It isn't perhaps coincidental that USC rediscovered an effective, balanced offense as a tailback emerged from a pack of prospects. USC needed all of its offensive weapons Saturday to hold off Boston College before a crowd of 46,205 and a national television audience at the Coliseum. By winning their home opener, 23-17, the Trojans (1-1) provided Coach Larry Smith with his first USC victory and ended the Eagles' 10-game winning streak, which was the nation's second longest.

When Brian Webster paddled into the waves breaking off Newport Beach on Saturday, he felt sure his beloved older brother Steven was alongside him, as he'd always been since childhood. "I felt his presence -- I felt my brother's spirit here," said Webster, 40, as he joined 250 fellow surfers who turned out to pay tribute to their comrade, who was killed in a terrorist attack in Indonesia. "We loved the water ever since we were kids." Steven Webster was killed Oct.

A day after his death was confirmed half a world away, Steven "Webbie" Webster was mourned Tuesday by friends who called him a happy-go-lucky surfer, fisherman and golfer who shared his positive spirit with them. Webster was killed last weekend in a car-bomb attack in Bali; he had gone to the Indonesian island on a surfing trip with friends to celebrate his birthday. One companion, William Steven "Crabbie" Cabler, arrived home weak and sick early Tuesday.

USC Coach Larry Smith has said that his offensive line is the most unsettled area of his team, and the situation isn't getting any better. Guards Brent Parkinson and Mark Sager, both of whom are injured, won't be on the traveling squad today when USC leaves for Thursday night's game against Boston College in Chestnut Hill, Mass. Linebacker Junior Seau, who has an ankle injury, and cornerback Dwayne Garner, who has been suffering from back spasms, also will stay home.

USC held a spring football scrimmage Saturday at the Coliseum before a few thousand fans and Coach Larry Smith is hopeful that it wasn't a preview of next season's team. "I've never had so much slop (penalties)," Smith said. "We're not a good team right now. Our execution was terrible." He was specifically referring to the offense in the 121-play game-type scrimmage.

In several stories about our client Steven Webster, who recently received a probationary sentence related to charges of eavesdropping on executive meetings at Fox's FX Network, The Times failed to give the full picture ("Ex-Publicist at Fox's FX Gets Probation for Eavesdropping," Jan. 5). Although the deputy district attorney handling the matter described Webster's conduct "almost as industrial espionage," the court record makes clear that this allegation was totally unfounded. "There's nothing here ... where I can put my finger on a point where Steven caused his former company to suffer a loss -- in other words, somebody got ahold of a show idea, Fox lost out on this ... anything of that nature," Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Norman J. Shapiro said during the sentencing hearing.
