Early Friday in a small, brightly lit operating room in Johns Hopkins Hospital, a half-dozen doctors and nurses huddled over the gut of a cancer patient, quietly passing metal instruments and surgical sutures. After more than four hours of cutting and sewing, the lead surgeon, Dr. John L. Cameron, lifted his slightly bloodied hands, thanked his colleagues and headed for the door. The 75-year-old immediately declared the complex, life-saving surgery "one of the simpler ones. " He should know.

Guys keep trying to come up with ever-more-memorable ways to propose marriage, and sometimes that becomes a problem. They pop the question in hot-air balloons at sunset or while riding giant roller coasters, which I never understood. Do you want to marry the woman or have her hurl in your lap? Or they rent highway billboards to propose, or do it via stadium Jumbotron screens or banners towed by planes at the beach. I heard of a guy who proposed to his girlfriend at a Phillips restaurant in Ocean City a few summers ago. OK, that sounds romantic enough, if a little tame.

COLLEGE PARK -- Andrew Whipple rolls to his right before zipping a pass inside to Matt Hahn. Two hard hits and a shoulder fake later, Hahn blasts a 5-yard shot into the goal.Quick, efficient and, basically, common.It's one of the best scoring combinations in Maryland history and the major reason the Terrapins are scoring 15 goals a game, the highest total after six games in 11 years. Maryland will rely on this attack duo tomorrow when the No. 2 Terps play host to No. 5 Virginia.And it's a simple equation: Whipple feeds the ball and Hahn finishes it."

Fred Lawrence Whipple, 97, the last surviving giant of 20th-century astronomy and the man who answered the age-old question, "What is a comet?" died Monday at a hospital in Cambridge, Mass. Before Dr. Whipple began his research, comets were mysterious objects whose origin and composition were unknown. Most people thought that they were piles of sand and rock held together by gravity. He postulated, correctly, that comets were simply large masses of ice and rock. He called them "icy conglomerates," but the term "dirty snowball" soon captured the public's imagination.

GAITHERSBURG -- On a recent Saturday afternoon, Marcus and Imal Wagner stood in a U-Haul storage warehouse, surrounded by their castoff possessions: a papier-mache candy dish, LPs by Cream and the Ventures, a computer printer, a ceramic figurine of a gnome atop a turtle and 25-gallon tubs filled with old files and five years' worth of paperwork. Imal Wagner, a 56-year-old book publicist, spotted a van tire wedged amid the jumble and gave her husband a knowing look. "I didn't want to throw it away, so I brought it here," Marcus Wagner, 53, said, a little defensively.

The surgeon is hunched over an unconscious patient, his eyes focused on the deep recess of an open abdomen. It has been more than six hours since this difficult operation started at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Two anesthesiologists have traded off to give each other breaks. The nurses have changed shifts. But Dr. John Cameron has rarely looked up. He is determined to miss nothing, and at 2:31 p.m., he sees something he doesn't like. The young surgeon he is training is poised to sew a single stitch - one of hundreds in this operation - into tissue from which it could break loose.

Most people remember Mikey. He's that freckle-faced 4-year-old who never uttered a word - just shoveled huge spoonfuls of Life cereal into his mouth as his two older brothers watched in amazement. For 12 years, he appeared on television - winning the hearts of Americans so that, even now, 80 percent remember the commercial, and most can even name the cereal it promoted. The popularity of the advertisement, which aired from 1972 to 1984, earned it No. 10 ranking among TV Guide's 50 greatest commercials.

Although many anticipate tomorrow's Maryland-Johns Hopkins game to be an on-the-field cage match, the action should mainly revolve around the cage. When the Terrapins play host to the Blue Jays, two of the top goalkeepers in the nation will be showcased.In the Blue Jays' 10-6 win over the Terps on April 11, Hopkins' Brian Carcaterra and Maryland's Kevin Healy both stepped to the forefront and at times controlled play. And this is only the beginning of this goalie rivalry since both are just sophomores.
