"Hungry Hobos," a 1928 Walt Disney animated short film that was considered lost for decades, will screen Saturday at UCLA as part of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra's 24th annual Silent Film Event. The short, which predates Mickey Mouse and stars the character Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, is one of the earliest Disney cartoons. Staff at the Huntley Film Archives, a stock footage company in England, found a 16-mm print of the movie in a vault there in 2011, surprising many in the animation community who assumed it had been destroyed like so many silent-era films.

Jeff Tully BURBANK -- Alfonso Tucay did all he could to help his UCLA men's water polo team win its third straight NCAA championship. However, despite two goals from the former Burroughs High standout, the Bruins fell Sunday to top-ranked Stanford, 8-5, in the title match at Palo Alto. It was the third time this season Stanford (22-1) defeated the Bruins (16-5). Brett Ormsby also had two goals for UCLA. The Bruins suffered from a sputtering offense early in the match, as the Cardinal jumped out to a 3-0 lead midway through the first quarter.

Anton Arboleda grabbed his driver, removing the head cover, a bear surrounded by blue and gold — the mascot, colors and insignia of the UCLA Bruins. It's Arboleda's skill with a driver, and all the other clubs in his golf bag, which has helped him land a spot at his dream school, UCLA, on a partial golf scholarship. In the fall, he will begin classes in Westwood, only months after graduating from La Cañada High, where he made a name for himself in the sport. The 17-year old Arboleda started honing his prowess with a club when he was just 3, going out to the driving range with his dad, Antonio.
