When Sheila O'Callaghan was growing up in the 1950s and '60s in North Jersey, the somewhat older members of the Crowther side of the family seized her imagination. They included admirable women, more than a couple of whom pursued higher education near Philadelphia, at Rosemont College on the well-to-do Main Line. One of them was O'Callaghan's aunt, Catherine "Nan" Holland, a 1951 Rosemont graduate who went on to marry the dashing Hugh Crowther. When it was time for O'Callaghan to go to college, she selected Rosemont.

Mrs. Barnes died on her 83rd birthday in the same Main Line hospital where she was born, said one of her sons, D. Alexander Barnes.

Since 1941, the Norman Gothic-style chapel at Rosemont College has been a place of worship for students at the Catholic school on the Main Line. But over the last three years, the building has become something more - a place for study. Specifically, for studying the chapel itself. Two professors, one in history, the other in studio art, have been co-teaching an honors class delving into the history of the towering, 75-year-old building that is shaped like a cross. They have learned that it is one of only two chapels in the United States, and few in the world, that mostly feature portraits of female saints and other religious figures in its stained-glass windows.

The students, all fourth and fifth graders, came from the same school. Yet they were so different. Some were shy and slow to speak. Others were loud and boisterous, eager to crack jokes and make noise. All 10 students, from the Gesu School, in North Philadelphia, were at the Rosemont School of the Holy Child, in Montgomery County, for the same reason: to expand their education. On this October day, they were there to examine Japanese culture. In a roundtable discussion to open the session, Rosemont teachers Matt Nuttall and Greg Soltis told the students to name a few things they thought they knew about Japan.

Rosemont College on Wednesday announced it will cut tuition a whopping 43 percent next year and knock $1,900 off room and board in a bid to attract families scared away by a sticker price that this year topped $46,000. The new price tag? $30,000. But no students will see a $16,000 price cut, because the college - like many peers - doled out so much aid that few paid close to the sticker price. Still, Rosemont officials say each student can expect to pay less. Their savings, the college said, will average $815 per student.
