THE TRAGEDY in Bosnia has impelled many to talk of genocide and others to equate what is happening there to the Holocaust in Nazi Germany. In the current issue of "Daedalus" magazine, Steven Muller, former president of Johns Hopkins, writes as follows:"Anti-Semitism, xenophobia and genocide are anything but unique. What set the Holocaust apart was the unprecedented application of industrial technology and the factory-based manufacturing process to the extermination of several million human beings."

THE highest-paid people in American higher education aren't presidents. They aren't administrators. They aren't business professors and others currently in high demand. They are professors in medical schools.The Chronicle of Higher Education is just out with its annual listing of the salaries earned by presidents and the five highest-paid employees at 25 prestigious private universities in 1988-89. At not one school did a president earn as much as his (or her, in the lone case of Hanna H. Gray of the University of Chicago)

He had to wait a few months and endure a bit of public embarrassment, but William Donald Schaefer -- the former and once powerful two-term governor of Maryland -- finally has landed a nonpaying job as a trustee at a small southern Maryland college.During the summer, Mr. Schaefer was snubbed by his successor, Parris N. Glendening, who refused to appoint him to the Board of Trustees of St. Mary's College. At the time, Mr. Schaefer was rumored to be a possible candidate for his old job as mayor of Baltimore, and Mr. Glendening said he did not want to "politicize" the college board.

THAT GUY on Page 1 of The Evening Sun yesterday, the one with an arm around George and an arm around Barbara? The one looking more like the president of the Omaha Chamber of Commerce than Vladimir Lenin?Is that the same Boris N. Yeltsin who stopped by Johns Hopkins University three years ago on his first U.S. visit and gave a rambling speech after spending the night with a bottle of fine Kentucky sour mash?Then, he wasn't President Yeltsin, statesman. He was Boris Yeltsin, "ardent Soviet populist," according to The Sun. He arrived late at night and apparently spent most of the wee hours imbibing.

The legacy of Raymond Haysbert goes beyond business and politics ("Business and policy leader Raymond V. Haysbert Sr. 1920-2010," May 25). He was also a visionary in higher education and played an important role in an innovative program developed at Johns Hopkins in the 1990s. The Leadership Development Program for Minority Managers (LDP) was designed to attract a cohort of mid-level black professionals who sought a challenging and supportive academic business environment that combined the rich resources of the university and the Baltimore business community.
