Sarah Knechel braced for the onslaught that follows admission decisions. It usually starts 25 minutes after the decisions are posted. "In the spring, we hate picking up the phone because it's either why didn't I get admitted? I got admitted, why didn't you give me merit money?" said Knechel, 28, associate director of admissions. "Every so often, you'll get a thank you, and those are the calls that make the other ones bearable. " Some applicants who complain have a point, she concedes.

Emil Zarella, 81, a 1924 graduate of Girard College who grew up to head the institution, died Friday at Paoli Memorial Hospital. He lived in St. Davids. Mr. Zarella was born in Philadelphia and was 3 when his father died. At age 8, he was accepted into Girard, where admission was then limited, by the terms of Stephen Girard's will, to fatherless white boys. The U.S. Supreme Court overturned the provision restricting admission to white males in 1968. While attending Girard, Mr. Zarella was known as a good student and athlete, and he set the college's record for the longest home run ever hit. He earned a bachelor's degree at the University of Pennsylvania and pursued graduate studies at Penn and at Temple University.

The special agent who runs the FBI's Philadelphia division will be named assistant director in charge of the bureau's New York City office, possibly as soon as Wednesday, according to a knowledgeable source. The agent, George C. Venizelos, had been considered the front-runner for the New York post, one of the most prominent within the bureau. Spokesmen at the FBI's Washington headquarters and its New York and Philadelphia offices declined to comment late Tuesday. But agents within both field offices were notified of the decision, said the source, who was not authorized to publicly discuss it. For Venizelos, 52, the promotion is a homecoming of sorts.

It's really an honor and I'm sure all of you shared my excitement when The Inquirer announced last week I had been promoted to Senior Executive Columnist for Sports Content. There's nothing like a new title to make a guy feel important, and I'd also like to congratulate colleagues Bob Brookover, the new Vice President for Sports Columnizing, and Mike Sielski, who steps into the role of Director of Sports Opinion/Columns. There's no doubt in mind that we will work together seamlessly to help the department achieve its goals with the structure now in place.
