"Star Wars" creator George Lucas is giving USC a blockbuster donation of $175 million -- the university's biggest single gift ever -- that largely will be used to build a new home for its prestigious film school, campus officials confirmed Tuesday. The gift from his Lucasfilm Foundation builds on Hollywood's historic support for the cinema school, where Lucas earned a bachelor's degree. Much of the donation is to pay for a 137,000-square-foot complex.

Newly installed Board of Supervisors Chairman Ralph Clark said Tuesday in his inaugural address that his colleagues should consider placing such issues as offshore oil drilling, new airport sites and a single, countywide fire department before Orange County voters this year. Beginning his fourth--and last--stint as chairman since first joining the board in 1970, Clark suggested that such controversial issues be placed on countywide ballots in advisory votes aimed at gauging public sentiment.

Wealthy technology guru Jim Clark has stopped payment on $60 million of a $150-million pledge to Stanford University for biomedical science, citing anger over President Bush's restrictions on stem cell research. The decision by Clark, founder of Silicon Graphics, Netscape, Healtheon and myCFO, is highly unusual in higher education philanthropy. In recent years, donors have pulled gifts out of anger with recipient universities. Some have canceled donations when their investments have gone sour.

By many measures, 1992 was a watershed year for executive compensation. Securities regulators cracked down on disclosure. Accounting regulators spelled out plans for new ways to count pay. And angry shareholders stormed management bastions demanding better performance for their money. Indeed, it seems that there was only one thing that remained virtually constant: Top executives of California companies earned as much as ever last year. And in some cases, they earned much, much more.
