Before he was a Hall of Fame defensive tackle for the Baltimore Colts, before he was a late-night wisecracker on television talk shows, before he was Fatso, Art Donovan was something else. An honest-to-gosh, private first class, fighting U.S. Marine. He has a row of ribbons from World War II at home in Towson. He kept the old uniform, too, though it's currently on loan to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Donovan hasn't worn it in decades. "I can't get my arms in the sleeves," he said. It's the man, not his dress blues, that counts, leathernecks say. Hence, Donovan's induction into the U.S. Marine Corps Sports Hall of Fame today at Quantico, Va. Donovan, a five-time All Pro who helped the Colts win back-to-back NFL championships in 1958 and '59, will be enshrined along with Richie Guerin, a six-time NBA All-Star, and Ken Norton, two-time heavyweight boxing champion.

POLITICS," Henry Adams observed, "is the systematic organization of hatreds."In Houston the country-club Republicans supplied the organization and the Buchanan-Robertson brigades supplied the hatreds.Even as the Democratic fringe was being shown the door by the party's new leadership, the GOP was surrendering to its own fringe, the San Jacinto Republicans.San Jacinto is the marshy site near the convention center where, in 1836, Gen. Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna managed to turn his overwhelming advantages over Sam Houston's small army of rebel Texans into a debacle.

A federal grand jury has indicted America's second-largest potato grower, charging that Agri-Empire Corp. used nondisinfected waste water to grow its potatoes before shipping millions of them across the nation to supermarkets, potato brokers and ultimately fast-food restaurants.The company, one of the largest agricultural businesses in California, was not charged with endangering human health, and public health experts said it was impossible to say whether a health hazard would have been created by the practice alleged in the indictment.

East Baltimore may be home to former Dunbar High school standout Sam Cassell, but going to Houston to play professional basketball will be a homecoming of sorts.In Wednesday's NBA draft, the Houston Rockets made Cassell the 24th pick of the first round. Cassell is the first Baltimore player to be selected in the first round since former Dunbar stars Reggie Lewis, Reggie Williams and Muggsy Bogues went in the first round in 1987. In going to Houston, Cassell will be in the same area where he played his first two years of college basketball.

Lloyd and Bright had 2.0s, but did not meet the requirements on the SAT or ACT.After leading Dunbar to a 29-0 record and the nation's No. 1 ranking, Lloyd signed with Arkansas and Bright signed with Massachusetts.

CUMBERLAND -- A few steps inside the Allegany College gym, jerseys hanging near the ceiling represent 75 players who have gone on to play Division I basketball since 1971. Beckoning with their rich reds, whites, blues and golds, they explain why a city kid heads for the hills, wondering along the way, where am I going?"When we started hitting those mountains, I woke up," said Derrick Worrell, 20, a would-be star who recalls being roused by the uphill struggle through five mountain passes on the ride.

Despite a short stay in the main draw of last week's National Claycourt Championships in Pikesville, UMBC tennis player Oscar Lopez followed the first rule of college life: Never waste a good weekend.After losing to Kansas' Luis Uribe in the first round of the tournament, and to Georgia's Talito Corrales in a consolation match, Lopez strolled north and beat Temple's Gio Sasaki, 6-3, 6-3, for the individual title at the ECAC Southern Division championships in Princeton, N.J.UMBC won the team title as well on the shoulders of Lopez, a junior from Torrejiva, Spain, who seems elfin in every way from his 5-foot-4 height and genial manner to the mischievous way in which he often chafes more imposing opponents into submission.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Arkansas has one of the best benches in the nation, and it would have been deeper if two Baltimore standouts had been able to stay with the Razorbacks.In the summer of 1992, coach Nolan Richardson thought his program was getting Michael Lloyd, an All-American guard out of Dunbar, and Craig Tyson, a Southern grad and a Baltimore Sun Player of the Year, who had taken a circuitous route to Fayetteville.Lloyd's freshman year was the last in which the Southeastern Conference accepted academic non-qualifiers, but when he didn't meet the NCAA's standards for initial eligibility he turned down the Arkansas offer and instead enrolled at San Jacinto (Texas)
