The American clock brings us to the 50th anniversaries of two extraordinary events involving two extraordinary women, Gloria Richardson Dandridge and Madalyn Murray O'Hair — both strong-willed champions of liberty and disturbers of the status quo, but women of very different character, purpose and legacy. One is now 91 years old, long esteemed as a brave civil rights leader who refused to smile on demand and who famously brushed away a bayonet. The other was a noisy atheist, reviled as the most hated woman in America; she died a violent death nearly two decades ago. This month marks 50 years since the race riots in Cambridge, the small city on Maryland's Eastern Shore that became a crucible for civil rights in 1963.

The nickname for athletic teams at Iowa State University is "the Cyclones." The nickname for athletic teams at the University of Iowa is "the Hawkeyes." So I made a mistake in a recent column about former U.S. Naval Academy wrestlers Lloyd Keaser and Wayne Hicks. The column said "an assistant Iowa State coach asked Hicks to work out with some 112-pound high school kid the Hawkeyes were thinking of recruiting." It should have said an assistant Iowa State coach asked Hicks to work out with some 112-pound high school kid the Cyclones were thinking of recruiting.

Irene Dandridge, the Baltimore Teachers Union president for the past 15 years, will face two challengers when teachers elect their next union leader tomorrow.Ms. Dandridge, who said she has been challenged only twice before, squares off against Donna A. Money, 43, a teacher at Madison Square Elementary, and Deborah Sharpe, 29, a special education teacher at Harford Heights Elementary.Both challengers charge that leaders of the 8,500-member union have failed to organize teachers and parents into a lobbying unit to fight school privatization, to reduce class sizes and to demand higher salaries, among other things.

For her efforts as the charismatic head of the Cambridge Non-Violent Action Committee during the battle for civil rights in the early 1960s, Gloria Richardson Dandridge was called "Glorious Gloria." Others said she was like a second Harriet Tubman.The strong-willed housewife, who fearlessly pushed aside the bayonets of the National Guardsmen sent to maintain law and order, rose to national prominence as a civil rights leader who led marches and was arrested as she sought to promote civil rights for Eastern Shore blacks.

It must be an unwritten axiom: When you meet people who are considered larger than life, you expect them to be physically larger than what they are. So I was taken aback when Gloria Richardson Dandridge opened the door to her Manhattan apartment for me in October. She was still slender, as slender as I'd seen her in those pictures taken back during the 1960s, when she led civil rights demonstrations in Cambridge and served as chairwoman of the Cambridge Nonviolent Action Committee, better known as CNAC.

ROCKVILLE -- As the prosecution moves toward the expected testimony of Lee Boyd Malvo as early as Monday, a ballistics expert testified yesterday that all but two of the people hit by sniper's bullets during the 2002 Washington-area shootings could only have been shot by the .223-caliber Bushmaster rifle found in John Allen Muhammad's car at the time of his arrest. Bullets taken from the bodies of eight people who died and three who were wounded were fired from the Bushmaster, ballistics expert Walter Dandridge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives told the jury.
