Edward J. Rollins, who created a furor by claiming he schemed to suppress the turnout of black voters in the New Jersey gubernatorial election, has agreed to run a black businessman's Senate campaign in Pennsylvania. Joseph Watkins said Thursday he wanted to hire Rollins despite the controversy because "Ed has a great political background and knows how to win races, and I wanted him on my team." Watkins, 40, is a Philadelphia business consultant and a Baptist minister.

It has always been a problem finding attractive furniture to fill the corner of a room, but in the 18th century, the problem was solved with the corner chair. The chair had one leg in front and one in back, two on the sides and a rounded back for comfort. It was called by many names, including roundabout, corner half-moon, desk chair or smoking chair. It was probably used primarily by men because the position of the leg required an unladylike straddle.
