"This is a totally new tool," said radiology professor Joie P. Jones, who has spent 10 years working with ultrasound on rats and believes that another five years may be needed before it can be tested on humans.

The love affair Frankie Beverly & Maze have going with their fans can make an uninitiated observer feel like a voyeur. The affair was on full force Friday night at the Beverly Theatre, where Beverly and crew opened their six-show weekend by delivering wave after wave of mellow, romance-laced funk. Unless you were a hard-core Maze fan--and there were plenty on hand for Friday's early show, along with lots of empty seats--it probably felt like much ado about nothing.

A New England shoe chain walked to the top of the Forbes 1989 list of the "200 Best Small Companies in America." Insurers, specialty retailers and restaurants dominated the rankings but California led all states with the most companies on the Forbes list. Boston-based J. Baker, a newcomer to the list, took top honors with the highest return on equity--a five-year average of 100%, Forbes reported in its Nov. 13 issue.

I am writing to object in the strongest possible terms to Bettijane Levine's grotesque misquotations and mischaracterizations of my views in her article on veterinary fees and services ("What Price a Pal?"

Friday night, when Hershiser's pitches sometimes wafted between wild and wicked and the St.

The bench, long a Detroit Piston luxury, today becomes a necessity for Game 3 of the NBA finals, just in time to add to the problems heading into Portland Memorial Coliseum, the site of a 16-year losing streak. Coach Chuck Daly had all but decided Friday that Dennis Rodman would give way to Mark Aguirre in the starting lineup, Rodman's left ankle having worsened again.

You don't want to say Friday night's Warriors-Lakers matchup lacked something. Let's just say its highlight went unnoticed. It happened when Kasha, the bear cub from the Moscow Circus who performed between quarters, got loose and ran across the street, with his handlers running after him screaming in Russian. It isn't known if the cub hoped to defect, but he was recaptured in a nearby parking lot.

The computer scratched Dave Hill from the second round of the senior division of the Tournament of Champions Friday at La Costa. It was a bit premature. Despite a painful tendon injury in his right elbow, the first-round co-leader not only played, he took over sole possession of first place by a stroke over Miller Barber. Hill shot a par 72 for a 36-hole total of 140. Barber, leading most of the round, finished with four 5s, losing three strokes to par. The man formerly known as Mr.
