IN JEFF McNelly's "Shoe" comic strip, the central bird-newspaperman is a duffer who sits day after day at a rolltop desk half-hidden under a snowdrift of print matter. He cannot bring himself to throw anything out.The tradition carries over onto other newspapers. Mary Knudsen, a recent Sun alumna, was famous for her clutter; so also Carl Schoettler of The Evening Sun (now of The Sun), and old alum Jim Bready, the back-issue saver of the editorial department. The messy-desk legend still enfolds Judy Bachrach -- her specialty was the permanently pulled-out drawer, from which yet another mound arose.

Severn senior forward Leanne Hug, expected back early this week after missing two weeks with an ankle injury, will be a welcome sight as the Admirals prepare for the stretch run in defending their Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference crown. The Admirals (13-3, 6-2 in the league before Friday's game against Mount de Sales) have held their own in Hug's absence with different players taking turns stepping up. In Tuesday's 54-38 victory over St. Vincent Pallotti, the team got 14 points from junior guard Leah Cranmer and 10 rebounds and three blocks from senior center Caitlin Sheehan.

These are boom times for Walt Whitman, America's most famous poet.A century after his death, Whitman, the poet of democracy, the poet of the body and soul, commands a loyal and expansive following from his birthplace on New York's Long Island to the literary circles of China.His rough, rigorous, unrhymed verse, informal and impassioned, appeals to both genders, all ages and numerous nationalities."Whitman is the poet of liberty, of individual freedom," said Carol Muske-Dukes, a poet and creative writing professor at the University of Southern California.

The music of Paul Hindemith gets little attention in our time. This despite the fact that the German-born composer, who spent many years in the U.S. after the rise of the Third Reich, once was widely recognized as an important and influential figure. All the more reason, then, to take note of this week's National Symphony Orchestra program, which offers an especially rare performance of "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd," conducted by Christoph Eschenbach. Baritone Matthias Goerne, mezzo Michelle DeYoung and the Choral Arts Society of Washington will be featured.

Tom Gugliotta, the Washington Bullets' No. 1 draft pick, can empathize with Billy Hoyle, the troubled hero of the popular movie, "White Men Can't Jump."Gugliotta remembers when he was 16, a gangly 6 feet 2, 170 pounds, trying to achieve his first slam dunk on a 9-foot basket at a junior high playground near his hometown of Huntington Station, N.Y."We shoveled the snow off the court and took turns trying tdunk the ball the same way Billy Hoyle does in the movie," the All-Atlantic Coast Conference forward from North Carolina State recalled yesterday on being introduced to the local media.

The audience for "Road Scholar," which opens today at th Rotunda, certainly should include readers of The Sun. That's because this is the first movie ever about a Sun writer, if you discount Meg Ryan in "Sleepless in Seattle," and Kevin Bacon and Elizabeth Perkins in "HeSaid, She Said."Not only that: Our boy actually appears on camera most of the time. He gets to ride a big red convertible and shoot machine guns! Yes: it's "Lethal Weapon IV" with Dan Rodricks in the Mel Gibson role!Oh, forgive my little joke there, folks.
