Havin' a Ball: Jackie Mason has picked up the ball for New Year's Eve in Times Square. The people who lower the giant ball at the mass outdoor party in New York each New Year's Eve found their tradition endangered because no corporate sponsors had come forward. But Mason agreed Tuesday to cover the unspecified costs after divorce lawyer Raoul Felder arranged a meeting between the comedian and Steve Israel, who owns One Times Square, the building where the ball is dropped.

Cornerback Darryl Henley did his best to put his legal problems behind him for a while Sunday and start anew--as a starter in the Rams' secondary for the first time in nearly a year. But his triumphant return lacked something--a triumph. Henley, facing a Jan. 10 trial on federal drug-trafficking charges, couldn't stop wide receiver John Taylor in the 49ers' 34-19 victory over the Rams at Anaheim Stadium.

Coach Chuck Knox said Friday that linebacker Paul Butcher won't play Sunday. Roman Phifer will replace him in the starting lineup at right linebacker. Free safety Pat Terrell has been downgraded to questionable because of a neck injury. Strong safety Anthony Newman will move over to free safety if Terrell can't play, with Michael Stewart replacing Newman. And that means on pass downs, No.

Cornerback Steve Israel emerged from the Ram locker room Monday afternoon, raised his arms in frustration and shot questions back at reporters in defense of his pass defense. "What else do you guys want to know?" he said. "Yes, we lost to Atlanta. Yes, Andre Rison caught some balls against me. Yes, my technique was bad. What else is there?"

Steve Israel, the league's last second-round pick without a contract, on Sunday ended his 40-day holdout and agreed to a four-year deal with the Rams believed to be worth more than $2 million. Israel was scheduled to fly from Pittsburgh, where he has been staying during the holdout, to Orange County this morning, officially sign the deal, take a physical and possibly make it to the team's practice this afternoon.

Steve Israel has studied the Rams' schedule. He knows they are out there . . . waiting. * Andre Rison. Sterling Sharpe. Jerry Rice. All are just waiting for their shot at Israel, the Rams' cornerback who has started only 13 games in his three-year pro career and has yet to intercept a pass. But Israel just shrugs and asks: "What more could a young cornerback want? Andre Rison, Sterling Sharpe, Jerry Rice. I love it. Each one of those guys will make me a better player.

You want electricity? Steve Israel had the sizzle in him for sure in a game against Southern Mississippi last season, and when he talks about that performance now, his voices crackles with the promise of more. In that game for Pittsburgh, Israel made four solo tackles from his cornerback spot, returned a fumble 83 yards for a touchdown, returned an interception for an 81-yard touchdown and had a 71-yard punt return for a third touchdown called back because of a clipping penalty.

The Rams took a quantum leap in the draft Sunday, beginning their day by selecting Sean Gilbert, the centerpiece defensive lineman they have so long been missing, and clinching the move by agreeing to terms on a long-term contract with him before the night was done. The deal, believed to be worth more than $7 million over five seasons, including a signing bonus of about $3 million, is expected to be finalized and announced this week, possibly as soon as this morning, Ram sources said.
