Jordan Williams remained seated in the bleachers Friday night during the Charm City Challenge's dunk contest. For this night, at least, the backboards were safe. Williams, a 6-foot-10 power forward headed to Maryland in the fall, might be best known for following a teammate's missed shot during a high school game and dunking the ball so forcefully that the backboard shattered. His mother, Dee Williams, said her first thought was: "Do we have to pay for that?" The play became a YouTube favorite and instantly enhanced the reputation of the player the Terrapins hope will provide some much-needed inside presence.

Eugene Fodor, 85, whose travel guides have been carried by tourists to the far corners of the world for more than half a century, died of a brain tumor last night at the Charlotte Hungerford Hospital in Torrington, Conn. He lived in Litchfield, Conn. Mr. Fodor's approach to travel writing was set forth in his first book, "1936 . . . On the Continent," a guide to Europe for British travelers that he published in London. The joy of travel, he wrote, should not be derived solely from seeing "the sights," but from mingling with "peoples whose customs, habits and general outlook are different from your own."
