When Samuel L. Morison of Crofton was charged this week with stealing documents from the U.S. Navy's archive in Washington, it was a rare event for the facility. "There has not been a theft like this in recent memory," said Paul Taylor, a spokesman for the Naval History and Heritage Command, from whose collection Morison allegedly took three boxes of files used by his grandfather, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Samuel Eliot Morison. Theft is a very real danger within the quiet rooms of the nation's historical research facilities.

The program of dances by legendary choreographer Paul Taylor, which opened for a run of seven performances at the Kennedy Center's Eisenhower Theater Tuesday night, filled the theater and our hearts with enduring dances that delighted, amused and tugged at our emotions.The Paul Taylor Dance Company has a long history (more than 40 years), and Mr. Taylor has won a special place in the hearts of dance fans with works that resonate with little truths about human foibles and idiosyncrasies. The four dances -- "Arden Court," "Esplanade," "Fields of Grass" and "Snow White" -- each have Mr. Taylor's unerring wit and eye for connecting movement details to create larger portraits.

A grandson of the Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Samuel Eliot Morison has been charged with stealing nearly three boxes of documents that his grandfather used to write a 15-volume history of World War II commissioned by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Authorities found some of the documents when they raided the Crofton home of Samuel L. Morison in May, according to federal charges unsealed Tuesday. Others had been put up for sale. They had been missing for more than a year. Morison, 69, appeared briefly in court following his arrest Tuesday morning, according to the U.S. attorney's office.

WHEN IT COMES to jazz, I've been a snob over the years and all but dismissed smooth jazz. Oh, it's so boring, I thought. What's going on there? Not much imagination. Not much improvisation. I thought smooth jazz records were like TV fireplaces: They work in the background and generate no real heat. But smooth jazz isn't all bad. Some of the older stuff in the genre -- George Benson's Breezin' and Grover Washington's Winelight, for instance -- are classic pieces of music, period. In any category, you find some gems among all the duds.

*TC Almost certainly, Paul Taylor has been asked more than any other soul alive whether he has ever committed adultery.He is not asked because of any suspicions along those lines. He is asked -- usually in jest -- because he himself once and famously posed that question himself. It helped end the presidential candidacy of Gary Hart in 1987.It did not, though, as some seem to think, also ultimately lead to the end of Paul Taylor's career in journalism. "Sometimes it's been portrayed as the thing that made me go sour on political coverage, which is not quite right," Taylor says.

Apprenticeship is an old idea that's gaining new ground -- especially in dance companies. The Joffrey Ballet and Martha Graham have enjoyed the benefits of having an alternate company, where new dancers can hone their skills while learning repertory. The most recent addition is Paul Taylor.The Paul Taylor 2 company, under the direction of Linda Hodes, presented its second-ever performance Wednesday night at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. The program was danced by five fresh-faced performers primed to perform the works of one of the country's best choreographers.

"Goddess: Martha Graham's Dancers Remember," by Robert Tracy. Limelight Editions. 323 pages.Calling a book about Martha Graham "Goddess" rather than the more obvious "Priestess" is attention-getting. Graham, the leader of the modern dance movement from the 1930s through the 1960s, never dubbed herself a goddess as Robert Tracy does here. But there is a rationale in his title. His book is a compilation of interviews and reflections about Graham by dancers who worked with her throughout the decades.

Washington -- If this were England, Joanne Woodward mused they would be knighted. But this being America, they were simply -- and more democratically -- honored.But this also being Washington circa the Bush-Clinton transition, this year's Kennedy Center Honors -- celebrated this weekend by a head-turning celebrity crowd flocking to a city that usually makes do with committee chairmen and undersecretaries for its people-spotting -- seems more big-D Democratic than little-D democratic. Not only is any arts gathering assumed to be more Democrat-leaning, the annual Kennedy Center honors first were held in 1978 -- during the last period the big-Ds were in the Big Time.

New operas don't often score knock-outs. But, if crowd response were the determining factor, "Approaching Ali" sure sounded like a champion Saturday night at the Kennedy Center, where Washington National Opera presented the premiere of this hour-long piece. The applause was loud and long, a heartening reaction to witness for any freshly written opera. And there certainly was a lot to cheer in this modest-dimensioned, entertaining work. "Approaching Ali," based on Davis Miller's autobiographical book "The Tao of Muhammad Ali," features an imaginative score by Baltimore School for the Arts alum D.J. Sparr.

Second Landmark Conference tournament crown in three years? Check. School-record number of wins in a single season? Check. First NCAA tournament victory? Goucher can now cross that off its to-do list after edging Washington, 5-4, in a first-round contest at Roy Kirby, Jr. Stadium in Chestertown Wednesday afternoon. The accomplishment may not sound like much to programs like Salisbury, Cortland and Tufts, but try telling that to the Gophers players. “It means everything,” senior attackman Rory Averett said.

Daniel Taylor already was planning to join the Israeli army. Rocket attacks by Hezbollah over the past month, the Baltimore teenager says, have only confirmed his decision. "The timing worked out perfectly," the 18-year-old Taylor said yesterday. "They need all the help they can get right now, and what better way to help a country that I love?" Taylor has never been to Israel, and speaks little Hebrew. He has never lived away from home, and was too young to remember the last time he was on a plane - a transatlantic flight when he was 2. But a week from today, Taylor expects to leave for Jerusalem, where he plans to join the Israel Defense Forces.

For reasons that remain mysterious, Baltimore has been unable to establish a thriving resident professional dance company on the order of the Pacific Northwest Ballet of Seattle, the San Francisco Ballet or the New York City Ballet. So it might be natural to conclude that Charm City has made a negligible contribution to the dance world. That conclusion would be wrong. The dance schools that serve as Baltimore's professional training grounds are relatively young -- the oldest dates back to the 1960s - but they're now at a stage when their list of alumni performing professionally is growing quickly.

WASHINGTON -- U.S. new-home construction was stronger than expected last month, and builders said they expect sales to stay strong.Housing starts fell 1.3 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.766 million units, the Commerce Department said yesterday. That beat the expected rate of 1.741 million, and was the third-highest rate since February 1987.Low unemployment, rising incomes and low interest rates led to record homebuying last year, a trend that unexpectedly continued at the start of this year.
