NAZARETH, Pa. -- Ten reasons for liking the Martin Guitar Museum, a marvelous raft over a three-century-old river of acoustic music: 10. The inviting atmosphere Visitors are greeted by a two-way display case shaped like a guitar sound hole and a wall quote from Martin acolyte Eric Clapton saying that he'd like to be resurrected as an OM-45. The feeling of a homey history factory, an idea lair, is accentuated by warm lights and comfortable colors, zigzagging display cases and intriguing coves (a re-creation of an old workshop, a pickin' parlor for playing instruments)

These days, when we see a guy in a cowboy hat with a guitar, we immediately think: country singer.But it wasn't always that way. There was a time when what we now think of as country music was divided between two camps.One belonged to the so-called "hillbilly" singers, artists like Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family, and relied on old Appalachian tunes and what came to be known as "the white man's blues." The other was the province of cowboys, a sound that drew on camp songs, gold-rush ballads and the sweet, sad norteno sound of Texas and northern Mexico.

Angels: The Anaheim City Council voted 3-2 yesterday to approve a memorandum of agreement with the Walt Disney Co. for a 33-year lease of Anaheim Stadium, with Disney retaining a 20-year bailout option. The club will be called the Anaheim Angels next season, and in three years they will be playing in a renovated, state-of-the-art stadium. The club will remain in Anaheim for at least two more decades, and more likely 33 years or beyond. Immediately, Disney announced that it has renewed an agreement to buy a minority interest in the California Angels from Gene Autry and his wife, Jackie, and take over operational control of the American League team.

John G. Adams, 91, whose criticism of Joseph McCarthy's anti-Communism campaign helped lead to the senator's downfall, died of lung cancer Thursday in Dallas. Mr. Adams worked at the Capitol and Defense Department and served abroad as a commissioned officer during World War II before he began two years as chief legal adviser to Army Secretary Robert T. Stevens in 1953. Mr. Adams wrote in his memoirs that he soon began suspecting that the Wisconsin Republican was carrying out a personal vendetta against the Army on behalf of an aide's friend.

GENE AUTRY, Okla. -- There is the Gene Autry Chamber of Commerce, and there is the Gene Autry Volunteer Fire Department. The Gene Autry Methodist Church and the Gene Autry Baptist Church. Since 1941, when this dot-on-a-map town in southern Oklahoma renamed itself to honor one of America's first singing cowboys, only one important element has been missing:Gene Autry himself.At a rousing ceremony nearly six decades ago, Autry, then a dashing and beloved 34-year-old radio personality and movie star, spoke of bringing recognition to this small railroad community then called Berwyn.

NEW YORK -- Darnell Autry, a budding thespian, played the leading role in a bittersweet NFL draft drama yesterday.Autry, a theater major at Northwestern, was one of the big losers in the draft when he slid to the fourth round before the Chicago Bears selected him with the ninth pick of the fourth round after he passed up his senior year to enter the draft.That means Autry will likely be playing this fall for the $131,000 minimum salary after he gets a modest signing bonus.If Autry had stayed in school and moved up to the second round next year, he would have made a lot more money, but he didn't sound disappointed at the unfortunate turn of events for him.Maybe he's already a good actor, but he said, "Good things come to those who wait.

BALTIMOREANS ARE fickle about restaurants. Survivors are few; among them: Marconi's, (since 1928), House of Welsh (1900), Haussner's (1926), Velleggia's (1934). But history is rich with the memory of restaurants that in their time were a part of who we were and the way we lived.Miller Brothers was on the south side of Fayette Street between Charles and Liberty Street. It seated 450 on one floor, and was famous for green turtle soup and for elk, buffalo and whale steaks. Most people ordered without looking at the menu; it never changed.
