Corrections
Monday's article "Fate of Campus Construction Lies with Proposition" incorrectly states that UC is helping to fund a $7 million "Yes on Prop. 47" campaign. Actually, no UC funds are being spent on the campaign; rather, the University of California Campus Foundations will be contributing money to the campaign.

Movie Re-Preview: What's Old is New Again: ‘Lawrence of Arabia'
