James Washington of Watts, Whittier and the Dallas Cowboys, the fierce hitter who is known in pro football as "Drive By," acknowledges at least two other interests: making it as a businessman and helping people in the old neighborhood. Friends from UCLA still remember the night of the first Phi Beta Sigma dance of Washington's freshman year there. All evening, instead of dancing, he stood by the entrance to the frat-sponsored community fund-raiser.

Said James Washington, the Cowboy defensive back who had one of four Dallas interceptions, on his dreams: "First of all, I now will get this gigantic ring, huge. I dreamed about getting that. You know, as a kid, you dream and dream and you play out your dreams on the street. I remember watching Lester Hayes and dreaming about being him. Then I dreamed about going to UCLA, and I did. And now, my best dream, to win a Super Bowl. I'm pretty lucky."

The camp, in its seventh year, is open to 500. They will work with 60 coaches, players and former players.

"The Heiress," Ruth Goetz and Augustus Goetz's adaptation of Henry James' "Washington Square," is the stage equivalent of a compulsive read. But for the drama to reach beyond its masterful plot into a suppler realm of human vision, it needs a production that's willing to attend to every ambiguous shade of gray. South Coast Repertory's revival -- solid, well-upholstered, relentlessly straightforward -- is not that production.

Heckling baseball umpires is a long-standing tradition. But some of the old mainstay lines -- "You're blind!" and "Kill the umpire!" -- are outdated. Dwight Perry of the Seattle Times found heckledepot.com, a website that offers more modern rips. They include: * "I've got Internet stocks in better shape than you." * "They're putting your strike zone on the back of milk cartons!" * "That's a bad call .... Telemarketer! Telemarketer! Telemarketer!" * "Hey, ump, is this your cellphone?

You might not associate the leisurely, carefully shaded 19th-Century prose of Henry James with electrifying drama--unless you happen to catch Ensemble Theatre's masterful revival of "The Heiress," that is. Adapted in 1947 by Ruth and Augustus Goetz from James' novel "Washington Square," the play proves eloquent and riveting in its depiction of a young woman's evolving independence as painful self-knowledge is foisted on her by a cold-hearted father and a self-centered suitor.

Guard Tony Slaton and safety James Washington of the Rams and Chicago Bears' receiver Dennis McKinnon, headed a list of 12 Plan B free agents signed by the Dallas Cowboys Saturday. Slaton, 28, was mostly a reserve in six seasons with the Rams, although he won the starting right guard position from Duval Love in 1989 after Love's long training camp holdout.
