Politics as practiced in Delaware possesses a gentility unheard of in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and, alas much of the rest of the nation. Consider: Sam Beard, who initially thought he had won the Democratic race for U.S. Senate in last weekend's primary, discovered that, as a result of a keypunch error, his 2,800-vote victory margin over Lt. Gov. S.B. Woo had become an 88-vote defeat. Mr. Beard, a Wilmington businessman, sought a statewide recount but didn't have enough time to formally file the request before New Castle County election officials certified the results.

When Michele Rosenbaum completed her field hockey career at Haverford High School three years ago, she was looking forward to playing for a good college near home.

Courtney Batts made an official visit to Wisconsin and could have made another to Georgia Tech. But when Batts today signs a football letter of intent, it will be with a school that plays at the Division I-AA level - Delaware. Batts, a two-time first-team Daily News All-City player at Penn Charter and the Inter-Ac League Player of the Year last fall, said his decision came down to Wisconsin or Delaware. "One of the main things I looked at was how quickly I could get playing time and maybe become a star," said the versatile Batts, who will play defensive back.

WHAT an AWESOME day last Friday was. Our trip down was a breeze. We drove from Glenside to the Fern Rock subway station. Found parking on Camac. Walked right onto an express. We made our way to 16th and Market, two adults and nine kids. At 9:30, the crowd was already in a frenzy. The parade-starved crowd was cheering everyone from bike messengers to the UPS deliveryman. Philly's Finest decided we could put the kids over the barricades and let them sit on the curb. They were thrilled.
