In the long-ago period between the two world wars, one of the big treats of the Easter Season in Fresno's Armenian colony was to watch Champion John in action.Champion John -- I never did know his full name -- did his stuff in front of the Holy Trinity Armenian Church. The church was the focal point for many activities in the newly forming Armenian community. Easter was particularly important for a people who pride themselves as the first to adopt Christianity as a state religion.Easter, like Christmas, has come to be surrounded over the years by activities that can hardly be called religious, as witness fancy-dress parades on Fifth Avenue or bacchanalian Mardi Gras festivals.

AVIVIM, Israel -- Israel's two-front conflict saw its heaviest day of fighting yesterday, with nine Israeli soldiers and dozens of Hezbollah fighters killed in Lebanon and at least 23 Palestinians dead in the Gaza Strip. Amid the crisis, U.S., European and Arab officials meeting in Rome failed to reach agreement on a plan to end the fighting between Israel and Hezbollah, and the United States resisted calls for an immediate cease-fire. In fierce house-to-house fighting for control of the strategic border town of Bint Jbail, Israel suffered its highest one-day death toll of the 15-day-old offensive in Lebanon.
