We noticed a few more uniformed police officers than usual in the vicinity of 16th Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway the other day. It was a sunny morning and they had a smart, crisp look about them. And one other thing: They were carrying hand-held radios. Turns out they were pounding "court-recall" beats, a practice started years ago, discontinued and recently revived by Police Commissioner Richard Neal. The concept is elegantly simple: Instead of cooling their heels in a City Hall corrider, cops who are waiting to testify in court are assigned to walk beats throughout Center City, the 18th and Vine Street area (near Family Court)

Take care of business and baby (or at least the equipment for both) with one of the snazzy new double-duty baby bags from OiOi Baby. Fashioned in bright patterns and muted shades in cotton or leather, with water-resistant linings, many of the styles are appropriate for both men and women. They have space for a laptop computer in addition to pockets and pouches for diapers and the included matching baby-bottle holder and padded changing mat. A favorite unisex model is the 11-by-15-by-6-inch Chocolate Waxed Canvas Satchel, with a range of compartments inside and out, an adjustable shoulder strap, fixed stroller straps, insulated bottle compartments, and antiqued metal accents.

Ed DiCamillo awakened with double the excitement, double the anticipation. Knowing he is slated for double duty will do that to a football player. In an extremely rare departure from the norm, Father Judge coach John "Whitey" Sullivan used three players on both sides of the ball in yesterday's 14-0 Catholic North win at Archbishop Wood. Dave Kniese played tackle and defensive end. Mark Potero was a wingback and linebacker. Then, there was DiCamillo, a 5-10, 190-pound senior fullback and linebacker.

Saxophonist Joe Lovano has worked in many configurations, from orchestras to nonets to duos, since he began recording in the mid-'80s. Us Five, the band he brought to Chris' Jazz Cafe on Thursday, was again something different: a quintet with two drummers, Francisco Mela and Otis Brown 3d. Positioned on either end of the bandstand, the drummers grinned at each other and seemed to approach their situation as a game. First, the young Mela joined Lovano and veteran bassist Cameron Brown, swinging hard in 4/4 while Otis Brown waited.

LOS ANGELES - After 30 years in film as an actor and director, Kenneth Branagh is right where he should be. As his latest directorial effort, "Thor," hits theaters today, Branagh, 50, said his experience on both sides of the camera is lining up perfectly with his appetite, which inspires a new enthusiasm for each craft. "It's like returning to when I was 16 and first did a school play and thought, 'Oh, this is what I should do. This is what I'm supposed to do,' " he said from a hotel suite where he was promoting the Marvel movie.

Two Palmyra police officers will be doing double duty as the borough's newest emergency services squad. Officers Floyd Johnson, 27, and John Lippincott, 25, the newly licensed emergency medical technicians, will continue their police duties as they patrol the borough's streets during 12-hour shifts they take in turn. Burlington County's police academy in Westampton trains all officers to administer first aid or CPR until other emergency personnel arrive on the scene. But the police officers usually lack the skills and equipment to treat more serious injuries.

It was double duty for Jayne Attanasio at the recent Atlantic City Collegiate Invitational tournament at the Showboat Lanes - and in each case it brought a pleasing outcome. Attanasio served as coordinator of the tournament, which was in its second year, and, as coach of the Temple women's bowling team, guided her squad to the title. Temple posted a nine-game total of 7,997 to win handily over William Paterson of Jersey City, which totaled 7,681. The Owls led by 185 pins after the first block of three games, then increased the lead to 442 after the second block.

The Montreal Expos threw a record-tying eight pitchers at the Cincinnati Reds. None could match - or stop - Pete Schourek. The lefthander gave up two homers, then doubled to start the go-ahead rally last night as the host Reds won, 7-4, to snap their three-game losing streak. Cincinnati's fourth win in 11 games reduced its clinching number in the NL Central to three. Montreal tied the NL record by using eight pitchers in nine innings - six in the final 3 1/3 - but wound up losing its fourth straight.

The big winner was the American Heart Association, but Chris Zelenka, Radley Run Country Club's assistant pro, could stake a strong claim for a share of the honors. The occasion on Aug. 13 was the second annual Pat Reeves Memorial Pro- Amateur Golf Tournament.

DOVER, Del. - Kurt Busch was munching on a healthy snack food in his race team's transporter yesterday at Dover International Speedway. "What, no beet juice?" he was asked. "Not today," Busch replied. "That stuff tastes like purple chalk. " While Busch was training for his Indianapolis/Charlotte doubleheader last Sunday, beet juice was included in his nutritional plan. Busch finished an impressive sixth in his Indy 500 debut. Engine trouble in his No. 41 Chevrolet relegated him to a 40th-place finish in the Coca-Cola 600. So, how did he feel the first few days after Indy and Charlotte?

While Meghan McCullough's Penn teammates were on board a bus bound for Cambridge, Mass., Thursday afternoon, the point guard was winging her way south. McCullough, a senior, was en route to a Friday morning job interview in Charlotte, N.C. The Quakers were on their way to battle Harvard for first place in the Ivy League. After a lot of hustling by McCullough Friday, Penn (17-6, 7-2 Ivy League) put away the Crimson, 63-50. The engineering major played all but one minute and scored eight points, grabbed five rebounds, dealt two assists, had three steals, blocked a shot, and didn't commit a single turnover.

EDNA, Texas - Most of the time, the windowless building with the dome-shaped roof will be a typical high school gymnasium filled with cheering fans watching basketball and volleyball games. But come hurricane season, the structure that resembles a miniature version of the famed Astrodome will double as a hurricane shelter, part of an ambitious storm-defense system that is taking shape along hundreds of miles of the Texas Gulf Coast. Its brawny design - including double-layer cinder-block walls reinforced by heavy-duty steel bars and concrete piers that plunge 30 feet into the ground - should allow it to withstand winds up to 200 m.p.h.

SO WHO WAS responsible for turning radio's Howard Eskin into TV's Howard Eskin? The folks at KYW-TV who, in 1982, gave him his first television sports-anchoring gig, certainly played a role. But there is someone else Eskin credits as much, if not more. That would be the late, great Jim O'Brien, whom Eskin met when he was just starting out in broadcasting in the 1970s, when working behind the scenes at Top 40 powerhouse WFIL-AM. At the time, O'Brien was already a beloved personality, doing double duty at both 'FIL and its then-corporate sibling, Channel 6. Eskin recalled that in 1981, a year before he was hired at Channel 3, "Jim O'Brien said, 'You should be on television.' " Then the Channel 3 offer came, and, remembered Eskin, "He was the first guy I called.

Bill Belton was asked to do so much last season for Winslow Township, and he accounted for more than 3,000 yards and 30 touchdowns. Belton didn't play on defense last year, but this season, he has been asked to do double duty. And he is proving to be a similar force on the other side of the ball. Belton's two-way play got Winslow Township off to a strong start as the Eagles defeated visiting Washington Township, 32-13 in Saturday's interdivisional West Jersey Football League matchup.

It's a natural act for many high school quarterbacks who are asked to perform double duty - go hard on offense and rest on defense. The quarterback position takes so much out of a player both physically and mentally that sometimes the time spent on defense is looked on as a respite. For Eastern senior Logan Ryan, that wasn't an acceptable policy. Even though Ryan had to operate Eastern's complex spread offense, when it came time to play cornerback, he never put down his helmet or hard hat. So instead of running the other way when he saw a sweep coming toward his direction, Ryan would stick his helmet in the middle of the action.
