It was 1943, the United States was at war, and the first Rodgers and Hammerstein collaboration opened on Broadway, where it went on to make theatrical history. The show was ''Oklahoma!'' and was said to be one of the first musicals whose songs carried the plot forward.Whether or not the claim was valid hardly mattered. What did matter was that ''Oklahoma!'' with its immediately memorable score, was just what audiences needed, those who wanted to forget about the war for a few hours.The Burn Brae Dinner Theater is currently doing the musical, and if you want to see what the shouting was about, get over there.

GREENBELT - A federal grand jury indicted a Silver Spring woman yesterday on murder charges in the death of a U.S. Park Police officer who was struck and killed Aug. 10 at the scene of an earlier fatal accident on Baltimore-Washington Parkway. Jovada P. Welch, 20, was indicted on charges of second-degree murder and related traffic offenses, including driving under the influence. She was charged in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt because the victim, Hakim Farthing, was a federal officer and the incident occurred on federal land.

WASHINGTON - Iraq's majority Shiite Muslims, victims of oppression and betrayal, are waiting in wary passivity for American and British forces to topple Saddam Hussein, but there are signs they might eventually take up arms against their would-be liberators. Representing 60 percent of Iraqis, Shiites have long been shut out of political power by Iraq's Sunni elite and repeatedly brutalized since Hussein seized power in 1979. Most are quietly eager for his regime to be destroyed, exiles say. But they remain bitter that the West refused to back their uprising against Hussein after the 1991 Persian Gulf war when then-President George Bush encouraged them to rebel, and they share a widespread Iraqi distrust of occupying powers.

ATLANTA -- When Ricky Proehl made the game-winning, 30-yard touchdown catch that put the St. Louis Rams in the Super Bowl last week, he didn't realize just what a catch it was until he saw a photo of it in the newspaper the next day. The photo showed him catching the bottom of the ball with his left arm against his shoulder before pulling it in. "When I saw the picture, I said, `Wow.' When you see it happen in fast motion, it looks like it was just a routine catch. In slow motion and in the picture, it looks like a tough catch.

ALBANY, N.Y. - Silent in the first half, Carmelo Anthony scored 18 second-half points to steer Syracuse past Auburn, 79-78, last night in an East Regional semifinal of the NCAA tournament. Anthony's dazzling array of dunks and three-pointers sends the Orangemen into tomorrow's East final against Oklahoma, a 65-54 winner over Butler in the other semifinal. The Orangemen (27-5) played in a home-court atmosphere at Pepsi Arena, which is 145 miles from the Syracuse campus. The orange-clad crowd rooted for Butler in the opener, then turned the 15,000-seat arena into a cauldron for Auburn.

IN SOUTHERN IRAQ -- Refugees walking south from Basra said yesterday that demonstrations against Iraqi President Saddam Hussein were rocking the war-damaged city.The refugees made up a thin line of misery as they left the city, Iraq's second-largest and its only port, and walked along the desert road toward Kuwait, 30 miles away. Few had possessions other than a bottle of water; some stumbled and seemed about to fall.They said thousands of people were marching in demonstrations that began yesterday against Mr. Hussein and had clashed with army members still loyal to the Iraqi leader.
