Facing a sea of Hawaiian shirts and leis, a seven-piece mariachi band set the tone early Wednesday morning for a festive memorial to surf legend Jack Haley. The memorial began in a parking lot close to the pier and ended at water's edge. Haley, who died March 25 after a three-year battle with cancer, had left instructions with family and friends about the manner in which he should be remembered. No black attire. No organ music. Instead, mariachi and casual, colorful Hawaiian wear.

Their success is all relative. Collectively, Tyler Trapani, Jack Haley and Alex Schrempf have played eight minutes this season for UCLA, scoring one basket, and some might say even that was heaven-sent. Stockpiling points was no trouble for their famous kin. John Wooden was an All-American guard at Purdue long before becoming UCLA's revered coach. The elder Jack Haley had a 10-year professional career after a memorable rise to prominence with the Bruins. Detlef Schrempf was a three-time NBA All-Star, a league leader in three-point shooting and gravity-defying hair.

The family home of Jack Haley, who played the Tin Man in "The Wizard of Oz," has come on the market at $3,599,000. Haley raised his two children in the Spanish-style house, which sits in the flats of Beverly Hills. The two-story home, built in 1926, has living, family and dining rooms, a kitchen with a breakfast area and pantry, a sun room, a den, an office, four bedrooms and four bathrooms in 4,889 square feet. The song-and-dance man bought the house in 1941 for $26,000. "He never had a mortgage," said grandson Barry Bregman, who recalled the home as the center of family and social gatherings.

Friends called him Mr. Excitement. Jack Haley, Seal Beach surfing icon and restaurateur, pulled off everything with grandeur and style. So it wasn't surprising that before Haley died Sunday after a battle with cancer, the 65-year-old had planned his own beach party memorial bash, with mariachi music and Hawaiian shirts. "He demanded there not be a tear at the party," his son, Tim, said Monday. "He wanted it to celebrate his life." The date, time and place for the party have yet to be decided.

Jack and Dennis, two American kids growing up in the heartland. . . . Jack Haley was a rich kid from Seal Beach. He didn't play team sports in high school because he didn't like them. Besides, he wasn't very good at them. Instead, he surfed in the summer and skied in the winter. After discovering basketball, he married a UCLA cheerleader and started a family. Dennis Rodman was a poor kid from Dallas.

It's getting expensive to be a Laker. A year ago, Magic Johnson gave up $100,000 in salary so the team could acquire Terry Teagle, although, as Johnson noted, he could afford it. His give-back amounted to less than 1% of his total income. And if giving at the office is a contest, the title goes to the newest Laker, Sedale Threatt. He took a $163,000 cut in pay, or 21%, to enable the Lakers to trade for him.

One of boxing's rarest collectibles, or so Gloria Haley would have you believe, sits in the cluttered, darkened living room of her Beverly Hills home. A septuagenarian, she cares little for the sweet science. "I can't stand it," Haley says of boxing. "It's barbaric." She is the daughter of the late actor Jack Haley, who was the Tin Man in "The Wizard of Oz." Her brother was the late Jack Haley Jr.

Now as you might know, after their honeymoon in Fontana, the Grocery Store Bagger and the daughter moved into our house so the happy/sappy couple could save money for the Bagger's weekend jaunts to the track. It's been a rough couple of months capped off by the daughter's announcement the other night that she'll know in 15 days whether she's pregnant. Right away I'm thinking immaculate conception, of course, because that's my little girl, and then I hear this belch from the other room.

Jack Haley Jr., a producer and director of films, many celebrating the Golden Age of Hollywood, died Saturday at UCLA-Santa Monica Hospital. He was 67. Kelly Brandt, Haley's longtime assistant, said Haley was admitted to the hospital Friday in a semi-comatose condition. Haley, who also produced some of the Academy Award shows, was probably best known for producing and directing "That's Entertainment," the 1974 homage to MGM musicals of the 1930s, '40s, and '50s.

Jack Haley, a surfer from Seal Beach who didn't play high school basketball, became a Laker Friday. The New Jersey Nets renounced their rights to him and he joined the Lakers, who had signed him to an offer sheet. "I'm ecstatic," Haley said. "This is a dream come true for Jack Haley. This is something I've wanted since I started playing basketball." Haley, the self-described "kid nobody wanted" in basketball, earned a surfing letter at Huntington Beach High.
