I have just read the article in the Los Angeles Times ("SDSU's Filling of Psychology Post Is Faulted," Feb. 3,1991) concerning the sham of selecting yet another white professor to add to the existing 51 white professors in the psychology department at San Diego State University. In 1991, with young Americans of all colors fighting a war, it is time for this type of bigotry to stop. A nationally known black psychologist, Dr. Robert Guthrie, is a resident of this city (and literally right under their noses)

Villa Park's Katey Becker, twice a Times all-county selection for girls' tennis, has orally committed to San Diego State. Becker, who teamed with Faye DeVera last year to win the Southern Section individual doubles title, also took trips to Missouri and Washington. She picked San Diego State because of the climate and the coach, Peter Mattera. "He was working the girls really hard, but he seemed to make it a lot of fun," Becker said. "He really impressed me.

The question was compelling because Cal State Northridge was playing its most important game so far this season. Which Robert Crabtree would take the mound Sunday against San Diego State? The one who raced to a nation-best 11-1 record by the end of March? Or the one who had lost four decisions in a row?

Terry Esquivel pitched a complete-game four-hitter Tuesday to lead United States International University to a 5-0 victory over San Diego State in the first game of a nonconference women's softball doubleheader at San Diego State. The second game was tied, 1-1, after 10 innings when it was called because of darkness.

Much to the relief of Earnest Riggins, San Diego State women's basketball coach, his leading recruit, Jessica Haynes, was admitted to the university Thursday. "We were waiting on that final transcript," Riggins said Friday. Haynes, a 6-footer from Omaha Central High in Omaha, Neb., was a Parade Magazine High School selection. She averaged 24.7 points and 12.3 rebounds for her undefeated state championship team.

Onoe Kuroemon II, a master of Japanese Kabuki theater, will teach basic Kabuki movements and demonstrate makeup techniques at San Diego State University's Aztec Center today from 1 to 3 p.m. Five of Kuroemon's students will perform. In 1940, the Kabuki artist was given the rank of nadai, meaning leading Kabuki actor. He has studied both Western and traditional Japanese drama and has been named an "Intangible Cultural Asset" by the Japanese government.

John Jimmerson, a freshman who played basketball at Marquette, has expressed an interest in transferring to San Diego State. Jimmerson quit Marquette's team earlier this month, and he would be eligible to play next December at SDSU if he transferred before next semester. "He's a 6-6 kid, and we don't have those kind of kids in our program," Coach Smokey Gaines said. Jimmerson was a teammate of Aztec center Kevin Brown last year at Ottawa Hills High School in Grand Rapids, Mich.

San Diego State had its best local football recruiting campaign of the decade last year, signing five San Diego County high school players. It was expected, however, because Coach Denny Stolz emphasized recruiting local players. Doug Scovil, who coached the Aztecs from 1980 to 1985, preferred out-of-town players. Last year's number of local recruits is expected to be more than doubled when players begin signing letters of intent Wednesday.

For Keven Kempton, Sunday was a spirited new beginning. For his Cal State Northridge teammates, it probably marked the end of the road. Kempton, a Matador pitcher, proposed to his stunned girlfriend at home plate after the crucial series finale with San Diego State. It was a moving, well-orchestrated event that included all of Kempton's teammates and nearly caused Kempton's new fiance, Alison Anding, to swoon with emotion.

When it comes to football, San Diego State is no Michigan or Notre Dame or Alabama or Miami. In fact, it was reminded of that last November . . . by Miami, 63-17. However, as Week 1 of the 1993 season approaches, the Aztecs are being depicted as monsters beyond the dimensions of Michael Crichton's imagination. It's as if the Cal State Northridge Matadors are visiting Jurassic Park rather than San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium on Saturday night.

Five days after Heisman Trophy contender Marshall Faulk and his San Diego State teammates began drills, their opening day opponent, Cal State Northridge, will start its own preparations. The Matadors, who will make their Division I-AA debut Sept. 4 against the Aztecs at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium, could not afford the dorm fees to open fall camp before 9 a.m. today. As it is, housing is available to only 50 of the 84 players and walk-on freshmen cannot join the team until school starts Aug.

The softball team at San Diego State, which earlier this season fell victim to five home runs at Cal State Northridge in a doubleheader, figured how to keep the ball in its own yard during a Saturday rematch: Don't build a fence around the outfield. Without anything to aim for--at least in left field--the Matadors were slow waking up but eventually arose for another sweep, 4-1 in the first game, which went nine innings, and 3-0 in the second.

Cal State Northridge shortstop Andy Hodgins continued to distance himself from a season-opening slump with a two hits Friday night, including a two-run double, in the Matadors' 8-1 Western Athletic Conference victory over San Diego State. In the past six games, Hodgins, a senior from Simi Valley High, has raised his batting average from .185 to .265.

Kris Morton, a middle blocker for the No. 5-ranked San Diego State women's volleyball team, has been named to the 12-player Collegiate Volleyball Coaches Assn. All-American first team, it was announced Friday in Stockton. Morton, a 6-foot 4-inch sophomore from Springfield, Ore., led the Aztecs in blocks-per-game average at 4.92 and set a school single-season record with 219 blocks. Her 559 kills is the second highest by an Aztec during a season.

By the end of what was a sad and lonely first year of college basketball, everybody had an opinion about San Diego State's Marcus Banks. An outcast. Odd man out. Immature. A maladjusted freshman. The runt of the litter. If you can call a 6-foot-9, 290-pound 18-year-old a runt. "It was sad and pathetic," Aztec assistant coach Jim Harrick Jr. said of Banks' freshman year. "I wouldn't say he was alienated from the team," teammate Courtie Miller said. "But he was very young and immature."

UC San Diego and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies on Monday established a cooperative graduate teaching and research program that will put Salk scientists in the classroom and offer graduate students new laboratory research opportunities. The program boosts UCSD to a level where it will become "an extremely attractive magnet for national attention, for grants and graduate students," said Ted Case, chairman of the biology department.
