The Maryland Court of Appeals ruled yesterday that a lower court erred in ordering a Brooklyn Park man to pay child support for teen-age twins even though the man and his ex-wife agree that he did not father the children. Maryland's highest court ordered Anne Arundel County Circuit Court to rehear the case, saying the lower court incorrectly declared - without blood tests - that the man was not the father and that it should have focused on the key issue of financial support, not paternity, in making its decision.

I would like to disagree with your editorial "A chilling effect" (March 10). I believe that the central issue here is academic freedom. The American Studies Association (ASA), in theory an academic organization devoted to the study of the United States, has violated the essence of academic freedom, which is based on the free flow of ideas, by supporting a boycott of Israeli academic institutions. By calling for the elimination of ties with Israeli colleges and universities, the ASA has taken a political stand which undermines academic freedom.

USA Swimming said late last night that it has decided to suspend Michael Phelps from competition for the next three months as punishment for a photo that was published in a British tabloid over the weekend that appeared to show him smoking marijuana. The organization's board of directors voted on the decision, saying the intent was to send Phelps a "strong message" that it did not approve of his behavior. USA Swimming also said it is withdrawing financial support from Phelps during the suspension, a mostly symbolic punishment.

A New Jersey high school senior, who claims she was kicked out of the house but whose parents claim she left rather than abide by their rules, has filed suit against them demanding financial support. Rachel Canning, who is now 18, moved in with a friend in October. She is asking a judge to require her parents to pay more than $650 a week in support, to pay the remainder due on her Catholic high school tuition and to give her access to a college fund they have for her. In addition, she wants them pay $12,000 in attorney's fees to the father of the friend she now lives with, who filed the suit on her behalf.

THERE'S A "TRUTH SQUAD" nipping at Dr. Robert C. Gallo's heels. At the moment, its four members are pressing furiously to stir up a hornet's nest in the state legislature about the famed scientist's Center for Human Virology, set to open in January. But these critics are confusing scientific etiquette with economic development. Their dispute with Dr. Gallo has little to do with the world-class institute he plans to run, with state and city financial support, in Baltimore.Dr. Gallo, generally regarded as the co-discoverer of the AIDS virus, says these critics are on a "witch hunt."

THE ISSUE: Even as Howard Community College prepares to open its $20 million visual and performing arts center, the Columbia Association's board has turned down a proposal to donate $200,000 to the facility. Some board members were concerned about adding to the association's debt, though they stressed the importance of close ties between the college and the community, and the importance of the arts. What formal role, if any, do you think the Columbia Association should have in relation to the community college's arts programs?

As a graduate of the Johns Hopkins University some years ago, I feel called upon to remind this august body that the motto of the school is, or was, veritas vos liberabit , or, the truth shall make you free. Obviously the present administration does not know that, or, if they do, does not subscribe to it. A few years ago, I ceased all financial support of the school because I felt that it no longer represented the views of myself or many of my fellow graduates. I think that in the current actions of Hopkins, this was a good, but sad decision.

The Board of Regents of the University System of Maryland approved a new residency policy for students yesterday, closing a loophole that was opened by a Court of Appeals decision this month. The new policy states that anyone who is in Maryland solely to attend school is not considered a state resident, and those who receive the majority of financial support from an out-of-state parent will be considered non-residents unless they can prove otherwise. The Court of Appeals threw out the previous policy that automatically gave out-of-state status to students receiving the bulk of their support from out-of-state parents, ruling that regulation "arbitrarily and irrationally discriminates against many bona fide Maryland residents."

Who among us has done something of which we are not particularly proud? Why does one misdeed overshadow the goodness of an individual? I have known the Whalen family for over 30 years and have seen their goodness and the contributions they have made to the Catonsville community. First and foremost, Mr. Whalen has provided thousands of jobs for Catonsville and Baltimore area workers — from construction folks and office workers to those who keep parking lots swept of snow.

I urge all Maryland residents to say "no" to financially supporting circuses that use wild animals. Please ask you congressperson to support HR 3359, the Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act, and help end the use of exotic animals in traveling circuses. Jennifer Jones Columbia

Mark Helman, the founder of Bill's Carpet Fair who appeared in scores of zany television commercials and was a donor to many charities, died of leukemia July 12 at his Pikesville home. He was 80. Born Morris Helman in Philadelphia, he graduated from Olney High School in 1948. He moved to Baltimore and became a "tin man," a salesman for Air-Tite aluminum windows, doors and siding. When he learned that carpet weavers were selling 12-foot-wide lengths at prices middle-class buyers could afford, he embraced wall-to-wall carpet sales.

- Greece won a major pledge of financial support from the other countries that use the euro and the International Monetary Fund in a deal that aims to halt a government debt crisis undermining confidence in Europe's currency union. The joint eurozone and IMF bailout program comes with strict conditions and makes no money available right now. It could be tapped only if Greece or other financially troubled eurozone members cannot raise funds from financial markets. It would require the unanimous agreement of the 16 eurozone countries to release the loan funds.

As Maryland weighs painful cuts in its struggle to achieve a balanced budget, how can the state justify providing financial support for Maryland's 18 private colleges and universities? That's the question raised by recent critics. Their question deserves an answer. State support for independent institutions reaches back as far as the 18th century. Known in its current form as the Sellinger program - after the Rev. Joseph A. Sellinger, longtime president of Loyola College - this funding has been evaluated and endorsed time and again by various state study commissions, by the Maryland Higher Education Commission (of which I am the chairman)
