His name is Carson McCaurry. We think."That's what it says on the poster, anyway," says Don Elbaum, the fight promoter. "It's the third spelling I've gotten."If there's confusion, it's because Carson McCaurry is really Skippy -----, which is the name he goes by, but which I was asked not to use on account of any possible outstanding lawsuits. McCaurry is the name he was born with, however, if that is indeed how it's spelled."Could be McCurry," says Larry Lowry, who is his handler.Whoever he is -- let's call him Skippy -- he's sitting in a crab house in Pasadena eating the catch of the day. Skippy's got a black eye, a scar over the bridge of his nose and a lot of mangled knuckles decorated with slashes that closely resemble teeth marks.

Our eight-member taste panel came to only one conclusion: 14 types of peanut butter are too many to compare in just one hour. There were no clear-cut winners though a couple of peanut butters were resoundingly loathed.Participants, including those who swore by only certain brands, were unable to pick out their favorites. One man who only refuses to eat anything but Skippy Super Crunch gave it a paltry 4.The findings of our unscientific test did not surprise Mitch Head, executive director for the Peanut Advisory Board in Atlanta.

Catonsville's Justin Holmes will never forget playing on what his coach, Jeff Mohler, called "the worst field in the county."

" Juniors Ben Cohee and Brian Sommer each had four goals and three assists, junior Matt Reymann had four goals and one assist, and junior Micah Powell scored twice against the Crusaders (1-1)

FOR ATTORNEY Warren Brown, it all boils down to a tale of two principals. We know what happened to one, Dr. Andrey Bundley, who was principal at Walbrook High Uniform Services Academy before being transferred to Harbor City Learning Center at the end of this school year. Bundley has been on administrative leave with pay while an investigation continues into alleged grading and graduation irregularities at Walbrook. On Monday, Brown, sitting in his downtown office with Bundley by his side, said there is more to the "administrative leave" -- folks down at the Kremlin don't even have the guts to use the more appropriate word "suspension" -- than we've been led to believe.

Life used to be so simple. For decades the toughest peanut butter decision was crunchy vs. creamy. In the last year, the peanut butter shelves have exploded with new choices.The traditional four brands, in both creamy and crunchy, are Jif, Skippy, Peter Pan and Smuckers. In the last year, Jif introduced "Simply Jif" a new lower salt, lower sugar product and Skippy introduced "Roasted Honey Nut Skippy," a sweeter product using peanuts roasted in honey instead of the more customary oil. Hershey Foods, capitalizing on its well-known chocolate-covered peanut butter candy, brought out a new brand, Reese's crunchy and creamy peanut butters, in January.

IN THESE GIRLS, HOPE IS A MUSCLE. By Madeleine Blais. 263 pages. Atlantic Monthly Press. $21. TOWARD THE end of this extraordinary, if peculiarly titled, book, Kathleen Poe, a starting forward on the 1992-93 Amherst (Mass.) High School Lady Hurricane basketball team, describes the things that transform a mere athlete into a champion basketball player:"There's this feeling that you get. Once you get it, you can get it back again and again, just thinking about the game. It's when you can't distinguish between the emotions that are driving you, but you know they're all there and they want the same thing.
