A national trade school association has revoked the accreditation of an Encino-based chain of schools, which also is the subject of a criminal investigation by the state of California. The action of the Washington-based Career College Assn. could halt millions of dollars in government-backed loans to students of Unified Schools of America, which has six campuses in the Los Angeles area, association spokesman Brian Thompson said Wednesday.

An automotive trade school that opened in Lawndale in October without City Council approval has asked a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to order the city to issue it a business license. The city has refused a business license to Unified Schools of America, saying it is in violation of the zoning code, which prohibits schools on Hawthorne, Redondo Beach and Artesia boulevards. A hearing is scheduled for Feb. 2, Assistant City Atty. Robert Owen said.

The city of Lawndale has issued two misdemeanor citations to an automotive trade school that last week defied a City Council decision by operating without a business license. Unified Schools of America on Monday began holding classes at its facilities on the 15000 block of Hawthorne Boulevard--three weeks after the City Council unanimously voted to deny the school a business license.

Former Lawndale Planning Commissioner Gary McDonald, a longtime city activist who last month publicly lambasted a local business for having no building permits, has operated his development consulting business for almost six months without a business license. McDonald's license expired June 30, according to city officials, and he faces administrative fines and a possible misdemeanor charge.

Every evening, William P. Morris arrives at the Bell Homeless Shelter--and dives into his thick auto mechanics textbook and class notes. He expects to graduate from auto mechanics school soon and hopes to find a job that will pay for permanent housing. "I'm studying as hard as I can," Morris, 27, said recently as he waited for a Salvation Army van to take him from the shelter to classes in Compton. "I'm an artist, but an artist has to give up a lot. You don't make much money doing that."
