WASHINGTON -- Fifty years after Americans helped rebuild a war-torn Europe with the most successful foreign assistance program in history, the United States has become the most tight-fisted aid donor in the industrialized world.

Canada gives nearly four times as great a share of its economic output to developing countries as the United States doles out, and tiny Denmark gives 10 times as much.

WASHINGTON -- In the early days of the Reagan administration, when few Carter appointees were held in high esteem, there was one exception: Bobby Ray Inman.Republicans were competing with each other to hire Mr. Inman, who under President Carter had been head of the top-secret National Security Agency. Sen. Barry Goldwater was pushing him for director of Central Intelligence; Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger asked him to be his assistant secretary for intelligence.In the end, Mr. Inman reluctantly became deputy director of the CIA after President Reagan gave him what he described later as "the smoothest job of arm twisting I've ever encountered."

Lexington, Va. -- The last time the federal government tangled with Virginia Military Institute the government's forces got cuffed around at the battle of New Market by a Confederate contingent leavened by 247 VMI cadets ages 15 to 17. This event is celebrated in a large painting in VMI's chapel, Jackson Memorial Hall, which is named after Stonewall, who for 10 years taught ''natural philosophy,'' meaning science, and artillery here.Today the federal government, which always has been a slow learner, is engaged in an utterly optional fight with VMI. This time, unlike last time, it would serve the national interest for the national government to lose.

HAVRE DE GRACE -- Commencement season looms, and with it the 50th anniversary of the most famous commencement speech of all time, George Marshall's announcement of an extraordinary plan for the reconstruction of war-shattered Europe.General Marshall, the secretary of state, made the speech at Harvard on the afternoon of June 5, 1947. This year, the anniversary machinery is already at full throttle. The Clinton administration is paying close attention.
