After Jon Spelman got the bad news, he found himself thinking often and at odd moments about "Moby-Dick. " Perhaps that's because the behemoth that was attacking the Baltimore storyteller was as submerged, unreasoning and unpredictable as any great white whale, and every bit as ferocious. Spelman knew that like Captain Ahab, the anti-hero of Herman Melville's novel, he would have to hunt his hunter. He armed himself not just with doctors and surgery and cancer-fighting drugs, but with wit, bravery and a determination to look straight at his own death - whenever it might come.

When Mary K. Gardner was a high school senior in 1960s Virginia, many African-American women who attended college went to local schools. "I wanted a different kind of experience. ... I had this clear sense and the sound reason to go South," said Gardner, who graduated from Atlanta's Spelman College in 1967. The liberal arts institution was founded in the 1880s and is known as a school for African-American women. "It offered me the kind of well-rounded liberal arts education that I was seeking at the time," she said.

Washington. -- Not since the days of Sen. Joe McCarthy have I seen a more sickening smear job than the one the right-wing media is trying to do on Dr. Johnnetta Cole, the education coordinator of the Clinton transition team.The morbidly right-wing Human Events magazine, the unconscionably reactionary Washington Times, and now columnists Evans and Novak are spewing forth innuendoes that might make foolish Americans think Dr. Cole was or is a communist enemy of her country.This distinguished anthropologist and president of Spelman College in Atlanta is accused of once having ''linkage with the extremist left,'' of ''supporting communist dictatorships and the Soviet-front U.S. Peace Council,'' and of belonging ''to the Havana-sponsored Venceramos Brigade.

Along with their M-16 rifles and canteens, some U.S. combat troops in the Persian Gulf war carried some unusual life-saving gear into battle with them: live chickens and parakeets.The birds were used as an early warning system in case of an Iraqi chemical or biological weapons attack. The birds were said to feel the effects of chemicals quicker than humans, so if the birds became ill or suddenly died, the soldiers were to don their gas masks and protective clothing.John R. Spelman has nothing against chickens, but he thinks he has a better system for alerting troops in such emergencies.

Those of us still addicted to reading have much to choose from, much to pique our interest, stimulate our intellects and arouse our indignation. Here are just a couple of things for us bibliophiles to be thankful for.The April and May editions of Headway magazine, which is fast becoming the leading forum for minority conservative thought. The April issue features the always delightful Walter Williams, a black conservative syndicated columnist who loves tweaking liberal noses.In an exquisite piece lampooning the tendency of all too many Americans to freeload, Williams asks the question no doubt driving taxpayers throughout the country downright loony.

WASHINGTON - The National Zoo, beset by criticism over animal deaths, had its accreditation called into question last week after inspectors reported problems with its buildings, leadership, staff morale and funding. The 114-year-old zoo's application to renew its accreditation has been tabled until it makes the physical improvements and other changes necessary to win the American Zoo and Aquarium Association's unqualified backing. Every five years, the association inspects major U.S. zoos, including the Central Park and Bronx zoos in New York, and zoos and animal parks in most sections of the country.

James Gause, a senior at Calvert Hall, went shopping yesterday for a college business administration program.Gause had a specific goal in mind, but if any of the other 4,000 area high school students attending the black college fair at Festival Hall were less certain, there was plenty of expert guidance available.The day-long college fair featured 46 booths staffed with representatives from schools throughout the United States.The event was sponsored by Maxwell House Coffee, the company owned by conglomerate Phillip Morris, and is the first leg of a caravan of college fairs for black high school students in large urban areas such as Washington, D.C.; Newark; Chicago; and Detroit.
