UCLA has another receiver for Brett Hundley to throw to Thomas Duarte, a receiver from Santa Ana Mater Dei, has signed with the Bruins. Duarte, who is 6 feet 3, 225 pounds, played tight end at Mater Dei. UCLA does not use a tight end often. But he is a fit at Y-back. The Bruins have a need, after losing senior Joseph Fauria. The concern is such that Nate Iese, a linebacker, is expected to get a look at Y-back this spring.

If all philanthropists were required to be morally upright, hospitals would be low on new wings and colleges would be starved for buildings. We'd also be missing a few beloved institutions outright — Stanford and Carnegie Mellon universities are cases in point. Charity is a virtue that should not be off-limits to scoundrels — if, in fact, they are truly giving to an institution rather than tethering their donations with strings that benefit them. Lowell Milken would probably be counted among the less pristine philanthropists, though not among the most scurrilous.

It was last summer when I went out to an L.A. Windward football practice and then assistant coach Chuck Price assured me that now 6-foot-6, 280-pound junior offensive lineman Roy Hemsley would one day be getting college football scholarship offers in bunches. You can say the Price is right. Hemsley, a basketball player turned football player, picked up his latest offer from UCLA on Tuesday. He previously had offers from USC, California, Arizona State, Washington State and San Diego State.

As summer nips at our heels, it's tempting to take to the streets and celebrate. It's that kind of flash mob bonhomie that's at the center of Barbara Ehrenreich's new book, "Dancing in the Streets: A History of Collective Joy." The New York Times writer will discuss her research and how it resonates with Nick Cave's Soundsuits. Fowler Museum, Sunset Boulevard at Westwood Plaza, UCLA. 7 p.m. Thu. (310 ) 825-4361.
