Actor William Hurt and the lawyer for his former lover screamed at each other during cross-examination today on the opening day of the Oscar winner's palimony trial. Hurt, dressed in a dark pin-striped suit, took the stand without looking at ballerina Sandra Jennings, the mother of his 6-year-old son, Alexander. He sat with his arms crossed and his head down between questions by Jennings's attorney, Richard Golub, about the early days of their relationship. Jennings, 32, claims she and Hurt, 39, lived together as common-law husband and wife for about two years, mostly in New York, and claims half of his $10 million in earnings.

I agree with Carol Jago (Commentary, Sept. 1) that it "takes more than money" to get into college. I have done the applications for law school for my husband, a state university for myself and several applications for each of our four children to the UC and Cal State systems. The last, for a 19-year-old transfer student from a junior college to the university level, was more complex, bewildering, mind-numbing and frustrating than all the others combined. My conclusion: It takes a college education to get a college education.
