But the defendant got upset when Assistant District Attorney Arlene Fisk questioned his version of a woman's slaying. "I killed her, but don't call me a liar," he blurted, blowing his case. A West Philadelphia man testifying against an accused killer brushed off his own checkered past.

Tomorrow will mark the end of an illustrious four-year high school tennis career. But what makes Robert Chambers particularly noteworthy is that he is not one of the stars of the Main Line, but a proud player from Chester. Chambers is only the second four-year contributor in the 11 years that Joe Providence has been coaching the Clippers. But in Providence's mind, Chambers is the best player he has ever coached.

Most basketball players are washed up by age 34. Fred Harmer of Brookhaven is not like most players. He's a 64-year-old retired insurance auditor and grandfather of five who simply doesn't know when to quit. Harmer can be found at the Penncrest High School gym in Middletown nearly every Tuesday night, running up and down the court with about a dozen or so other players. "What we are looking for," he said, "is the guy that plays tight defense, cuts to the basket and passes to the open man. " If you think Harmer stands out, take another look at the players on the court.

It was astonishing last week that the U.S. Supreme Court offered its strongest endorsement of affirmative action to women and minorities. The court provided its approval to a Santa Clara, Calif., Transportation Agency plan that gave Diane Joyce a dispatcher's job for which she was competing against six other qualified people - all men. One of the men, Paul Johnson, who had more experience than Joyce, sued.
