Running a Wawa store and managing a Roman Catholic parish might not seem to have much in common. But last week, a group of St. Charles Borromeo Seminary students, a year from being ordained as priests, had the last of five management-training sessions inspired by a program that St. Joseph's University professors developed for the convenience-store chain. For the seminarians, the Thursday management classes at St. Joseph's Haub School of Business were in sharp contrast to the philosophy and theology classes that are central to their formation as priests.

Anybody looking in from the outside would think I have it all: work, family, home, health. But I feel together only when everything falls into place. If just one little piece gets out of kilter, I feel as though I'm drowning in disorganization - as though my whole carefully created world is toppling. Some of my friends tell me my expectations are too high, that I can't control everything all the time. But what am I supposed to do? Realize, first of all, that you are not alone. Hundreds of thousands of working parents feel that they can't get control of their lives.

Adam Smith's "invisible hand" reached out last week and swatted Leonid Skupkov. Skupkov, who manages a knitwear factory in south-central Russia, had botched his first attempt to manage a factory in a free-market economy: His plant stayed deep in debt for 12 production periods because Skupkov misjudged how much he could sell at what prices. Skupkov took the blow with a game smile. His mismanagement had cost him nothing but a bit of pride, since his "factory" was only a figment of computer software.

A panel now being formed of prominent private citizens can be key to overhauling the Philadelphia Housing Authority, especially if it tackles the agency's longest-running problem: patronage. While the private panel, headed by banker Samuel A. McCullough, will draft its own list of tasks - and plenty of them - there will never be a better time to tackle this politically delicate issue. With pols in Washington and Philadelphia staking their reputations on cleaning up PHA, the outside panel can help curb abuses by putting its own experts to work.

Hamburger University, the institution of higher McLearning, and four area community colleges have a question for managers of local McDonald's restaurants: Would you like a degree with that? Looking for ways to prevent employees from slipping away as fast as cars in the drive-through lane, local McDonald's officials have arranged college credit for managers who take McDonald's classes locally and at their national training center, Hamburger U. in Illinois. Company officials created the "McDonald's College Degree Program" to recruit badly needed workers and to enhance the appeal of careers in fast-food service.
