By all appearances, David W. Dorman would have to do something shocking to avoid becoming AT&T Corp.'s next chief executive. That became clear yesterday as AT&T named Dor- man, the company's president, to the board. It has been clear for at least a year that Dorman was the favorite to become the chief executive once the company sold or spun off its cable television operation. With yesterday's announcement, the favorite became all but a shoo-in. AT&T also announced that Charles H. Noski, the company's chief financial officer, had joined the board as vice chairman.

Only recently, with the controversy over the proposed demolition of the Read's drugstore at Howard and Lexington, are we beginning to take note of Baltimore's important and early role in the civil rights movement. A few weeks ago, a copy of a new book, "Round and Round Together," arrived with much to say. Its title refers to Gwynn Oak's merry-go-round, which the author treats as a kind of centerpiece and metaphor for the local movement of the 1950s and 1960s. I later spoke with the author, Amy Singewald Nathan, a Baltimorean from Hunting Ridge who had just graduated Western High School during the summer of 1963, when Gwynn Oak was the subject of national attention.
