In the cruel morning light, the Piano Man looks like a dazed victim--struck down by some runaway baby grand. His eyes bloodshot, he had awakened inside an abandoned apartment building somewhere in North Hollywood and had walked five miles in the rain, downing two malt liquors to take the edge off his aches. Now his hands are trembling from the booze as he drops his soggy, hand-me-down coat onto the barbershop floor.

The century-old, out-of-tune piano is gone. So are the twin barber chairs and time-worn seats where customers at Jim & Tom's Barber Shop once sat to shoot the breeze and leaf through men's magazines like some blue-collar scene from Mayberry. The hand-painted barber pole still stands with its descending red stripe. So do the massive wall mirrors where so many men sternly appraised their new $6 haircut with head turned this way and that.

After more than three decades in the same North Hollywood location, barbers Tom Wilson, 76, and Jim Carcioppolo, 79, are about to find out what it is like to lose their home. And, they say, it's all because some of their clients have no homes of their own.

UC Irvine's big advantage in the Big West tournament became clear at Thursday's tipoff at Honda Center. UC Riverside trotted out 6-foot-7 Taylor Johns to jump center against the Anteaters' 7-foot-6 shot eater, Mamadou Ndiaye. College basketball's tallest player won the tip and top-seeded Irvine was off and churning to a 63-43 quarterfinal victory over the bottom-seeded Highlanders. The workmanlike effort earned Irvine a trip to Friday's 6:30 p.m. semifinal game against seventh-seeded Cal Poly, a shocking 31-point winner over No. 2 UC Santa Barbara.

Film maker Francis Coppola has earned his stripes as a top Hollywood producer. Diligently and without nearly as much fanfare, he is fast becoming a top vintner at his Niebaum Coppola estate at Rutherford in the Napa Valley. Premier claret-like Cabernet Sauvignon vintages, 1978 and 1979, released under the name Rubicon, are outstanding, representing model tastes of "Rutherford Dust," the affectionate name given to the characteristic earthy flavor of the region.

As EXECUTIVE vice president of Azusa Pacific University, David Bixby fields lots of calls. But one that came through last March was a stunner. Howard Kazanjian, a film producer and university trustee, had come across a trove of paintings by a giant of 20th century art that might be donated to the evangelical Christian university. The good news was that the works were said to have been made by Jackson Pollock, the Abstract Expressionist known for his "drip and splash" style.
