It's 2 in the afternoon, and Andy Bell of Erasure is just waking up. The British singer loudly clears his throat over the phone. He's not sure where his hotel is. "Nashville?" he says. "No, no. Las Vegas. I'm in Las Vegas." Bell and his musical partner, producer Vince Clarke, were in the entertainment capital of the world last week for the first date of the True Colors tour, which stops Sunday at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia. Created by '80s pop star Cyndi Lauper, the national 15-city tour, featuring the veteran British dance-pop duo, Debbie Harry, Rufus Wainwright and others, benefits the Human Rights Campaign and other organizations that support the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.

In a blow to the Baltimore school system's crusade to hold principals responsible for suspected cheating in schools, independent hearing officers have recommended that two administrators who were removed from Abbottston Elementary should be reinstated amid a flawed investigation and a lack of credible evidence provided by the school system. In documents obtained by The Sun this week, the hearing officers raised critical issues about how the system went about establishing fault on the part of the school's administrators.

There has been a great outpouring since the death of Steve Jobs on Wednesday. This is only fitting. Mr. Jobs was responsible for many great outpourings over the past three decades - including my own. In 1984, when I went off to college, I took along the fancy typewriter that had gotten me through high school: a Brother Correctronic with the magical ability to remember - and erase - an entire line of typing. Erasing a regrettable sentence on the Correctronic was simply a matter of pressing a button.

WASHINGTON -- One of the abiding mysteries in the scandal that brought down President Richard M. Nixon is how part of a crucial Watergate tape came to be erased before the White House relinquished it to federal prosecutors.The erasure, popularly known as the 18 1/2 -minute gap, was admitted by Rose Mary Woods, Mr. Nixon's personal secretary and confidante, who insisted in 1973 court testimony that it was accidental. Miss Woods said she had depressed a foot pedal for several minutes inadvertently while talking to a friend on the telephone -- an explanation prosecutors regarded as & 2/3 preposterous but could never disprove.

THE LOW END THEORYA Tribe Called Quest (Jive) Last year, A Tribe Called Quest helped quell rap's long-held lust for lyrical brutality and rhythmic ferocity. Slow and ambient, their hip-hop style (along with De La Soul's), helped forge a more spacey, contemplative approach to the form. So give 'em a nod for originality, but before their album is through, one is more inclined simply to nod off. With repeated listenings, their easygoing sound verges on the narcoleptic. The problem continues this time around, though here the group has done well in one area.

The accidental erasure of some taped statements a father made to Baltimore homicide detectives concerning his role in the death of his 2-month-old daughter last week has prompted an internal investigation, officials said yesterday. "It is regrettable that the tape's contents were lost," Police Commissioner Kevin P. Clark said in a news release announcing the investigation. "However, we believe there is sufficient evidence to support the charges brought by detectives in this case." The disclosure by Clark concerned the arrest and taped admissions of Kenneth L. Jenkins, 20, who was charged with first-degree murder last week in the death of his daughter, A'shia, whose body has not been found.

TC GWELCOME TO WHEREVER YOU AREINXS (Atlantic 82394) Anyone who thinks of INXS as primarily a singles band will probably want to reconsider after hearing the group's ninth and latest album, "Welcome to Wherever You Are." Arty and eclectic, the material served up here goes well beyond the bite-sized pop nuggets INXS usually serves. Indeed, from electronic clangor of "Heaven Sent" to the symphonic splendor of "Baby Don't Cry," this ranks as the band's most ambitious effort to date. Unfortunately, it's also the most unsatisfying, for not only do most of the band's experiments fail, but the few sops to accessibility also flop, seeming either tired (like "Beautiful Girl")

Greatest-hits collections have been around since the beginning of the LP age, and remain a popular format even now -- in part because some pop stars make better singles than albums, but mostly because best-ofs offer more hits-per-minute than other albums.But are these albums really a better buy? Does the song selection truly present the best of a given artist's work? And does a singles-oriented approach always hold up at album length? Judging from the current crop of greatest-hits collections, the answer is sometimes yes, sometimes no.GREATEST HITSGloria Estefan (Epic 53046)

City and state education officials have uncovered widespread cheating on state tests at a Southwest Baltimore elementary school once held up as an example of against-the-odds achievement and have recently revoked the professional license of the principal, whom they are holding responsible. Investigators reviewed hundreds of Maryland State Assessment booklets at George Washington Elementary and found thousands of erasure marks. In nearly all instances, the answers were changed from wrong to right.

CLEVELAND - Police officials said yesterday that a gunman who killed one person and wounded two in a seven-hour attack here Friday led SWAT teams on a "cat-and-mouse" chase through one of the United States' most idiosyncratic architectural complexes, the building that houses Case Western Reserve University's business school. The incident ended about 11 p.m. Friday, when officers shot and wounded a heavily armed man. The police identified the man as Biswanath Halder, 62, a former student in the master of business administration program and a former university employee who had once filed a lawsuit against another employee.

Rattled by more economic numbers that showed the economy is slowing, the Dow Jones industrial average fell 193.49 points yesterday, dampening expectations that the worst of the bear market is over and an economic recovery is around the corner. The Dow, an index of 30 blue-chip stocks, was down 304 points during trading, but firmed in the last hour to close at 8,313.13, off 2.27 percent. The index is down 17 percent for the year. The loss capped off a week that started off promising, with the Dow gaining 447.49 points Monday.
