WASHINGTON - During Bernadine Healy's tumultuous final six months as president of the American Red Cross, the nonprofit agency awarded her $1.9 million. As a result, Healy's replacement, former Rear Adm. Marsha Evans, and the agency's board have launched separate reviews of the way the Red Cross compensates its senior employees. Healy wept in public frustration when she was forced out of the top American Red Cross job in the tense and confusing aftermath of the Sept. 11 terror attacks in the fall of 2001.

The University of Maryland, College Park received further validation yesterday of its growing national reputation as it jumped into the top 20 of U.S. News & World Report's ranking of public universities. The university moved from 21st to 18th among public universities, tied with the University of Georgia and one notch behind the University of Florida. It moved ahead of Texas A&M University, the University of Minnesota, Purdue University and Ohio State University. The rise can be attributed in large part to an increase in the key measurement of "peer assessment," the reputation of its academic programs among presidents and college admissions officials at other universities.

CAN A wealthy artist and a visionary new building allow the University of Maryland to move finally beyond the imagery of college sports? Less boisterous than the university's many coaching icons, painter Clarice Smith officiated with grace and humility last weekend at the opening of a $120 million building named in her honor. If the arts can compete with basketball, the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center could be the venue. Seen by some as a cow college transformed into a football power by Curley Byrd and then to a basketball mill by Lefty Driesell, the university struggles for academic distinction.
