When young men’s designer Maurice. Malone showed up in Flushing, Queens, last week to play basketball with children of the Boys Club of Flushing, he had what he thought was some disappointing news­­–because of a recent sprained ankle, he would be unable to play.

The kids weren’t at all disappointed. Malone’s mere presence, along with autographs and free cassette players, was excitement enough. And you should have heard the questions from the precocious adolescents: overseas expansion, multimedia vehicles and similar queries all came from the eight-to-13-year-olds.
