Frank Maloney, manager of Francis, knows the advertiser, but he won't tell.

Bruce Parkhill, who revitalized the Penn State basketball team when it joined the Big Ten Conference, resigned unexpectedly as coach Wednesday, saying he was burned out.

The book, she said, was written between midnight and 3 a.m., after her nightly broadcast.

Labor Day weekend is upon us, a sure sign that summer has slipped away. For many literary toilers (those who have been frolicking), it also means it's time to take up the quill, activate the electric typewriter or light up the word processor. But there is no reason to be a lonely scribbler. Opportunities now abound via local writing organizations to meet colleagues, make contacts and encounter best-selling authors, screenwriters, agents and editors.

Titus Ivory returned from a first-half ankle sprain Wednesday night to score a career-high 27 points, including four in overtime, as Penn State upset sixth-ranked Illinois, 98-95, at State College, Pa. Penn State Coach Jerry Dunn said that he didn't expect that Ivory would be able to return, but Ivory said he had no doubt. "My teammates have a lot of confidence in me," Ivory said. "Not to be taking anything away from the Illinois guys, but one-on-one I feel I can play with anybody."
