Robert Shipley Auerbach, one of the founding members of the Maryland Green Party and the party's three-time nominee for the U.S. House of Representatives, died Dec. 12 from injuries suffered in a hit-and-run accident that evening in Greenbelt. He was 92. Born in New York City in 1919, Mr. Auerbach became involved in politics, particularly election reform, in the 1930s. He was active in such groups as the Congress of Racial Equality and the War Resisters League. Mr. Auerbach moved to Greenbelt, where he ran for City Council, more than 50 years ago. A founder of the Green Party's Maryland affiliate, he was nominated for the state's 5th District seat, for the third time, this year.

XTC"Our Vampires, Ourselves," by Nina Auerbach. University of Chicago Press. 231 pages. $22 Despite a liberal dose of pop-culture references - including its title, a witty send-up of the self-help staple, "Our Bodies, Ourselves" - Nina Auerbach' s "Our Vampires, Ourselves" is not for the casual vampire fan. Still, this monograph is accessible enough to attract more than a niche market of Gothic scholars and devotees of Bram Stoker or Bela Lugosi.Literate readers of many stripes will find much to savor in this academic survey of vampires from romanticism to Reaganism, and those who have been yearning for a thorough analysis of the shifting role of the character Van Helsing (originally from Stoker's classic 1879 novel, "Dracula")

There is one problem with breaking a record that has stood for many years. It tends to diminish the holder of the old record.That's the way it is in the wake of Lenny Wilkens' becoming the NBA's all-time winningest coach.Wilkens set the record when his Hawks beat the Bullets last weekend in Atlanta. It was Lenny's 939th career victory, one more than Red Auerbach had with the Boston Celtics.There are millions who might take that to mean Wilkens is the best pro basketball coach ever. Remember, Auerbach hasn't been the Boston Celtics' coach since 1966.

What most people don't realize is that Red Auerbach married the prettiest girl in town. Even in her 70s, Dorothy (Lewis) Auerbach was an elegant presence in the finest Sophia Loren sense, and one can only imagine what a head-turning traffic-stopper she must have been when young Arnie Auerbach slipped that ring onto her finger oh, so many years ago. But should we be surprised? We already knew Red, who died at 89 Saturday, had an eye for talent. Well, yes, there was the problem with his original dismissal of Bob Cousy as merely an overrated favorite of the "local yokels," but the Cousy episode was one of the very few professional misjudgments in the career of the most important non-playing person in the history of professional basketball.

Who's who, anyway?What do former track star Jim Ryun and Japanese bacteriologist Shibasaburo Kitasato have in common? Hold onto your hats, but they were among a handful of people deleted in the "1991 World Book Encyclopedia."On the other hand, seven sports figures were added to the new edition: Red Auerbach, Boris Becker, Nadia Comaneci, Pete Maravich, Joe Montana, Wilma Rudolph and Nolan Ryan. You have to wonder what took so long for Auerbach, architect of the Celtics' great success starting in the 1950s.

DETROIT -- Now that the "three-peat" issue is deader than a shredded piston ring, it is perhaps historically significant to remember the last time such extended professional basketball supremacy was realized.It was the spring of 1966, when the Boston Celtics, in the seventh game of a best-of-seven championship series, beat the Los Angeles Lakers for their eighth consecutive NBA title.Back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back.Pat Riley coined the annoying three-peat term while he was coaching the Los Angeles Lakers in their recent quest for a set of triple National Basketball Association crowns, which Detroit ruined with its first title.

WHEN I WAS growing up in Southern California, I hated John Wooden - the legendary UCLA basketball coach who won 10 national championships during the 1960s and '70s. I was a rabid USC fan, so it was required. The same goes for the equally legendary Boston Celtics coach and general manager Red Auerbach, who presided over the greatest dynasty in NBA history at about the same time. I was also a Los Angeles Lakers fan, so it also was required. Now, I would have been content to forget the basketball frustration of my youth and keep those hoop nightmares buried somewhere deep in my sports subconscious, but a couple of sportswriter acquaintances of mine have decided to make me re-live the whole discouraging era during this otherwise happy holiday season.

The mood was festive for the debut of new Loyola coach Jimmy Patsos at Reitz Arena last night. Many who knew or worked with Patsos while he was an assistant under Gary Williams at Maryland for 13 seasons showed up for support - and it was an impressive group. The spectators included Red Auerbach, Juan Dixon, Greg Manning and Billy Hahn. But Navy freshman guard Corey Johnson spoiled the party by scoring 13 of his 21 points in the second half to help the Midshipmen rally for an 89-86 victory over Loyola before 1,645.

THIRD PARTY is written all over Bob Auerbach. Could be the broad-brimmed straw hat with political buttons orbiting the crown - "Meat is Murder," "We Won't Go," "Socialist Party" - or the fringe of white beard or a blissful demeanor suggesting abiding faith in further human improvement. In other words, not your basic congressman. Nonetheless, he is running for Congress as a Green Party candidate, which would not be so novel except that the Green Party will appear on state ballots this year.

Back home in one piece An Irish scholar has found a manuscript written by James Joyce in 1923 and abandoned by him a year later, a British newspaper reported yesterday.Danis Rose stumbled on the neglected texts of seven short stories as he worked the Irish author's papers in the course of research for a critical edition of "Finnegans Wake," Joyce's most complex work, the Guardian said."It's very, very exciting," Mr. Rose said. "It is the most significant textual find of this century. It alters for ever our current model of Joyce.

It's sheer audacity, bordering on madness, to suggest that the Los Angeles Lakers can win a fourth straight NBA title after emerging from a Christmas Day home loss to the Sacramento Kings with an 11-19 record. Isn't it? How in the world could the Lakers conceive of another victory parade down the streets of Los Angeles when they were supposedly left on the roadside such a short time ago? "The most difficult thing is not going to be able to get one victory against the Lakers, but to get four victories against the Lakers," said ABC/ESPN analyst Bill Walton.
