The Devon Horse Show Toys and Souvenirs Booth this year has added several new pieces of memorabilia - all of which feature the official horse show seal. A white cotton, golf-style sweater, featuring the blue seal, will make its debut at $25, and a watch, with the seal on its face, will be selling for $40. But Kim Hughes, now in her third year as chairwoman of the booth, said she expected T-shirts ($10 to $12.50) and sweatshirts ($25) to continue as the best sellers. Both sold out last year, boosting the booth's profits to more than $30,000.

Five Chinese-speaking men burst into the kitchen of the Chinese Delight restaurant at closing in Devon Sunday, tied up the owners and two employees, and escaped with $2,000 in cash and jewelry, police said. Tredyffrin police Capt. Paul Pennypacker said the owners, Teh Tsin Chao, 60, and his wife, Shu Chen Chao, were closing about 11:45 p.m. when they were surprised by the robbers, who were armed with a gun and a kitchen knife. "We're not ruling out the fact that this may have been some sort of underworld Chinese organization that preys on the Chinese community," he said.

The Bicentennial League may be losing a member, as Devon Prep is expected to join the Southern Chester County League for the 1996-97 school year. "It will not be official until we've checked out the league's constitution and signed a letter of acceptance," said the Rev. James J. Shea, headmaster of the Chester County school. "But I assume that it will be OK. I don't see any problems. " Father Shea said he expected the move to become official within a few days. The Bicentennial League has seven other schools, all of them in Bucks and Montgomery Counties.

Devon Prep lived up to its top seeding last night, defeating Girard College, 75-65, for the PIAA District 1 Class A boys' basketball championship. The district title was Devon's first since 1990. Girard was seeking its initial crown. "We thought from the beginning of the season that we could do this," Devon coach Frank Steidler said. "We knew we had a nice team, had a good point guard [Mike Pingitore] coming in, and we had some depth. It was just a matter of jelling. " The game - at Strath Haven High - was played at a furious pace from the opening tap, which is exactly what Steidler and the Tide wanted.

Devon Prep accomplished something no other Tide soccer team had done in more than a decade yesterday by not losing to Holy Ghost Prep. The only problem was, it certainly felt like a loss. The teams wound up in a 2-2 tie, but the Tide had to wake up this morning wondering how they missed out on upsetting the Firebirds. Devon entered the game 7-6-2 overall and 4-1-1 in the Bicentennial League. Holy Ghost was 12-3 overall and 7-0 in the league. But right from the start, it was Devon that carried the play.
