USC has reached its ambitious $1-billion fund-raising goal two years ahead of schedule and has upped the campaign to $1.5 billion in its dogged effort to strengthen the school's standing among the nation's top universities.

Loker to help a USC institute develop fuel cells and other energy sources that are friendlier to the environment.

When Michael D. Eisner and Frank G. Wells took over as top executives at troubled Walt Disney Co. in 1984, they took smaller base salaries in exchange for a shot at lucrative bonuses and stock options. If they turned the firm around, the bonuses and stock options would kick in and earn them far more than what they gave up in base salaries. Such confidence has paid off handsomely for the Disney duo. The $40.1 million and $32.1 million that Eisner and Wells earned in 1988--mostly in bonuses and stock options--made them by far the highest-paid managers last year in The Times' annual survey of executive compensation at California-based, publicly held companies.

In a survey by The Times of chief executives of large Southern California companies, 27 of the 28 who responded said they think that the United States has already entered one. Yet the executives are not all doom and gloom. Most said they expect the recession to be relatively mild and to last no more than a year.
