It seems to me that it is now time for the Republican Congress to begin practicing what they preach. Shall we begin by assuming that Newt Gingrich will be using the royalties obtained from the sale of his books to invest in his own private charities to solve America's social problems?

Jerry Davis had been chief executive of Southern Pacific Rail Corp., California's biggest railroad, only a few weeks when he faced his first crisis: Heavy rains battering the state in March damaged a bridge near Red Bluff that blocked the railroad's critical route along Interstate 5. A 38-year industry veteran, Davis reacted with dispatch, deploying troops to repair the bridge and arranging clearances with other railroads to allow SP trains to detour around the washed-out areas.

In a year in which nary a rookie figured to make the Padre 25-man roster, Jerry Davis has beaten the odds in a very big way. The 26-year-old from Trenton, N.J., will be starting in left field and batting leadoff when the Padres begin the defense of their National League championship against the San Francisco Giants at 1:05 today. Certainly, he did get a couple of breaks. He is starting because (a) Carmelo Martinez is injured and (b) the Giants are starting left-hander Atlee Hammaker.

Early every morning, Padre players march single file into a makeshift weight room at their hotel. Not everyone lifts a finger, though. "Me lift weights?" Kurt Bevacqua said. "Never." Instead, Bevacqua -- and most of the other guys -- waltz in there to pick up their meal money. "Another day, another $55," Dave Dravecky was saying as he left. But that weight room is outfielder Jerry Davis' meal ticket out of the minor leagues. On Jan.

I read with great disappointment your June 30 editorial, "20 Years of Isolation Is Enough." It appears that The Times has now begun using the disrespectful rhetoric of the extreme right. President Clinton is accused of "ducking" the draft. The Times should be reminded that President Clinton has openly acknowledged that he did not support America's policy in Vietnam. Having a legitimate student deferment and exercising the right to demonstrate against something which he felt was unjust does not meet the definition of "ducking."

A six-month investigation at the County Jail has uncovered narcotics trafficking, money laundering and attempted bribery, officials said. Four inmates and seven relatives and friends of prisoners were arrested in the sting operation that used a guard to detect which inmates tried to buy freedom or smuggle drugs into jail, investigators said. The sting was launched in January when an inmate asked the guard to shuttle drugs into the facility, said sheriff's Sgt. Jerry Davis.

Terry Kennedy had a three-run homer Sunday to lead the Padres to a 6-3 exhibition win over the Chicago Cubs. It was only the fourth exhibition victory for the defending National League champions in 15 games. Andy Hawkins, whose pitching in the World Series was the team's sole highlight, allowed one run in six innings to gain the victory.
