Relatives of John Wilkes Booth and two historians yesterday filed a court petition to exhume the remains of President Lincoln's assassin from Baltimore's Green Mount Cemetery to resolve a long-standing debate over whether Booth is really buried there.They believe the man buried as Booth in 1869 is really someone else, and they dispute traditional accounts that Booth was shot to death by Union soldiers in a burning barn in Northern Virginia 12 days after the assassination in April 1865."Both sides have done decades of research.

Johns Wilkes Booth, who once won rave reviews for his performances at the old Holliday Street Theater in Baltimore, will take center stage here again today, this time in the city's Circuit Court.A group of historians and relatives of President Abraham Lincoln's assassin will appear before Judge Joseph H. H. Kaplan, seeking the court's permission to open Booth's grave and submit whatever remains are there to scientific tests. Their hope is to prove whether the bones are really Booth's.They contend that Booth escaped the Army detail sent to capture him in Virginia after Lincoln's death in April 1865.

Green Mount Cemetery's chairman said yesterday that those who want to exhume the remains of John Wilkes Booth, !c President Lincoln's assassin, must prove their case for exhumation under oath in Baltimore Circuit Court.Two Booth relatives and two historians Monday asked the court to allow disinterment of the body that was buried in Green Mount in 1869 for scientific testing.The historians believe that Booth escaped from a Union Army trap after he shot the president and that the government, after announcing his death, substituted another body to cover up the escape.

Keith Booth will leave a legacy of basketball excellence at Maryland, a legacy made permanent and easy for all to appreciate when Booth's jersey is retired before his last game at Cole Field House tomorrow.Four trips to the NCAA tournament, a high place on many of the school's all-time statistical lists, a senior season in which he carried the Terps to a 20-win season -- those are some of the tangible results of Booth's four-year career.He has done more than any player other than Joe Smith to revive a program that had collapsed under the weight of tragedy and scandal.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- As a freshman playing against Florida State here last season, Keith Booth carried a tired Maryland team to a much-needed victory. His performance not only helped the fading Terrapins break a four-game losing streak, but also illustrated his importance to what had the makings of a one-man team.It came on an afternoon when fellow freshman Joe Smith had gotten into foul trouble and eventually fouled out with a couple of minutes remaining. Booth would finish with 15 points, including 11 of 14 from the free-throw line, and helped Maryland hang on to a 69-66 win."

The first time it was bad. This time it was ridiculous.Dunbar High routed Loyola by 46 points a month ago at Blakefield, a game the Dons could chalk up to an off night.Yesterday in their own gymnasium, the Poets showed it was no fluke, trouncing the Dons, 111-50 and clinching a spot in the Maryland Scholastic Association Division I playoffs.Not that anyone expected Dunbar, with a lineup that includes forwards Keith Booth and Donta Bright and guard Michael Lloyd, to miss postseason play.The three most talented Poets turned the rematch into a dunk-fest that featured 16 reverse slams, 360-slams and grand slams.
