Dame Alicia Markova , 94, one of the 20th century's greatest ballerinas and a co-founder of the English National Ballet, died Thursday in Bath, England. She was working until her health worsened a few months ago, the ballet company said. Born Lilian Alicia Marks in London, she was 10 when she made her stage debut, billed as Little Alicia, the Child Pavlova, referring to one of the world's best-known ballerinas, Anna Pavlova. After training with Serafima Astavieva in London, she joined Serge Diaghilev's Ballets Russes in 1925 at the age of 14 and adopted the more exotic name of Markova.

"Something Special," by Iris Murdoch, illustrations by Michael McCurdy (Norton, 55 pages, $15.95). Only extraordinary marketing avarice or something literarily very special could account for making an entire hardcover book of a 9,000-word short story. "Something Special" meets the justifying criterion. The late and deeply lamented Dame Iris wrote 20 novels plus almost infinite works of philosophy, scholarship and criticism. This is an exquisitely powerful, humane and beautiful short story that richly explores the heart, mind and strengths of a 24-year-old Irishwoman.

"I told my mom that I wanted to make history in college. I made it a little bit. I wanted to leave and have everybody remember my name. I've worked hard on and off the field to try and get where I want to get." Laurence Maroney University of Minnesota running back "You think you've got a guy down, and he throws it 40 yards across the field, and you have to run that far. It's kind of a pain in the butt." Corey McKeon Nebraska linebacker, on the wild, lateral-filled last play of the Alamo Bowl "He flows to the ball.
