I was amazed to read in Frederick N. Rasmussen's "Alger Hiss' trial still stirs readers" (June 26) the opinion expressed by Timmerman Daughtery that Hiss made a major blunder in hiring William L. Marbury as his counsel. As Ms. Daughtery put it, "if he'd gotten a 'real' lawyer, not a society boy in the beginning, the story would be a different one. " At the time, Mr. Marbury was approaching 50 years of age with 20 years experience as a trial lawyer. He had just completed service as chief counsel of the War Department in charge of procurement for the entire duration of World War II, and was the senior partner of one of Baltimore's most prominent law firms.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- No one need wave a red cape in front of David Alger -- he's already a raging bull. He says the stock market is neither overvalued nor facing a significant correction, and that a recession is nowhere in sight."

The Alger Hiss case, it turns out, is not quite over.It has been nearly 50 years since the late State Department official was convicted of perjury for lying about working as a Soviet agent, the trial inciting what one writer of the day called an American "religious war." Hiss, a man of Baltimore, Johns Hopkins and Harvard Law School, became first an emblem of Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal elite, then a defining figure of the Cold War. Hiss the man died at 92 in 1996, still claiming innocence; Hiss the symbol remains vigorous.

A 47-year-old man was sentenced in Baltimore County Circuit Court yesterday to 18 months for hitting two youths with a baseball bat and chasing them with a shotgun when they drove onto his property in White Marsh last June. Frank W. Alger, of the 800 block of Fair Wind Drive, Bel Air, was sentenced by Judge Christian M. Kahl after Kahl convicted him of second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, resisting arrest and carrying a dangerous weapon. Assistant State's Attorney William Bickel said that the charges were filed after an attack June 24 on Alger's 5-acre property in the 7500 block of Gum Spring Road.

"The other curious thing about the Hiss case is the psychology of believing that Hiss was a spy, which requires abandoning much of what we know about rational thought. " — Newspaper columnist Molly Ivins in 1996 I knew that my Alger Hiss column from a few weeks back would elicit plenty of mail, and I wasn't disappointed. The power of the Hiss story continues to arouse strong emotions even after the passage of more than 60 years. Some who contacted me by phone or email accused me of propagating the idea that Hiss' guilt was still in doubt.

I was in the audience that gathered on a warm May evening in 1974 on the campus of the Johns Hopkins University to listen to a lecture by Alger Hiss, the Baltimore-born diplomat turned spy who had spent 31/2 years in a federal prison in Lewisburg, Pa., after being convicted of perjury in 1950. Here standing before us, dressed in a three-piece suit and carrying an unlit pipe, was one of the most important living Cold War figures, whose guilt or innocence could still divide Baltimore dinner parties nearly three decades after the celebrated case drifted off front pages and into history.

I was finishing a new book about the same time my backyard got planted for summer. The deadline I faced for Sunday's Charles Village Festival garden walk worked wonders to motivate me. Reservoir Hill is also holding its garden tour this weekend. Both tours offer ways to snoop around and not be chased away, and both neighborhoods have a rich history of international intrigue. My reading mentioned one of the 20th-century's biggest spymasters, Allen Dulles, who operated a station in Bern, Switzerland, during World War II and was married to a Baltimorean, Clover Todd.
