The Huntington Beach Holiday Inn has been transformed into the House of Pancake Makeup, its first-floor ballroom teeming with young men in sports coats, wide ties and short pants who wander the halls, mouthing the words to the script in their hands, bracing for their moment in the strobe lights. Another name is called. Another body disappears into the makeshift television studio. Another career in broadcasting is about to take a step forward, or backward.

The National Education Goals Panel, established five years ago to assess the quality of education in America, now reports that incidents of violence at or near schools are on the decline.

"Booch has gone dry for a couple games," Cano said before the Pepperdine game. "She has to pick it up."

Anna Klein was wrong. . . . . She was going teach soccer, that universal sport. She knew the game herself from AYSO to UC Irvine, where she was a standout midfielder. Surely coaching would be simple. She gathered the Corona del Mar junior varsity players together for their first practice a year ago and began giving orders in soccer-ese. "They thought I was speaking Portuguese," Klein said.

It has not been a banner day for the chronicler of the American sneaker. His own Size 11 1/2 blue low-cut Royal Pro-Keds stagger on the asphalt of the Rose Bowl parking lot. "My neck's on fire," he murmurs. "My eyes are burning. It's very hard to concentrate on anything except my pain." Usually, Marcel Addison Bonner strides the cramped aisles of this swap meet with springy authority.
