More than 270 Santa Clara University dormitory rooms were discovered ransacked as students returned from the holidays, but campus officials said nothing of real value appeared to have been taken. Rooms in five dormitory buildings were apparently entered with a pass key. "It just doesn't make sense to us," university spokesman John McLain said. "There wasn't any vandalism. They didn't break furniture or kick in any walls. . . . No spray paint or anything like that."

Joey DeGrandis, a two-time New England Golden Gloves champion, headed west earlier this year and found the Ten Goose Boxing Club in Van Nuys. Saturday afternoon, he found something else: a fighter he could not beat. DeGrandis, in just his third pro fight, ran into John McLain of Las Vegas, a crisp and accurate puncher who was making his pro debut. And McLain made his first pro fight a good one, scoring a unanimous, four-round decision over DeGrandis at Bally's Casino Resort.

As a fledgling actress fresh from New York, small-time nightclub performer Liz Renay felt she was on her way in Hollywood after director Cecil B. De Mille spotted her in the Paramount commissary. "He said I was the most exciting face he had seen in 20 years," Renay said in a 1999 interview with the Asbury Park Press in New Jersey. "He was going to star me in a big extravaganza called 'Esther,' from the book of Esther in the Bible. Agents were clamoring to sign me.... This was my big hope.

The Houston Oilers have long enjoyed a bad-boy reputation, on and off the field. When Ladd Herzeg resigned this week as the team's general manager, it was probably just coincidence that only a few weeks before, he had slapped a Houston Chronicle columnist to culminate an embarrassing caviar-dipping, champagne-drinking spree at a Houston restaurant. But it was Coach Jerry Glanville who may have set the tone.

Completing its first season at the Orange County Performing Arts Center on Saturday, Opera Pacific finally got around to a traditional grand opera: "La Boheme." It turned out to be very traditional, and very grand indeed. The audience loved it. The audience loved it so much, in fact, that premature applause obliterated Puccini's meticulously calculated cadences at the end of each big aria and at the end of each act.

George Balanchine's 18-minute jazz ballet "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue" is doubly popular this season. Performed alternately by Natalia Makarova and Rebecca Wright, it continues to be the dance highlight of the 1936 Rodgers and Hart musical "On Your Toes" (currently at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion). Danced by Suzanne Farrell, it has also recently appeared on New York City Ballet mixed bills back East for the first time in 14 years.

There are more ways than one to screw up "The Phantom of the Opera." One way is to turn the Phantom into Jack the Ripper. That's the approach of the latest film version, whose appeal would seem to be limited to surgery fans. Another way is to spoof the story. That's the approach of Ken Hill's "Phantom" at the Wiltern Theatre--not to be confused with Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Phantom" at the Ahmanson, which is said to have been inspired by Hill's version.
