To get a better grade, some pupils give their teacher an apple or a tin of their mothers' homemade fudge. Others erase blackboards or do extra credit. Eve Tenser, an honors student at Edinboro University, has decided to take her professor to court. Tenser is accusing Edinboro University and one of its nursing instructors of violating the terms of a contract after she was denied a diploma for getting an F in a clinical nursing course in her last semester. The case, which started in the Erie County Court of Common Pleas in August 1992, was first transferred to Commonwealth Court but is now before the state Board of Claims, an agency that settles contract disputes with state government.

Washington Township, a sprawling suburb of about 50,000, is filled with SUVs, well-maintained housing developments, and an endless stream of upscale shopping centers and Italian restaurants. It is sometimes known as "Little South Philly" because it seems most people from that region have moved into the popular Gloucester County community. The Chirico family fits the description. In 1992, the family left their South Philadelphia row house and moved to Washington Township, where they felt quite comfortable in their new surroundings.

The students in Mirabel "Pidge" Molyneaux's English 371 class - officially known as "Other Voices, Other Cultures" - at La Salle University were struggling with Albert Camus' "The Guest," an existentialist tale revolving around the relationship of three men in Algeria. "What about the theme of the story?" she asked. "What do you think it is?" Sophomore Kathryn MacDonald didn't hear the question. She never does. Nor did she look at the teacher. In this class, she rarely does that, either.

Michael Devine's mother started fuming the minute she hung up the phone. It was the school calling to say her 16-year-old had skipped for the third time, and it was only Sept. 30. Denise Tomey spent the day calling everyone she could think of: his friends, his grandmother, the Parkesburg police, even his father, to whom she rarely spoke. When he didn't show up for dinner - always at 5 - her anger turned to fear. "By 9:15, I was freaking," she said. "He was never one to be out in the dark by himself.

The fourth person killed in Saturday's double-decker Megabus crash near Syracuse, N.Y., was identified Sunday as 18-year-old Deanna Armstrong of Voorhees. According to the Syracuse Post-Standard newspaper, Armstrong had been a student at West Genesee High School in Upstate New York until recently; her family moved to New Jersey within the last several months. She left the school in her junior year and was returning to the area to visit friends. The bus trip she took originated at 30th Street Station in Philadelphia on Friday night and ended in a crash early Saturday when the driver took the wrong road off an exit ramp and piloted the 13-foot-high bus into a CSX railroad bridge only 10 feet, 9 inches above the road.

Those spare facts make up the little that the parties can agree upon in a lawsuit working its way through federal court in Philadelphia. The young man at its center - an honors student and former high school class president identified in court filings only as John Doe - says he was wrongfully accused and found guilty of sexual misconduct by a school eager to quash criticism that it did not take assault allegations from female students seriously.

Two Southwest Philadelphia honor students had a pretty good excuse for being 40 minutes late for school Tuesday: After two explosions and a fire in a neighbor's house, the pair of high school students broke a rear window, clambered over broken glass, raced up a smoke-filled staircase, pulled a sleeping boy out of bed, then hustled him out the rear door. "They're both heroes," exclaimed Rennu Teli-Johnson, principal of Motivation High School on Baltimore Avenue. "But one of them still owes me his senior-project topic.

Lexi Smith knew what she had to do: stop scoring. That's a peculiar thought for a pure scorer. But she had something more important to consider after she tied Florence's single-season scoring record Monday against Cinnaminson in a nonleague field hockey game. "I had the opportunity [to break the record], but my aunt wasn't prepared for it," Smith said after she scored four goals in a 6-0 win over the Pirates.
