Most museums have fakes in their collections. This is a reality to which they don't want to bring attention. Jane MacLaren Walsh, however, loves to turn the material legacy of the past over and over in her strong hands. As an art detective, it's both her research and her reverie. She fingers a tube of jade as narrow as a soda straw and wonders about its maker, an artist who worked some 3,500 years ago.

The California State University trustees will attempt to purchase up to 550 acres of Ventura's Taylor Ranch for the University Center at Ventura. Most of us are aware of the huge cost and legal roadblocks. Nevertheless, we feel this site is the best one. But it will take a little more than tons and tons of nickels and dimes. During my high school days in my village a long, long time ago, we youngsters discussed how a group of Spanish settlers came across the ocean, landed in the Caribbean and started the first university of the Americas, the University of Santo Domingo, in 1538.

College students who harbor dreams of a career in the broadcast and entertainment fields are apt to follow a tried-and-true path. First, they finish their college educations. Then, they try to get jobs in radio. Eventually, they hope to move on to television--and, if their luck holds out, the motion picture industry. But to University of San Diego student Cristina Luria, those dreams are already behind her.

The international flavor of some of the exhibits at Walt Disney World's Epcot Center isn't just a fantasy. It's real. Since the center opened in October, 1982, more than 1,000 young people at a time from 10 nations have spent six months to a year staffing the 11 spectacular cultural pavilions at this unique global exposition.

It seemed like something straight out of Indiana Jones--complete with the daring, award-winning archeologist and the happy ending. Bootless and weaponless except for one small pocketknife, five archeologists spent two rainy nights in the dense Guatemalan rain forest after escaping local Indians who had attacked them to protest removal of a Maya monument, the leader of the group said Tuesday.

When Four Forty Blast walked onto the track for his first race on May 9, the colt with the impressive breeding quickly turned center stage into a circus. As a full brother of last year's All-American Futurity finalist, Holland Ease, Four Forty Blast had all eyes--and most of the money--on him. The colt, however, had other ideas. He dumped jockey Kip Didericksen during the post parade and ran about 200 yards toward the barn area before the gate crew caught him and put the rider back up.

To see how Mexico's garment industry is stumbling against global competition, look no further than Textile City. This modern industrial park about 65 miles east of the capital was the nation's response to the growing challenge from Asia. The park's founders planned a specialized factory town similar to those in China, where manufacturers would cluster together.

William J. "Willie" Folan is looking for a 2,000-year-old road. Several of them. An American archeologist who works for the local Universidad Autonoma de Campeche, Folan has been excavating this remote jungle site of a major Maya city since 1982. Discovered in 1931 but largely ignored until Folan initiated his work, the Calukmul site is an archeological treasure trove--to date, it has yielded 114 engraved upright stone slabs, called stelae, more than any other Maya site.
