Craig Charron had retired from hockey by the time his uncle's team defeated the Soviet Union in one of the United States' greatest victories on the ice. "I'd been playing hockey since I was 6," Charron recalls. "I got sick of it. I took a year off when I was 11." That was 1980, and from the rafter seats at Lake Placid, N.Y., Charron watched U.S. goalie Jim Craig--Uncle Jim--shut out the Soviets for 10 of the longest minutes in Olympic history.

Jim Craig, whose plaintive search for his father after the 1980 U.S. hockey team's victory at Lake Placid, N.Y., made him a folk hero, hasn't seen much of these Games, but he wishes his successors well. Now 34 and the father of two, Craig works for a company that produces advertising flyers that are inserted into newspapers. He has been too busy to watch much of the U.S. hockey team, but he has a pretty good idea of what the American players are experiencing.

Jim Craig doesn't like the idea that big stocks and small stocks should be an either/or proposition for a mutual fund manager. His employer, Denver-based Janus Group, solved that problem: They gave him both types of funds to run. So far, Craig's shareholders can't complain about his split personality. Both his big-stock Janus Fund and small-stock Janus Venture Fund boasted total returns in excess of 90% in the five years ended June 30--far surpassing the 49% return of the average U.S.

Q. I have a year-old refrigerator with a built-in ice maker. I've noticed lately that the ice cubes have a peculiar garlic odor, which is odd, because I don't have garlic in the freezer and it's rarely in the refrigerator. What could be causing this? A.D. Anaheim A. It's probably not related to the ice maker, says Tom Houlihan of Orange County Appliance Parts in Garden Grove. Odor problems with ice are usually caused by the water that's used.

1-4-1. Wow, I bet Herb Brooks is spinning in his grave over the effort, or lack of, the U.S. team put forth in Italy. How about giving the game back to the kids so maybe we could see another father or mother share in the joy as Jim Craig's dad did? JOE MASSARO Rancho Cucamonga Well, it appears as long as USA Hockey continues to use millionaires we can stop waiting for any miracles. DON RUSHFORTH Chino Hills The lack of buzz surrounding the U.S. men's hockey team had more to do with the roster USA Hockey selected than with the popularity of the sport in America, as suggested by J.A.

In response to your Aug. 9 editorial "The Oil Shortage That Need Not Be," we would like to state that we in the oil industry realize many motorists are angry about rising gasoline prices and that they are wondering whether the large oil companies have acted responsibly. The answer to that is yes, even though that may not be widely understood by the public. No one can speak for every refiner, every wholesaler or every retailer. In the entire nationwide system, there may be some evidence of overreaction to a volatile market.
