After last Saturday's 8-4 victory over No. 13 Johns Hopkins, No. 5 Loyola was thought to be a lock for an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament if the reigning national champion did not repeat as Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament champions this week. Few expected the Greyhounds to fall to No. 8 Ohio State in a conference tournament semifinal, but that is what happened as the Buckeyes pulled off an 18-11 upset at Hobart in Geneva, N.Y., Thursday night. Now Loyola's tournament profile is in question, and it is an unsettling situation for the players and coach Charley Toomey as they await to hear their fate Sunday night when the NCAA selection committee unveils the 16-team field.

Is the sensation of pins and needles in the feet or hands a sign of something serious? Usually, no, but it can be. Most cases of that tingling sensation, which some lay people incorrectly call "numbness," occur when a foot or hand "falls asleep," said Dr. Ahmet Hoke, director of the neuromuscular division of neurology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. If you sit on your feet, for example, it puts so much pressure on the nerves that they temporarily become electrically unstable, sending off impulses to the brain when they shouldn't.

AT LEAST since 1930, Helen Shriver has created hand-sewn items with Church of the Ascension's Pins and Needles group.

For 28 years, the women have crafted items for the church's largest fund-raiser, the Mistletoe Mart.

Billy Boniface is spending some restless nights as the clock winds down to Monday's scheduled end of the General Assembly session with no clear resolution on slots in sight. The outcome, he says, will have a profound effect on his family-owned thoroughbred horse breeding and training farm in Harford County. He sees slot-machine gambling as vital to the economic well-being of Maryland's horse industry. "We go to bed thinking about it," Boniface said. "We all thought by April 12 it would all be over with, and now we're told that it might not be over with then after all. We might be thinking about it when we go to bed at night for quite some time.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va.-- The Headless Woman, the Man-Eating Snake and the World's Largest Rat were just a few of the attractions at yesterday's Lollapalooza '96 here.No, these aren't the names of bands. Lollapalooza, which attracted some 25,000 people, has become as much a carnival as a music festival.Once the gates opened at noon, spectators were treated to a potpourri of interactive and hyperactive activities. There was a half-pipe where skateboard and bicycle demonstrations were being given by Airwalk, a skateboard accessories manufacturer.

To gauge Maake Kemoeatu's excitement in going from an undrafted rookie to starter, one only had to watch him after his first interview in front of a crowd of reporters. The 6-foot-5, 340-pound nose tackle bumped chests with fellow lineman Tony Weaver and said, "Can you believe that [just happened]?" It's a question that has been asked of Kemoeatu over this past year. Several coaches and players indicated he has made the biggest improvement of any player, comparing his strength and balance to former Raven Tony Siragusa.

If you love great football, you're probably wondering why the NFL chose to put this season's Super Bowl in Arizona. If you love a great cactus, however, this desert wonderland is the place to be. There are hundreds of varieties of cacti and succulents dotting the arid landscape that surrounds the Phoenix metropolitan area, including the classic saguaro cactus that can grow to heights of more than 50 feet. For some strange reason, however, cactus climbing has never caught on here. The locals enjoy golf, tennis and telling people how to get to the Grand Canyon, but they are also proud of the striking desertscapes burned into our collective consciousness by the many Western movies and television shows set here.

Members of both parties must be nervously wondering who is going to vote Nov. 3.To regain control of the House, Democrats need to gain only 11 seats, but that would be the best gain for a party holding the presidency since the emergence of the two-party system.
