Officials who work volleyball games involving more than 500 high schools in Southern California have voted to strike after rejecting a contract proposal by the Southern Section. The Southern Section proposed a modest raise for varsity officials but wanted to cut pay for junior varsity matches, according to Tom Fakehany of the Southern California Volleyball Officials Assn. City Section schools would not be affected by the strike because their officials have reached a separate agreement.

- In basically the backyard of austere 10 Downing Street, where British Prime Minister David Cameron officially resides in a stately executive manor, a raucous block party rocked his neighborhood Saturday night. Queen Elizabeth celebrates birthdays on the same grounds, but even if QEII forever became a Bond girl at Friday night's Olympic opening ceremony, I bet none of her bashes ever resembled the Olympic beach volleyball games here. Prince Harry's, maybe, but not the queen's.

Digger Graybill stops short of taking a shot at the integrity of his old college coach. But Graybill, who played volleyball at San Diego State and now coaches UC San Diego's men, talks like a man who feels he's been slighted, if not slapped in the face, by his former mentor, Jack Henn. Twice during UCSD's recently concluded season, Henn sent a junior varsity squad to face the 20th-ranked Tritons. And both times the Tritons, who finished 7-10, lost to the No. 3 Aztecs.

At least 75 civilians were killed and dozens were wounded Friday when a suicide bomber detonated an explosives-laden vehicle at an outdoor volleyball game in northwestern Pakistan, police said. The attack apparently was aimed at members of an anti-Taliban "peace committee" that has been challenging the influence of insurgents, officials and town elders said. The bombing took place as a crowd of more than 200 people watched a match between local teams about 20 miles south of the town of Lakki Marwat in North-West Frontier Province.

Every Friday night, two volleyball nets are hung across the gymnasium at Clark Community Center in La Crescenta and the faithful congregate for open-play volleyball. "It's been going on for nine, 10 years," said Dana Spautz of the Glendale Parks, Recreation and Community Services Division. "It's just a very popular sport right now." The games are open to anyone who wants to play and can get picked for a team. Selections are made on an informal, schoolyard basis.

Every Wednesday morning, a group of friends meets at the Sand and Sea Club on Santa Monica Beach for the latest installment of a volleyball game that has been going on for more than 50 years. The oldest participants started playing before the breakwater was built, back when the tide would nip at the edges of the private clubs lining the beach. Others started during the Depression, and played for apples or, on good days, quarters in the shadow of the Santa Monica Pier. The youngest date back to the boom years of the late '40s, when the ex-GIs moved here, eager for a taste of the good life.

Of course, it had to end this way. The UCLA and Stanford women's volleyball teams are the sport's heavyweights, capturing the attention of the volleyball community whenever they meet, as, inevitably, they do at some point each year in the NCAA playoffs. This season is no different, and the stakes could be no higher when UCLA (32-3) plays Stanford (31-1) in the championship game tonight at 5:30 p.m. PST in a highly anticipated match between the powerful Pacific 10 Conference's two best teams.

It's been some time now, but Faye Campbell, organizer of Ventura's California Beach Party '96, used to be a Funicello-esque, "Beach Blanket Bingo" stereotypical surfer gal. "It was the late '50s and early '60s. I had a '56 white convertible, lowered, with moon hub caps and dual pipes," said Campbell, special events coordinator for the city of Ventura. "I grew up in Bakersfield, but it was every weekend to Laguna Beach, and all the girls would pile into the convertible."

Pro beach volleyball player Dennie Shupryt-Knoop's warmup routine starts at 5:50 every morning. With the sun creeping over the mountains above her Topanga Canyon home, she pops in a videotape for her wide-awake toddler, then steals away to use the phone. With her daughter firmly engrossed in "Winnie the Pooh," she dials corporate marketing chiefs on the East Coast as they drink their morning coffee, pitching them on hiring her to endorse their products.

In our collective consciousness, the Venice-Santa Monica Boardwalk is a place of icons--an epicenter of California culture. Here are the mesomorphic in-line skaters. Here are the tattooed "gangstas." Here are the panhandlers, with lobster-red faces. And the man who juggles the chain saws for the slack-jawed tourists. Colliding in one crazy, funky melange by the sand, all who tread here will leave with a memory.

OK, she wants to be more than just a People Magazine's World's-50-Most-Beautiful-People face on the Bud Light 4-Woman Volleyball Tour. This is not a young woman playing professional volleyball for the paycheck, however. She has been a busy international model for five years and has graced every fashion magazine from Elle to Vogue.
