' Mar VistaGrace Kamenides Complaints! nave come ifi about the way students, at Mar Vista "hog-up" parking spaces. Some drivers park using up to three spaces at a time. This is very unpleasant for the student who barely makes it to school on time, and is late to class because he had to park so far away. There wouldn't be this problem if each student took only , one parking space.

But a career day sponsored by the Imperial Beach Rotary Club and Imperial Beach Boys Club helped high school students learn the day-to-day realities of the occupations they were considering.

IT'S KIND of scary back here," ' said ' Don Anderson, a Mar Vista sophomore who was riding in the back of an Imperial Beach police car, gripping the divider that separated him from his host, officer Mark Jones. , "I'm a big guy, and it's hard to have any mobility in here," Don said. "It's mentally confining too," Jones replied as he rounded the corner at a busy intersection. "You automatically feel guilty., "I think it's good to get out wntsee what it's really like," Jones con- ' think It's good to get out and see what it's really like to find out that we don't spend the day shooting three people and getting Involved In high-speed chases.' Imperial Beach police officer Mark Jones tinued. "To find out that we don't spend the day shooting three people-and getting involved in high-speed -"chases. That only happenswhen yom turn to Starsky and Hutch or Adam-12." dicating he wanted Anderson to watch him write the ticket As he filled out the citation form, he explained that the radar control is set at 48, mph. "Anything going faster than that will lock in (make the machine buzz). "Each officer is allowed to make up his own mind, but usually we set it 11 to 14 miles over the-; speed limit," he said, noting that part of the allowance is for possible radar inaccuracy. AS THE Y cruised down Palm Ave. in Imperial Beach, Anderson told Jones he was considering an occupation in law enforcement and had once visited his uncle, then a highway patrolman, at his station. Jones' response was cut short by a sharp buzz of the radar equipment attached to the dashboard. " (That truck was) going 49 miles an hour in a 35mile. (per hour) zone," Jones said, putting the tail on a white pickup which had just pulled out from the curb. He glanced at the digital radar scanner showing these two numbers on the screen. Turning on to 1st St., Jones - stopped behind the -truck- and jumped out. - He returned several minutes later with the driver's license clipped to his notebook "We usually write the ticket by the car in case the person pulls a weapon," Jones said. "But I think this guyVok," he said, in- JONES RETURNED to the car and filled out several more forms. "You sure have to do a lot of paperwork," Anderson said, eliciting a smile from Jones. The dispatcher came on and alerted Jones to an apartment, where a young child reportedly was left alone As he headed to the scene, Jones recalled the most- unusual call he ever answered. , ... "Less than a week ago," Jones said, "I was called on a 415, or a family disturbance. It turned out to be a young man who swore his mother was putting voodoo hexes on him ... . ' ''-"" "He was going nuts. He said he was going to have to exorcise himself. All I c6uld say was, 'That's good' and calm him. He needed some mental help." Jones said police officers often have to intervene during family crises, although they receive a minimum of training in that area. "We're expected to be peacemakers," he said. "Yeah," Anderson agreed happily. "Something like supermen." SOME OTHER students spent the day with Allan Roedel at his color processing iab.

Speaking at a career day luncheon for high school students, and their Rotary Club " member sponsors, Barbara Strahan, administrative , "assistant "toTAssemblyman Wadie Deddeh, had words of wisdom on. career decisions. "Work hard, no matter what you do," she said.: "It's the best investment you can make. "STUDY HARD," she added. , "Learn your information iriv telligently and effectively." Strahan also stressed the importance of having initiative. "Ruts often deepen into graves," she said. "I worked 15 years for an accounting firm (before her present job) and I almost didn't have the initiative to get out and look for something else." She. said it is important for .a person to love his work. "Find pleasure in the mastery of your craft. . , ' ' "Be exact," she cautioned. "Slipshod methods bring slipshod results. "Have the spirit of conquest," she urged the group of 30 high school students. "Battle and overcome your difficulties. "Cultivate your personality," she said, adding that personality is to a man what fragrance is to a flower. Strahan talked of the importance of helping and sharing, with others. Noting the large number of female students in the room, she said she didn't believe that mjen 'have held women back in the past. "Women have held women back," she said. She urged career women not to develop a "goddess complex" and help other women up the path pnee they have made it. 5 "In all things do your best," she concluded. "If you do your best it's everything; less thaq the best is nothing." TmDassivelv at first, but wheiTHiir made the incision and inserted a tube in the trachea, she looked away and winced.

"One time we had a kid in here i about the height of this table when I -was operating. I was talking, and then I looked over there and he had just fainted and was flat on his back.

Would she seriously- consider becoming a veterinarian? - "I don't know," she said, looking' away. "You have to be very dedicated ; it's hard work and a lot of responsibility. It's a lot more than just loving animals."
