It was the kind of game Academy of the New Church junior Savon Goodman expects to be involved in many times when he arrives at Villanova and competes in the Big East: physical and intense, with a down-to-the-wire ending. Wednesday's Friends Schools League playoff semifinal against Abington Friends had a bit of everything, including an 18-minute delay caused when the fire alarm sounded in the third quarter, the result of pizza being overcooked at the concession stand. In a pressure cooker, the second-place Lions, who forced overtime with a 10-2 run at the end of regulation, fought past undersized, third-place Abington Friends, 54-51, in Bryn Athyn.

The president of Bryn Athyn College, who joined the Montgomery County school less than a year ago and was the first to hold the position, has resigned. Christopher Clark submitted his resignation late last month and will leave his post effective May 31, said Bruce Henderson, a spokesman for the college. Clark resigned partly because of the pressures and frustrations involved in the 190-student school's recent efforts to expand its enrollment, Henderson said. Clark, 68, did not return calls seeking comment.

For more than 120 years, Bryn Athyn College was content in its role as one of the smallest schools in the nation. Enrollment was typically between 120 and 160. Students lived a college life surrounded by other members of a religion based on the writings of a Christian mystic. But trustees have made a move that confirms a new era in the Montgomery County college's 132-year history. They have hired its first president to lead it beyond the boundaries of religion. "It's just basically too expensive to provide all the services a college needs for a handful of students," said Christopher Clark, who took over as president in the fall.

It was an unusual recipe: Take one antique Victorian purse and add one American Indian amulet. But it was just the convergence of inspirations that Arlene Wartenberg needed to transform herself into a working artist. A retired college professor, mother of three, and lifelong knitter, Wartenberg, now 73, never imagined she would get serious about crafts. She was already well into an active retirement when she saw a vintage beaded purse in an antiques store and thought she would try to make one, a miniature, and transform it into a necklace like those worn by American Indians.

The same commitment that drove Tristan Smith to become a Bryn Athyn volunteer firefighter at the age of 16 led him to join the Army at the age of 21. He was killed in Iraq on Sunday doing what he believed in, his family and friends said yesterday. Smith, 23, a weapons specialist with the Army's Fourth Infantry Division stationed northwest of Baghdad, was on patrol when an improvised explosive device detonated, said his father, Grant Smith. They last saw him in April, when he returned to Bryn Athyn on leave after five months in Iraq.

What it is: Cairnwood is the restored Beaux Arts-style mansion built by industrialist John Pitcairn in 1895. What we like: Cairnwood offers a glimpse into the lives of Gilded Age tycoons and their families. Guided tours and special events throughout the year provide visitors with the history of the Pitcairns and their family estate. Visitors can tour the mansion and carriage house, the John and Gertrude Pitcairn Archives, and the adjacent Glencairn Museum, a restored estate home that houses a collection of family art collected by Raymond Pitcairn.

It had been some time since I enjoyed a good meal while a nearby phone rang off the hook. The last time was in high school, when dinner theaters were in vogue, and the phone in question was a stage prop. This time, the phone was real (though it had a theatrical r-r-ring) and merely part of the bustling take-out scene. At Ricardo's Restaurant, a cheery 65-seat eatery in one of Bryn Athyn's oldest buildings, you can get take-out as well as unhurried, sit-down meals with excellent service.

A Bryn Athyn art gallery this week abruptly removed six works by a Huntingdon Valley photographer that the gallery director described as "politically inflammatory. " "We did not open this gallery to change the world," said Tracy Cass, director of the Orchard Artworks, explaining why she removed the works by Linda Griffith from an exhibit that opened yesterday. "This was supposed to be about the environment and the abuse of the environment. It wasn't supposed to be pointing fingers, pointing fingers at Bryn Athyn, at Lower Moreland, at Republicans.

The history of the Borough of Bryn Athyn is the story of the creation of a unique community of Christian believers. For almost 100 years, the followers of the Swedenborgian Church of the New Jerusalem (the New Church for short) have been living, learning, and worshiping together within a two-square-mile area in eastern Montgomery County. The foundations of the New Church are built upon the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772), a Swedish scientist, mystic and religious teacher.
