MILLERSVILLE, Pa. -- From the coins he traded to the dollars he bet on the ponies to the cash he allegedly pocketed as a Soviet-paid spy, money mattered to Robert S. Lipka.For 30 years, he parlayed his interest in foreign currency into a business. For nearly as long, Mr. Lipka gambled -- he had a personal account at an off-track betting parlor not far from his home in the Pennsylvania countryside. And it was cash, not Communist ideology, that moved Mr. Lipka to spy, federal investigators say.Government officials say they don't know how much Mr. Lipka allegedly earned selling national defense secrets to Soviet agents from 1964 to 1974.

PHILADELPHIA -- A former National Security Agency clerk accused of spying for the Soviets was ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation yesterday after he charged that "undercover agents" were planting drugs in his prison cell and said his pain medication was producing memory loss and confusion.During a bail-review hearing, Robert S. Lipka, 50, who has pleaded not guilty to one count of espionage, testified that he once saw an NSA file on Richard M. Nixon that suggested he spied for the Russians.

The tale of the FBI's trap for suspected spy Robert S. Lipka, laid out in a 20-page affidavit, reads at times like a passage from a John LeCarre spy novel -- with moments from the old television slapstick show "Get Smart."The FBI played a cat-and-mouse game with Mr. Lipka in clandestine meetings in Pennsylvania and Baltimore in 1993, as an investigator posing as a Russian military intelligence agent sought to provoke Mr. Lipka into incriminating himself.The FBI agent improvised his role as Russian spy, persuasively faking answers to some questions but flubbing a few key lines.

IT'S THE oldest story in show biz, isn't it? Four 30-ish guys who love to sing and dance and act finally get their big break the way so many struggling artists do: playing a "boy band" in a BGE commercial warning kids not to touch downed power lines. Oh, sure, happens every day. The band is called the Electric Boyz - hey, this is a utility company bankrolling this baby, not Puffy Combs - and their 30-second spot gets a heavy rotation on MTV, Nickelodeon and the Cartoon Network, which allows the boyz, er, boys, to dream that maybe some heavy hitter in the recording industry will notice them and throw fistfuls of money at them so they can quit their days jobs as a hair-stylist, fork-lift operator, waiter and youth counselor.

PHILADELPHIA -- A former Army clerk at Fort Meade admitted through tears yesterday that he sold state secrets to the Soviet Union three decades ago in a case equal parts Cold War intrigue and slapstick farce.Robert S. Lipka, 51 and seeking to avoid the possibility of life in prison, pleaded guilty to one count of espionage in exchange for a jail term of no more than 18 years.Federal prosecutors said they agreed to the deal in order to protect the anonymity of a witness who would have had to testify in disguise if the case had gone to trial.
