor National Championships last week in Orlando, Fla., Janet Evans, holder of three world bests, turns her attention to competing in . . . High school meets? Actually, it's not as strange as it appears. At least not in Southern California, where, according to Tom Milich, Evans' coach at El Dorado High of Placentia, "the competition she will face at the CIF finals is almost comparable to what she'll face at nationals."

As the veteran members of Bishop Amat High School's basketball team walked off the court last Friday night, they talked about how good it felt to finally have beaten Mater Dei of Santa Ana, of how they had waited four years to beat the Monarchs, the preeminent Southern Section team of the 1980s. Alex Acosta, Bishop Amat's second-year coach, knew the feeling. He was a senior guard on the last previous team at the La Puente school to beat Mater Dei. That was in 1978.

Quick-change artist: Randy Marquez of Hacienda Heights Los Altos always played center in football, until he quarterbacked the junior varsity to a 9-1 record last season, and his versatility became obvious. So, playing with the varsity this season, he has done both for a team that is 7-1 and among the best in the Eastern Conference. As the starting center, he has big shoulder pads and wears uniform No. 58. As the backup quarterback to David Olson, Marquez wears smaller pads and No. 12.

Ian Alsen of Granada Hills High School wanted a good run Saturday at the Mt. San Antonio College Invitational. In a way, he needed one. He knew he wouldn't have another chance to prove his ability, which is why his fourth-place finish at the nation's largest prep cross-country meet was all the more frustrating. The big time came and went. For most others it will be back, with the first state meet Nov. 28 in Fresno. But for Alsen, who would have been a good bet for a top-10 finish, and the L.A.

The end of his true playing life--but more important, the end of the constant travel and practice--occurred for Keith Fergus in Dallas in May. Fergus, a million-dollar winner on the PGA Tour and 1983 champion of the Bob Hope Desert Classic, shot 78-66 and became one of the happiest men to miss a cut. "I'll always remember that 66," he said the other day. "That was a good one to quit on." Fergus had been saying all along that he would spend 10 or 11 years on the tour, then leave the grind behind.
