A principal suspended after he threatened to ban mixed-race couples from the high school prom was reinstated Thursday by the school board. The board overrode the recommendation of the county school superintendent in its 4-2 vote to reinstate Hulond Humphries as principal of Randolph County High School. A white member of the Randolph County School Board, Joe Belue, resigned immediately after joining the lone black member of the panel in voting to fire Humphries.

Six undefeated schools will lose Saturday. That's not a prediction, that's a fact. The pruning process features 12 of the 33 remaining unbeaten schools playing each other. This isn't a four-out-of-seven sport, it's cutthroat. Others may also fall. The "0" in USC's record is at risk at 2-1 Arizona State. Clemson has to host one-loss Florida State. California is 3-0 but is playing at Washington this week, not home against Presbyterian. Wisconsin should be 4-0 after mowing over a South Dakota team with a coach, Ed Meierkort, who says he's going to ask Badgers quarterback Russell Wilson for his autograph.

A federal appeals court says a recent Supreme Court ruling on school prayer does not stop Alabama students from talking about religion or praying publicly at school, as long as it is voluntary. The U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta last week upheld its earlier ruling in Alabama's school prayer case, throwing out parts of a Montgomery federal judge's order that had limited religious expression by students in DeKalb County.

You might already have heard of Michael Kearney, who moved to the San Fernando Valley last year after graduating from college. He is an unusual member of the Class of '94. For instance: * He is 10 years old, the Guinness-certified world's youngest college graduate. * His ambition is to become a TV game show host. Though he has years to change his mind, it is not an idle fancy.

With hog-calling and pigs' feet-eating contests between innings, the minor league Fort Worth Cats recently staged "You Might Be a Redneck Night." The ballpark promotion seemingly was a hit with everyone except the Cats' opponent, the Jackson (Miss.) Senators, who became offended when the public-address announcer informed the crowd that it's a good clue you're a redneck if you: "Manage the Jackson Senators; Play for the Jackson Senators; Live in Jackson, Miss.; All of the above."

Speaking to news reporters at UC Irvine, Futrell said President Reagan's five-year tenure has been marked by good discussion of educational issues but his Administration has failed to follow through on programs.

1. No one except maybe coaches Mike Riley and Jim Mora thought a must-see Pac-12 game Sept. 22 would be Oregon State at UCLA, schools that combined to go 9-17 last year. The Beavers and Bruins, though, are undefeated and have already posted huge wins against Big Ten powers Wisconsin and Nebraska. 2. Clemson at Florida State will live up to the preseason hype as the showdown between the Atlantic Coast Conference's top two teams. These schools, like Alabama and Louisiana State in the Southeastern Conference West, have separated themselves as the class of the conference following Coastal division favorite Virginia Tech's stunning loss at Pittsburgh.

A judge set the stage for an overhaul of the way Alabama funds its public schools, ruling the state has failed to provide an "equitable and adequate" education for all children. "The quality of educational opportunities available to a child in the public schools of Alabama depends upon the fortuitous circumstance of where that child happens to reside and attend school," Circuit Judge Eugene Reese said last week.
