2 ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH EVERYDAY MONDAY, MAY 13, "2002 Fame Five new inductees make 100 stars on sidewalk ; Continued from Dl ; , They were tales originated pri-; marily by Peters, with Mason ' laughingly saying, "I dont re-! inember that at all." It was Pet-;-ers' story about stamping on ; Mason's foot at a dance at Nerinx 1 Hall, or was it Webster College? ! He wasn't sure, but he said, "I ' was doing some crazy dance and almost broke this other girl's foot," this other girl being Mason.

Paul "C. Reinert, S.J., former St. Louis "University president and chancellor, and the man who kept the school from moving out of the "city to the suburbs. ' :" Dierdorf plans to attend the induction ceremony, as does Peters, .'creator of "Mother Goose and ."Grimm," which appears in the ;"Post-Dispatch and in more than 800 newspapers worldwide. He'll ...come from Sarasota.

"But if you get a role to play, you've got to do it "So I'm going to ask Marita Woodruff, my drama teacher from Webster University (it was - Webster College back then), if she can accept this for me. She was my guiding light" Woodruff said she would do it She'll be joined by Mason's high school thespian teacher at Nerinx Hall, Sister Gabriel Mary Hoare, a Loretto nun. "Oh, yes, she was special," said Woodruff. "I'm Very honored to do it; I really love her." ,IT What follows is a brief sketch ? about each of the inductees. Marsha Mason: She's 60 now -and living another phase of life Ton a medicinal herb farm in "Abiquiu, N.M., about 60 miles - north of Santa Fe. Theater is -still part of her life, and in 2000 'she wrote "Journey: A Personal 'Odyssey." " Actress friend Shirley Mac-Laine urged Mason to write ."Journey," which deals in part :with Mason's life here, first on larence Avenue in St. Louis, .QnH lota in CvaotumntW Tr ic q life that she said had deeply 'troubled aspects, a path "as inevitable as it was debilitating." Mason's career has had stellar moments, including an Academy Award best-actress . nomination for the 1973 movie j "Cinderella Liberty." She also 'received Oscar nominations for movies written by her former Jiusband, playwright Neil Simon, "The Goodbye Girl," "Chapter Two" and "Only When I Laugh." When told about cartoonist Mike Peters' memories of being deeply enamored with her and especially her younger sister, Linda, she said, "Oh, that's so sweet." Daniel Lee Dierdorf: Was Dierdorf, who has lived here since" 1971 when he was with the old Big Red, surprised that he made it? "I thought I'd gone over the ;:Jegal limit. I'd thought I'd rnaxed out with halls of fame," 'he said, laughing, noting that "hot only is he in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his hometown of Canton, Ohio, and the .-College Football Hall of Fame "in South Bend, Ind., but he's ...also in the University of Michigan hall of honor (he was an All-America tackle with the Wolverines) and the state halls of fame in Michigan and Missouri.

Dierdorf starred in the days when the Big Red were known as the Cardiac Cardinals, a team with one of the best offensive lines in NFL history. For five consecutive seasons, the Big Red allowed the fewest quarterback sacks in the National Football Conference. Channel 9 show will salute four "bronze stars" on walk KETC will air an hourlong documentary on the St Louis Walk of Fame at 8 tonight, in anticipation of next Sunday's induction ceremonies along the Delmar Loop in University City. Depending on funding, Channel 9 plans a series of Walk of Fame specials, focusing on St Louis- ' connected people. Tonight's program, co-produced by KETC's Jim Kirchherr and "Walk of Fame" When: 8 tonight Where: Channel 9 Anne-Marie Berg- er, looks beyond those known for one accomplishment and centers on four "bronze stars" whose lives "made a contribution beyond their greatest achievement," said Kirchherr. They are Dwight Davis, a tennis star and benefactor; Jackie Joyner-Kersee, hailed as the best female athlete of the 20th century; Nobel Prize-winning scientists Carl and Gerty Cori, and Victorian author Kate Chopin, who opened a Pandora's on matters of Tennis' prestigious Davis Cup was donated by Davis, a star of Dierdorf started a broadcasting career after 13 years with the Cardinals. He made six appearances in the Pro Bowl, and three times was voted the NFL's best blocker. He began handling the microphone first with KMOX radio, then had a 12-year stint as an analyst for ABC-TV's "Monday Night Football," which ended in 1998. Since then, he's been an analyst on CBS' No. 2 NFL broadcast team.

We all had to have other jobs because we didn't make enough money playing football. So we worked in the offseason, and we got to meet people and make friends and become part of the community." Now, playing in the NFL is a full-time, year-round occupation. "I think some of that is their loss," he said of current the game at Harvard who later "helped develop the park system in St Louis during the Reform-Progressive eras, and also served as secretary of war under President (Calvin) Coolidge," Kirchherr noted. Joyner-Kersee, famous for her extraordinary feats in track and field, now supports a boys and girls club in her hometown of East St Louis that bears her name. The Coris, who won the Nobel Prize in 1947 for research on blood glucose, became mentors to students who also contributed to significant scientific advancements, six of them also winning Nobel Prizes. Chopin's 1899 novel "The Awakening" dealt with women's sexuality at a time when that didn't fly well. "Beyond the book is a character who resonates today," said Kirchherr. "It continues to be read, inspire and prompt debate." John M. McGuire players. Dierdorf lives in Town and Country; he will turn 53 on June 29. Archie Moore: Raised in St. Louis, the Hall of Fame boxer who was known as "The Old Mongoose" died in December 1998 in San Diego. He was 84. Born in Benoit, Miss., as Archibald Lee Wright, he began fighting as Archie Moore in 1936 and retired at age 49. His 27-year career was one of the longest in professional sports. Moore was the light-heavyweight champion for 11 years, PROGRAM SERVICE hi - w.i.

Some of his opponents formed a Who's Who of boxing Rocky Marciano, Floyd Patterson, Ezzard Charles and a young Cassius Clay, who later became Muhammad Ali. In 1952, at 39, he won the light-heavyweight title at The Arena in St. Louis by defeating Joey Maxim. An old friend and longtime fight promoter, Myrl Taylor, who like Moore spent time in Missouri's Algoa Reformatory as a youngster, tells a funny story about posing with Moore and assistant chief detective Jim Reddick of the St. Louis police. According to Taylor, Moore said: "(Let's) Don't put our arms around each other because that will just tell people we don't know each other." Mike Peters: The mutt Grimm in the syndicated comic strip "Mother Goose and Grimm" is really Mike Peters, the Mike Peters who once lived in Dog-town and moved to Webster Groves when he was 10, after his mother, the late Charlotte Peters, launched her local television career as a talk-show host. "The place is almost like a shrine to me, the Dogtown where I grew up," said Peters, also a Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist for the Dayton Daily News, and recipient of almost every major honor in his profession. "Oh, sure, I come back to St. Louis (he lives in Sarasota) all the time, and spend a lot of time wandering around Gregg Avenue where we lived. People must think here's a dirty old man hanging around the neighborhood." Peters will be 59 on Oct. 9. The Rev. Paul Clare Reinert: The Walk of Fame event and St. Louis University's 184th graduation are a day apart, the commencement coming Saturday. The timing couldn't be more fitting, given Reinert's important role in the history of this university, the oldest college west of the Mississippi River. Reinert and his Roman collar could be seen all over the place, in the board room of the city's Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority, which he served on, and at monthly meetings of an ecumenical group of Protestants and Jews. Reinert, a native of Boulder, Colo., died last July at age 90. He was eulogized for having the philosophy the Jesuits called homines pro aliis men and women living for others.
