J.D. Salinger, whose life has been one long campaign to erase himself from the public eye, is reversing himself somewhat at 78. Next month will see the publication of "Hapworth 16, 1924," the first new Salinger book in 34 years. Salinger is one of the most enduring and influential postwar American writers, and any New York publisher would have paid a bundle for the rights to the story, which appeared in the New Yorker in 1965.

It was quite clear Serrano was frustrated. Why wouldn't he be? His Dons stranded 14 runners and were the beneficiary of five Poway errors. They lost to the No. 2 Titans, 8-2, in a Hilltop-Moose Tournament game at the University of San Diego. "I have a young team," Serrano said after No. 6 USDHS (3-2) dropped its second game in a row.

Few value their privacy as dearly as J.D. Salinger. Now his daughter, Margaret, is putting her own price on that commodity, joining his former lover, Joyce Maynard, by offering letters from him to the highest bidder. Margaret Salinger, nicknamed Peggy, plans to auction a cache of 32 letters at a Sotheby's auction in New York next month. The correspondence, which began when Peggy was 2 and ended when she was 36, document a relationship marked by turmoil. The letters are "truly extraordinary," said Marsha Malinowski of Sotheby's in New York, adding that in the latter part of the correspondence, Salinger "becomes his character.

Agent Scott Boras was interviewed for the June edition of Playboy and was asked how he would change the World Series. Boras replied: "I'd modernize it, make it five out of nine games, with the first two in a neutral city. Announce the MVP and Cy Young awards at a gala held between the playoffs and a new World Series weekend. Move the home-run contest from the All-Star game to that week too. "The gala and home-run derby would lead to Game 1 of the Series on Saturday, with Game 2 on Sunday.
