South Philadelphia deli worker Eric D. Jackson wound up with a murder rap after trying to break up an early-morning fight between two customers on May 4. Jackson, 23, allegedly shot and killed one of the men at the store at 15th and Federal streets. After a preliminary hearing before Municipal Judge Harvey W. Robbins this week, Jackson, of Darby, was ordered to stand trial on a general charge of murder. Bail was set at $135,000. Defense lawyer Everett A. Gillison said Jackson might have acted in self-defense in the shooting of Clark Corprew, 42, of Moore Street near 17th.

The Zoning Board yesterday voted to halt the sale of beer and malt liquor at a take-out deli in West Philadelphia. William G. Schwartz, lawyer for the deli, the Purple Fox, on Baltimore Avenue near 48th Street in the Cedar Park neighborhood, said its owners would appeal the decision. Schwartz said the city's recent enforcement action against such delis appeared to be aimed primarily at Asian-owned shops. Thomas J. Lee, primary shareholder of the firm that owns the Purple Fox, is Asian.

Thirty minutes before closing Saturday night at Hymie's, a landmark Main Line deli, manager Lenny Silow noticed a masked man walking up the aisle with a gun. Silow ducked out of sight and hurried to another side of the restaurant and, from several feet away, whispered to his cashier: "Call the police. " Then he complied with the gunman's orders to get down on the floor. Behind the counter, cashier Michelle Horev didn't know what to think of Silow's hushed plea at first.

Frances Koch, 82, the goodnatured founder with her late husband of Koch's Take Out Shop, a Locust Street deli that became a West Philadelphia institution, died yesterday of a heart attack in her Havertown home. Although it had been more than 12 years since Mrs. Koch stood behind the counter slicing sandwich meat for the customers patiently lined up in the tiny shop, she remained active with the deli, her son Bob Koch said. "Even when she couldn't stand behind the counter, her brain worked fine," Koch said.

Shirley Calhoun Bramble seemed to be a cheerleader long after she had been one at what is now Gloucester City Junior-Senior High School. Because Bramble's Cold Cuts, her family's delicatessen in Gloucester City, was near Gloucester Catholic High School, its students became part of an extended family. Each year, seniors would hand their class photographs to Mrs. Bramble, and she would arrange them in a photo album and display it prominently at the store. "She was adopted by every one of the kids," a son, Joseph E. IV, said.

A Sandwich Express delicatessen wants to move into the Prudential Business Campus in Horsham, but a neighboring corporation is opposing the venture because of the traffic congestion it could cause. The Jackson-Cross Co. informed the Horsham Zoning Hearing Board Monday night of its plans for 222 Lakeside Drive in the industrial park, according to zoning and company officials. The real estate company wants to rent the office to Sandwich Express, which has similar operations in Fort Washington and King of Prussia business campuses.

Alfred Gaspari last week received the city's blessing to expand his deli and produce business in Holmesburg. Thanks to the city, that expansion is sure to cost more than he first expected. "The only conflict I have now is the additional cost," Gaspari said on Friday. "It's going to cost quite a bit more. " Gaspari revised his original plans after the city Zoning Board of Adjustment in February told him to get rid of two truck trailers he currently uses for storage at Al's Corner, Rhawn Street and Torresdale Avenue.

ZONING decisions in Philadelphia are like orders in a deli as imagined by Kafka. Obnoxious customers shout with little regard for who's next in line and a self-important man behind the counter tells people they can have anything they want, as long as it's corned beef on rye with a little slaw. The Barnes is a 47-story tower proposed for 21st and Hamilton between Benjamin Franklin Parkway and the Spring Garden neighborhood. I've twice expressed support for the tower, especially with recent improvements to the Spring Garden and 22nd Street sides of the design.

So what has retired Gen. Colin Powell been up to lately? Working behind a deli counter, and the pay is good. Powell got $60,000 for a one-hour speech Tuesday night to about 1,000 owners of Schlotzsky's sandwich shops, a chain based in Austin, Texas. The dais at the hotel where he spoke was set up to resemble a Schlotzsky's deli, complete with cans of jalape no peppers, sacks of bun mix, and jars of hot sauce. "I've never given a speech from behind a deli counter," Powell told the group.

On April 24 and 25, Merwin, 46, will be elevated to the post of "Charlotte Kulp Memorial Scholar in Residence" at Congregation Beth Judah outside Atlantic City, where last year's Kulp scholar was a senior fellow at the Washington Institute focusing on the politics of Iran and Shiite groups in the Middle East.

When Charles J. Kasse was the Eastern Seaboard regional sales manager in Philadelphia in the 1980s for the Mosler Safe Co., he had to make a decision. "He didn't want to go to Chicago," daughter Stacy said. "He was transferred" to the Chicago office, "and he didn't want to go, because it was too cold.

Hymie's Merion Delicatessen had good luck and bad luck Thursday morning. The bad luck came in the form of a Dodge Ram pickup truck that crashed through the front wall, on the dining-room side, of the popular Lower Merion Township restaurant. The good luck was that the accident occurred an hour before opening time, so no diners were there and all the employees were in the other half of the restaurant. No one was injured except the driver, who one witness said was bleeding from his face.

HERBERT Ginensky had this thing about vinegar. The health-giving and curative powers of this simple ingredient, known to every cook, were taken to extremes by this man who often let his imagination run away with him. He insisted you could take vinegar internally and externally. Try bathing your feet in it. And, oh yes, dark chocolate was in the same salubrious category. And Herbert was not shy about promoting both. He passed out photocopied brochures extolling their benefits.

The door to Anna's Deli was propped wide open Wednesday morning, with the owner of the Northeast Philadelphia neighborhood store behind the counter to greet his regular customers. A little more than 12 hours earlier, the 55-year-old deli owner and his wife were confronted by a 19-year-old armed robber who burst into the small Tacony shop and threatened their lives. But the shopkeeper had a weapon of his own, and returned fire after the gunman shot at him. He struck the would-be robber in the chest, police said, killing him on the spot.
