I was delighted to read that the new pope chose for himself the name of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals ("Pope Francis' calling," March 15). Both Catholic and Anglican churches hold ceremonies blessing animals on his feast day Oct. 4. On one of his walks through nature, Francis reportedly preached to the birds, and he is often portrayed with a bird in his hand. On another occasion, Francis concluded a pact with a ferocious wolf that was terrorizing local town folk.

Next week, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey will return to Baltimore with Fully Charged!, the 141st edition of The Greatest Show On Earth. Everyone at Ringling Bros. takes great pride in presenting quality family entertainment to audiences in Baltimore and across the country. Unfortunately, animal rights groups such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have used our return to continue their radical agenda by distorting our dedication to animal care and welfare. It's time we set the record straight.

THOUGHTS for the day:"Inequality exists. So do discrimination and sexism. A true power feminism would urge women to stand their ground and fight against the individuals who commit these offenses. A truly new feminism would recognize an old truth: the man who does not take his female co-worker seriously because of her sex is a jerk, not a part of systematic oppression of women by the 'opposition.' "-- Karina Rollins in The Public Interest, Summer 1994.* * *FILM and TV superstar Mary Tyler Moore is so disgusted by fur that she shipped her sable coat and hat to PETA [People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals]

An off-duty state trooper who ran into a burning barn in Bel Air last week to help a farmer save his cattle has been recognized by an animal-rights organization. Cpl. James Joseph Kozlowski III was driving past Broom's Bloom Dairy on Dec. 19 when he noticed the barn was on fire and pulled over to help. Nearly 50 cows were saved, but Kozlowski was struck by falling debris and knocked unconscious. He was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center for treatment and has since been released. He has yet to return to duty, a state police spokesman said.

Nor was Mr. Perdue."Idiots are idiots, and that's all," the 71-year-old Eastern Shore poultry magnate said of the animal-rights activists who staged yesterday's guerrilla theater and wound up in jail."I did it in protest for the millions of chickens Frank Perdue killed," said the pie-wielding chicken, Jennifer Woods of Gaithersburg, in handcuffs after leading police officers on a 10-minute chase around the University of Baltimore campus.

The people who think you shouldn't eat animals were trying to tell anyone who would listen outside Memorial Stadium last night that a wiener made of soybean is a fabulous thing.Here, in a city with a once-grand history of slaughterhouses and a neighborhood still proud to call itself Pigtown, they arrived two hours before game time to bring down those who are high on the hog, to lay siege to that venerable culinary institution -- the ballpark frank. "Tastes just like a real hot dog!" was the mantra of Jenny Woods, an employee with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, as she stood on the parking lot across from the stadium near a sign that asked,"Guess what's in a hot dog?"

This might be hard for you to remember with everything that's going on these days, but there was a time when the Preakness was just a famous horse race that drew thousands of revelers to Pimlico and set one Saturday aside each year for Baltimore to be the center of the sporting universe. It was a day for sun dresses and pretty hats and ice-cold black-eyed Susans ... and the only day of the year when a Roland Park swell in $300 shoes might seek out some ragged-looking soul in a faded fedora and ask, "Whaddaya think?"

The cows are organized, and they're coming for us. This was bound to happen. These gentle, docile creatures have provided us with milk and beef for so long, never asking anything in return. Those days are over. The cow uprising is near. Like any group of aggrieved workers, they now have a Web site, BovineUnite.com, advertised on billboards that have cropped up across Maryland. The site features an alarming video of cows pumping iron and a manifesto worthy of Patrick Henry. "Every day, the humans chase us with horses, rope us and milk us for all we're worth," the site declares.

Of all the reasons to visit New Zealand, killing a red stag wasn't on my list. But that's what got me to the Southern Hemisphere. My brother Kevin has been an outdoorsman for most of his 47 years and wanted to bag a trophy deer with Shane Quinn's Alpine Hunting Adventures on the North Island. All I needed was an excuse to see that part of the world, so I asked him if I could tag along as a nonhunting guest. "But you don't like dead animals," Kevin said over the phone from his home in Colorado.

Paul McCartney, the activist?The former Beatle pauses, as if trying the once unlikely image on for size during an interview moments before the start of his first U.S. concert tour since 1990.For years, the late John Lennon was the former Beatle most associated with social activism.Paul was always the cute Beatle, the romantic Beatle, the conciliatory Beatle -- and the image stuck as he evolved in the '70s from rock-and-roller to family man.Rather quietly and dramatically, however, Mr. McCartney and his wife, Linda, have become outspoken advocates in recent years for environmental issues.

A Johns Hopkins University affiliate will provide $100,000 for research into a rarely studied issue: how to measure and alleviate pain and distress suffered by mice and rats used in biomedical experiments. "We're not going to be able to eliminate all animal research," said Alan M. Goldberg, director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing. "We want to do as much as possible to minimize pain and distress." Some of the new research will result in pain and death for the mice being studied.
