RALEIGH, N.C. -- Everett Case, who put North Carolina State basketball on the map after World War II, was from Indiana. David Thompson, the greatest player in the history of the Wolfpack - and perhaps all of the Atlantic Coast Conference - came out of the Tobacco Road metropolis of Boiling Springs. Jim Valvano, a wise guy from Queens, guided State's second NCAA title. And now, for something completely different, the Wolfpack has a Top 25 team with an Eastern European flavor. Senior forward Ilian Evtimov, probably as experienced as any player in the ACC and possibly the widest traveled, spent most of his adolescence in France but was born in Bulgaria.

.TC COPENHAGEN, Denmark - The North Atlantic Treaty Organization made an unprecedented offer to Eastern European nations and the Soviet Union to participate in sweeping political and military cooperation.On the first day of a two-day meeting here yesterday, the NATO foreign ministers issued a declaration reaching out to their onetime Communist enemies in the now-disbanded Warsaw Pact military alliance.However, the 16-member NATO appeared to close the door on the issue of admitting Eastern European members into the Atlantic Alliance because it does not wish to "isolate" the Soviet Union or see "a new division of Europe," the delegates said in their statement.

WASHINGTON -- Cold War nostalgia buffs, take heart.There is one area in which the Russia and the United States are not partners and certainly not "friends" -- to borrow a word that President Bush used at Camp David yesterday. They are still good old-fashioned adversaries in espionage.Russian spying against the United States continues with no significant reduction from the days of the old Soviet Union, says Wayne Gilbert, the FBI's assistant director in charge of foreign counter-intelligence.

Brussels, Belgium--At the height of the Cold War, people used to hear: "The Russians are coming!" In the postwar era, things haven't changed much. The Russians and their former Warsaw Pact allies may still be coming. But this time it's with suitcases rather than tanks.Unrest in the Soviet Union and its six former Eastern European satellites -- Hungary, Poland, Bulgaria, Romania, East Germany and Czechoslovakia -- could send millions of economic refugees rushing across the former front lines of the Cold War in search of food, shelter and jobs.

In the summer of 2004, I was making my way from St. Petersburg, Russia, to Istanbul, Turkey, by bus and train. Traveling through Eastern Europe is an amazing experience. Everywhere you go, you are surrounded by evidence of ancient buildings and cultures. An unexpected destination during my travels was the graveyards across the region. The European style of caring for graveyards is to visit them frequently and adorn the graves with fresh flowers. In many ways, graveyards are beautiful, with engravings speaking of what the dearly departed meant to the family they left behind.

MILWAUKEE - Victoria Kordus was in surgical scrubs, about to assist with an operation, when the anesthesiologist mentioned to her that dozens of Polish students had been left stranded on the streets here after the summer jobs they had been promised suddenly vanished. So Kordus, a surgical technician whose two youngest children had just gone off on their own, tracked down some of the students and opened the door of her modest bungalow to them. First there were eight; then suddenly there were a dozen, four of whom had been living in a car. "I told them if they didn't mind sleeping on the floor, they were welcome," Kordus said.

Tortellini, pirogi, pot stickers, shao mai, kreplach, wontons and other worldly dumplings in the audience, please say hello to another cousin: pelmeny. Pelmeny, sometimes spelled pel'meni in cookbooks, are button-size Russian meat dumplings. They are folded, twisted and shaped exactly like tortellini. After simmering in broth to cook, they are tossed with butter, drizzled with vinegar and eaten as a main course. In Russia, and especially in Siberia where they are a staple, they're prepared in large quantities and kept in the "freezer" -- outdoors in sacks -- to last through the whole winter, ready to be cooked as needed.

Somewhere in Clement Greenberg's last book, "Homemade Aesthetics," the famous critic and champion of abstract art remarked that while the very best modern American painting of his era was certainly abstract, the next best painting was figurative and representational. Greenberg was at pains to avoid the implication that abstract art was in principle "better" than other kinds of art: It was just that in New York in the 1950s and early 1960s, the very best art happened to be abstract. That did not alter the fact that figurative painting could be very good - much better, indeed, than second-rate abstract art, which Greenberg thought was about as bad as you could get. A couple of local shows seem to bear out the idea that the era produced many artists whose works remain touching and true despite their traditional style.

BUDAPEST -- On the weekend President Clinton came to Hungary, there was a line of many hundreds of locals waiting for four hours for their chance to get close to an American celebrity.The throng wasn't vying to see Mr. Clinton -- whose appearance was barely noted here.

Klezmer, the traditional wedding music of East European Jews, is making a spirited comeback in modern America, and you don't even have to be Jewish to like it."It's wonderful. It's sort of Jewish country music," says Carl Auvil, 77, who was born in a West Virginia town he says was so white and Protestant that the Ku Klux Klan couldn't find anybody to persecute. He finds klezmer foot-stomping enough for the Grand Ol' Opry.Mr. Auvil and his wife, Irene, are dancing to the Machaya Klezmer Band at the Holiday Inn in Chevy Chase.
