Take me out to the . . . beach?

The arrival of warm weather means two things to many Baltimoreans: the beach and baseball. And while there does not seem to be a relationship between these two pastimes . . .

With the new Major League Baseball Swimwear by harborcasuals, female beachgoers can now show pride in their RTC favorite baseball team. These bathing suits display the unique style and logo of each of the 28 Major League Baseball teams.

The suits are available in three basic styles: For the conservative beachgoer, there is a one-piece suit for $54.99. For the woman who wants less of a coverup, there are tank or two-piece bra styles for $62.99.

Don't have a favorite team or fear offending hometown fans by wearing a suit promoting another city's team? Get yourself a suit featuring all the Major League team logos or one in the style of a baseball.

Major League Baseball Swimwear is sold at Macy's, Nordstrom and Water, Water, Everywhere.

Have you ever dreamed of having the world's greatest artwork on display in your home or office? Reproductions of such art can now be on your computer screen, if not your walls. ArtScreens by Trident Software Inc. preserve the quality of a computer monitor while displaying a choice of full-color paintings from 40 famous artists.

Much of this art, by such masters as DaVinci, Rembrandt, Monet and Picasso, can only be found in the great museums of the world. In fact, Trident Software received special permission from the Louvre in Paris, the National Gallery in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City to offer these screen savers.

Besides enhancing your workspace decor, the ArtScreens program offers an educational bonus: Trident Software provides a 50-page booklet that gives background on each painting and its artist.

Made for an IBM or IBM compatible PC, ArtScreens cost $39.95 and are available at CompUSA, Electronics Boutique, Computer City and Micro Center. For more information, call Trident Software Inc. at (703) 761-6165.

For students 12 to 21, Day Runner, manufacturer of electronic and paper organizers, has brought out some new paper planners to help keep track of busy schedules.

The Academic Planner is spiral-bound and comes in two sizes, 5 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches ($6) and 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches ($8). It comes in green, blue and purple marble or tapestry designs. Each includes a monthly calendar, spaces for class schedules, assignments and notes, and a telephone address section. There also are reference pages, including listings of commonly misspelled words and conversion tables and information about the 50 states and 42 U.S. presidents.

The FactCentre Student Organizer ($15), with blue, red or black vinyl covers, is loose leaf and refillable and includes a dictionary and credit card holder.

Both planners are available at stationery and department stores or by calling Day Runner, (800) 635-5544.
