Daniel Taradash, 90, who won an Oscar for his screenplay adaptation of James Jones' best-selling novel From Here to Eternity, died of cancer Feb. 22 at a Los Angeles hospital. Best known for adapting sprawling novels and Broadway plays, Taradash's screenwriting credits include writing or co-writing adaptations of Clifford Odets' Golden Boy, William Inge's Picnic and James Michener's Hawaii. But From Here to Eternity, the 1953 film version of Jones' novel about Army life in Hawaii during the months leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbor, was the one movie for which Taradash said he received the most compliments.

With the exception of about seven seconds, the Coppin State men's basketball team played remarkable second-half defense against South Carolina State last night, holding the Bulldogs to 28 percent shooting. Unfortunately for the Eagles, those seven seconds were all it took for Mike Wiatre to drive the length of the court for a layup with four seconds left, lifting South Carolina State to a 60-59 victory at the Coppin Center. In addition to keeping the Bulldogs alone in first place in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, the win also avenged a 15-point defeat to the Eagles on Dec. 4. "We didn't come to play and they did," South Carolina State forward James Jones said, remembering the first game.
