Its symptoms are many, but there's only one cure. Senioritis, as a disease, knows no discrimination. It may strike anyone at any time and in any number of ways. While it is next to impossible to treat, it can be cured--by graduation. Hot Topics wonders, "What is your definition of senioritis?" "I don't know, but I've had it since I was a freshman."

THE END OF SUMMER brings a sad little dread that tugs the heart downward. Truth is, though, summer as it exists in our nostalgic memories -- long days of swimming, playing and, best of all, accomplishing absolutely nothing -- has been withering, and gone, for years, like a worn-thin autumn leaf. Summer was, for a while, a child's time, conferring an inviolate right to laziness.

In the arena of human indolence, the male of the species has no equal. It's why he invented the couch, television, underwear and holidays, all of which combine to allow him to lie on his primary creation wearing only boxer shorts and watching other primates bat, kick, pass or lob balls of varying sizes for his delight and edification. What man considers both comfort and enjoyment can be achieved on any weekend day, but tradition has a special tug when it's a national holiday, an occurrence that he feels has been created especially for him to laze.

Successful treatment of amblyopia, or lazy eye, in children requires that a patch be worn over the good eye for all or part of the day, forcing the lazy eye to work. But many kids resist this. Now research from the National Eye Institute has found that eye drops work as well as a patch and are easier to use. The drops, containing the drug atropine, are placed in the good eye, dilating the pupil and temporarily causing blurry vision in that eye.

Lazy Dog's DJ set Friday at a packed Fais Do-Do ballroom (a space that should be used more often for electronic dance shows) was the type of performance that can be maddening to review. From a skills standpoint, the duo (which features Ben Watt of Everything But the Girl and Jay Hannan) was mediocre at best. Several times during the set, which found Watt and Hannan alternating behind the turntables, the pair had the opportunity to go for the kill, but failed to capitalize.

Lay out the beach towels, light up the barbecue. Lounging around the pool with friends may require only summertime basics--a swimsuit, a chaise longue, a couple of paper plates--but true Southern California style is back-yard entertaining with alfresco flair. The idea is casual elegance in everything from setting a table to dressing up for dinner at sunset.

The Scene Newport Harbor's Reuben E. Lee river boat-restaurant, where the Red Ribbon 100 women's advisory council to the Orange County chapter of the American Red Cross--and hundreds more--stepped aboard Tuesday for an evening of champagne and wine tasting. The moon wasn't quite as full as the showboat (filled to capacity with about 400 guests). Elbows got a full workout, bending frequently to lift those souvenir champagne glasses and politely prodding their way through the close-packed crowd.

Summertime. Moviegoin' is easy, or so the studios devoutly hope. We have very nearly the full complement of summer movies and once Snow White, Ritchie Valens ("La Bamba"), that dashing new James Bond ("The Living Daylights") and that revenge-bent shark (you need to ask?) arrive, we will have landed the big commercial films of the season, at least through July.

It was a banner day for California-breds Saturday at Santa Anita. Horses from the state won six of the nine races, including the two big prizes.

Longo, overtook 17-10 favorite Spain in the final yards to win the $300,000 Santa Margarita Invitational Handicap.
