When Jimmy Clark died in his race car 20 years ago today--at age 32--he was probably the world's best driver. Some people in racing still call him the best of all time. It can't be proved. In the different eras of auto racing, there have been too many other great drivers, starting with Tazio Nuvolari and Barney Oldfield. A.J. Foyt and Al Unser Sr. have won the Indianapolis 500 four times. Juan Manuel Fangio won five world championships in four kinds of cars.

Near the entrance to the U.S. Olympic Committee's training center in Colorado Springs is a bronze sculpture of a fallen boxer, struggling to rise. The inscription reads: "Down, but not out; "Lost, but not forgotten." It's a tribute to those who perished in amateur boxing's greatest tragedy, the crash near Warsaw of a Polish airliner 19 years ago. It claimed the lives of all 87 passengers, 14 of them members of a U.S. boxing delegation.

It was daring and surprising enough to enrich the rest of the set, which wasn't all that daring or surprising--at least until the final encore, when Harry saluted two New York influences with versions of the Velvet Underground's "Waiting for the Man" and the Ramones' "Pet Sematary."

Memphis State did, however, and the Tigers are among the last 16 teams competing for the NCAA title for the fourth straight year. A 67-66 overtime victory Sunday against Alabama Birmingham in the Midwest Regional second round did the trick this time.

Deborah Harry, who plays the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano Saturday night, opened her show at the Country Club in Reseda on Monday with a touch of restraint, rather than with the expected bang. It was daring and surprising enough to enrich the rest of the set, which was not all that daring or surprising--at least until the final encore, when Harry saluted two New York influences with versions of the Velvet Underground's "Waiting for the Man" and the Ramones' "Pet Sematary."
