at Kansas State 38, Iowa State 30: Josh Freeman threw four touchdown passes and the Wildcats (5-7, 2-6) sent Ron Prince out a winner, beating the Cyclones (2-10, 0-8) at Manhattan three weeks after the school fired its embattled coach. Prince, hired three seasons ago without any previous head coaching experience, leaves with a record of 17-20. The victory enabled the Wildcats to squeeze past Iowa State and escape last place in the Big 12 North.

Not every program that was struggling in 2008 is running out of Tucson with its fan base on fire. You think things were bad at UCLA when Rick Neuheisel took over? While the Bruins were tinkering with a 4-8 team, and trying to contextualize a 59-0 defeat at Brigham Young, Washington was spiraling toward the 0-12 abyss in Tyrone Willingham's last season. The Huskies opened the year with a 44-10 loss at Oregon and closed with a 48-7 defeat at California. In between, Washington lost, 56-0, to USC; 55-14, to Oklahoma and star quarterback Jake Locker to injury.

Gov. Gray Davis is being asked to reverse his position on Prop. 187 and break his pledge to the voters of California. In its March 26 editorial, "It's Time to Let Prop. 187 Die," The Times asked Davis to commit a dangerous breach of precedent by backing out of the people's defense for Prop. 187, a law duly passed by the electorate. Davis promised voters that he would not interfere with their decision on the initiative, which was carried by a landslide margin in 1994. He said that the matter should be resolved in the courts.

There will be no Son of Proposition 187 on the California ballot this fall. The so-called "Save Our State-2" initiative--crafted as a follow-up to Proposition 187--has failed to qualify for the November ballot, the California secretary of state's office confirmed Wednesday. Ron Prince, the Orange County activist who authored the proposal, did not submit any of the more than 433,000 signatures needed before last week's deadline, said Alfie Charles, a spokesman for Secretary of State Bill Jones.

The Perils of Prince: As the relatively unknown co-chairman for Proposition 187, the immigration initiative, Tustin accountant Ron S. Prince claimed in an interview in early August that he lent the campaign $20,000 because he believed in the cause. Now, caught in a legal fight with his former attorney who is seeking payment for a $9,600 legal bill, Prince is claiming he didn't make the loan.

The image, if true, is a jarring one: Women about to give birth wait at the Mexican border. As the moment nears, they head north to the nearest United States pay phone. With one quick call to 911, the childbirth is funded by U.S. taxpayers and the newborn receives the ultimate birthday gift--U.S. citizenship. That's the scenario described by Ron Prince, the leader of California's Proposition 187 campaign and prime backer of what is being called Save Our State II--an effort to amend the U.S.

Alan Nelson is running out of c lean underwear. Barbara Coe jokes about running off to Mexico. And Harold Ezell hardly has time to run his consulting business--helping to obtain legal immigration status for well-to-do foreign investors willing to create new jobs in the United States. Last week's landslide victory of Proposition 187 has proved a dizzying experience for many of the key sponsors of the get-tough illegal immigration ballot measure.

An accountant. A crime analyst. A city councilwoman and her husband, a political consultant. Orange County residents all, they met for the first time two years ago, drawn together by a common contempt for the impact they believed illegal immigrants were having here. Their union would eventually create Proposition 187 and alter California's political landscape.

A federal judge in Los Angeles ruled Friday that Proposition 187, the divisive 1994 ballot initiative targeting illegal immigrants, violates both the Constitution and last year's sweeping congressional overhaul of welfare law. The ruling effectively means that, barring a successful appeal, the controversial measure that focused attention nationwide on the problem of illegal immigration will never be fully implemented.
