THE year of the woman began not in 1992, as we have been led to believe, but in April 1917, 76 years ago, when Jeannette Rankin walked into the House of Representatives as the first woman to enter Congress.On Nov. 7, 1916, Montana elected Rankin, 36 and unmarried, to the House by a plurality of 7,567 votes. At the time, only 12 of the 48 states granted women the right to vote.On her election, pundits raged over the new American Revolution and fanned rumors about her looks and wardrobe.It was said that "the lady from Montana" packed a .44 caliber six-shooter and trimmed her skirts with chaps fur. The press called her a "slip of a girl" and wrote that she was out of her mind to step into a body made up of 434 men. She received countless marriage proposals.

If historians can learn about a civilization by the waste left behind, yesterday's trash-strewn infield of Pimlico Race Course sent one message. "They're party people," said Arthur Ricks, a racecourse employee who spent yesterday cleaning up around the course after the 126th running of the Preakness Stakes on Saturday. "No, they're party animals." An estimated 150 volunteers helped clean the racecourse infield yesterday, with the proceeds of the work being dedicated to purchasing rain forest in Costa Rica.
