(UPI) "This activity satisfies something every kid in the world has to have," said Don Pesceone, speaking of drum corps. "I'm talking about competition. Membership in these corps teaches a youth how to be.a good competitor and a good sportsman." Pesceone, executive director of Drum Corps International, said his daughter, Cheryl, '13, is starling in a neighborhood corps. She is just learning to march. If she makes it, she'll be expected to put in 15 to 20 hours a week practice around the calendar. "The drum corps teaches kids to live together and work together for long periods of lime," Pesceone said. ' 5325 Bruce's Special: Mon. thru Thurs.

(AP Wirephoto) By United Press International Going Cr«y, by Otto Friedrick. (Simon and Schuster) Madness, says the author, "is part of all of us, all the time, it comes and goes, waxes and wanes." Under that thesis, the reader is treated to -- or pummeled by -- story after story of famous and unknown persons who have gone crazy for varying periods of lime and in varying degrees of Intensity. A Harvard student who sees himself as a giant bird is nut as direly afflicied as a housewife who is hospitalized for slashiing her wrist and proceeds to repeat the act. Scott Fitzgerald's dottiness as a young man ruined his health and his career, and Ernest Hemingway's paranoia late in life ended with a self-inflicted bullet in the head. The author, a news magazine editor, is not a psychiatrist and does not pretend to understand the phenomenon. He has a broad definition of craziness that includes almost all abnormal behavior. He goes as far as to suggest that all major crimes are craziness. He found that practically anything can bringing on madness -- marriage, divorce, failure or success. And he has dredged up a massive collection of sufferers -- Eugene O'Neill, Richard M.Nixon, Sen. Thomas ' Eagleton, Scott Joplin, James Baldwin. The book is most absorbing in dealing with the problems of unknown people, such as the novelist hounded by voices urging him to murder liis .mother. Or an engineer who blacked out during a drinking bout and the next morning discovered his missing kitten in the freezer. The craziness of Fitzgerald, Hemingway, and other famous persons has been well catalogued elsewhere.

A I 111.1:11C PACCLif J i l l ) The fighter side Our most quotable President By Mir'K WFST WASHINGTON (UPI) -You expect more from Washington's Birthday sales in a Bicentennial year, and we got it. Merchants in the . nation's capital traditionally honor the Father of Our Country by drastically knot-king down the prices of hard-to-sell items. This week, with America's 200th birthday serving as added incentive, they outdid themselves. But it wasn't the spectacular bargains lhat bowled me over. I was more impressed by the tremendous amount of research that went into the preparation of some of the advertisements. Diligent admen dug back into the obscure corners of history and came up with a number of George Washington quotes that to my knowledge had never before been published. The newly discovered sayings wore printed in liltle comic strip balloons above Washington's portrait at the top of the layouts. Did you know, for example, that Washington once said, "I wnnt you to join our 1776 plan?" I didn't know it either until I came across that quote in a health spa ad lhat featured $1,770 membership plans. Presumably, the original ul- lerance was part of the pitch thai Washington made to France fur support in the revolution. My compliments to the health spa adman for bringing it to light. Harder to place in the context of history was the Washington quotation in an office furniture advertisement. "This is the greatest sale I've ever seen. Would I lie?" he was quoted as saying. Washington may have uttered that remark when he ran across some hot bargains while shopping for a desk, swivel chair and filing cabinet for his Valley Forge headquarters. Note, however, the wistful "Would I lie?" That would iip|H.-ir lu lilaec Uic tjUuU; in jn earlier time frame when the cherry tree incident was still fresh in his mind.

This brings us to the advertisement quoting Washington as exclaiming, "Gee, Wizard, no wonder you're first in the hearts of hi-fi lovers! These birthday sale buys arc great." I consulted a number of reference works and none suggested any circumstance under which that comment might have been uttered. I did, however, learn lhat Washington had a sweet tooth, albeit a wooden one. Quite likely on one of his birthdays he decided to treat himself to a bit of pastry and found a shoofly pie sale at the Wi?xird Bakery. He might then have remarked, "Gee, Wizard, no wonder you're first in the hearts of shoofly lovers. Those birthday sale pics arc great." Although the original was corrupted with the passage of time, this quote is the stuff of- which history is made. It's good that we have admen with intellectual curiosity.
