"I don't know how big the number is, but there will definitely be some kids out," predicted Gilman School Headmaster Henry Smyth, himself an Orioles fan with tickets for Friday's game who faced the quandary of what to do.

A CBS movie tonight takes a firm stand for a woman's right to choose. No, no, no, not that kind of right to choose. Advertisers back away from those movies.No, this sweeps-month special stands up for the freedom to choose to pose naked for Playboy magazine. Apparently advertisers don't balk at a choice like that. Is this a great country, or what?"Posing," which will be on Channel 11 (WBAL) at 9 o'clock, is frankly a better movie than it has any right to be, well-made and nicely acted.

Doctors and hospitals are faced with the risk of skyrocketing malpractice premiums as a result of jury awards that have recently run into the tens of millions of dollars.
