When I read a book purporting to give the facts of a person's life or a historical event and find mistakes in it, I begin to doubt the accuracy of the entire volume. I also begin to wonder what has happened to the kind of copy editor who used to bother to check an author's statements. I have just finished reading a piece of trash, The Duchess of Windsor by Charles Higham. It is supposedly filled with new revelations about the duchess who, by now, has been written about so much that it would seem impossible to uncover anything new. To me, the only surprise came with the statement that the duchess was born out of wedlock and never baptized.

The Merry Wives of Windsor might be the most trifling of Shakespeare's comedic trifles. But with its broad humor and a plot as slender as, well, its character Slender, Shakespeare in Clark Park proves the Merry Wives' mettle as a delightful outdoor accompaniment on a summer evening. This is Falstaff's command performance, written by Shakespeare in two weeks at the behest of Queen Elizabeth. She couldn't get enough of the big man in Henry IV , and wanted to see him try his luck with the ladies.

While all eyes are on Kentucky Derby champion Sea Hero in his quest for horse racing's Triple Crown and the $5 million bonus that goes with it, an unlikely colt from Maryland has risen to challenge him at the second hurdle - the Preakness Stakes. They call him Woodie, a very big and very playful bay colt whose development as a 3-year-old this spring has been a step behind the Derby crowd, but who now seems to have caught up, according to trainer Ben Perkins Jr. His name is Woods of Windsor, a son of Woodman and a grandson of the great Mr. Prospector.

While most of the cigar industry in south-central Pennsylvania has gone up in smoke, the sales of House of Windsor, a small manufacturer in this tiny York County town, increased 13 percent in 1988. The company predicts another increase for this year. It has not been easy, especially in an industry whose sales peaked in 1964 at 8.9 billion cigars and have fallen 72 percent to 2.5 billion cigars. In 1988, House of Windsor president John E. Woltman 3d and a partner bought the company from U.S. Tobacco Co. This year, Woltman bought out his partner's interest.

"Are we paying by the cliche?" asks the man named Windsor early in Do Not Go Gentle, the new play that opened Thursday at the Bristol Riverside Theatre. He's speaking to his cousin, Joanna, about the platitudinous estate-sale agent who's disposing of the contents of his dead mother's house. But the question might be echoed by anyone unlucky enough to encounter the stock characters and tired, leaden dialogue of this unfortunate enterprise. Suzan Zeder's play is set in the living room of the late Lillian Barron, an 84-year-old St. Louis woman who lived alone while her son was posted here and there by the Air Force - an employer of whom she disapproved.

The chairman of a committee rewriting Cherry Hill's rent control laws said he planned to resign tomorrow, citing differences with Mayor Susan Bass Levin and the president of the township tenants' association. Jerry Segal, president of the mayor's Rent Review Revision Committee, said in an interview yesterday that Levin was "interfering" with the committee's goal of drafting a fairer rent control law. "All these things have happened because of the Towers of Windsor case," Segal said, referring to the apartment complex where tenants were handed a 7.5 percent increase April 30. The increase, granted by the township's Rent Control Board, was made retroactive to April 1991 and caused Levin to introduce an ordinance last month banning retroactive rent increases.

Kensworth, East Pikeland Township, Chester County Martti Miettinen and his wife, Libby Keating, were still trying to get settled a few days after moving into their new house in Kensworth, but they were enjoying their surroundings while doing it. "There's lot of windows in the house, and we're smack in the middle of farmland," said Miettinen, who moved from Connecticut to the East Pikeland Township development. "We have some great views. "We're also into collecting art, and this gives us a great place to display it," he added.

BOSTON - The mill boss who was hailed as a humanitarian for refusing to lay off his workers or stop their paychecks after a fire closed him down in 1995 announced yesterday that he is letting up to 300 employees go. Aaron Feuerstein kept paying hundreds of workers for weeks after the blaze destroyed three buildings at his Malden Mills in Lawrence just before Christmas. He said the fire was part of the reason for layoffs now. The layoffs amount to 10 percent of the company's worldwide work force of 3,000.

Multimillion-dollar contracts don't buy what they used to, and for fans of the Union, the largesse bestowed upon David Beckham couldn't buy them a chance to hoot once again at the gaudy L.A. Galaxy hood ornament. Becks didn't make the trip to Chester for Wednesday night's Major League Soccer match at PPL Park. Galaxy coach Bruce Arena let him stay behind in Los Angeles to rest up for a Saturday home game. Arena shrugged and said that if the league wants one of its showcase attractions to show up for every game, then it shouldn't schedule three games in the space of 10 days.

In a small office in West Conshohocken, a legendary stock market bottom feeder has been having a feast. John B. Neff, who racked up record gains as manager of Vanguard's Windsor Fund over three decades, is buying stocks again. And while the actions of one person may mean little in a multitrillion-dollar market, Neff's renewed romance with stocks signals that, to him, the worst is over. As of Friday, he has put cash that he had held on the sidelines for the last year back into the stock market.

Giancarlo Granese has not only a name befitting a soccer player, but also a style of play that sets him apart. Yesterday in the NJSIAA South Jersey Group 3 boys' soccer championship game, Granese lived up to the name and the tenacious brand of soccer he plays by scoring four goals to lead top-seeded Ocean City in a 5-1 victory over visiting Kingsway. The win catapulted Ocean City (22-0-1) into the state semifinals against West Windsor North (13-7-1), the Central Jersey Group 3 champion, Tuesday at 5 p.m. at Toms River North.

ENGLAND hailed the wedding of commoners Thomas Crapper and Deborah Biltcliffe Saturday, at least according to the anti-monarchist Independent, which put the Crapper wedding on Page One. The slightly larger Windsor wedding went on Page 4, with the headline, "The end of the affair. " But that was the one brief moment of cattiness - even with Joan Rivers in attendance. The ceremony went smoothly, the guests were all smiles and the couple's jitters seemed sweetly endearing. Even Queen Elizabeth managed to pull herself away from watching the horse races long enough to pose for a wedding photo with Prince Charles and Camilla, the duchess of Cornwall.
