The soundtrack to the film "Reality Bites" is a hit-making bonanza! The latest chart-climber off this disc is Lisa Loeb's and Nine Stories' "Stay (I Missed You)." The song resembles a stream-of-conscious- ness conversation between two lovers. They are unclear about the future of their relationship. Their biggest problem seems to be a lack of understanding about what each wants from the relationship. One accuses the other of hearing only what she wants to hear and never listening well. When they do try to break up, the girl dis- covers that she misses the guy. He asks her to stay. Putting all of this together, the situation help each individual focus on what he or she wants. During their time apart each person could con- sider these questions honestly: 1. Do I really want to work at solving the prob- lems between us, or am I just addicted to the ongoing drama? 2. If making communication more effective is my goal, what must I do? 3. Ifa magic genie could suddenly pop out of a bottle and offer to do anything to make the relation" ship fun and loving again, what would I ask him to do? 4. How well am I listening to my partner? What does this situation look like from his or her point-of" view? 5. What is all of this teaching me about myself and how I interact in relationships? Perhaps the most important question from my list concerns listening. This involves temporarily setting aside our own agendas in order to listen. (We can listen without surrendering our own values.) All of us can practice listening with more attention and openness. (Your comments are always welcome, please address: Charlie Martin, RR 3, Box 182, Rock" port, IN 47635.)

Director George Miller embroiders the playful antics of the personable seal Memo to Los Angeles church employees hints at end to ball strike LOS ANGELES (CNS) -- Could the end of the major league baseball strike be in sight? An Aug. 15 memorandum to chancery employees from the Los Angeles Archdiocese ad- vises those employees with tickets to the Aug. 31 =Chancery Night" baseball game at Dodger Stadium to hang on to them. According to the Dodger Group Sales Office, we should not anticipate canceling our date at this time. They believe the strike will not last more than two weeks, thereby end- ing Aug. 26th," the memo states. In the meantime, the memo urges hopeful employees to "keep a good thought and pray" that the game will go on as scheduled. The players went out on strike Aug. 11 to keep team owners from instituting a salary cap system aimed at controlling the economics of the sport. Federal mediators were called in to help the two sides come to an agreement. In Baltimore Archbishop William H. Keeler said he hoped the strike would end soon because "the World Series and the pope's visit would be a great double header."

Pope John Paul II is slated to celebrate a midday Mass there the same day, at the end of a four-day visit to the United States and United Nations. As the strike began the "O's" were still clear pennant con- tenders. With a 63-49 record they were just six-and-a-half games behind the league-leading New York Yankees and only two-and-a-half games behind the 66-47 Cleve- land Indians in a battle for the new wildcard slot in the restruc- tured pest-season playoffs. =Here in Baltimore we are still rooting for the Orioles," Archbishop Keeler said in an Aug. 16 statement. On a more serious level he lamented the work stoppage not only for the players, owners and fans but for all the smaller busi- nesses and workers that the strike affects economically. =Especially here in Balti- more we are concerned about many people whose work de- pends on the baseball season going forward," said the arch- bishop, who is also president of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops. "For some, baseball-associated business is their livelihood. For others, it means second jobs to make ends meet and for college stu- dents, summer jobs." with several subplots about prickly individuals and com- munity misunderstandings in a sentimental story stressing positive parent-child relation- ships.
