The adopted son of former Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu was released from prison Friday for the first time since the December revolution that led to the overthrow of his father and the execution of both his parents. Valentin Ceausescu, unlike his playboy younger brother, Nicu, stayed away from politics and held no special rank during his father's oppressive 25-year rule. He still faces trial next month on a minor charge of failing to pay rent for state-owned housing.

It was the final game of the season, and the Scornicesti soccer team needed a big victory to be promoted to Romania's second division. To no one's surprise, a very big victory was what it got. Scornicesti, the team from a small town that happened to be the home of Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, won that last match of the 1977-78 season 18-0.

It is a rainy-misty morning in late spring and at the Stadio Comunale a mongrel puppy is racing around the soccer field where Brescia's second division team is practicing. The players are halfheartedly stretching on the grass, and--grateful for the diversion--allow the puppy to clamber over them with his muddy paws. The brown and black dog, Rocky, belongs to someone who works at the stadium and the players accept him as a mascot, boxing his ears and playfully tugging his wagging tail.

He basked as sycophants proclaimed him the "Genius of the Carpathians," but Nicolae Ceausescu will be remembered instead as the doddering tyrant whose incomprehensible belief that he could stay the same while all around him changed finally cost him his life. Even as he carefully crafted an image of independence from his neighbors in what used to be called the Soviet Bloc, the longtime Romanian leader built a family dynasty and ruthlessly insisted on unquestioning obedience from his own subjects.
