Corporate events, such as the funerals of CEOs and tycoons, can be cut-and-dry-eyed affairs. But that wasn't the case Tuesday when Steve Ross, late head of Time Warner, was eulogized before an elite group of family, friends and associates at East Hampton's Guild Hall, then buried in "The Springs" under a blanket of lavender roses. This funeral was punctuated by a few Hebrew prayers and songs sung by some of America's most famous talent.

I am a fan of that other college team in town, UCLA. I will be driving to games in an Avis rental car, quenching my thirst with Sam's Cola, checking the time on my Rolex replica, enjoying the companionship of my girlfriend, Ugly Betty, and tracking the Trojans on Court TV.

Making his Los Angeles debut before a roaringly receptive audience, Steve Ross appeared Monday at the L.A. Stage Company West. (He'll be back there Monday.) The crowd included Liza Minnelli, whom he once accompanied, and many others who presumably had heard him at the Algonquin in New York or one of the other chic spots where his genre of cabaret singing has long been in vogue. A tall, slender figure who wears a wing collar, Ross sang part or all of 47 songs.

As the father of a high school senior, I have grown to understand the true meaning of March Madness is not the NCAA basketball tournament, but the seniors waiting for their acceptances to college. Steve Ross Santa Monica

No sooner did Bill Plaschke proclaim L.A. to be a "Bruin football town" in 2001, the USC Trojans began their run of success for which there's still no end in sight. So now that he claims the Angels are one step closer to "headlining Hollywood" [July 24], can the Dodgers' rightful return to city champions and baseball's elite be far behind?

STEVE ROSS Beverly Hills I see Dan Gadzuric has decided to leave UCLA and turn pro after next season. Some club teams in Turkey must be pretty excited about that.

Ten years ago I was concerned that retiring No. 42 in perpetuity wouldn't allow individuals to honor the great accomplishments of Jackie Robinson. I am happy to say that I was wrong and proud to see how many individuals and teams rose to the occasion to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Robinson's historic achievement. Seeing all those 42s gave me an idea for another fitting tribute to Mr. Robinson. How about the Dodgers change the name of their triple-A Las Vegas affiliate from the 51s to the 42s?

When Pete Carroll shifted gears, his Trojans stepped on the gas, found the passing lane and raced to victory at the Rose Bowl. But honestly, did we not expect Michigan's Carr would break down in Pasadena yet again? STEVE ROSS Sherman Oaks Dwayne Jarrett has already turned pro -- he has the T.O. school of taunting down pat. Too bad a player of his talent has to take cheap shots in an otherwise classy performance. KEN BLAKE Brea I thought Bill Plaschke's Sunday column regarding USC lineman Kyle Williams was a waste of ink. Plaschke wants us to believe that missing a few blocks and a couple of false-start penalties are devastating to a college football player.

It was a scenario Dodgers fans dreamed about: Paul Lo Duca delivers a clutch hit during the game-winning rally and Shawn Green squeezes the final out to clinch the National League Division Series. Too bad the champagne flowed in the visitors' clubhouse. Allow me to be the first to say congratulations to the Los Angeles Mets of New York.

Wall Street may be speculating that Warner Communications will become a takeover target if its planned merger with Time Inc. fails. But some important Warner managers want it known that an unwanted raider would find their executive suites empty. "Anyone trying to take over Warner would have to deal with one very serious point. That is, that all key management people--Ahmet Ertegun, Mo Ostin, Bob Krasnow, David Geffen, Terry Semel and Bob Daly--all have key-man clauses tied to Steve Ross," said David Geffen, whose David Geffen Co. distributes both music and movies exclusively through Warner and accounts for about 20% of Warner's domestic record volume.
