PARIS -- First he brought a decidedly overwhelmed Michael Chang, the grown-up version of the 17-year-old 1989 French Open champion, to his knees on the clay of Roland Garros; then Thomas Muster, the new and undisputed king of red clay, dropped onto his back and rubbed his eyes in disbelief after finally scaling and prevailing on the surface of his dreams."

An appeals court on Wednesday sanctioned the police's use of genetic material obtained in one investigation to solve other crimes, but agreed with attorneys for a burglar that questions surround the little known practice. Three judges of the Court of Special Appeals upheld the burglary conviction of George Varriale, a homeless Anne Arundel County man, which was based in part on DNA that he had voluntarily given to police to clear himself in a rape investigation . Genetic material obtained by police with consent of a suspect is not subject to the same legal protections as that compelled from people arrested for certain crimes - the profile need not be expunged from law enforcement databases if the suspect is cleared of wrongdoing, for example.

NEW YORK -- Third seed Thomas Muster wore his intensity on his face last night, and the first game was enough to demonstrate Andre Agassi was going to have to find a way to shake a stubborn man if he was going to find victory in this quarterfinal match of the U.S. Open.The answer came hard, but it came. It came with Agassi's almost machine-line accuracy and his ability to control the points that allowed him to create a cushion Muster could not claw apart.And so it was Agassi who moved into the Open semifinals with a powerful 6-2, 7-5, 4-6, 6-2 victory, denying Muster the opportunity to silence his critics.

Ever since the Supreme Court ruled organized prayer and Bible study in public schools unconstitutional in the early 1960s, conservative Christians have been trying to re-enter the secular arena.   Take Lemon v. Kurtzman (1971). The case, The New York Times wrote last year, "...challenged a 1968 Pennsylvania law that reimbursed religious schools for some expenses, including teachers' salaries and textbooks, so long as they related to instruction on secular subjects also taught in the public schools.

NEW YORK -- David Wheaton had the right game plan; he just couldn't execute it yesterday against No. 6 seed Andre Agassi. Next, it will be Thomas Muster's turn.Wheaton ticked off a two-point plan: Serve well enough to limit the damage Agassi can do with his returns and don't let him control the game from the baseline, because when Agassi does that, he runs his opponents ragged.That's what Agassi did to Wheaton yesterday, taking a, 4-6, 6-2, 6-3, 6-4 victory to advance to the U.S. Open quarterfinals against Muster.

PARIS -- Stefan Edberg, loath to retire without a French Open title to balance out his Grand Slam collection, still has Paris.Yesterday at the French Open, where 88-degree sunshine sent more than one fair weather spectator to the hospital, Edberg kept his cool against a long-haired Spanish hotshot in a headband.Edberg, 30, using a game of serve-and-volley on Center Court, trampled 20th-ranked Carlos Moya, 6-2, 6-2, 6-1."I think it was one of those days where everything that you do turns into gold; I felt like I was 20 today," said Edberg, who received a standing ovation when he left the court.

PARIS -- It was a sweet enough spring day, but Roland Garros germinated a pair of bitter defeats. The tunnel-visioned Thomas Muster no longer can pursue a second consecutive French Open crown, and Stefan Edberg, the consummate tennis professional, will retire without ever having earned one.Muster's four-set loss to Michael Stich ended the chance of extending the recent string of back-to-back winners, launched by Jim Courier in 1991 and 1992 and followed by...

NEW YORK -- Tim Henman's eyes grew large as he looked up and saw Thomas Muster hurtling around the net. And Muster didn't stop. Carrying his racket like a club, he kept running toward the startled Englishman.Henman hesitated only a moment before turning and galloping for cover around a wall that led to an exit from the new Arthur Ashe Stadium.As the crowd laughed, Henman peeked around the wall to see if it was OK to come back out."I've never been chased off a court before," Henman said later, recalling the incident in the sixth game of the third set."

I feel bad for Sojourner-Douglass College students who may see the value of their diplomas go up in smoke ( "With Sojourner-Douglass' accreditation in jeopardy, students in limbo," March 30). Until I became involved with Baltimore International College's similar accreditation problems, I had no idea of the power the Middle States Commission on Higher Education enjoys. More than two years ago the culinary arts and hospitality management school was about to lose its accreditation as well, and since I lived in the neighborhood, the thought of an enormous, empty building was alarming.

BOSTON - The Orioles had few answers to Boston right-hander John Lackey on Thursday night, and after their 3-1 loss to the Red Sox, there was little consolation in the fact that they left Fenway Park having taken two of three from the team with the best record in the American League. With 10 games remaining in the regular season, the Orioles are on the outside of the AL wild-card picture and need to compile wins with a flurry to clinch their second straight postseason berth. Running into Lackey on Thursday night didn't help.

In response to Dan Rodricks ' recent column on New York's "stop-and-frisk" policing policies, I have one suggestion: Move to North Korea or Iran. Once there, you can eagerly support their lack of constitutional rights ( "We want your guns, not your drugs," Aug. 31). Mr. Rodricks claims that "the Constitution sometimes gets in the way of sweeping police practices believed intuitively to be effective. Baltimore police will need to balance aggressive gun enforcement in the shadow of the New York ruling, should it survive appeals.

The Loyola womens lacrosse team returned its entire starting attack from last year's NCAA quarterfinal team. The defense lost three key players, which is why the Greyhounds expected the offense the lead the way in Saturday's season opener against Virginia. However, the game played out a little differently. Freshman goalie Molly Wolf made 11 saves to anchor a solid defensive effort, but Loyola's offense never found its groove, as co-No. 11 Virginia escaped with a 10-9 victory at the Ridley Athletic Complex.

With Baltimore City Police Lt. Col. Melvin Russell's appointment to a new unit dealing with former inmates, I hope he does more than pay lip service to this extremely important aspect of crime prevention ("Police turn to faith for help," Jan. 5). As a former federal inmate I found it impossible to get a job while being honest about my past. Even after using all the organizations and government agencies that offer help, I still couldn't secure even a menial job. I quickly realized I had two options: Either lie on the applications, or start my own business.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland has put in writing its request that the Naval Academy reconsider its ritual of leading students in lunchtime prayer. The group sent a letter Wednesday to the Annapolis superintendent, Vice Adm. Richard J. Naughton, saying that the practice was unlikely to pass "constitutional muster" in the wake of an appellate court ruling Monday striking down supper prayers at the state-run Virginia Military Institute. The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals declared that VMI's suppertime grace violated the principle of church-state separation because of a "coercive atmosphere" that gave students little choice about participating.

This caught my eye this morning: Zappos, the online shoe and clothing retailer, lost a court battle in trying to defend its Terms of Service language from lawyers who are suing the company for losing the online data of 24 million customers. Most businesses who operate websites and even mobile apps have what's called a "Terms of Service" contract that explicitly states the legal relationship between the company and the user. In most cases, the TOS will require users to engage in less-costly arbitration before filing a lawsuit, should a problem arise.

Out-sprinted by swimmers born after she won her first gold medal in 1984, Dara Torres failed in her quest for a sixth Olympic Games Monday night. Torres, 45, of Parkland, Fl., churned down the 50-meter pool in 24.82 seconds, coming in fourth. That was 32/100ths of a second behind first-place finisher, Jessica Hardy, and a mere 9/100th of a second after Kara Lynn Joyce. Hardy, 25, and Joyce, 26, go on to compete in the 50-meter freestyle race in London. Coming in third was Christine Magnuson, also 26. A chagrined but still smiling Torres said it was an emotional and rewarding experience to attempt another Olympics.
