Gretzkys POIGNANT Trip
The red and white flag of the maple leaf flapped in the early-autumn snow flurries and the brisk morning breeze. This was hockey weather in the western Canadian city where Wayne Gretzky was a National Hockey League rookie almost two decades ago.

Its not that he plans to retire after 19 N.H.L. seasons and 20, over all, in the big leagues, although that is a possibility. But this could be the last season in Edmonton for the Oilers, who brought an 18-year-old Gretzky over from the World Hockey Association when the two leagues merged before the 1979-80 season..

Poignant Faces of the Soon-to-Be-Dead
For four years starting in 1975, the Khmer Rouge, under Pol Pot, rounded up Cambodians at S-21, a converted high school in Tuol Sleng, a district of Phnom Penh, where they were tortured and killed. In all, more than 14,000 people were imprisoned there. Seven survived. Left behind, after the Vietnamese drove the Khmer Rouge from power, were reams of documents and thousands of black-and-white photographs, mug shots. The routine, evidently, was for inmates to be photographed upon their arrival, then starved and tortured until admitting to whatever crimes against the state the torturers wanted them to admit to, after which they were trucked to fields, forced to dig their graves and shot or bludgeoned to death. Steeped in paranoia, the Khmer Rouge killed many of their own at S-21. Many never knew why they were arrested. Some were Khmer Rouge soldiers whose treason was to let slip that they missed their families. For this, wives and children were often arrested and killed.. Michael Kimmelman reviews exhibition at Museum of Modern Art of 22 photographs that Khmer Rouge took of people they imprisoned, tortured and killed at their S-21 center in Tuol Sleng in late 1970s; photo (M)
