Cardinal Jaime Sin, one of Asia's most prominent religious leaders and a key figure in the "people power" revolt that ousted Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos, died today in Manila, his spokesman said. He was 76. Father Jun Sescon told DZBB radio in Manila that the cardinal, who had been in poor health for years, was hospitalized Sunday with a high fever and suffered multiple organ failure before his death early today.

"Our Fathers," premiering tonight on Showtime, is a TV movie about the sex scandals that shook the Boston archdiocese of the Roman Catholic Church in the early years of this century, when journalists and lawyers and victims emboldened to speak out brought to light a policy of moving "predator priests" from parish to parish rather than removing them from the priesthood, of paying off their victims to remain quiet, and of keeping it all from the police.

It has been more than four months since Kirk Saarloos faced Stanford, the last team to beat the Cal State Fullerton right-hander. Saarloos gave up successive sixth-inning home runs in the 3-0 defeat at Goodwin Field on Feb. 4 and then became almost invincible as a starter and closer for the Titans. Saarloos gets a chance to avenge the defeat today when top-seeded Fullerton (47-16) plays No. 4 Stanford (49-16) in a College World Series winners' bracket game at Rosenblatt Stadium.

If Stanford hadn't lost to Oregon State in its final game, the Cardinal had a shot at a No. 1 seeding, since Connecticut could have been sent to the South after Auburn and Maryland lost. Instead, the Cardinal may have to beat top-seeded Connecticut--a team that has blown out Stanford two years in a row with its pressing, attacking defense--to get back to the Final Four. Stanford opens with Alcorn State.

Arizona took care of it all Thursday--that springy Maples Pavilion floor, the frenzied, stomping students and, most of all, Stanford's undefeated record. Arizona guard Mike Bibby was spectacular, and by the end of the No. 6 Wildcats' 93-75 victory over No. 4 Stanford, he was plainly toying with the Cardinal defenders. Bibby dribbled away from Arthur Lee with ease, driving to the basket and hitting long-range shots with a grin on his face.

It's been six years since Joe Jackson has recorded anything remotely resembling a conventional pop song. But while the Englishman has successfully tackled everything from skinny-tie new wave to jump blues to urbane lounge jazz, he's always done it in the context of a pop career--until now. With his latest project, Jackson claims, he has shed his popster's persona for good, to devote himself to music that bridges classical and rock.

One of Britain's best-known television reporters smuggled an orphan out of Bosnia-Herzegovina by writing her name into his passport. Michael Nicholson, a reporter for Independent Television News, said Monday that his heart melted when 9-year-old Natasha Mihaljcic clung to his side while his crew filmed at an orphanage in the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo. "I committed the newsman's cardinal sin.

Thank you for attributing the "mad as hell" quote to screenwriter Paddy Chayefsky (Letters, March 29). It indicates you are artistically well-intentioned, but--sadly--misinformed. Howard Beale, as the "purists" you have addressed are no doubt aware, never said, "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore!" though others, especially in the latter half of "Network," did. What he said was: "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!"--a slight variance, perhaps, but with this innocuous error you have committed the journalist's cardinal sin: You have not checked your source.

Joe Bugel knows you can't give anything to the Washington Redskins. Bugel, a former Redskin assistant, saw his Phoenix Cardinals commit four turnovers Sunday in a 34-0 loss to the Redskins. "For us to match with the 'Skins, we have to play an error-free game, and we didn't," Bugel said. "The Redskins could be one of the best teams in the NFL right now. "We felt good about ourselves coming into the game. It doesn't make much sense to dwell on this game and panic.

As valleys follow peaks, and lean years follow fat, so do the Phoenix Cardinals follow the Denver Broncos on the Raider schedule. Where last week there was a 10-2 division rival and a 90,000-ticket sale, there is now a 5-8 going-nowhere bunch whose last appearance here--as a St. Louis team--in 1983, a month before the Raiders' Super Bowl XVIII victory, resulted in 11,758 no-shows and a crowd of 32,111, their smallest in Los Angeles.
