HIGH TREASON 2. Harrison E. Livingstone. Carroll & Graf. 420 pages. $22.95. The principal problem with "High Treason 2" is the difficulty the reader has trying to make out its thesis. In his latest book on the JFK assassination, Baltimore resident Harrison Livingstone takes for granted a high-level government conspiracy. Various motives for the murder, including escalation in Vietnam, are tacked on at the beginning and end for context. The meat of this book, however, revolves around what happened -- or did not happen -- to President Kennedy's body after the shots rang out in Dallas.

Cape Mold-Zern will face a panel of Boys' Latin School faculty members today when he defends his thesis on dark matter in the universe. If he is successful, he will be the only member of his graduating class of 61 to be awarded an honors diploma with distinction from the all-boys school in North Baltimore. When he decided to do the yearlong senior thesis project, Mold-Zern, a 19-year-old Towson resident, was more interested in creating his own course of study. "I took on the project as a challenge so I could study what I wanted," he said.

"Mickey One," this week's oddly riveting revival choice at the Charles, carries the name of a production company, Tatira, that would never be credited again. It was a company that the movie's star, Warren Beatty, set up for this one movie. He named it for his mother, Kathlyn, nicknamed Tat, and his father, Ira Beaty (just one t). They brought their kids up in Virginia. But they actually met in Lutherville. Yes, the same suburb that gave us John Waters can also claim some ownership of Warren Beatty.

When I first heard about the show "Wasteland," I thought, "Hey, that's interesting. They're bringing T.S. Eliot to prime time."Not exactly, old boy."Wasteland" is ABC trying to bring a slightly older, urban version of "Dawson's Creek" to viewers in their 20s, hoping to get them to switch over from NBC after "Friends" and "Jesse." It could happen, if viewers in their 20s are willing to ditch "Frasier" for a set of self-absorbed, kind of whiny characters their own age who make more references to their "generation" than F. Scott Fitzgerald did to his."

SOME FOLKS need to learn a lesson about getting the last laugh. Those students in Coppin State College's criminal justice program who sneered at Joycelyn Evans for doing a thesis had better think about that. Here's a brief recap of the Coppin controversy: In March, 14 students in Coppin's graduate criminal justice program filed a lawsuit alleging that the faculty had ill-prepared them for the comprehensive final exams and seminar papers required for graduation. Evans chose to do a longer 40- to 50-page thesis instead of taking the final exams and preparing a shorter seminar paper.

A criminal justice professor at Coppin State College denied allegations yesterday that he rejected the thesis topic proposed by one of his graduate students, insisting he "would not censor academic freedom." The allegations emerged amid a dispute last week over Coppin's criminal justice program and whether some master's degree candidates would be permitted to graduate today without meeting what some faculty insist are degree requirements. Four graduate students who wrote research papers deemed unacceptable by department Chairperson Concetta Culliver are expected to receive their master's degrees, but others who failed comprehensive exams will not be allowed to graduate, according to Coppin officials.
