Bradley died of leukemia at 65 on Nov. 9.

Nick Vander Tuig, UCLA's reliable No. 2 starter, teetered Saturday in the NCAA regional. Cal Poly just couldn't get him to topple. By the time Vander Tuig departed, he and UCLA were in control. The Bruins' 6-4 victory gave them an afternoon off in the NCAA regional at Jackie Robinson Stadium. Cal Poly (40-18) plays San Diego (33-23) Sunday at 2 p.m. The winner of that game plays UCLA at 6 p.m. The Bruins (41-17), and Vander Tuig, were able to exhale after they fell behind, 4-0, Saturday.

Mary Madrid's house still shakes every time a train roars by, rattling her nerves and reminding her of the tragedy that struck her San Bernardino neighborhood 15 years ago.

Nick Edenetti, the Johnny Carson for severe insomniacs, was smoking. So was his first guest, journeyman actor Ben Frank. The exhaust fumes from their cigarettes blanketed their ruddy faces like a dense fog. "So," said Edenetti, the smoke trailing from his lips as he turned to face Frank, "what's it like working with Charlie Bronson?" "Oh, he's beautiful," said Frank, blowing an equally impressive cloud into the air.

Pacific 10 football coaches constantly talk about parity, saying that the conference is relatively strong from top to bottom. Not quite, if early-season results are any indication. The league apparently has a doormat in Oregon State. The Beavers have already played the two weakest teams on their schedule, losing to Montana, 22-15, and to Kansas, 38-12. If Oregon State can't beat Nevada Las Vegas Saturday, it figures to be a long season for Coach Dave Kragthorpe's team in Corvallis.
