When Philadelphia's Melton Bowen walked into the ring at Trump Plaza last night, he didn't wear a robe. He wore black boxing trunks and black boxing shoes, without socks. Remind you of anyone? How about Mike Tyson, who knocked Carl "The Truth" Williams out in the first round in this city a year and three days ago? Unlike the former world heavyweight champion, though, Bowen did not knock Williams out in the first round. In fact, he didn't knock Williams out at all, and Williams retained his United States Boxing Association heavyweight title with a technical knockout in the fifth round.

Challenging President Reagan's view that the government is winning the war on illegal drug use, Health and Human Services Secretary Otis R. Bowen has told the President and his key aides that he cannot "honestly be very optimistic about the war on drugs. " Bowen's remarks, made Thursday at the White House during the inaugural meeting of the President's new National Drug Policy Board, were released by the Department of Health and Human Services yesterday after presidential press secretary Marlin Fitzwater had issued an upbeat statement about the meeting.

Some participants of the International Conference on AIDS hissed and heckled Health and Human Services Secretary Otis R. Bowen yesterday as he described the government's response to AIDS. Bowen was also heckled when, during his speech at the closing session of the five-day meeting, he called patients suffering from the fatal disease "victims. " The strongest outburst came after Bowen praised President Reagan for his role in combating acquired immune deficiency syndrome. At the opening session on Monday, some participants booed Vice President Bush when he embraced Reagan's proposals for broader AIDS testing.

INDIANAPOLIS - Former U.S. Health and Human Service Secretary Otis R. Bowen has died. He was 95. Bowen helped promote safe sex practices in the early years of the AIDS crisis as the top federal health official under President Ronald Reagan. He also served two terms as Indiana's governor, overhauling the state's tax system. Gov. Mike Pence said Bowen died Saturday. Pence didn't disclose the cause of death. Before his rise to become a wildly popular Republican governor from 1973-1981 in Indiana, Bowen was a small-town doctor.

In a surprising move, a commencement speaker at Haverford College on Sunday used the celebratory occasion to deliver a sharp rebuke to students who had mounted a campaign against another speaker who had been scheduled to appear but withdrew amid the controversy. William G. Bowen, former president of Princeton and a nationally respected higher education leader, called the student protestors' approach both "immature" and "arrogant" and the subsequent withdrawal of Robert J. Birgeneau, former chancellor of the University of California Berkeley, a "defeat" for the Quaker college and its ideals.

Amid the memories of Harold O. Bowen, a 91-year-old resident of Pemberton Borough, are those of the horses he rode at Camp Dix, the baseballs he hit in a long career in the minor leagues, and the shots - especially the shots - that felled an American president. At the time of the assassination, Bowen was 6 years old and visiting the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, N.Y., where he was born. It was "Boys' Day," Sept. 6, 1901. Youngsters lined up, one by one, to receive pats on the head from President William McKinley.

The cabinet officer responsible for health care indicated yesterday that he has been excluded from final decisions by the Reagan administration on a health insurance plan for catastrophic illnesses. Health and Human Services Secretary Otis R. Bowen told a Senate committee that he was not involved in drafting an administration proposal for such insurance, though he spent nine months studying the issue at President Reagan's request. Bowen said he did not know details of the proposed legislation that Reagan mentioned in his State of the Union speech Tuesday night.

Health and Human Services Secretary Otis R. Bowen yesterday agreed to investigate whether the federal government, in concert with private medical insurance companies, could provide health insurance that would cover catastrophic illnesses for all Americans, not just elderly people on Medicare. During his recent State of the Union address to Congress, President Reagan asked Bowen to see if HHS could develop a plan to make sure that care for catastrophic illnesses does not wipe out the life savings of the elderly and others whose private insurance policies do not cover such costs.

IT'S NEVER a good idea to hang out in a police department's parking lot if you have outstanding arrest warrants. Or, say, half a joint sitting on your car's dashboard. Three people learned that lesson the hard way Wednesday, when Cherry Hill officers, checking on suspicious vehicles in their own lot on Mercer Street, found two wanted people in one car and the marijuana in another car. Just before noon, officers checking out a suspicious car parked in the Police Administration Building's lot discovered that two of the four occupants had outstanding arrest warrants.

THE CARDINALS looked a bit sluggish and self-satisfied in their 23-20 victory over Minnesota on Dec. 10, but having last weekend off ought to have restored their fire. They have won seven in a row, and they've also won their last four road games. They've scored more points in road games (222) than any other team in the league. The Eagles won at New England a couple of weeks ago, and if you can do that, theoretically you can do anything, but they just might need a couple of special-teams touchdowns and a pick-six, as they had against the Pats, to stay close to the Cards.

THE PICK This will be the Eagles' biggest win of the season, if they can pull it off, and I think they can. Seattle, after scuffling a little there for a while, is healthier now, and back to being really, really good. But the Seahawks are 3-3 on the road, 2-2 outside their time zone. And as good as Marshawn Lynch is, the run is what the Eagles' defense does best. Even without DeMeco Ryans, they would much rather you run at them than go deep against Bradley Fletcher and Cary Williams all day. I'll be surprised if Seattle churns out a whole bunch of points.

WHEN ALMETA Scott Bowen cooked, she always included what she believed to be the most important ingredient: love. That undoubtedly was why the meals that emanated from her kitchen always tasted so good. She put a dollop of love in every dish, because Almeta not only loved to cook, she loved the people who sat down at her table, her extended family, friends and neighbors. They got a spiritual jolt with every course. The fact that she lived to 104 was a gift from God, she felt.

LIKE MANY basketball fans his age, 76ers rookie K.J. McDaniels grew up watching the San Antonio Spurs flirt with dominance in the NBA year in and year out. The 21-year-old admired the obvious stars, such as David Robinson, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. He probably focused a little less on the team's defensive stopper and surely never paid much attention to the wild-eyed, hyper assistant coach. But Bruce Bowen and Brett Brown probably will figure prominently in the career of Daniels, whom the Sixers selected in June with the 32nd overall pick.

The Rev. Joseph D. Bowen, 83, pastor emeritus at Our Lady Help of Christians Parish in Abington, died of a heart attack Sunday, Nov. 17, at St. Mary Manor in Lansdale. In September 1989, he was appointed the church's pastor and served 16 years before becoming pastor emeritus in June 2005. During his tenure, he worked to build an addition to the parish elementary school, and when finished, it was named in his honor. "He enjoyed interacting with his flock," said his brother, Paul. Father Bowen had planned to help out at the church in retirement, but a stroke in 2004 made that impossible.
