The message from federal judges presiding over Philadelphia police corruption cases is becoming increasingly clear - mercy will be shown to corrupt former officers who break the code of silence and become FBI witnesses. U.S. District Judge Edward N. Cahn repeated the message yesterday by sentencing ex-Lt. John Czmar to five years' probation. The testimony of Czmar, an admitted member of a police extortion ring, led to the conviction of former Chief Inspector Eugene Sullivan, once one of the most powerful men on the force.

Edward W. Boeck admits to diverting $110,000 from the coffers of Paxon Hollow Country Club in Marple from 1987 to 1990, but he isn't living high off the funds. At least, neither Deputy District Attorney Daniel J. McDevitt nor Boeck's defense attorney, Robert J. Radano, thinks he is. They believe that he kept little of the money. Boeck, 78, formerly of the 100 block of Signal Road, Havertown, pleaded guilty Sept. 23 in Delaware County Court to diverting the funds from the township-owned club.

Notre Dame's storied football program got a light but embarrassing slap when the NCAA put the school on probation for the first time in its history. The Irish football team received a two-year probation yesterday from the governing body of college sports and will lose two scholarships. College football's sanctioning body, however, did not touch Notre Dame's postseason eligibility, and its TV contract with NBC - worth an estimated $8 million to $9 million annually - is not affected.
