Houston Baptist University has withdrawn as host of the 1990 Men's Gymnastics Championships after an NCAA investigation of the school's gymnastics program. The event, scheduled for April 19 to 21 at Sam Houston Coliseum, will be moved to the University of Minnesota, the NCAA said. Houston Baptist Athletic Director Ed Billings said the ineligibility of gymnasts Alfonso Rodriquez and Miguel Rubio because of NCAA rules violations would have made the event financially unsuccessful.

RUDOLPH W. GIULIANI may or may not have helped his presidential campaign by unambiguously identifying himself as pro-choice on abortion, first in a speech last week in Texas and again in Tuesday night's debate in South Carolina. Either way, the former New York mayor has done a service to Republican voters by clarifying his views instead of fudging them for primary season.

One night three years ago, William Lon Wright was performing his usual mix of recent pop hits and older standards in a quiet piano bar in the Westwood district of Los Angeles. As he was getting ready to leave, a man walked up and suggested Wright's vocal and piano-playing style was better suited for interpreting show tunes from Broadway musicals, particularly those of the 1920s, '30s and '40s.

At a time when the words of the late British novelist, scholar and lay theologian C.S. Lewis are reaching more people than ever, a newly published Bible bearing his name has excited fans and provoked debate over whether Lewis would have approved. "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader," the third film created from Lewis' "Chronicles of Narnia" series, has earned more than $400 million since its December release. Next month, Lewis' translation of Virgil's Aeneid will be published. A stage adaptation of "The Screwtape Letters" is on national tour.

Colin Montgomerie has always been a difficult guy to get your arms around, and not only because he's pudgy. It's his nature. Montgomerie can be cantankerous, abrupt, chronically moody and often downright unfriendly. At 41, any chances for personal improvement may appear slim, because Montgomerie looks as if he's a finished product. Then again, maybe he isn't. There is another side of Montgomerie that he showed last week in the small town on the Ayrshire coast where he grew up.

The U.S. Open took on a slightly European flavor Friday at Oakmont Country Club, where pudgy Scot Colin Montgomerie went on a diet of birdies and took the second-round lead. Montgomerie, 30, whose geographical golf pedigree extends from the Scottish links to Houston Baptist University to the 1987 Scottish Amateur title, toured storied Oakmont in 65 shots for 136, taking a two-stroke lead over Hale Irwin, who shot a 69, and John Cook and Dave Edwards, who also shot 65s.
