In the hasty-crazy of life, I have been stopping by Elaine Erickson's house for interviews that have turned into happy recitals. Sometimes she sits at her grand piano, covered with papers, music scores, letters and works-in-progress, and she plays for me."Do you want to hear a piece called 'David Plays For Saul?' " she asks. "I wrote it. It's about Saul, on his throne in great despair, and David soothing him with his harp.""Sure," I say.I sit in a comfortable chair with Flora, Elaine's cat, at my feet, and I'm astonished and delighted by what I hear.

YOU CAN credit many leaders with helping to bring voting rights to the previously disenfranchised; President Lyndon Johnson, Martin Luther King Jr. and Medgar Evers all played key roles. You can also credit the Rev. Hosea Williams, the medal-winning war veteran who died last week at the age of 74. Mr. Williams marched with passion and pride alongside King to fulfill the promises of the 15th Amendment. He helped lead the famous march from Selma, Ala., to Montgomery in 1965 that focused the nation's attention on the quest by black people for denied voting rights.

In a game where patience was a lost virtue, Mount St. Joseph (4-4) made three free throws in the final 38 seconds and escaped with a 60-57 victory at Aberdeen (3-1) last night.The visitors made the opening quarter their best one of the game, building a 21-14 lead, but just when it appeared they could put this one away, they seemed to back off and let Aberdeen hang around and stay in contention.This was true as late as the closing two minutes, too. The home team had struggled to get ties at 47 and 49, then had three turnovers as the Baltimore school, helped by two foul shots and dTC a basket by Rich Dent, pulled out to a 55-49 margin.
