Chrystal Marie Clifford, who excelled in her college journalism studies, was beginning her career at the Towson Times. She joined the Times staff in June, compiling listings of community events and a digest of school news. Her promotion to reporter was on the horizon, her bosses said. Saturday, Miss Clifford died of injuries suffered when the car she was riding in hit a telephone pole on Frederick Road west of Catonsville. She was 22 and lived in Reisterstown. "She had all the traits you look for in a good reporter," said James S. Keat, a retired assistant managing editor of The Sun who supervised her when she was a summer intern working under the auspices of the Maryland-Delaware-D.

As his part-time shift at the Food Lion in Cockeysville was winding down one recent evening, Robert Chrystal overheard another store employee struggling to communicate with the store manager. When he noticed a Russian accent, Chrystal hurried over to help the two men overcome the language barrier. Then the employee asked a question that, coming from a Russian who had been in the United States less than three weeks, made Chrystal feel honored. "He asked if I was from Russia," said the 34-year-old, who doesn't have a Russian bone in his body.
