Community Service: The Fullerton Marriott has started providing food for a local Meals on Wheels program to feed the elderly. The hotel prepares one hot and one cold meal five days a week for about 25 people. The food is delivered to shut-ins by Meals on Wheels volunteers. The seniors are charged $5 a day for the service, or it is subsidized if they cannot afford to pay that much. The hotel receives the money as reimbursement for its food costs.

Just in time for the fall semester, Marriott is going to school. On Oct. 15, the hotel chain plans to open the Fullerton Marriott--the West's only hotel on a state university's grounds. With the move, Cal State Fullerton joins a handful of universities across the country that have allowed hotels to open on campus. But Bethesda, Md.-based Marriott Corp. apparently is the first major hotel chain to own an on-campus hotel. The project, however, was long in the making.

The diagnosis was soccer fever, judging by the peculiar symptoms scattered around Orange County Wednesday. Frantic people stood on bar tops. They sang, chanted and shouted. They threw napkins and bread sticks and romped around restaurants waving flags of many colors. When it was over, after Italy had defeated Bulgaria and Brazil had beaten Sweden, the stage was set for Sunday's World Cup final at Pasadena's Rose Bowl--and another bout with the dizzying delirium.

The United States, long a soccer lightweight, scored an improbable upset in its second game in the World Cup on Wednesday, beating highly regarded Colombia, 2-1, in front of a screaming, flag-waving crowd of 93,194 at the Rose Bowl.
