Britt Hager, the Eagles' long-haired and until now little-used middle linebacker, is standing in the middle of the field, in the middle of it all. Reggie White and Jerome Brown line up in front of him; Eric Allen to his side; Andre Waters behind him. And the man making the calls, the man barking the signals, gesturing frantic orders on the run, is Britt Hager, he of the long, brown hair and skimpy NFL experience. Byron Evans, the man who led the defense last year, is in Arizona, stubbornly staying away from camp and the good graces of his head coach.

The Eagles have finally added much-needed bulk and an experienced middle- clogger to a defensive line that has undergone plastic surgery this offseason. Ex-49ers nose tackle Michael Carter, all 6-2, 300-plus pounds of him, is due in camp Tuesday with the rest of the veterans after agreeing to a one-year free agent contract. Sources said Carter agreed to a tremendous salary cut - more than $500,000 - to prove that he has one or two good years of football left in his 32-year- old body.

Roger M. Simon, a lawyer, discovered in 1982 that he really did have the "guts" to participate in a cocaine deal. On Tuesday he was disbarred. Simon, a former lawyer for the state Labor Relations Board, had admitted being the "middle man" in the sale and purchase of four ounces of cocaine to "see if I had the guts. " He was stripped of his right to practice law by the state Supreme Court. Simon served three months in prison after being convicted in U.S. District Court on Feb. 14, 1984, for possession of drugs with intent to deliver and conspiracy.

IF THE WEATHER holds, the Dells, Heatwave and Halo will perform tonight at the Dell East. After that, who knows who will step onto the outdoor amphitheater's stage this season. There's been no announcements, no advertising, no promotion of acts for the "Dell East Essence of Entertainment 2005" series. And no one in City Hall appears to care, because if they did, they'd let the Dell staff book the shows rather than an outside booking agency. It's ridiculous to expect a season-ticket holder at the Dell, which caters to the city's lovers of R&B and soul, to fork over $155 for eight events without a clue to who'll be featured.

Second base is where you can cheat. And get away with it. Second being the shortest throw to first, it is accepted strategy to fudge on your positioning and move back. And back. And farther still. Second becomes more like short right field. Position No. 4 has to run down all those bloops and blips and assorted pop-ups and prevent them from parachuting safely, cheaply, in. Second base also has to range deep into foul territory while managing not to get run over by some slew-footed first baseman.

Police Officer Edwin "Bo" Diaz is a one-time boxer who has become the consummate peacemaker, a guy who enjoys smoothing the rough edges and winning the trust of kids on some of the meanest streets in Philadelphia. "I let 'em know I was a regular guy who survived. There's always hope," said Diaz, the eighth winner of the Daily News' George Fencl Award. Diaz, 39, has been community relations officer for eight years in the 26th District, Girard and Montgomery avenues - the area where he spent his teen years.

So they've got Cliff Robinson back; so what does that mean? It means that, for a rare time this season, all of the major pieces will be there for the Sixers. It means that there aren't many - or any - more excuses left for the team as it continues to stumble its way through the season. It means that what generally resembles the kind of team owner Harold Katz and general manager John Nash have been planning to play this season probably will be out there tonight as the Sixers travel to San Antonio - if Robinson can play.

I loved that little chirping chick, all downy yellow, pecking away in his box. I'd rub the chick against my cheek, hold it and give it a love squeeze. Maybe a little too hard, because sometimes it would try to squirm out of my grasp. Until the day it jumped and landed on the floor head first. It started convulsing, chirping wildly, and then its little eyes closed and it lay perfectly still. It couldn't be dead, I prayed. No, no and no. In search of a miracle, my 7-year-old brain came up with a plan.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream - there was David White. American black-owned businesses in the 1940s were rare. And no one can tell the story of the time better than one man who lived it.

In St. Louis on Sunday, whither he went in search of restored pre-eminence, the incumbent President sometimes seemed, amazingly, to be the third man, even a bystander on stage. Whatever suspense surrounded the first presidential debate leaked from it early when George Bush became defensive about his most recent attempt to put Bill Clinton on defensive. Bush began, "I said something the other day where I was accused of being like Joe McCarthy . . . . " Clinton played the Prescott Bush card (refraining from saying: "And you're no Prescott Bush . . . ")

AUBURN HILLS, Mich — Who would have ever thought Lavoy Allen could be the 76ers' starting center when they open the playoffs this season? Maybe it's a testament to how far Allen has come since being taken with the 50th pick in June's draft out of Temple. Or maybe it's a sign of how shorthanded the Sixers are at center right now. When the team was mired in a four-game losing streak earlier this month, coach Doug Collins decided to shuffle the starting lineup, moving center Spencer Hawes to the bench in favor of rookie Nikola Vucevic.

Aren't you weary of all the chatter about how the lack of a "real" national crisis will prevent Bill Clinton from achieving the historian-certified greatness he so desires? Poor Bill. No Civil War, Depression or Evil Empire to test his mettle. You know what? If facing such agonies is the price of "greatness" in the Oval Office, let's pass. Let's just wish for a president who's serious about the stewing challenges the nation does face. Such as: its slow-drying pool of red ink; entitlement programs steaming to a head-on collision with demographics; a system of paying for elections that would turn St. Francis into a cynic; an unstable world order; public schools that have lost the faith of the people, even if they're not quite so feckless as some aver.

In the photographs, he looks like the guy next door, somebody's uncle or young-looking grandfather - not the Clyde Barrow of South Jersey. He wears a baseball cap, sweatshirt and sneakers. And he's got gray hair, a thin build and "wrinkled dry skin around the cheeks and jaw. " But don't let the non-threatening appearance fool you, says the FBI in Newark. This man - in his mid-40s to early 50s - has robbed six or maybe as many as nine banks over the last three years, taking in more than $50,000 in cash, authorities said.

U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter yesterday launched an exploratory bid for the presidency with a strong diatribe against the "far right fringe. " "Dan Quayle was right when he said the divisive 1992 convention hurt the Bush-Quayle re-election campaign," Specter said. "Pat Buchanan was wrong when he disagreed with Dan Quayle and said America is engaged in a 'holy war.' " The right quickly returned fire, with one group calling Specter's bid "a kamikaze mission that is doomed to failure.

Chester County authorities say they have a case of murder on their hands. But they're still trying to figure out who was killed. Two hunters tracking deer in woods just outside of Coatesville Monday evening stumbled upon the skeletal remains of a man partially wrapped in a blanket, said Chester County District Attorney Anthony Sarcione. An autopsy Tuesday evening revealed that the remains belonged to a tall, middle-age man and that he was a victim of foul play. One source close to the investigation said the autopsy found that the man met a "violent death.
