A LBUQUERQUE, N.M. - A 15-year-old boy remained in custody Sunday night as detectives tried to piece together what led to the shooting of five people, including three young children, who were found dead in a home in a rural area outside of the city.

A chaplain who publicly criticized Lincoln University's recent handling of an alleged fraternity hazing incident said yesterday that his contract with the school was not renewed in retaliation for speaking out. The Rev. Clarence L. James was notified this week that his one-year contract would not be renewed June 30. He was placed on immediate administrative leave with pay until then, and given 30 days to vacate his university housing. Mr. James was one of a handful of staff and students calling for the university to actively investigate hazing incidents after a student was injured in February during an alleged hazing incident that involved Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity members.

Bruce McDonald, the 76ers' chaplain for 14 years, conducted his usual pregame Bible study Saturday. Just as he always has. But McDonald seemed genuinely startled by a story in the New York Times that repeated comments made by the Knicks' Charlie Ward and Allan Houston in that newspaper's Sunday magazine. Ward met with reporters Friday to try and clarify remarks that had been seen as anti-Semitic. In the magazine story, Ward was quoted as saying to writer Eric Konigsberg, "Jews are stubborn.

When the federal government released Japanese Americans from internment camps at the end of World War II, the Rev. Robert L. James Jr. was among the clergy who "helped them to get jobs and housing" near where he worked in San Jose, Calif., said his wife, Norma Arnold. And after he took a job in Philadelphia, he moved his family in 1947 into Tanguy Homesteads, the cooperatively owned, interfaith, interracial community established in 1945 on a 100-acre farm in Glen Mills. "Clearly the interracial aspect was one of the key pieces" for moving to Tanguy, said a son, Timothy.

  The Rev. Charles G. Hankins, 81, of Whiting, a United Methodist pastor in South Jersey and a Navy Reserve chaplain there, died of complications from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease on Saturday, Aug. 9, at AristaCare at Whiting. Mr. Hankins retired in 1997 as superintendent of the Southwest District of the United Methodist Church's Greater New Jersey Conference, consisting of 79 churches. In autobiographical notes, he wrote that he was inspired to be a military chaplain by the sinking of the troop ship Dorchester on Feb. 3, 1943, with the loss of four chaplains, when he was 9 years old. A picture that touched him, he wrote, "focused on four chaplains standing on a pitching deck arm in arm after giving their life vests to soldiers to help them survive the cold Atlantic Ocean.

PHILADELPHIA In November 2012, Sister Alice Strogen saw author Mary Lou Quinlan perform her one-woman play, The God Box , about how her mother had scribbled concerns and fears on little scraps of paper and tossed them into a wicker box: "You're in my God box," she'd tell those with problems. Quinlan's play was about letting go and having faith in God by relinquishing what was out of her control. Sister Strogen also believed the play's message - perhaps even a God box itself - could help ease the suffering of the distraught parents in the 50-bed cancer ward at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, where she was a chaplain.

Andy Talley reached another milestone at Villanova, but the Wildcats coach is more concerned about the immediate future. Over the last two weeks, his team has recaptured its predicted preseason form - the Wildcats were ranked as high as No. 5 nationally. Talley earned his 200th win for the Wildcats with Saturday's 35-6 victory over Penn in the Schuylkill Showdown at Villanova Stadium. That improved Talley's record to 200-122-1 at Villanova and 228-140-2 overall. "Frankly, at this point for me to still be breathing and still coaching at Villanova is a pretty good thing," the 70-year-old Talley said.

The Rev. Will Campbell, 88, a minister who drew acclaim for his involvement in the civil rights movement, died Monday in Nashville from complications after a stroke he had about two years ago. Mr. Campbell was the Nashville representative of a pro-integration operation called the National Council of Churches. Because he was white, he was allowed entry into rooms unapproachable by some of those at the forefront of the movement. "We knew there was somebody who cared and was concerned about what happened to us," Bernard Lafayette, a civil rights leader in Nashville and close friend of Mr. Campbell's, told the Tennessean newspaper.

At first, Herb Magee wasn't sure. It had been more than half a century since Magee stood in this spot, between Cell Blocks 5 and 6 inside Eastern State Penitentiary on Fairmount Avenue. The sights all around him quickly began matching up to his memories. Magee could envision inmates sitting on a low-hanging roof over a cell block, watching a basketball game, a game he was playing in. "This is it," Philadelphia University's Hall of Fame coach decided. Magee had been there a couple of times to play against inmates, once in high school, once in college.
