FOUR-WHEELERSThe 10th annual International Auto Show rolls...


January 14, 1994


The 10th annual International Auto Show rolls into town tomorrow at the Baltimore Convention Center and Festival Hall.

You can see the newest in the auto market from among the more than 300 new cars and light-duty trucks on display. Along with the new models, see a '38 V-16 Cadillac Roadster and a '48 Chrysler Town & Country convertible that will be part of a special celebration of the 100th anniversary of cars in America.

Admission: $6 for adults, $3 for children under 12. Hours: noon to 10 p.m. Saturdays, and noon to 7 p.m. Sundays. Monday noon to 10 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Show closes Jan. 23. Visit the Babe Ruth Museum, and relive the glory days when Baltimore still had a pro football team with highlights of the '71 National Football League Championship game.

You can marvel over Jim O'Brien's spectacular 32-yard field goal that gave the Colts their victory over Dallas in the game's final minutes. In addition to the film, which will be shown tomorrow and Sunday at noon and 1:30 p.m., the museum will have the '71 Super Bowl trophy on display.

Next weekend, film of the '59 championship game will be shown.

And on the next weekend, film of the '58 overtime win against the New York Giants -- which many pro football purists still refer to as "the greatest game ever played" -- will be the attraction.

The museum is at 216 Emory St., two blocks northwest of the ballpark. Admission: $4.50 for adults; $3 for seniors; $2 for children under 5. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.


High-school basketball teams will compete Monday -- when schools are closed to observe The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday -- at The Arena to raise money for the Fuel Fund of Central Maryland.

The charity event -- proceeds of which help those having problems paying their winter heating bills -- starts at noon with Edgewood vs. Hammond High School and features St. Mary's and Mount Hebron at 2 p.m.; Lake Clifton and Broadneck at 4 p.m.; Western and Hammond at 6 p.m.; and Dunbar and Woodlawn at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $6 in advance at the Arena or Ticketron or $10 at the door.
