St. Mary's Industrial School for Boys was Ruth's primary home from age 7 to 19. His main influence was Brother Matthias Boutilier, a physically imposing Xaverian and the school's disciplinarian. Ruth revered Brother Matthias and credited him with honing Ruth's fielding skills. As the school's star athlete, Ruth played his way out of St. Mary's when Jack Dunn signed him to a contract with the International Leaguer's Orioles in 1914.

Westminster's baseball team, an uncertain quality a month ago, is developing into a force in the county and a title contender in the Central Maryland Conference.Two new coaches -- Scott Tobias and Jim Rodriguez -- had to mesh a solid core of seniors and a group of juniors, and as any coach will tell you, that isn't always easy."We graduated 10 seniors from last year's 14-7 team, so we came into this season not knowing what was going to happen," said Chris Matthias, one of the team's tri-captains with Matt Bowers and Chris Gibson, before a recent practice.

Henry Matthias hasn't talked much about his fighting days in the Korean War, never felt as if he was living with some deep secret, never was ashamed of what he and his Army unit had done, even if he wished it hadn't been necessary.Now, though, he's a bit nervous because other people are talking about his Army days and what American soldiers did in Korea half a century ago."I'm worried we're going to be the bad guys now," Matthias said yesterday, sitting at the kitchen table in his mobile home in Elkridge, smoking one cigarette after the other -- no filter.

BERLIN -- Newly released information shows that German firms played the key role in helping Iraq extend the range of its Scud rockets so that they can hit Israel.The Institute for Customs Criminality in Cologne is only 10 days into its investigation of nine German trading companies, but evidence has already been released indicating that German firms provided the pumps and other propulsion elements that allow the Soviet-built Scuds to more than double their original range of 185 miles to 400 miles.

It's not a very hospitable place, that 5100 block of Holabird Avenue.There's a lot of asphalt and concrete, and the sidewalk temperature was pushing 125 degrees at noon yesterday.A chain-link fence topped by three strands of barbed wire stretches the entire block. On one side is the sprawling, but idle, General Motors Corp. minivan assembly plant. On the other, about 35 placard-carrying auto workers who were expressing their displeasure over the way the plant is being operated.The striking members of the United Auto Workers were beginning the third week of a walkout over what they charge are unsafe working conditions.
