As the saga of Monica Lewinsky and President Clinton dominated the national news, staff members of the UCLA Daily Bruin tried to stay above printing gossip and tawdry details. The students made a decision to handle the scandal story better than the national media, to abstain from playing to the lowest common denominator. They wanted to stay so far above the fray that they had chosen to run only a few, short wire service stories on the matter, and even those were deep inside the paper.

Katherine Bleifer, who resigned earlier as editor-in-chief of the UCLA Daily Bruin after a staff revolt, has been appointed to a seat on the Communications Board, publisher of the student-run newspaper. Bleifer, 23-year-old senior history major, said her main goal in serving on the 13-member board will be to develop more support for the special-interest newspapers on campus serving, among other groups, blacks, Latinos, Asians and gays.

We at the Pregnancy Counseling Center in Reseda ("Women's Center Phone Book Listing to Change," Valley Edition, Jan. 21) find ourselves in the undesirable position of having to defend what we do--helping women who are pregnant or suspect they might be pregnant, and who need support of various kinds. On several occasions, we have been called or visited by "bogus" women in crisis. One client posed as a 19-year-old who wanted an abortion, then wrote an article in the UCLA Daily Bruin that was supposed to demonstrate our duplicity and lack of sensitivity.

Amid a debate about free speech in the Internet era, UCLA announced Friday that it would not proceed with any investigation or disciplinary action against the student who produced a controversial online video in which she complained about Asian students' behavior and crudely mimicked Asian languages. "While we were appalled and offended by the sentiments expressed in the video, we have uncovered no facts to lead us to believe the student code of conduct was violated. The campus has no intention of pursuing the matter further," UCLA spokesman Phil Hampton said in a telephone interview Friday.

In "Spacescape," John Marshall's new animated sci fi movie, a detective at the world's first orbiting hotel casino looks out his vehicle and sees a character pushing a shopping cart through space. Marshall imagines a universe where "orbital space is very much like Los Angeles or any other urban environment on earth." A little gritty, in other words. The Oasis Space Resort, modeled on L.A.'s cylinder-towered Bonaventure Hotel, is built from recycled shuttle fuel tanks.
