LEXINGTON, Va. - Confederate ghosts crowd the Robert E. Lee Chapel at Washington and Lee University - ghosts of the rebel general, who served as president of the college and is buried in the chapel crypt; of his horse, Traveller, buried outside the chapel door; and of the dozen Washington and Lee students killed on Civil War battlefields. But a different sort of spirit ruled the chapel last weekend - that of Ralph Ellison, the late author of the 1952 classic Invisible Man. Scholars of African-American literature and political theory had gathered at the college from around the country for a conference marking the 50th anniversary of the book's publication, and kicked off the symposium in the hallowed chapel.

LILLY IS BACK. And she's going to college. At the age of 71, no less. Lilly Pulitzer, the Palm Beach, Fla., socialite who made a national sensation out of a simple shift dress in the 1960s, has returned to the fashion front page. And it's the college kids who are putting her there. The resurgence of the whimsical florals in watermelon pink and green is no news to the fashionistas, who gave the dowager queen of preppy-dom a standing ovation at the spring 2003 runway shows. But the trickle-down to the masses is under way and much in evidence during a recent visit to Washington & Lee University in Lexington, Va. -- a college old enough and just far enough south to be steeped in tradition.

Royal Farms quietly grew over decades into one of Baltimore's most ubiquitous businesses, but last week the convenience store chain took a bigger stage. On Wednesday, the city approved a $1.25 million, five-year agreement for Royal Farms to serve as title sponsor for the Baltimore Arena, to be known starting Nov. 1 as Royal Farms Arena. The move, which comes in the midst of accelerated expansion and after years of careful branding, is a statement of bigger ambitions that simultaneously ties the retailer, headquartered in offices above one of its stores on The Avenue in Hampden, more closely to its local customers, industry watchers said "By having an arena that carries your name, you're saying, 'Not only are we the corner store, but we're the corner store in your community,' " said Jeff Lenard, vice president of strategic industry initiatives for the National Association of Convenience Stores.
