For James E. Winner Jr., crime--and the fear it spawns--most assuredly pays. Over the years, Winner has sold women's clothing, chemicals and keyboard organs. But it took a steel steering-wheel lock, designed to prevent car theft, to make his fortune. The lock--shaped something like a police nightstick and called, appropriately, the Club--first came on the market in 1986. It was distributed by Winner and a secretary from this fraying steel town in the hills north of Pittsburgh.

There is nothing like a long, steep hill in the middle of a marathon for Jim Knaub, winner of the Los Angeles Marathon wheelchair division in 1989, 1991 and '92. Last year, Knaub pulled away from the pack at the seventh mile, climbing one of the course's tallest hills. "You know when you were a kid and you didn't like vegetables?" Knaub asked.

Roman Ruler's only win in a race around two turns came against three suspect opponents in the Norfolk on Oct. 3 in Arcadia.

The U.S. Tennis Assn. and CBS network officials were breathing a bit more easily here Monday night, after Andre Agassi breezed past his first opponent in the opening night session of the U.S. Open. Agassi beat Colombian Mauricio Hadad, 6-3, 6-3, 6-2, in a match that had all the drama of a Brooke Shields' movie. Which was just the way the people who run this tournament, the USTA, and the people who really run this tournament, CBS, want it.

At times it may seem like it, but not everyone bashes Jerry Tarkanian. Columnist Linda Robertson of the Miami Herald had this to say about the beleaguered Nevada Las Vegas basketball coach: "I like Jerry Tarkanian. Heresy, I know. The guy's a bad character. A bad dresser. "But he has some things in common with Thomas Paine, Billie Jean King, Ralph Nader, Spike Lee, Rosa Parks--people unafraid to say the emperor has no clothes. "He's a maverick, anti-hero. Rebel with a cause.
