When Juan Cave first went out for the St. Joseph's Prep track and field team during the spring of 2002, he strongly felt that every Friday should be a day of relaxation. That meant no high jumping, no speed drills. And yoga? What did yoga have to do with track and field, Cave wondered. At first, Cave never saw a correlation between yoga and the high jump. And really, how could you blame him? But twisting his body in awkward positions while learning various breathing techniques is exactly what Cave, a junior and one of the Catholic League's most gifted high jumpers, has done every Friday afternoon since his freshman year.

RUTH MORLEY, 79, has been the go-to Gal Friday and every other day at the Klein Jewish Community Center in Bustleton since 1975. So her retirement last week filled her 10th boss, president/CEO Andre Krug, with sadness - even though, as a parting gift, Morley gave him the childhood accordion she played "Lady of Spain" on at Tony Grant's "Stars of Tomorrow" on the Steel Pier in Atlantic City. "Now, I'm going to be crying," Krug told the Daily News . "I'm going to try to find somebody who has her creative juices, but I'm not sure I can. " Those creative juices, Krug said, included Morley's profitably renting the Klein JCC's theater to a wide range of acts, one of which made the late 1990s unforgettable.

ROYAL OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS ON SUBURBAN READERS' DOORS Britain's Queen Mother is advertising for a butler in a suburban local newspaper because she wants to give job opportunities to unemployed men living outside London. "Under Butler required for Royal Household in London. Please apply to Comptroller, Clarence House," said the ad in the Reading Evening Post this week. The butler's tasks include serving food, opening the door and answering the telephone at the 95-year-old Queen Mother's London residence.

Melting snow makes a dirty cave over a subway grate at Broad Street and Ridge Avenue. That subway heat should get a boost from on high today, with temperatures expected to climb well into the 40s. The weather won't be all that great, though, with little sun expected. Tomorrow's forecast calls for clouds, wind, rain and temperatures in the 50s.

Cheese of the Month A little "cave time" can be a good thing, especially if you're a cheese. Consider this spectacular two-year-old Swiss Gruyère from Emmi: the aging transforms the mild waxiness of a standard Gruyère (usually about five months old) into a far more intense experience. The texture of a firm, smooth slice is densely creamy, but also has the salty crunch of protein crystals sparking in every bite. The whey crunchies come about when the cheese's curds are heated and pressed.

PETRA, Jordan - We knew the night would be a little different than expected when at check-in Mahmoud cheerfully informed us, "I've upgraded you to a cave. " That was our introduction to staying at a Bedouin camp in Jordan. We had visions of dusty tents with Persian rugs underfoot and the odd camel lumbering by. This was true enough, but we were directed to our cave, a hole in the wall (literally) that barely had room for a floor mat, with enough striped pillows to fill a Martha Stewart home furnishings catalog.

Part of a street in the city's Richmond section collapsed last night, opening a crater that swallowed a van and resulted in the evacuation of 18 families, authorities said. The cave-in occurred on Thompson Street just south of Clearfield Street shortly before 6 p.m., and was accompanied by a roar that several residents said sounded like an explosion, according to authorities. Police and firefighters as well as representatives of the Philadelphia Gas Works and the city Water Department rushed to the scene but found no evidence of an explosion, authorities said.

In some places it plunges almost vertically from ground level, diving 1,000 feet through the earth: an eons-old, 75-foot-thick slab of rock the color and bulk of a whale. In other spots, just south of here, for example, it rises toward the surface, leveling out and breaching the rolling green pastures and fields of young wheat and corn. Its existence has enabled the formation of one of the most beautiful caves in the state. And it has promoted the creation of one of the most famous trout streams in the country.

It may not be every woman's fantasy to be surrounded by gyrating, nearly naked men - most women want their men to clean the bathroom or pick up after themselves without being asked. But a nightclub dedicated to flaunting bathroom-scrubbing men wouldn't be much fun, would it? So the Cave (on Delaware Avenue near Spring Garden Street) has filled the role by giving women a wicked night out with buff, handsome men, all more than willing to get their groove on just for fun. For a $10 cover, women can enjoy a floor show featuring an Army guy, a cowboy, or a regular suit-and-tie guy. A specialty of the house is a lap dance.
