The campus residence for the UCLA chancellor bespeaks the power, culture and resources of a great American university. The elegant Florentine-style house, nearly 11,000 square feet, is surrounded by seven acres of lush landscaping. Inside, walls are lined with valuable paintings, including a Picasso and an Utrillo. The wood-paneled library is stocked with books and sculptures, and there are beautiful Oriental rugs throughout. One thing, however, is missing: No chancellor lives there.

The principal antagonists in a gun battle that killed two men at a fraternity-sorority picnic in Van Nuys were party crashers, but return fire came from at least six other locations at the crowded event, Los Angeles police said Monday. Investigators said at least 10 people had brought guns to the Sunday picnic, at which four young adults were also wounded, although not critically.

Consider this time-honored taunt: The USC marching band strikes up "Tribute to Troy," arousing fans to keep tempo by flashing their fingers in a victory sign. In the opposing bleachers, UCLA students begin to mock them by waving luxury-car keys. Or dollar bills. Or credit cards. "They're trying to say we're all spoiled rich kids," said Summer Neilson, one of USC's blond, blue-eyed song leaders. "You know, USC, University of Spoiled Children. And they're all poor Bruins. It's so lame." Lame?

It is hard to imagine, watching DeShaun Foster sitting on his makeshift throne at media day, diamond earrings, diamond bracelet, sparkling smile. It is hard to envision, watching him tug at his teal and white Carolina Panther jersey, bursting out of his uniform and into the coolest Sunday in sports. But, you know, this could have happened three years ago. His crown could have been the Heisman Trophy. His championship contender could have been UCLA.

If all had gone according to plan, construction would have finished five months ago on a gleaming new hospital at UCLA's Westwood campus, a state-of-the-art facility covered in 15,000 stone panels quarried in Italy. Instead, the $677.7-million project has bogged down, with regulators faulting unapproved work on the site and contractors claiming they are owed $100 million for delays and changes.

Billie Moore, who led the UCLA women's basketball program to national prominence and coached the silver-medal winning 1976 U.S. Olympic team, resigned Wednesday after 16 years at the school. Moore submitted her resignation as the athletic department was conducting a review of her program, prompted by a complaint filed against her in February.

The Riverside County district attorney's office has decided not to file rape charges against three UCLA fraternity members accused of sexually assaulting a sorority woman at a Palm Springs hotel last month, authorities said Wednesday. Deputy Dist. Atty. Rick Erwood said the case was hampered because the woman had consumed marijuana and alcohol and had been participating in a sexually explicit game prior to the incident at the Royal Sun Hotel.

Aaron Harries wanted to play collegiate sports, but his academic ambitions went a bit beyond Cypress College, the only school to show any interest in his athletic abilities. At least he wasn't continually harassed by recruiters during his senior year at Canyon High. His "recruitment" consisted of one letter penned by a Cypress soccer coach who had seen him play goalkeeper for the Comanches. No one seemed to notice he was a first-team All-Century League selection in water polo.

By almost any measure, Dean Florez is one of the most powerful people on the UCLA campus. He has sole authority to make appointments to more than 100 positions on university committees. He has the power to hire and fire 100 employees. He oversees the allotment of hundreds of thousands of dollars, and for part of this year he has served as chairman of a multimillion-dollar campus corporation. Yet Florez is a student.
