The governor's office yesterday called for nine state police employees to pay for a one-day excursion they received from a Japanese firm that was competing at the time for an $8.5 million state police contract. John T. Tighe 3d, Gov. Casey's deputy chief of staff, said he would also recommend that the state police reimburse the firm, Tokyo's NEC Information Systems, for about $1,000 in additional expenses that NEC paid for one trooper who traveled to Japan last year. NEC took the nine members of the State Police Bureau of Records and Information Services on an excursion to Mount Fuji in December after they completed a week of computer tests at the company's facilities in Tokyo.

At last there's a digital VCR worth its weight in high-tech chips! Almost anyone can recognize the genuine sonic improvements that digital encoding has wrought in compact discs. In the world of VCRs, however, most digital circuit "enhancements" are gimmicks with limited appeal. Do people really want to watch two channels at once - now possible with digital picture-in-picture? How often would you hanker to turn the TV screen into an abstract painting with a solarized or mosaic special effect?

We've relished the Pepsi vs. Coke Challenge, pondered the merits of Reebok vs. Nike, argued between Ford and Chevy trucks. This fall, we'll be confronted by more than $40 million in advertisements for a new generation of video games. And upstart Sega's advertising blitz goes one-on-one against Nintendo. So we'll just have to decide which of the three 16-bit video game systems is the one we can't live without. Will it be Nintendo's new Super NES - just arriving on store shelves priced at $199 and positioned as a "complement" to the extremely popular, but long- in-the-tooth, 8-bit NES system?

A failure of the over-burdened and antiquated Northeast Corridor rail network could cost the nation's economy $100 million a day, according to a regional report issued Monday. The report was mandated by Congress to analyze the current role of the Northeast Corridor in supporting economic activity and future prospects for growth. The report was issued by the NEC Commission, composed of representatives of the eight states and Washington, D.C., that make up the corridor; Amtrak; freight and commuter railroads, and the U.S. Department of Transportation.
