What makes an artist assemble 193,000 toothpicks?" Pete Hilsee, spokesman for the American Visionary Art Museum, mused the other day. The Baltimore museum boasts a 16-foot scale model of the ocean liner Lusitania made with something the uninspired masses use to pry poppy seeds from teeth. Hilsee invoked that piece as he was pondering another, featuring child-like choo-choo crayon drawings with mathematical calculations on the bottom. Is it art? Is it mental illness? Either way, it's the latest exhibit at the museum of "self-taught and intuitive artistry.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Calling the rules violations "some of the worst that have ever occurred," the NCAA Committee on Infractions said yesterday that it seriously considered imposing the "death penalty" on the football program at the University of Alabama. While the NCAA did not completely shut down Alabama's program, as it did to SMU in 1987, it did bring the hammer down hard. Alabama's penalties included a five-year probation, a two-year ban on postseason bowls and the loss of 21 scholarships during the next three years.

He was once imperial wizard of United Klans of America Inc., considered the largest Klan faction in its heyday. He traveled the South in cars and planes speaking to white supremacist groups. He briefly went to federal prison in 1969 for refusing to release Klan membership rolls to the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
