Now Herman Hunter is gone. For the third time in three days, a player has walked out of Eagles training camp. At this rate, the cutdown to 60 players on Aug. 19 will become irrelevant. First it was Steve Kenney. Then it was Greg Naron. And then yesterday it was Hunter, the running back who made the team last year with two kickoff returns for touchdowns in the preseason, and who excited a lot of people in the Eagles' nickel offense. The coaches said it was because he did not want to block.

One of the creepiest psychos in cinema history is the one Robert Mitchum plays - a twisted preacher who has the words love and hate tattooed on his knuckles - in Charles Laughton's sole film-directing endeavor, Night of the Hunter. The 1955 black-and-white film is charged with stark, shadowy tension, as the maniacal Mitchum chases two young girls, intent on recovering money stolen by their father. The kids find an ally in a kindly and wise old woman (Lillian Gish), and a menacing battle of good versus evil ensues.

He is a short, wizened man, who helped found the 55-year-old federation, a chapter of the statewide organization. Now, he operates it from his basement in the Far Northeast.
