Said a Kennel Club spokeswoman, " Scotland Yard are paid a fee by the Kennel Club to carry out these tests. We have had to use forensic testing in the past when there was an allegation that a dog had been dyed."
If a dog had been found to have a trace of powder in its coat, it would have been disqualified. One would hope that the dog's owner would also have been punished, perhaps by being hit with a rolled-up newspaper and told he or she is a bad person.
At The Albany ( N.Y.) Academy, students still marvel over the classic invective that Dan Lende, a freestyler on last year's varsity team, directed at a meet official. Taking exception to a ruling, Lende shouted, "Have we eaten on the insane root that takes the reason prisoner?"
As one might expect of a jock so erudite as to have borrowed from Act I, Scene III of Macbeth, Lende is now swimming for Harvard.
ALL BY HIMSELF
Last week, in an item titled One-on-Five, we told you about Angie Brimage, who scored all 51 of Brighton (Mass.) High's points in a 55-51 loss to Boston English. Well, we should have saved the title, because on Feb. 7 in a game in an accounting-firm league in Charlotte, N.C., Darwin Parks of Peat Marwick Main & Co. held off five guys from Arthur Young & Co. in overtime. Here's how it happened:
Peat Marwick is playing with only five men, the fifth having arrived just 22 seconds before game time.
The score is close throughout the game, but with two minutes left, Peat Marwick player-coach Bob Bertges fouls out. Still, Parks, who's playing with a bruised knee, makes a 12-foot jumper with five seconds, to tie the score at 48-48 and send the game into overtime.
Tim Smith of Peat Marwick fouls out after 40 seconds of OT, and Jeff Hill follows 30 seconds later, with the score again tied.
