As excitement mounts for the oncoming college basketball season, beginning with Midnight Madness at 12:01 tomorrow at College Park, it's a good time to reflect on a man who helped lay the groundwork for some of this.He's Frank McGuire, who died Tuesday at 80.McGuire probably did more than anyone to popularize basketball in the Atlantic Coast Conference. For a number of years now, there has been no greater basketball conference in the country, no bigger hotbed for the sport than the ACC, in which the University of Maryland plays.

The leaves on my rose have yellow "worm-track" holes. (The leaves are not eaten away.) I live close to the Patapsco River, so I'd rather not use anything too strong. Rose slugs are the larvae of a wasplike sawfly. Their larvae are about 1/2 -inch long, yellow-green, and blend in perfectly with rose foliage. The larvae skeletonize leaves by etching off the upper surface between the veins. With heavy infestations, defoliation may occur and a summer rate of horticultural oil can be used. My tomato leaves began wilting, though well watered.

Malena Wilt had just finished her second day of work at the Frederick Road High's store when a masked man with a gun walked up to her - the first scare in what would become a night of terror. Over the next six hours, the 21-year-old Wilt and her 19-year-old co-worker were raped repeatedly, threatened and forced to lie in the store's bathroom. Not once during that night did the store's alarm system function properly, or alert the police that - for the fourth time in a year - a robbery was taking place, according to a $2 million lawsuit Wilt filed yesterday in Baltimore County Circuit Court against the store's supervisor and the security company.
