"Beethoven the Titan" it said on the program, which might lead one to expect music-making of the epic heaven-storming sort. However, what conductor Lois Johnson and the San Fernando Valley Symphony offered Saturday evening at Reseda High School Auditorium put a premium on lean, crisp sound in cautious, well-planned readings.

Bell-Jeff COACH: Hal Krug, 11th season LAST SEASON: 5-14-1; fifth in league at 5-9 PLAYERS TO WATCH: Seniors Mike Cesta and Rod Arancibia will be the only seasoned players on a young, inexperienced and rebuilding team. Cesta, one of six Bell-Jeff players to hit .300 or better last season, is the only returnee--four graduated in June and the other, Paul Izquierdo (.353), is academically ineligible. Cesta hit a team-high .406 last season and will be counted on for more this year.

At least three different forms of evidence link the "Valley Intruder" to killings in San Francisco and the Los Angeles area, it was learned Friday. These links are said to be ballistics tests, messages scrawled on walls and a "distinctive" piece of evidence the killer leaves behind in the homes of his victims.
