The Swarthmore Academy Knights showed on Tuesday that they can learn their lesson well. Rather than allow a week's respite from game action to bother them, they released that bottled up energy on a Tri-County Independent School opponent, Kimberton School. The Knights (9-6 overall) chalked up their fifth league victory in seven games with the 73-53 win over Kimberton (2-4 league, 2-4 overall). Swarthmore coach Mark Jordan said his team concentrated on mental preparation against the Knights - something it had omitted in a nonleague contest against Mercy Vocational a week ago. In last week's game, the Knights lost by more than 30 points.

The Deptford Township Little League, awash in more than $2,000 in back water bills, was promised a bailout last night by the Township Council.

" Walter Williams said he had to be "a Jackie Robinson" in terms of achievement "and that's not Obama. " Jimmy Walker from "Good Times" is a talk-radio host in California who was dismayed at the thought of Obama as president after only a brief stint in the Senate.
