"No respect for your elders," Robert Yara said to Doug Mock after Mock beat Yara to the finish of Saturday's Quacker Quick Quint at Friends School by 37 seconds.All kidding aside, his elders are the reason Mock, a 25-year-old senior at Salisbury State College, made the trek from the Eastern Shore for the second annual 5-miler at Friends School."I've raced a couple times in Delaware," said Mock, who is doing his student teaching this semester, "but I don't think there's any point in going to a race even if there's prize money if my times are a minute or two slower."

For music aficionados, no sword is as double-edged as the international performance competitions that occur with increasing frequency these days.The Van Cliburn Piano Competition, the Tchaikovsky, the Rubinstein, the Chopin -- everyone bemoans them. Dehumanizing marathons that reward stamina, not artistry, critics say. The technically assured, "play-it-safe" types win, while the genuine individualist losesout because stodgy old judges are offended by truly original playing.Yet few things titillate the music world more than a dazzling pianistic Olympiad, which is exactly what events like the Cliburn and the Tchaikovsky have become.

Movie fans hoping to see major American stars at the 47th Cannes Film Festival getting under way tonight will pretty much have to settle for the daily glimpses of jury president Clint Eastwood walking into screenings.The competition films that Mr. Eastwood and his fellow jurors, Catherine Deneuve among them, will judge are conspicuously absent of prominent American movies. There is only one major studio picture on the schedule, Warner Bros.' "The Hudsucker Proxy," and its selection seems more an honorarium for the Coen brothers, who won the Golden Palm with their last film, "Barton Fink."
