All that I know about Drew Lewis is what I have read in newspapers. He is and long has been one of the most proficient hatchet men. Skill in identifying who should be fired is the most important factor in any reorganization. Haverford should have given a doctorate to Drew Lewis as its most proficient alumnus 20 years ago. The Republican Party should have recognized that his skills as a hatchetman are what the nation most needs. His courage in being true to his principles, as in the Haverford commencement, demonstrate why he would be the strongest presidential candidate available.

When Downingtown took a couple of early leads against Haverford in their opening-round game of the District 1 girls' lacrosse tournament yesterday, memories of last year's stunning first-round loss to Springfield came flooding back for Fords coach Nancy McGoldrick. Some of her players felt them, too. "This time we were determined that wasn't going to happen," said Haverford junior Colleen O'Hara, who helped spearhead a seven-goal surge that turned a tight game into a 14-5 romp for the Fords.

The Haverford High ice hockey team answered the doubts with determination, countered the boos with belief. "Everybody out there doubted us," senior captain and right winger Kevin Tallon said. "We were always the bottom dog. " The Fords (15-10-4) aren't barking from the bottom any more. They have qualified for the Flyers Cup, regardless of how they fare against Monsignor Bonner in the Eastern League Tier I championship series. In the best-of-three series, Haverford topped Bonner, 5-3, in Monday night's opener at the Skatium.

Calling all wannabe assistant township managers: Haverford is looking for someone to fill a position it hasn't had in a long time, a person who can oversee the public works department and help Township Manager Tom Bannar with administrative duties. Other municipalities, such as Tredyffrin, Springfield and Lower Merion, employ assistant township managers. Haverford Commissioners President Fred Moran suggested creating the position at a meeting Jan. 9, after the death a week earlier of Public Works Director Al DiGirolamo.

Meeting in closed session with a lawsuit hanging over their heads, the Haverford commissioners this week agreed on a reapportionment plan that board members say more nearly equalizes the populations of the township's nine wards. The Monday night session was hastily called last week after the League of Women Voters filed a suit in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia, contending that the township was violating the voters' equal-protection rights. The timing conflicted with a ice-hockey game played at the Skatium to benefit a Monsignor Bonner High School student who was burned in a school accident.

The Haverford High field hockey team went to bed last night knowing it will be playing another home game. The Fords will host Hatboro-Horsham tomorrow in the quarterfinals of the District 1 Class AAA playoffs. It's a distinct home-field advantage, too, and the Fords know it. Depending which direction play is going, teams are running and passing uphill or downhill. Yesterday, the fifth-seeded Fords had the downhill roll in the first half, and that is when they did their damage, scoring all three of their goals in a 3-0 victory over Owen J. Roberts.

One of W. Boulton Dixon's first tasks as the new headmaster of The Haverford School was to clean house. In April, four months before he was officially instated, he fired a good chunk of the staff. Others, sensing that enormous changes were about to take place at the elite boys school, resigned. When the purge was over, 19 of the 90-member faculty had been replaced. Although Dixon maintained in an interview that high turnovers are normal when a new administration takes over, Alfred Rauch Jr., president of the board of the directors, acknowledged that Haverford was looking to hire "new faces with new ideas.
