As he stood on the sideline and watched his young basketball team warm up for its first game of the season, Joe Stasyszyn could not help but reflect on his good fortune. Here was Stasyszyn, a girls' assistant coach during the 1987-88 basketball season, preparing to coach his high school alma mater's boys' basketball team. The Carlisle boys' basketball team. The winner of an unprecedented four consecutive PIAA Class AAAA state basketball championships. And the Thundering Herd was playing in the spacious gymnasium at Shippensburg University - his college alma mater.

CARLISLE, Pa. - To the uninitiated observer there is something a little disorienting about being in a room with 300-odd years worth of living military history reenactors, where full-dress French and Indian War militia rub shoulders with World War II German Wehrmacht soldiers, as a World War I British soldier trades tips about where to buy boots with a Russian Army paratrooper. A glance around the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle at Saturday's reenactor recruitment event shows a lot of fresh, young faces wearing uniforms of all types.

Toward the showtime conclusion, more than a few members of the Chester High rooting section began chanting the inevitable: "Bring on Carlisle. " Yet, as far as Clippers coach Alonzo Lewis was concerned after last night's 97-73 win over Chambersburg in the second round of the state Class AAAA playoffs, any thoughts of the three-time defending champions still remain very much on the back burner. At least for a couple more days, anyway. First, the Clippers (27-2) must get past Abington (25-5)

Chester coach Alonzo Lewis didn't have the luxury of enjoying his team's 70-62 victory over Abington in the PIAA Class AAAA state quarterfinals on Saturday for very long. That's the trouble when your team's next opponent is the three-time defending state champion. While his players whooped it up in the background, Lewis talked soberly about tonight's state semifinal game (7:30) against Carlisle (31-0) at the sold-out, 8,000-seat HersheyPark Arena. He talked about the teams' semifinal- round meeting last year, a game won by Carlisle, 66-62.

Don't look now, but two-time defending state champion Carlisle appears primed to make a strong run at another PIAA Class AAAA crown. If the Thundering Herd had not been considered the team to beat before last night, they served official notice with a convincing 69-56 second-round victory over District 1 champ Conestoga at Reading High. Of course, the only reason Carlisle had not been viewed as the favorite all along was simple: three consecutive losses to top-ranked Harrisburg, the most recent being a disheartening nine-point setback two weeks ago in the District 3 title game.

Suffocating defensive pressure did the trick last night as Ridley High was bounced from the PIAA boys' basketball tournament by Carlisle, 62-45, in the Eastern Pennsylvania Class AAAA final before about 5,000 people at the Farm Show Arena. Ridley, a surprise winner over Harrisburg on Tuesday, was unable to sustain the torrid shooting pace it set in the first half. Leading by 29-28 at halftime, Ridley didn't score a second-half basket until midway through the third quarter.

Eric Evans knows his role and isn't hindered by it. The 6-foot-1 junior guard comes off the Chester bench to provide a boost to the Clippers' attack. Last night, Evans helped Chester in another area - offensive rebounding. Evans grabbed only two offensive boards, but his baskets off those rebounds were vital in helping Chester gain a 66-57 second-round PIAA Class AAAA playoff victory over Carlisle in boys' basketball at the Governor Mifflin Intermediate School. Chester (25-4)

After drubbing four-time defending state champion Carlisle, 59-27, in the consolation final of the Carlisle Tournament Saturday night, the Plymouth- Whitemarsh Colonials can be among the first to attest that Carlisle will not make it five titles in a row this season. Not only has the crown jewel of the program - high school All-America Billy Owens - moved on to Syracuse, but none of the first seven players from last year's undefeated powerhouse returned. In fact, not a single player on this year's Carlisle squad had made more than cameo appearances at the varsity level.

Pennsylvania State University's two law school campuses - one at State College and the other in Carlisle - are pursuing plans to operate as separately accredited campuses by 2015. The move comes after opposition from Gov. Corbett and the Cumberland County commissioners to Penn State's original plan to discontinue offering its first-year program at the Carlisle campus and focus there on upper-level classes and international programs, according to Philip J. McConnaughay, dean of the law school.

During the 39 years the Carlisle Indian Industrial School was in existence, 628 students from the Seneca Nation would walk through its gates. Approximately 50 Seneca visitors from the Cattaragus and Allegany Reservations in western New York came recently to walk in their footsteps. And in a location where American Indian students were once not allowed to express their native traditions, the Seneca visitors came to dance. "Our social dancing is to bring positive energy, good feelings," said Sheldon Sundown who organized the dancers.

CARLISLE, Pa. - There's no doubt that Earnest Knocks Off, son of a Sioux chief, lies buried among nearly 200 children in the Indian cemetery here. The question is, where? He seems to have two separate headstones. Other grave markers on the grounds of what was the Carlisle Indian Industrial School, now the Army War College, contain partial or misspelled names, wrong dates of death, and missing birth dates. The supporting paper archive is incomplete. Now, as the Army begins to meet tribal demands to return the remains of boys and girls who died in a harsh, turn-of-the century experiment in forced assimilation, both sides face a dilemma: When century-old records are lacking and even headstones can be unreliable, how to fully account for the dead?

CARLISLE, Pa. - A group of American Indians have come every Memorial Day weekend since 1973 to the cemetery of the old Carlisle Indian Industrial School. A vigil of sorts, they have come over the decades when others lived too far away and others had simply forgotten. They come to honor the students who died while attending school there and to decorate their graves. The practice was originally started by the American Indian Society of Washington, D.C. and carried on the last three years by Circle Legacy.

ROSEBUD, S.D. - Lila Kills In Sight grew up not knowing that she had a relative buried in far-off Pennsylvania, a boy who went away to boarding school and never came back. His loss simply wasn't discussed in her home. Only recently did she learn of her tie to the child who died at the Carlisle Industrial Indian School - news she found as staggering as if she discovered she'd lost a family member in the Holocaust. "Now I have all kinds of questions," Kills In Sight, 45, said during an interview on the Rosebud Sioux reservation in South Dakota.

ISSUE | CARLISLE INDIAN SCHOOL Children who never had a chance My father, Harold E. Parker, attended the Carlisle Indian Industrial School ( "Those kids never got to go home," Sunday). I visited Carlisle several years ago, and my most indelible memory was my visit to the children's cemetery. I counted the headstones in astonishment, but the ones that got to me were the two or three in a line that read "Unknown. " Unknown to the very people who were responsible for their general safety and well-being?

Henry Carlisle, 84, whose broad literary career included supporting oppressed writers, editing Camus, helping translate and publish Solzhenitsyn, and writing a novel that mused about cannibalism, died Monday in San Francisco of pneumonia complications. As a member of PEN, the international writers' group, Mr. Carlisle was active in supporting writers who faced censorship and other challenges. He was a leader in supporting Andrei Amalrik, a Russian writer who was imprisoned after publishing the essay "Will the Soviet Union Survive Until 1984?"
