TUNING OUT AND TUNING IN Everywhere we look, the world urges us to avoid the pleasures of silence - to turn on the radio or the television, to make a phone call, to see a movie, to leap to where the action is - above all, to be active. Many people, I fear, regard contemplative endeavors, like reading and writing, as too low-tech, too labor-intensive, too solitary, too quiet to be personally satisfying. We often act as if silence and solitude are conditions to be avoided at all costs - out of a fear, perhaps, that left alone with our thoughts and feelings, we may discover that we do not make very good company for ourselves.

Since mid-November, when Kelly Knudsen resigned as women's soccer coach at Dartmouth College, Germantown Academy's Lea Kiefer anxiously awaited word of Knudsen's replacement. She had applied for early admission in early November and had been accepted in December. The 5-foot-3 Kiefer, who lives in Fort Washington, breathed a heavy sigh of relief late last week when she learned that Erica Walsh had been named Dartmouth's new coach. Walsh, a two-year assistant at Dartmouth who helped coordinate the program's recruiting efforts, and Kiefer have much in common: Both are soccer players from Montgomery County.

William F. Buckley's Feb. 1 Op-ed Page column "Dartmouth's shanty wars" is a superlative example of the irresponsibility of the neoconservative right - whose vandals Mr. Buckley praises for their attack on the wooden shanties erected on the Dartmouth College green to depict the oppression of South African blacks and the reluctance of the Dartmouth trustees to sell stock in companies doing business in South Africa. Mr. Buckley not only fails to note that negotiations had guaranteed a voluntary removal of the shanties, he also obscures the racism of the Dartmouth Review raiders by not informing his readers that the date they chose for their violence was the Martin Luther King holiday.

A women's-rights lawyer said Wednesday that federal suits had been filed against several U.S. colleges, including Swarthmore College, alleging that the schools did not properly handle students' sexual-assault allegations. Two other complaints making similar claims were filed against Swarthmore last month. It was not immediately clear how many of the suits filed Wednesday were against Swarthmore. The complaints are not public, according to Gloria Allred, but they allege that the schools - Swarthmore, Dartmouth College, the University of North Carolina, the University of Southern California, and the University of California at Berkeley - did not comply with Title IX or the Clery Act. Title IX, commonly known as a law related to women's sports, also contains civil rights requirements.
