Cereal manufacturers used to put all sorts of strange and wonderful (if you were a child) things in their boxes to entice people to buy their products -- baking-powder submarines, fanciful space creatures that rode on a spoon and rings.Kellogg's is doing it again with something that may have collectors of all ages shaking their Corn Flakes boxes for hidden treasure.For the first time since 1983, Kellogg's is putting out a baseball set. This year's is one of the smallest by the cereal maker, and it marks the only appearance this season of Sportflics.

NORTH WILKESBORO, N.C. -- Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains is the track where it all began for NASCAR and Winston Cup stock car racing.Here, behind the red clapboard walls that make up the old-fashioned face of North Wilkesboro Speedway is the oldest track on the NASCAR circuit.Tomorrow, at age 50, the .625-mile track will run its last Winston Cup race, the Tyson Holly Farms 400, ending a long, colorful history and, perhaps more than anything else, signifying the end of an era.The little track that ran its first race in 1947, where the legendary Junior Johnson left the plowing of a cornfield to drive a race among moonshiners' cars in 1948 and that ran its first NASCAR race in a division called Strictly Stock, has reached the end of its road.

Washington. -- I have been judging college-bound students for scholarships lately, and more than a few have asked me, ''What caused the rebirth of racism in America?''I have been asked what happened to produce a climate where people want to deprive them of financial aid, where racism tears a jury apart in the O. J. Simpson trial, and where New York's Republican Sen. Alfonse D'Amato can act like a bigoted idiot by insulting Judge Lance Ito personally and Japanese Americans in general.I am telling these youngsters to be sure to watch the TBS movie Wednesday on the life of baseball hero Hank Aaron.
