Mary B. "Wesi" Price, a social worker who helped establish the social work department at Greater Baltimore Medical Center, died Saturday of dementia and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease at the Maples of Towson, an assisted-living facility. She was 88. She was born Mary Louise Baldwin into a prominent Baltimore County political family. Her father, H. Streett Baldwin, entered politics in 1928, "spurred by his disgust at the anti-Catholic venom directed against presidential candidate Al Smith," said Mrs. Price's daughter Barbara Percival of Washington.

SEN. BOB DOLE gave a textbook demonstration last week of why he isn't going to be elected president.That is, as Senate majority-leader-to-be, he wheeled and dealed (dealt? my spell-check approves both) on the GATT for advantages -- some of which seemed parochial, some partisan and some so dimly seen as to be suspect.That's what Senate floor leaders do best, but it is not what Americans want in a president. The proof? No Senate floor leader has ever been nominated for president.Now, five were nominated for vice president.

After fire destroyed 82-year-old Mamie Parker's Queenstown home, volunteers sprang into action, saying they'd try to build her a new one.Before a new house could be built, however, the ruins of the old one had to be razed and removed. But Mrs. Parker could not afford it.On Saturday, two local companies came to the rescue.Annapolis-based Norman T. Cully Excavating Co. donated its services to pull the house down and K&K Trash Removal hauled away the debris.Severn resident Richard Thompson, who helped coordinate the effort, said these two jobs alone would have cost about $7,000.

Al Smith sat in the Hughes Stadium press box at Morgan State University with both hands around the small microphone. His eyes scanned the track three stories below, shifting only to glance at information handed to him. "Final call, 3,200-meter run. Final call," he intoned in his deep baritone. Smith calls out the information that keeps so many big track and field meets rolling and is the one that so many high school athletes have heard over the years. The Severna Park resident, 66, has been doing public address announcing for major high school sporting events, like last weekend's Maryland public high school state championship meet, and wrestling, for more than 25 years.

With Friday night's 66-12 victory over Bowling Brook of Carroll County in last weekend's two-day Friends School dual meet tournament, eighth-ranked Owings Mills earned career win No. 250 for 19th-year coach Guy Pritzker. "It means something, but we kind of low-keyed it. I didn't say anything to the kids about it," said Pritzker, 46, whose Eagles went 6-0 in the tournament, raising his career record to 253-39. "I called up my high school coach, John Lowe [Milford Mill]. I told him he was one of the major influences in my life."

BILL CLINTON IS THE only president who attended a Catholic university, and when he welcomed Pope John Paul II to Denver two years ago, he knew to sprinkle his remarks with several "Holy Fathers."It did not spare Mr. Clinton a lecture, however.The pope is opposed to abortion, while the president is not; and the pontiff expressed his views forcefully. "America, you are beautiful and blessed in so many ways," he said as the president squirmed. "If you want equal justice for all, and true freedom and lasting peace, then, America, defend life!"

THIS IS A plea to Democrats. Many are planning to leave the country. Others are threatening to open veins. A few talk of forming survival groups and fleeing to the woods. Most, however, simply sit around weeping.To these Democrats I say, pull yourselves together. The recent Republican victory is not the worst blow to civilization since Attila the Hun popularized sacking and pillage. Not at all.The unterrifying fact is that Republicans are no more inhuman than my Uncle Jack, of whom Aunt Pat used to say, "Jack's not tough, he just needs a shave."

Deep in America's heartland there is a man who knows who our next president will be.He does no polling. He assembles no focus groups. He talks to not a single voter.His name is Corey Ruzicka. He lives in Mishawaka, Ind. He is a statistician.And back in 1991 when we had won the Persian Gulf war and George Bush's approval ratings were stratospheric, Ruzicka predicted that Bush would lose re-election to a semi-obscure politician named Bill Clinton.How does Ruzicka do it? Easy. He looks at the last letter of the last name of each candidate.
