The NAACP was under new management yesterday, but its immediate goals were much like those of fired Executive Director Benjamin F. Chavis Jr: recruit members and raise money.In another echo of the ousted leader, the new managers said Dr. Chavis had correctly reported membership in the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People to be 675,000 -- disputing a report by syndicated columnist Carl T. Rowan, based on internal NAACP documents, that put the figure closer to 400,000.

The apparent link between the two men charged in the bombing in Oklahoma City and paramilitary groups has attracted membership in such organizations rather than discouraged it, a new report by the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith says.The report, "Beyond the Bombing: The Militia Menace Grows," concludes that while some paramilitary groups have lost membership since the April 19 bombing, which killed 167 people, "gains plainly appear to outweigh losses.""Our impression is contrary to what would be the normal response to an act so terrible and horrific: that people would shy away," Abraham H. Foxman, the ADL's national director, said in an interview.

For the third consecutive year, membership in the American Bowling Congress has declined. The ABC, the national governing body for tenpin bowling, had its membership drop to 2,922,829 during the 1990-91 season, down from 3,036,907 -- a loss of 3.7 percent -- from the 1989-90 season.Darold Dobs, ABC executive director, attributes this decline to several factors: the loss of 121 bowling centers, the loss of 32 local bowling associations and general overall decline in the nation's economy."We are not pleased with our continuing membership decline, however it is the lowest in the last three seasons," Dobs said.

Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. addressed criticism yesterday of a fund-raiser he hosted at an all-white country club by saying its membership is "not my business," and he complained of a "double standard" because there was no outcry when prominent Democrats held events there. Speaking on WBAL-AM yesterday morning, Ehrlich, a Republican, said the decision to hold an event at the Elkridge Club on June 20 was made by his campaign staff, not by him. Members of the club told The Sun last week that it has never had a black member in its 127-year history.

Opening my kitchen door, I found my neighbor on the step, a large plastic measuring cup gripped tightly in her hands."I'm making dinner and I need something extra for the gravy," she said as she headed for my bathroom. "Where do you keep your NyQuil?"As she wrestled with the tamper-resistant, child-proof cap, I steered her back toward the kitchen and the benign safety of flour."I promise it's just this one time," she explained, attempting to saw through the lid with a Ginsu knife. "It's practically an emergency.
