Amid neighborhood concern, a Mount Holly delicatessen owner has withdrawn his application for an additional pinball machine. Before nearby residents could urge the Township Council to reject the application Monday, Alfred Ireland, who owns Aldee's Deli at Cherry and Garden Streets, said he would withdraw his request. He also offered to remove two video games and a pinball machine already in his store. Council members told Ireland that he didn't have to take such a step - that he could negotiate with the neighbors - but on Wednesday he decided to close the game room.

Terence McCracken Jr. greets his girlfriend, Maria Tumolo, outside the Delaware County Courthouse in Media yesterday. He was freed on $60,000 bail yesterday. Last week he won a new trial after serving 45 months in jail for a killing he says he did not commit. McCracken, 22, was convicted in October 1983 of second-degree murder in the death of a customer shot in a 1983 holdup of a Collingdale delicatessen. McCracken was granted a new trial on the basis of statements that another man confessed to the crime in talks with McCracken's lawyer and prison inmates.

Delicatessen, the happily warped, haywire first feature from French filmmakers Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro, is a blissful reminder of just how far the medium of movies can take you: It can take you anywhere. A darker-than-dark comedy about love and cannibalism, Delicatessen is a screwball synthesis of Buster Keaton's silent classics, Terry Gilliam's Brazil, the ricocheting artistry of animator Tex Avery, the arch, cinematic brashness of the Coen brothers and the freak-show atmosphere of David Lynch.

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.
