USC is entering the final weeks of the spring semester, so a group of USC football players got together and went to class -- in full uniform. Quarterback Matt Barkley, safety T.J. McDonald, receivers Robert Woods and Marqise Lee, running back Curtis McNeal and center Khaled Holmes took part. The athletic department's video department documented their tour of campus. Barkley and about a dozen other players are scheduled to travel to Haiti in May to help build houses and help with relief efforts in the aftermath of the devastating 2010 earthquake.

The fee that Josephine Serrano Collier paid in 1946 for the application to become a policewoman in the Los Angeles Police Department was just $1, but it cost her much more than that. Not only was her family against it, her fiance broke off their engagement. And she was bucking a feeling of mistrust in the Latino community toward the police. But Collier, who had lost her Rosie-the-Riveter job at Lockheed at the end of World War II, needed work and felt she could be a liaison between the community and the LAPD.

PARIS -- The auction catalog entry for Lot 900 was short, simple and utterly shocking: "CONCENTRATION CAMP -- striped uniform of a political prisoner held in a German camp. Jacket in mixed wool, style grey and Nattier blue stripes. Identification number and red triangles sewn. Good condition. 400/600€. " The item was due to go under the hammer at the respected Hotel Drouot auction house next Tuesday as part of a sale of historical artifacts, mostly political posters. However, when two of Paris' Communist councilors spotted the item, they were outraged and forced the auction house to withdraw it. "At first I couldn't believe it was true.

PHOENIX  - Carl Crawford is sporting a new number this spring, having dumped the No. 25 he wore last year in favor of No. 3. "I didn't like the number," Crawford said. "I wanted to change. It just didn't feel comfortable. " When Crawford arrived in Los Angeles from Boston in 2012, Hanley Ramirez had the No. 13 Crawford wore in 10 of his first 11 big league seasons and Manager Don Mattingly the No. 8 Crawford wore as a rookie. But when No. 3, last worn by Skip Schumaker , became available this off-season, Crawford grabbed it. "I've got three kids now," he said.

Montclair Prep baseball Coach Walt Steele decided his team needed to be challenged. Battles, at least over the short term, would be waged with bare knuckles. Steele threw down the gloves. And the wristbands. And the uniforms. After the Mounties were blown out by Alemany, 15-7, in the third game of the season, Steele had seen enough. Montclair Prep was 1-2 and going nowhere fast. "We lost to Alemany, ugly ," Steele said.

The NFL is intensely protective of its sponsorship deals and therefore extremely nitpicky about players wearing anything that violates the uniform code. Turns out Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has gotten away with a violation throughout his career, one spotted by a keen-eyed observer at Forbes.com. The tiny clips that hold Newton's protective visor in place are imprinted with Under Armour logos, a company that pays the quarterback to endorse its products. Nike is the NFL's official uniform provider, and Riddell is its helmet company.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Requiring public school students to wear polo shirts emblazoned with such messages as “Tomorrow's Leaders” potentially infringes on their rights to free speech, a unanimous federal appeals court decided Friday. A three-judge panel of the U.S. 9 th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a district judge's dismissal of a lawsuit by parents of two elementary school children whose uniform contained the leadership message. The court said the uniform policy must be justified under a stringent legal test that is difficult to meet.

SAN FRANCISCO - A public elementary school decided in 2011 to require students to wear a uniform with the school's motto, "Tomorrow's Leaders," emblazoned in small letters on the shirts around a gopher, the campus mascot. One parent objected to the uniforms and eventually sued, contending they violated the 1st Amendment's guarantee of free speech. In a unanimous ruling Friday, a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit largely agreed with her. The panel said the words "Tomorrow's Leaders" potentially violated students' right to free speech and the uniform policy must go unless the school district can justify it under a legal standard that is difficult to meet.

Question: Each year half a million knee replacements are done in this country, and almost as many hip replacements. These metal implants almost always set off the alarm in the screenings (I know). But the screening of a traveler with an implant is quite variable. Why doesn't the Transportation Security Administration have a standard exam for us "bionic" travelers? R. E. Berg Newport Beach Answer: We've criticized the TSA for treating all of us as potential evildoers, and in an interview in December 2013, TSA administrator John Pistole said the agency was moving away from its one-size-is-the-right-size philosophy.

At Alhambra High School's 20th reunion for the class of 1988, Colleen Solanga knew something wasn't right about Steve Burton's outfit. To be sure, it was Halloween, but Solanga didn't think this was a costume. Burton was dressed as a Marine lieutenant colonel, according to court documents, and was wearing a Purple Heart, Bronze Star and a Navy Cross, that service's highest honor. A Navy commander, Solanga became suspicious and asked Burton if he would pose for a picture with her, according to an affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles.

The era of the peacock pro-basketball player is upon us. Having an off-court look is as important as on-court play, stylists are de rigueur and a player's presence in the front row of fashion shows no longer turns heads. Since the City of Angels is now a bona fide two-team town, we thought it time to take a look at how the Lakers and Clippers would fare in a full-fledged fashion throw-down. Hardwood wardrobe Clippers: Not fireworks worthy but maybe seaworthy. The Los Angeles Clippers home uniform is old-school patriotic white with red and blue trim, the away version predominantly red with pops of blue and white.

The London Underground logo is instantly recognizable. So are the entrances to the New York City subway. But in Los Angeles?
