The blaring music, the spectators peeking out of store windows, the excited screams of more than 500 would-be models. Jennifer Shapiro, merchandising manager for Seventeen magazine and judge of its "Trend Tour" model call, had experienced it all before. Still, one thing amazed her. "I can't get over the shoes!" she shouted, her voice almost overpowered by booming speakers that lined a makeshift catwalk inside Willow Grove Park mall Wednesday night. "I could never walk in those shoes.

Painter Steve Killian knew from experience how deadly power lines could be. So 50 feet up on a catwalk yesterday at the Lee Park office complex, he watched carefully as carpenter Charlie Siciliano worked with a power drill within inches of a buzzing electrical wire. Then Siciliano raised his head. "I saw him look at me and his baseball cap touch the wire," Killian said yesterday. "Then he went down, and his whole body started smoking. " Siciliano, a 24-year-old Fishtown man, died instantly from 7,620 volts transmitted from an uninsulated line above the Lee Park office complex on Hector Street just after 3 p.m. "It was obvious he was dead," said Whitemarsh Fire Marshal Calvin Bonenberger, who had climbed up a 100-foot fire ladder to the catwalk by 3:20 p.m. "The electricity passed right through his body to the metal catwalk.

The Skleno Civic Club was formed in 1937 as a German-American social club, but these days it's promoting sex and not sauerkraut. It's been a thorn to city officials and Fishtown residents since it was reincarnated a few weeks ago as a strip joint called "Catwalk" at the north end of the Delaware Avenue nightclub district. Termed a nuisance by Fishtown residents, Catwalk has presented a special problem to city officials. Unlike other near-nude dance joints that have opened recently, Catwalk doesn't have to pay taxes on the drinks it sells or the $10 membership fee it charges.

Along North Delaware Avenue, across the street from where Interstate 95 roars above Montgomery Avenue and five Budweiser horses gallop off a billboard headlong into traffic, right at the eastern edge of Fishtown, sits a club. A private club. A club, according to its charter, that is dedicated to making people of German descent into better citizens. One dedicated to promoting an interest in local, state and federal government, and to maintaining a clubhouse for its members.

Federal authorities have issued $4,500 in fines against Whitemarsh-based American Building Contractors in connection with the March 12 electrocution of an employee. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration cited four violations, all in the "serious" category. OSHA ruled that the contracting firm had failed to take proper precautions and train employees before sending them into hazardous conditions. Last month, Charlie P. Siciliano Jr., 24, of the Fishtown section of Philadelphia, was killed instantly when he brushed his head against an uninsulated 7,620-volt power line while working at the Lee Park office complex in Whitemarsh.

No one noticed the intruder creeping along the darkened catwalk 15 feet above the Elfreth's Alley courtyard except Spencer. Spencer, a white spitz who isn't big or ferocious but likes to bark, went to work. He sounded the alarm. Within minutes, the intruder was driven off. But also within minutes he was dead, shot by police when he tried to gain control of a plainclothes officer's weapon while she was trying to arrest him, police said. Carlos Leon, 32, whose last known address was on Falls Road in Levittown, was pronounced dead on arrival early yesterday at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital of three bullet wounds to his chest.

In its rehearsal spaces and on its main stage, the venerated Walnut Street Theatre currently resembles a jungle gymlike maze of elevated catwalks and open portals - all for Peter and the Starcatcher , which opens Thursday. Peter is such a massive, madly active production that, for the cast to rehearse adequately, a replica of the huge, multilevel, Rube Goldbergian set on the main stage, all ladders, paths, and openings, had to be built in the fourth-floor rehearsal space, for which, in the words of director Bill Van Horn, "rail heights and step lengths were cut in half, to get used to the real estate.

"We have one more stop before heading back to Izmir," said Ahmet, our tour guide. I was surprised, because I was ready to go back to the hotel. We had been touring the Turkish countryside for 10 hours, and my sweaty clothes and the dirt between my toes were making me very cranky. A shower was calling me and I needed a tall glass of cold water. No historical site or shop could be worth visiting at this time of day. I glanced at Amy, my college-age daughter sitting next to me in our chauffeur-driven car. I rolled my eyes, but I didn't say anything because I didn't want to insult the driver and our guide with my refusal.

Defensive end Jevon Kearse hammed it up while posing in the throwback uniform the Eagles will wear for their Sept. 23 home game, against the Detroit Lions, to celebrate their 75th anniversary this season. The uniform was yellow and blue, the colors of the inaugural Eagles team in 1933 after the Frankford Yellow Jackets went bankrupt. Kearse didn't care that he was used only as a model during yesterday's news conference at the NovaCare Complex detailing the ways the Eagles would commemorate the anniversary.

Delaware River Port Authority officials insisted that the PATCO High-Speed Line is safe despite yesterday's smoky motor failure that forced 35 evacuated commuters onto a Ben Franklin Bridge catwalk. The 6 a.m. drama that spewed smoke and sparks from the front engine of the Philadelphia-bound three-car train had nothing to do with PATCO's aging fleet, officials said. No one was hurt. "I'm assuring the public that they are safe," said John J. Matheussen, chief executive officer of the authority.
