As expected, Ram wide receiver Henry Ellard, tackle Irv Pankey and kicker Mike Lansford became holdouts Sunday night as they failed to report on schedule with the other veterans at the team's training complex at Cal State Fullerton. Not expected was the absence of cornerback LeRoy Irvin, who according to team officials was missing because of "personal reasons." A source, however, said that Irvin has stayed away to state his dissatisfaction over the three-year, $1.

Re "Plan to arm Syrian rebels will take time," June 15 There are no "just" warriors in the Syrian conflict, and there are certainly none that adhere even modestly to the political or moral values that America embodies. The United States should keep out of the Syrian civil war entirely because it's not our fight. Let the warring factions decide among themselves who will oppress the Syrian people. But if we must get involved, the United States should arm the Syrian rebels with only those weapons that we are prepared to have turned against us. After all, it's possible that once the civil war is over, whoever ends up in power will be in opposition to America.

Iraq's President Saddam Hussein isn't above airing a little dirty laundry in an effort to clean up his government. While on a visit to the district governor of Darbandikhan, 180 miles northeast of Baghdad, Hussein was shocked at finding a filthy bathroom and linens in the governor's office and promptly fired him.

Voorhees (6-foot-5, 302 pounds), who could become the first CSUN football player to be drafted, has turned in some startling performances for representatives of some 15 teams. In the 40-yard dash, he consistently has been timed in 4.8 seconds, better than the 4.
