Thomas Gatley had a funny feeling about backing his 1952 Bentley into the parking lot of the Barn Cinema on Route 611 in Doylestown Township. The classic brown and cream car with the chrome-plated brass radiator cap was parked in the first row, its impressive front facing the lot. So Gatley turned the car around to face the street. Big mistake. After Gatley, his wife and friends returned from seeing Father of the Bride on Dec. 28, his wife noticed as they drove away that the $400 radiator cap was missing.

The builder of Bentley, a 54-house subdivision under construction on a tract cut from Forest Hills Cemetery, has been warned that he is proceeding at his own risk, city officials said yesterday. David McCarron, the district supervisor for the city Department of Licenses and Inspections, said developer Fredavid Greenberg had been put on notice that work on 35 lots "is strictly a gamble. " Any work done before the city Water Department has an opportunity to review the new plans for the subdivision, according to McCarron, "is clearly at the builder's risk.

Bentley is back home, happily gnawing on his toy rabbit, and all of Spartanburg, S.C., is breathing sighs of relief. "As soon as I saw him start chewing on his rabbit, I knew he was all right," said Sheila Hawkins, owner of the 5-year-old miniature Yorkshire terrier who was briefly the star of local TV and the press. And the varmints who allegedly made off with the little tyke are in trouble with the law. The case had some of the trappings of a crime thriller. There were desperate phone calls; a nighttime drop at a gas station, and finally, the police closing in to capture the suspects.

In 1949 Philadelphia, everyone knew about James A. Bentley. He was the son of a paper broker from a socially prominent family, and his engagement and marriage were reported in society columns. He was also the notorious "man in the gray business suit" who a witness said had knocked over a frail elderly man at a wedding reception at the Union League. A coroner said the accident had caused the man's death. It was a bizarre story, and one that received the rapt attention of all three Philadelphia newspapers, which reported every fact or gossip item in dozens of stories between the beginning of February and the end of May in 1949.

Hillebrand, Kensington's treasurer between 1979 and 1985, pleaded guilty earlier to embezzlement and tax fraud charges.

The question was not whether Thaddeus Erby Watley - with diamonds adorning his wrists and pinky fingers and his sleek black Bentley parked outside - could afford the $107,600 restitution the Gloucester County judge ordered the fight promoter to pay yesterday. Watley, dressed in different shades of green - including a dollar-bill- green polo shirt - wanted to make sure that if he paid the restitution in full before the April 1995 deadline, his four years' probation also would end. That was the deal, Superior Court Judge Donald Smith Jr. told Watley, who pleaded guilty in May to bilking a California computer company that invested in a boxing match and a religious revival Watley had planned for Monroe Township that never happened.

Lisa A. Bentley, who is white, was found not guilty yesterday in Camden County Superior Court of ordering her dog, Old Yeller, to attack Edward Muse because Muse is black. A predominantly white jury of nine women and three men, who had listened to four days of testimony, presented their verdict to Judge Norman Telsey at 4 p.m. after deliberating for six hours. When the forewoman replied "not guilty" to the final of four counts being read by a courtroom officer, Bentley, 35, the mother of five, sobbed quietly and hugged her attorney, Michael J. Milstead.

A white resident who lost her job as a school crossing guard when she was accused of ordering her dog to bite a black man is suing the city, its police and the county prosecutor, her lawyer said yesterday. The woman, Lisa A. Bentley, 35, was found not guilty two weeks ago of all charges in the ethnic-intimidation case tried in Camden County Superior Court. Had she been convicted, she could have been sentenced to 10 years in jail. But the jury concluded after six hours of deliberation that Bentley did not order her dog, Old Yeller, to attack Edward Muse, 37, because Muse is black.

Denny Bentley is confident in his defense, and no one can blame him. The lefthander tossed a four-hitter in Williamstown's 5-1 win over Old Bridge in the Group 4 state semifinals at Rowan University. Bentley improved to 10-0. "The defense played great," Bentley said. "They do great every game. They always help me out a lot. " This game was no different, as Bentley put the ball in play often for the Braves. He induced seven groundouts and nine flyouts. The defense handled them well, with only one error.

Despite donning the tools of ignorance for seven innings on a warm afternoon, Ross Micka figured he had a pretty easy job Thursday. "Catch the ball and throw it back," Micka, Williamstown's senior catcher, said of his workload during a Tri-County Conference Royal Division showdown with rival Kingsway. Micka and the rest of the Braves could rest easy because Denny Bentley was on the mound. Bentley, a junior left-hander, pitched a one-hitter with seven strikeouts as Williamstown took a big step toward clinching the division title with a 7-1 victory on the Braves' home field.

George Bernard Shaw stuffed enough big ideas, quotable lines, interesting characters, and surprising plot turns into Misalliance to furnish half a dozen contemporary plays. Currently playing at the Walnut Street Theatre's Studio 5, the Idiopathic Ridiculopathy Consortium's enjoyable production features a large, lively cast on a too-small stage. This comedy of ideas concerns many misalliances: people engaged to marry the wrong people, parents and their adult children misunderstanding each other, the wrongheaded government and its beleaguered citizens, the smart moneymakers and the aristocratic money-inheritors, and one of Shaw's favorite themes: the old-fashioned woman and the "new woman.

Denny Bentley has exceeded his coach's expectations. But his coach kind of expected that. "I don't know if that makes sense, but we saw it," Williamstown coach Jim Ambrosius said of the development of his sophomore pitcher. "He's surpassed what we thought he would do. But I kind of thought he would. " Bentley has confounded hitters as well as his coach. A lefthander with a live fastball, a sharp curveball, and a change-up that stops traffic, he is 4-1 after Thursday's masterpiece against Kingsway.

Suppose a couple of big-dreaming thieves boosted a flaming yellow Lamborghini and a spit-polished black Bentley from an underground garage at an apartment complex on the edge of Mount Airy. What to do next? Apparently, not very much. The market for stolen ultra-luxe wheels is extremely limited. And even with some long-shot resale plan in mind, there was almost no chance of getting away unnoticed. In this modest, tree-lined neighborhood, the streets are fairly deserted at night.
