A WAR IN THE immediate future has become less likely, which is, of course, good news. At the very least, it provides more time for reflecting on past experiences and future prospects.On May 4, 1939, an article was published in the Paris daily L'Oeuvre titled ''Mourir pour Dantzig?'' (To die for Danzig?), which made journalistic history; never had a single article caused such a storm.

LAUREL -- The seventh event at Laurel Race Course yesterday was just an ordinary maiden race. But for the friends and family of Chris Fabifzak, it was a race they never will forget.Fabifzak, 32, who had worked as a groom for trainer Joe Devereux the past three years, died early Friday in Baltimore. A large, jovial, ruddy man, he was the spiritual leader of the J.D. Hogs, an informal, fun-loving group named for friends and employees of Devereux's."He was the type of guy who would do anything for anybody," said Terry Kupfer, one of the Hogs.
