Forbes magazine looked at the nation's top colleges based on the number of billionaires minted by each, and found that Penn's Quakers number the most among the Forbes 400. The cost of attendance for Penn's 2016-17 academic year totals $69,340 for an undergraduate, according to its website ( http://www.sfs.upenn.edu/paying/cost-of-attendance.htm )

Raymond Carroll, who averaged 21 points a game for the Chester High basketball team this past season, said yesterday that he would attend Fordham University on a full scholarship.

"I looked for a school that was just as comparable to Penn as far as education was concerned," Carroll said.

A MAN WHO could read 15,000 books, give or take a few hundred, was a man to be reckoned with. And Larry Riley was that man. But how to do the reckoning? He was a man whose spiritual journey took him to a Trappist monastery, probably the strictist order in the Roman Catholic Church, yet he was also a man who enjoyed handicapping race horses and cheering on the steeds at Philadelphia Park and the old Garden State track. He earned a Ph.D with a dissertation on the Bolshevik show trials in the Soviet Union instigated by Joseph Stalin in the 1930s to get rid of his rivals.

THE REV. Terrence Toland had to be prodded - gently, of course - to attend the ceremony last November in which a building at St. Joseph's University was named for him. Father Toland was revered as a humble Jesuit who shied away from public recognition of the good works he performed in his 61 years as a Roman Catholic priest. Nevertheless, officials of the university, of which Toland was the 23rd president, managed to drag him to the ceremony at which the Fine Arts West Building became Toland Hall on the James J. Maguire '58 Campus, the site of the former Episcopal Academy.
