There is little doubt more savings and loan institutions will fail before the situation turns around. While the government pumps more of your tax dollars into troubled thrifts, the question you need to think about is: "What happens if my S&L goes under?"Why do they fail? While dishonesty was certainly a factor in the thrift crisis, most institutions fail because the money they earn on their assets (such as the mortgages they issue) does not cover what they must pay on their liabilities (the CDs and passbook accounts belonging to depositors)

ORIOLES vice president for baseball operations Syd Thrift walked onto the field and shook hands. He then went behind the batting cage and mingled with Orioles coaches and Boston Red Sox coaches. He was pleasant, and at times extremely upbeat. There wasn't any nervousness in his voice, and no stress in his face. If Thrift was a man about to be fired, he didn't sound like it yesterday. With Thrift, now in his eighth season in the same capacity with the team, there are always rumors about him getting fired.

FEW WANT TO salute Syd Thrift because he has been criticized for so long. But he deserves some props. Go ahead, raise your champagne glass and give him a little toast. So far, the Orioles are a lot better than most of us thought they'd be. Instead of watching another rerun of Gilligan's Island or waiting for the Ravens' training camp to open in late July, there is some renewed interest in Syd's Baby Birds. Fans shouldn't get delirious and expect a championship, but at least some prospects are starting to emerge on the roster.
