It was summer, and picnickers sprawled in the high grass by the side of Route Departmentale 112, enjoying their baguettes stuffed with cheese and the long days filled with warm sunshine. Grain, high and green, trembled in the tranquil fields of the Meuse heights as the breeze swept over it. Black-and-white dappled cows grazed in their pastures. The scene was serene and beautiful, the epitome of the prosperity of rural France.

Seven nuns in a Carmelite monastery in Morristown, N.J., who support the leadership of their prioress say the five dissident nuns who have gained national publicity are giving an inaccurate picture of the situation. In an interview with Maura Rossi in Thursday's issue of The Beacon, the weekly newspaper of the Paterson Catholic Diocese, the seven nuns said they have underlined their support for Mother Theresa Hewitt by petitioning Bishop Frank J.

In the 80 years since he arrived in New York with only the clothes on his back, Antonio Rodriguez has retired from two different careers, served in two World Wars and seen 15 U.S. presidents. In August, Rodriguez, of Torrance, celebrated his 100th birthday. And last month he received a medal from the Department of Veterans Affairs commemorating the 75th anniversary of the end of World War I. About 100 living WWI veterans in Southern California have been awarded the medals.

In times of war, they have proved safer than radios, more nimble than humans, more fuel-efficient than aircraft. Depending on the price of birdseed. Their exploits, though, have tended to go underappreciated here in London, where Mayor Ken Livingstone's long-running war with the lowly pigeon over who controls the territory of Trafalgar Square has tended to obscure the otherwise heroic stature of the ubiquitous waddlers.

"I would like to speak to you in a quarter of a year about who will have been proven right in the American public -- the President or his critics," Kohl said during a wide-ranging 75-minute interview with The Times. "I am betting on the President."

The white-brick monastery across a busy street from a Shell service station seems an unlikely place for a confrontation that now involves Mother Teresa, the Nobel Peace Prize winner, and that ultimately may be decided by Pope John Paul II. It is a dispute so heated that police have been summoned twice to separate feuding nuns.

"I've always told all of you I was not nearly as radical as some of my friends," Rep. Newt Gingrich said in a post-election speech in which he backed away from a colleague's proposal to scrap the federal income tax in favor of a national sales tax. But the very next day, the Georgia Republican who is in line to become Speaker of the House took a strikingly different tack.

On Veterans Day, Americans are asked to do something for the country besides voting and paying taxes: We are enjoined to think of those who fought in faraway places -- the Philippines, North Africa, Europe, Vietnam and Iraq. Most of them came home, but some did not, even in death. The remains of more than 120,000 war dead rest in American military cemeteries abroad, beneath rows of white marble crosses and Stars of David.
