Levi H."Lee" Manchester, a retired Western Electric Corp. division chief, died of cancer at Gilchrist Hospice Care on Aug. 11. The former West Towson resident was 91. Mr. Manchester was born and raised in Tiverton, R.I., and graduated from B.M.C. Durfee High School in 1935. He was an apprentice machine and tool and die maker at General Electric Co.'s Providence Base Works plant in Rhode Island. In 1941, he moved to Baltimore and took a job with the old Glenn L. Martin Co. plant in Middle River, and then joined Western Electric working on radar and other high-tech equipment at the company's former Point Breeze Works in Southeast Baltimore.

In two surprising developments yesterday, the Maryland Bays announced they would play four of 11 home games at RFK Stadium and compete in the Western Division of the American Professional Soccer League this season.Bays president and general manager John Liparini had said last fall that his team would play all its home games at Cedar Lane Park in Columbia as long as the park was brought up to APSL standards.Those standards supposedly have been met with the addition of 1,500 seats to bring the capacity to 4,000.

On the field, Sagu, the team's new goalie, whistled as Denison Cabral beat him cleanly with a huge shot to the far post. "I love it here," said Sagu, who arrived via trade this fall, following the departure of the Dallas Sidekicks from league play. "Baltimore has the best forwards in the league and great defenders like [Danny]

So much for the appetizers. Starting last night, the Baltimore CFLs were chewing on the meat of their schedule. In a seven-week stretch, they play five games against Western Division teams.Sacramento was the first of two in a row against the West. Next Sunday, the CFLs play the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Regina, the previous coaching job of Baltimore's Don Matthews. The Roughriders are 5-0 at home this year.It is perhaps no coincidence that 10 of Baltimore's 12 CFL veterans have played with Western Division teams.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Less Browne, B.C.'s veteran cornerback, will be playing in his fifth Grey Cup on Sunday. Two weeks ago, he thought his career was finished.Browne, who is retiring after the season, tore cartilage in his left knee during B.C.'s 24-23 win at Edmonton in the Western Division semifinals. He didn't expect to return, but after spending some time in an oxygen chamber -- a popular method of treatment in B.C. -- he noticed improvement in the knee and was able to play the next week in Calgary.

ANSWER: A truly global phenomenon. QUESTION: What are game shows? Ding! The United States may have originated such heavy-hitters as "The Price is Right" and "Wheel of Fortune," but societies around the world are crazy for contests of knowledge, skill, strength and, of course, luck. Ohio University journalism professor Anne Cooper-Chen studied game shows in 50 countries for her 1994 book "Games in the Global Village," and found them to be universally accessible forms of entertainment -- requiring only studios, hosts and contestants.

When Bobby Beathard was general manager of a Washington Redskins team that won two Super Bowls in the 1980s, he was dubbed the "smartest man in pro football" by Sports Illustrated.His smartest move was hiring an obscure San Diego assistant named Joe Gibbs as coach in 1981.At the time, the skeptics wondered if the Air Coryell offense -- created by Chargers coach Don Coryell -- would work on a Redskins team with John Riggins.It didn't. The Redskins started Beathard 0-5 in Gibbs' first season before he switched to a one-back offense with Riggins and went to the Super Bowl in his second and third seasons, vindicating Beathard.
