James V. Magee, a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter for the Evening Bulletin, died Tuesday. He was 73 and lived in the Frankford section of Philadelphia. In 1963, Magee and reporter Albert V. Gaudiosi, along with photographer Frederick A. Meyer, used camera and notebook to record the operations of a major betting operation in South Philadelphia that included payoffs to police officers. Six weeks after the surveillance began, federal agents raided the operation and the Bulletin published a dramatic series of articles and photographs.

Phillies hitting coach Hal McRae calls it using "the whole dollar. " Sometimes players need a charm or a routine to click their hitting switch to "on. " For Wendell Magee Jr., it was McRae's little phrase. "He used it about three weeks ago," Magee said after belting his first three home runs of the spring in a 14-10 win against the Kansas City Royals yesterday. "He would tell me something every other week. He's a great teacher. He wouldn't tell me everything that was wrong at the same time.

Jefferson Health System took a major step yesterday toward becoming the region's powerhouse for hospital-based rehabilitation care. The health system said it planned to add 96-bed Magee Rehabilitation Hospital of Philadelphia to its growing system. The hospitals said they hoped to reach a definitive agreement by late June and will seek regulatory approval under anti-trust laws. If the deal goes through, Jefferson would have a lock on nearly 40 percent of the rehabilitation beds in the five-county Philadelphia area.

Police came under gunfire early yesterday when they raided a South Philadelphia rowhouse where they suspected stolen goods were bought and sold, according to Lt. Robert Magee of the major-crimes unit. No one was injured, and police did not return the gunfire, Magee said. A woman who fled the house during the raid was being sought in connection with the shooting, he said. Officers confiscated thousands of dollars worth of suspected stolen goods in the rowhouse's first-floor apartment, including watches, stereos, televisions and about 80 rounds of handgun and rifle ammunition, Magee said.

Chances are, if it's summertime, Tom Gussen can be found on a basketball court, playing for one of several teams in and around the Northeast. The 6-foot-7 forward, formerly of Philadelphia College of Textiles & Science, competes for the Phil's Shoes team in the Disston League and for Gilhooley's in the Ramp/Pollack League. He also had been playing in the prestigious Baker League until it suspended operations recently. Gussen, 24, is much like players he competes against, many of whom are current or former local college players, such as Mo Connolly of St. Joseph's and Bob Convey of La Salle.

PHIL MARTELLI WAS in his office one day last season, the door closed, the word out that he was not to be disturbed. If you have been around the Saint Joseph's coach when he watches tape, you know he occupies a world all his own. One of the student-managers got a call in the basketball office. She thought it important enough to knock timidly on the coach's door. "She said, 'You really need to take this call,' " Martelli remembered. It was Leti Martelli. She wanted to tell the coach about her son Lenny.

It has been almost two years now since Lenny Dykstra walked to the batter's box, fidgeting all the way. Almost two years since he swung a baseball bat under game conditions. That will change this weekend. The Phillies open their exhibition season this afternoon with a game against the Blue Jays in Dunedin. Dykstra isn't expected to play, but should start against Toronto tomorrow at Jack Russell Stadium and against the Yankees Sunday at Legends Field in Tampa. "I'm looking forward to it," he said yesterday.

When the Lufthansa plane carrying the family of Pablo Escobar finally landed in Frankfurt, Germany, on a Sunday afternoon in November 1993, it was forced to taxi to a remote spot on an alternate runway, out of the view of press waiting in the terminal. Colombian President Cesar Gaviria had been on the phone to officials in Spain and Germany, urging them to refuse the Escobars. He explained that if the family was safely removed from Colombia, there would be another vicious bombing campaign by Pablo Escobar.

ONE OF THE great joys of attending a potential Herb Magee milestone is getting a pregame audience with the King in his office. After the obligatory stop at Joe's (nee Chink's), Mike Kern and I arrived at Philadelphia University last Tuesday at 4:30 p.m., 3 hours before the first attempt at 1,000 was to begin. Magee was over in Althouse Hall, where this all began, conducting a walkthrough for the game against Wilmington. It was to be his 1,397th game as head coach. It was anything but a normal scene in and around the Gallagher Center, and Magee was uncomfortable.

HERB MAGEE again will try to make history today, as Philadelphia University (14-6) hosts Post (9-11) at 4 p.m. in the Gallagher Athletic Center at the intersection of Henry Avenue and Schoolhouse Lane in East Falls. Magee is trying to become the second men's coach in NCAA basketball to reach 1,000 wins. Duke's Mike Krzyzewski, a fellow Naismith Memorial Hall of Famer, got there on Jan. 18 when the Blue Devils beat St. John's at Madison Square Garden. Magee's first chance to join him ended in a 72-70 home loss to visiting Wilmington on Tuesday.

One of his guys would let a three-pointer go from the fingertips, and Herb Magee would lean to his side as if he was trying to will a five-iron toward a pin over at Edgmont Country Club. He kept bending, but these shots didn't need his body English. The result became inevitable after five consecutive Philadelphia University three-pointers fell in 141 seconds, a festival of second-half jumpers. Another banner was unfurled from above Philly U.'s scoreboard. Magee gave it a long look, no doubt at that number "1,000" on top of his name, and the 48th-year coach kind of nodded.

HISTORY WILL have to wait. At least until Saturday afternoon. Everything was in place last night at Philadelphia University's Gallagher Center. The Rams were trying to get coach Herb Magee his 1,000th win, 9 days after Duke's Mike Krzyzewski, another Naismith Hall of Famer, became the first man in NCAA history to reach that number. Too bad somebody forgot to tell Wilmington it wasn't supposed to get in the way of the celebration. Ironically, it came down to a three-pointer from straightaway by Philly U's top scorer, senior guard Nick Schlitzer.

The place had a VIP feel. Ed Rendell sat in the front row, and TV cameras from the local stations shot footage from the corners. Some of Herb Magee's fellow coaches sneaked into the building, and 34 former Magee players were in the stands. A simple sign in the corner of the gym told the story, a printed black "1" on a white square. Philadelphia University's coach, in his 48th season in charge on Henry Avenue, on track for the 1,000th win of his Hall of Fame career, trying to join Mike Krzyzewski as the only NCAA men's coaches to hit that mark, watched a beautifully arcing attempt by a textbook shooter track toward the basket in the final seconds, a game-winner if it fell.

What does it take to win 1,000 college basketball games? Philadelphia University's Herb Magee, already a basketball Hall of Famer - the guy who went to college on Henry Avenue 51/2 decades ago and never left - needs one more to join Duke's Mike Krzyzewski as the only NCAA men's coaches at all levels to win 1,000 times. Krzyzewski got to the number on Jan. 25. "It's staggering," said University of the Sciences coach Dave Pauley of the win total. "Twenty wins a year for 50 years.

ONCE AGAIN, Mother Nature has intervened in Herb Magee's quest to become the second men's basketball coach in NCAA history to reach 1,000 wins. On Saturday, Philadelphia University's game at Bloomfield was postponed until Feb. 19 because of the threat of snow. Now, tonight's home game with Holy Family (14-6) has been moved back to Feb. 12 because of the latest storm. That means the earliest that Magee, who has 997 career victories, can get to quadruple figures is next Tuesday at home against Wilmington (5-15)
