WASHINGTON -- You might think the defense establishment and pro-military Republican politicians would be the best of friends, possibly even soul mates. Not so.The initial exchanges between Pentagon leaders and GOP lawmakers who want to strengthen the nation's defenses have produced a striking level of tension.For example:* Sen. Strom Thurmond, the GOP chairman of the Armed Services Committee, has told the service chiefs to "look to the head of their chain of command" -- meaning President Clinton -- ** not to Congress, to place blame for any lack of war-fighting funds.

When it comes to soul mates, it's a matter of faith. You believe or you don't. There are some big-time believers. Greek philosopher Plato wrote in his Symposium that humans have been looking for their soul mate since Zeus cut them in half. Oprah devoted an issue of her magazine to the subject of romantic destiny: The karmic psychic was skeptical, but the Catholic priest was all for it. New-age gurus take the spontaneity out of love with their belief that everyone has already found his or her soul mate - just in a past life.

Hit the pits in your relationship? Can't stand your significant other? Wish fate had never entwined your lives?Not to worry.This temporary troublemaker could be your lifelong soul mate, according to Thomas Moore, author of a best-selling new book, "Soul Mates."That's because the soul roots deeply into the muck of life -- amid petty grievances, screaming fights and the Sisyphean struggle to work it out. Even if the relationship doesn't last, he believes, the depth of your connection has fundamentally changed your life and led you down a new path toward destiny.

Their images reside at opposite poles, and are as starkly different as a blue work shirt and haute couture. Indiana's Hoosiers are the ones pictured always in that down-home garb, and inevitably they are portrayed as successful testaments to sweat, callouses, skinned knees and the discipline drilled into them by Bob Knight. Michigan's Wolverines are the ones pictured always in designer dress, and inevitably they are portrayed as successful testaments to precocity, impetuosity, inherent skills and gifts granted by a generous god.Their images, surely, reside at opposite poles, yet viewing these teams only through that popular prism is the sheerest kind of folly.

Bernie Mac, who died in August, was a born movie star who only occasionally got the roles to make him shine brilliantly on the big screen, the way he did on the concert stage and on TV. In Mr. 3000, his depiction of a baseball player as a corrupted man-child was as moving as it was funny, and in Guess Who, he proved that he could express fiery emotions such as parental possessiveness with little more than a squint. He scores again in the ragged Soul Men, this time by sheer force of talent.

Palm Beach, Florida. - Back when I was at the threshold of womanhood, menstruation was one thing you didn't talk about much, simply because that's the way things were. But if you were bold enough, and hip enough, and grown-up enough, you confided it to your best friend -- in a hoarse whisper, through pursed lips, with eyes rolled skyward. And then you were ironic about it: You called it ''my friend.''''Kotex'' could elicit embarrassed giggles from girls already prone to hilarity. That word alone was taboo in some circles.

IT HASN'T BEEN easy going through life with a built-in nickname, but when the Seattle Mariners arrived in town, I thought I finally had found someone else who could feel my pain. The Mariners have a relief pitcher named J.J. Putz, a young right-hander who I was sure would be able to identify with my lifelong struggle to order a pizza over the phone. No such luck. J.J. claims his surname is pronounced with a slightly longer "u" - so that it sounds more like "puts" than "putts." That's his story, and he's sticking to it. "He's in denial," said Orioles play-by-play man Joe Angel.

In his search for a soul mate, Lincoln Farnum didn't frequent traditional singles hangouts like coffee shops, bars and bookstores. Instead, he turned to the territory he knows best: cyberspace. A self-professed Internet addict, Lincoln posted a personal ad on a dating Web site called Love.com. To post the ad, he had to provide some basic information. Age? 50. Hometown? Bethesda. Occupation? Com-puter programmer at the National Institutes of Health. It was easy going until he reached the final question: What celebrity do you most resemble?

Charlene L. Gross and Charles H. Johnson always felt that when the time was right, their soul mate would come along. Like many romantics, they believe that when you meet the right person, you will feel so comfortable that you will know -- without doubt -- that this is the person you have been waiting for your entire life. What happens when Mr. or Ms. Right doesn't come along? According to Charlene and Charles, you get on with your life, and you wait. Charles, 42, a licensed Merchant Marine ship's captain, spent much of his career at sea. He moved to Baltimore in 1994 to take a position with Ellicott Machine Corporation International.

Dear Mrs. Badger, I hope you and your loved ones all have a safe and wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. You sent me a card like this one last year. I'm also enclosing a photo of myself. It makes me look fat. Remember, Jesus loves you and so do I. Love, Billy Kreutzer Billy Kreutzer, it should be known, is not just a friend to Diane Badger, not just a "soul mate," as he has said, not just a person sending warm wishes and reminders of the love of Jesus. William J. Kreutzer Jr., 31, of the Maryland town of Clinton, is also a convicted murderer who could become the first serviceman to be executed in the United States since 1961.
