LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- In the closing weeks of the 1992 presidential campaign, there were widespread rumors here that Arkansas state troopers assigned to Gov. Bill Clinton's security detail would be the source of a fresh story of his sexual escapades that might knock his candidacy off its feet.When the story finally materialized last week, nearly a year into Mr. Clinton's presidency, it was the White House that was thrown off balance.Mr. Clinton has battled allegations of sexual indiscretions for much of his political career.

Tianna Hawkins had 20 points off 9-for-9 shooting from the field, and the No. 9 Maryland women's basketball team cruised to a 76-36 victory against Brown in the opening round of the Terrapin Classic on Friday. Hawkins has created matchup problems for most opponents this season, and she wasted little time establishing her dominance against the Bears, as she scored 16 of her 20 points in the first half. Alyssa Thomas had 16 points and Katie Rutan added 11 points for the Terrapins (9-2)

"Senseless" would be another appropriate word for your "letter of the day" if our community permits the closure of the Ark ("Preschool for homeless children losing its home" July 13). As the only accredited preschool for homeless kids in Baltimore, the Ark gives children in unstable environments the opportunity to prepare for school and parents the chance to get back to work. Losing this resource would undercut two true solutions to homelessness. In my work with homeless and at-risk children over the past two decades, it's clear that those in stable and nurturing educational environments demonstrate greater social interaction and markedly improved health status than those without such supports.

Maybe in the larger scheme of things, this is small stuff. But on a day gloomy with bad weather and worse news, I was happy to learn that a Baltimore preschool for homeless children won't be homeless itself after all. I'd written about The Ark this summer, at a time when it was desperate to find another home because its downtown building was being sold. Something about a preschool for homeless kids being booted out into the street just gnawed at me — and apparently others. "All I did was pick up the phone and call a number of folks who I thought might care," said Mark Furst.

The news that The Ark, the only state-accredited preschool for homeless children in Baltimore, is losing its home and has not found another location is heartbreaking ("Preschool on the streets?" July 13). The Ark gives the homeless children of Baltimore an excellent academic and nurturing start to prepare them for kindergarten. When I volunteered there, I was so impressed with the program - equal to any private preschool - including the teachers, the director Nancy Newman, and the sweet and curious children.

Not everyone approves of a zoo. Animals are jailed; they live unnatural lives; they cannot extend their instincts and abilities. Some people think that modern society should give up zoos and just watch animal videos.Those people are wrong. Zoos are more indispensable than ever. They bring people of a society together in one place as nothing else does save possibly baseball. They succeed on one level as freak shows yet on another as extraordinarily sophisticated education providers. They cater wonderfully to the simplest minds in society and the most complex.

The year my son was 6, he had one thing on his Christmas list. One thing only. The Millennium Falcon.Remember Han Solo's space ship in the movie ''Star Wars?'' That's all my son wanted. He asked us about it every day. Did we think Santa Claus would bring him one? Were we sure Santa had gotten his letter?One thing really worried him. How would Santa know where to find us? We'd moved that fall. That Christmas was our first in our new home. How would Santa know where we were? Suppose Santa left our presents at the old house?

By all accounts, Anthony Hobbs couldn't leap through a gym roof, drop three-pointers through the nets like rain or throw down a tomahawk dunk for his Little Rock, Ark., basketball team. Hobbs, who collapsed near his bench less than four minutes into Wednesday's conference opener for the Parkview Patriots and died an hour later, was the standard-issue 16-year-old high school athlete, a kid apparently talented enough to play in a sport but not quite gifted enough to excel, so his death might pass from our consciousness quickly without causing much of a dent.

Frostburg-- --The steel skeleton is more visionary art than ark. Still, a visitor can make out the arklike bowed front of Pastor Richard Greene's roadside attraction off Interstate 68. Three stories high and set in concrete, the steel structure shares a foothill with its loyal billboard: "Noah's Ark Being Rebuilt Here." Nothing, however, has been built in seven years. "I feel terrible about it. I've asked God, `Why are you taking so long to build this ark?' " says Greene, a genial, coat-and-tie preacher who appeared for a time with Jim Bakker and Pat Robertson on the TV circuit in the 1980s.

WASHINGTON -- One by one, like a Washington version of the game "Ten Little Indians," the Arkansans whom President Clinton brought to town to help him run the White House have taken a tumble.Yesterday, Thomas F. "Mack" McLarty III, who stepped aside as chief of staff to become counselor to the president, became the latest of the close-knit group of Arkansas FOBs -- Friends of Bill -- to find themselves knocked off the track.Like Jimmy Carter, who brought a cargo of Georgians with him, and Ronald Reagan, who imported some California pals to fill out his administration, Mr. Clinton brought scores of associates from his home state with him -- even some, like Mr. McLarty, from his birthplace -- many of them to fill top positions.

WASHINGTON -- A former aide to presidential adviser Karl Rove who replaced one of the recently ousted U.S. attorneys has decided not to seek the job permanently after concluding that the Senate would block his confirmation. J. Timothy Griffin, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas, said yesterday that he wasn't asked to step aside by the administration, despite the issues sparked by Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales' unexpected firings of seven Republican-appointed U.S. attorneys.
