One in an occasional series. AMIR CURRY lives next door to a scarred and slouching house that has been vacant nearly all of his 14 years. It's a trash-strewn magnet for raccoons that prevents Bella, his family's hyper Yorkie-terrier mix, from using the back yard. Amir's good friend Maliek Robbins, 13, lives a few minutes away on a tidy block off Woodland Avenue, but it, too, sits next to one of Kingsessing's abandoned rowhouses. The boys share something else. "I actually don't know my father," said Amir, a large, affable teen with dreams of becoming an NFL lineman, a barber, or a chef.

I WOULD be appalled if Hampton didn't have standards for business students. If students want to exercise their "right" to express themselves through their hairstyle, they can, just not at the business school. The reality is that MBAs are more than likely going to work in a setting where standards are set by white males. This isn't fair, but it's the truth. As for your example of someone who wears "neatly groomed dreadlocks" (that has an oxymoronic ring to it), the key is that person is PRESIDENT of the firm.

Born in Springfield, Mo., Mr. Fulbright enlisted in the Army Air Corps in 1943.

For Nick Browne, a junior outfielder at Bishop Eustace, the University of Maryland was the best of three worlds: a big-time baseball program that is a managable distance from home with some familiar faces on the roster. On Monday night, Browne, who leads South Jersey in home runs with nine, committed to Maryland on a baseball scholarship. Browne also seriously considered Duke, Lafayette, and Penn. "I wasn't stressing about it, but it was tough making a decision," Browne said.
