A fund-raising effort by parents and boosters has prompted Colorado State University to reinstate men's baseball and two other sports which were discontinued at the end of the spring semester, CSU President Philip Austin announced today. To date, the group has raised more than $100,000 in cash contributions and pledges. "We are impressed by the fund-raising efforts of supporters of Colorado State baseball and women's golf and women's tennis," Austin said. "Cash contributions and pledges solicited by the group have convinced us the money is now in place to reinstate these programs."

The Library of Congress called the Firesign Theatre "the Beatles of Comedy" when its 1970 album "Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me the Pliers" was selected for the National Recording Registry. An apt comparison, considering that, along with contemporaries Monty Python in Britain, the searing and psychedelic satirical troupe helped invent a literary brand of album comedy that lodged itself in the culture of college students across the country. The group paved the way for later arrivals such as Cheech & Chong, "Saturday Night Live" and Second City.

The University of Connecticut admitted its men's basketball program committed major NCAA recruiting violations and imposed its own sanctions, including two years of probation and the loss of one scholarship for the next two seasons. But the school said the evidence does not support the NCAA's allegation that Coach Jim Calhoun , who has won two national titles with the Huskies, failed to promote an atmosphere for compliance. In a report released Friday, the school acknowledged its basketball staff made telephone calls and sent text messages that broke NCAA rules, as cited by the NCAA in a May report that followed a 15-month investigation.
