Two Philadelphia high school girls landed in hospitals with knife wounds yesterday as city students finally shot and stabbed their way into trouble with top school brass. Schools Superintendent Constance Clayton denounced this week's shotgunning and knifings as "absolutely outrageous. " To combat the bloodshed, she ordered hirings of 15 more security guards and purchase of an unspecified number of hand-held metal detectors. Serious school violence has surged over the last three years, according to a school-by-school summary released yesterday for the first time.

In soap talk, yesterday was P-Day, the day the character Steven Johnson, formally known as Patch on NBC's (Channel 3 at 1 p.m.) "Days of Our Lives," lost his trademark eyepatch. It's a cataclysmic event sure to rankle the "Days" fans. Even Stephen Nichols, the actor who has portrayed the show's popular antihero for nearly four years, admits he didn't easily cotton to the idea of dropping the patch - even briefly. "I begged them for years never to lose the patch," says Nichols. "But basically they won me over with this great story proposal.

IWONDER how stop-and-frisk is really going to work. Are police already practicing this new policy? I ask because I recently witnessed a knife fight between two men right in front of my home in West Philadelphia at 4:45 p.m. Both had knives and were really going at each other. The police were called by neighbors. It took 10 to 15 minutes to respond, and, when they did, the police car sped down the block and on to the next block. Men were all standing around where the fight took place and didn't leave.

Roosters, Theatre Exile's new production, is a play about Latino machismo. And because the play is written by a woman (Milcha Sanchez-Scott) and directed by a woman (Deborah Block), it is surprising that machismo is both swooned over and reviled. The roosters of the title are both the cock-of-the-walk men who strut through this world and the birds who fight for their honor. Cockfighting is a given in this world; nobody frets about cruelty to animals as they fasten gleaming blades to the roosters' feet.

Charles Barkley has a particular way of saying knucklehead. It rolls off his tongue with a slow Southern drawl that makes it sound more like nugggggle-hay-ed. No one delivers it like Chuck. It's one of his favorite words - perhaps because Chuck, himself, is a nugggggle-hay-ed. The lengthy list of his infractions includes (but isn't limited to) accidentally spitting on a child during a game, being arrested after picking up a lady of the night, and throwing a guy through a window.
