[Thumb Up]To the Black Tennis & Sports Foundation and its chairman, Arthur Ashe, for launching a program to provide grants to promising minority and disadvantaged junior tennis players for training expenses and coaching assistance.

[Thumb Up]To the University of Connecticut, for dropping its 125-pound weight limit for female cheerleaders, after a woman who was kicked off the squad for being five pounds overweight filed a complaint with a state commission. The Huskies have no weight limit for male cheerleaders.

[Thumb Down]To the NAIA, for not waiving a rule and granting Nebraska Wesleyan senior Tim Miller a fifth season of eligibility. Miller played in five of nine football games last fall before being called to serve in the gulf war. The NAIA says that anyone who plays in more than half his team's games has played a full season.
