History: Edmonton formed a rugby club and beat an established Calgary team in 1892. Called the Eskimaux in 1907, they changed their name to Eskimos in 1910. The team disbanded in 1924, then reassembled in 1928, winning the Alberta Rugby championship for the sixth time. The Eskimos won their first Grey Cup in 1954 under Frank "Pop" Ivy. From 1978 through 1982, they dominated the CFL, winning five consecutive Grey Cups. They won their last eight games of 1993 -- after suffering the worst home loss in club history, 52-14, to Winnipeg -- to win the Cup for the 11th time.

A couple who lives near Sen. Joan Carter Conway wanted desperately to have a child but couldn't afford a fertility treatment not covered by insurance. So Conway, a Baltimore Democrat, introduced legislation that would have mandated coverage if the man had a specific disease - non-obstructive azoospermia - and the woman has suffered from ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. "It does cover a very small segment of the population," Conway said as she defended the measure on the floor of the Senate earlier this session.

Painfully cold Arctic air gripped the Northeast and dipped into Maryland yesterday - forcing shelters in Baltimore to stay open all night, trapping ferries in ice in New York, and prompting warnings to bundle up from Maine to Washington. Thermometers overnight registered single digits from the northern reaches of the Mid-Atlantic - and in an extreme case, 36 degrees below zero at Saranac Lake, N.Y. Baltimore was blasted with icy air from the Canadian frontier, forcing many people to stay indoors despite illusory sunshine.

EDMONTON, Alberta -- Ron Lancaster issued the challenge unwittingly, but issued it nonetheless.At a $500-a-plate dinner Thursday night that included his players, Edmonton's coach said the Eskimos would welcome the Baltimore CFLs to town, beat them and send them home.But he didn't say it as politely as that. And he didn't expect the quote to reach the Edmonton newspapers, which it did Saturday, when the CFLs arrived.Lancaster's prophecy came true yesterday when Edmonton beat Baltimore, 31-24, before 31,918 at Commonwealth Stadium.

Baltimore rush end O. J. Brigance doesn't need to be reminded of Damon Allen's prowess afoot.Brigance played the role of chaser last season when Allen, the chasee, set the Canadian Football League's single-game rushing record for a quarterback.Allen ran for 170 yards on 15 carries for the Edmonton Eskimos in a 54-14 rout of the British Columbia Lions.Brigance, then with the Lions, will renew the chase tomorrow at 3:30 p.m., when the CFLs visit the Eskimos at Commonwealth Stadium. He just doesn't want to relive the memory.

TORONTO -- The Canadian government announced yesterday that it had agreed, in effect, to grant political domain over 770,000 square miles, one-fifth of Canada, to the 17,500 Eskimos who live there.Under the agreement, the government accepted the creation of a new political subdivision in Canada to be known as Nunavut, an Eskimo term meaning "our land," and approved carving it out of the eastern reaches of what is now known as the Northwest Territories.For the Eskimos, the agreement marked the culmination of a battle for political and economic rights that began centuries ago, when European explorers first reached the largely barren, icebound terrain of the Arctic archipelago.

YANRAKYNNOT, Russia - The native elders have no explanation. Scientists are perplexed as well. The icy realm of the Eskimo - the tundra and ice of Russia, Alaska, Canada and Greenland - has started to thaw. Strange portents are everywhere. Thunder and lightning, once rare, have become commonplace. An eerie warm wind blows in from the south. Hunters who prided themselves on their ability to read the sky say they no longer can predict the sudden blizzards. "The Earth," one hunter concludes, "is turning faster."

MONTREAL -- In fall 1897, a 7-year-old Inuit boy named Minik was delivered to New York's American Museum of Natural History by the renowned Arctic adventurer Robert E. Peary. The youngster was accompanied by five other "live Eskimo specimens," colorful in fur costume, who drew tens of thousands of gawkers in a day when explorers were super-celebrities and scrutiny of primitive societies all the rage. Within months, four of the Eskimos -- including Minik's father, Qisuk -- were dead, felled by germs to which they possessed no resistance.

Six weeks ago, the Edmonton Eskimos were a fast-fading bunch.The Eskimos had dropped three straight games, including a loss to hapless Ottawa and a back-to-back sweep by archrival Calgary, a series in which two defensive backs went down with injuries. Their quarterback situation was unsettled, their offense inconsistent at best. They had fallen to fourth place in the Canadian Football League's North Division. After 23 consecutive seasons in the playoffs, they seemed ready to watch the postseason.
