More that 1,500 people, including three busloads from Penn Charter, remembered her Monday during services at Main Line Reform Temple-Beth Elohim in Wynnewood.

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.

Dressed in her traditional robe, with beadwork trim, Stacey J. Coverdale, 22, strode up on the stage Sunday to receive her diploma the same way she had spent her four years at Dartmouth College - proud of her American Indian heritage. Only 12 hours later, Miss Coverdale was dead, her life lost in a head-on collision in West Lebanon, N.H. She was in a car being driven by her father when the accident occurred, killing Miss Coverdale and leaving her father, two other relatives and a friend with serious injuries.

LAST WEEK, a bullet ended 19-year-old Aaron McDaniels' life. The Philly teen had been shot twice before. After one of those occasions, he told the Daily News he was considering a relative's offer to move out of the city. "It'd be better, and it would be hard, like starting a whole new life," he said. Now, he's dead. Another kid from another tough neighborhood in another tough city who had a chance to get out and didn't take it. I was 17 when my family made the semitraumatic move out of the Bronx, to Connecticut.

"Jim was the wisest person I ever met," said Alan Dershowitz, professor of law at Harvard University and a friend of Mr. Freedman's for 47 years. "Jim absorbed knowledge and turned it into wisdom," Dershowitz said in a telephone interview yesterday.

Rick Sowell made it clear he wasn't budging from Georgetown University in 1998. The assistant lacrosse coach had helped head coach Dave Urick build the Hoyas into an elite Division I program. And Sowell planned to be around to reap those rewards. Then along came Josie Harper, an associate athletic director at Dartmouth College. Harper, who grew up outside Media, Delaware County, can be persuasive. And she targeted Sowell to become the Dartmouth men's lacrosse head coach. "When the job became open, I told the Georgetown coach I wasn't interested," Sowell said.
