About 375,000 sheer rayon chiffon scarves that could "burn faster than newspaper" were pulled from stores all over the country yesterday in what the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said was the largest clothing recall ever conducted under the Flammable Fabrics Act. "These scarves represent a serious risk of injury," Commission chairwoman Ann Brown said yesterday of the long, flowing scarves. "People wear them around their necks and shoulders, and they float around and could catch an ignition source anywhere.

When at Villanova, do as the Romans do. That's the philosophy of six students in the university's entrepreneurship program who have turned a classroom project into a promising business. On a trip to Rome last year, one of the students, Tara Gatto, noticed soccer fans adorned with scarves - not to keep their necks warm, but to use while cheering on their team. "Everyone had one," she said. "They would hold it up during the game. " So Gatto and her classmates thought scarves would be fitting for fans of Villanova's soaring men's basketball team, too. Now they hope to expand their business by selling scarves to students and alumni of other colleges and universities.

All during this awfully cold winter, I took comfort in infinity scarves. And although the winds are warming, I want to hold on to my stylish security blanket. Judging from the explosion of lightweight wraps on this spring's fashion scene - bandeau and shawl, solid and print, tasseled and zippered - I'm not alone. "You just wrap yourself in them over and over and over again," said Ken Downing, Neiman Marcus' famed fashion director, as he exited a Drexel University lunch in his honor Friday afternoon.

The concept appears simple. You take three small objects, preferably not rotten eggs, and use both hands to keep the objects simultaneously airborne. Rocket science it's not, as 50 Bucks County children learned this week from an expert in Falls Township. To get the hang of it, they tossed scarves in the air, instead of balls or fruit. Sure enough, Wayne Campbell had a whole room of youngsters juggling in an hour. Campbell, 36, of Levittown, has owned a local franchise of the California- based Juggling Institute since 1986.

Many people with whom I talk in South Jersey want to do something to help those who are less fortunate, but they aren't sure exactly how or when to do such good works. Karen Marshall of Haddonfield was one of these people. For years, she dreamed about opening a school in Camden or teaching in an inner-city school. But when you have four children ranging in age from 6 to 19, sometimes you have to modify your dreams to fit your reality. So Marshall and a half-dozen other women are knitting for one child in one school in Camden.

The machines stand in rows, like a battalion of primitive robots: green tripods supporting bellyfuls of pinions and gears, and at head level, a cluster of spindles that looks like a complex of antennae. The mechanical army is in the cavernous quarters of D. Seidmann's Sons Inc. in Hunting Park, one of the city's - and the nation's - foremost knitting mills. One reason for the military orderliness is the belts that link the machines to a single shaft that drove them all at once.

A DAM KONIGSBERG, 59, of Northern Liberties, is a designer who translates his own artwork into digital prints on wearable silk accessories, home decor, fashion footwear and related items. He is known for exotic florals and patterns on ties, women's scarves and shawls, and throws and pillows. Q: How'd you come up with the idea for the biz? A: After hand-painting silks for a while, I decided it wasn't logical. I knew digital printing was becoming cost-effective, and that's how the business came to be, about six years ago. Q: Startup money?

It seems like such an innocuous item, a colorful silk scarf adapted from a Matisse goldfish painting. For several years, however, the scarf and others like it have been a sore spot with the Matisse estate, which is run by the impressionist's grandson, Claude Duthuit. The estate forbids the reproduction of any of Matisse's works on scarves or dresses. An agent for Duthuit repeatedly has asked the Metropolitan Museum of Art, maker of the scarves, to cease production. The museum steadfastly has refused, a stance made possible because Matisse's works are not covered by copyright in the United States.

When it comes to Christmas shopping, there's something to be said for procrastination. "When there is a little panic or guilt involved, the recipient sometimes comes out on top, don't you think?" says Jane Carton, special-events director for Saks Fifth Avenue in Bala Cynwyd. Sometimes, so does the buyer-come-lately. Sympathetic salespeople greet you eagerly, crumpled list and all, during extended evening and Sunday hours. They know which gifts will say lovingly selected, not last-minute rush.

I'm not saying Delorise Easley-Williams' gift of crocheted helmet liners for our troops isn't a kind and generous act worthy of praise. Because it is. After all, soldiers who often toil in sub-zero temperatures in Iraq, Afghanistan, South Korea, and Kosovo desperately need Delorise's worsted wool ski masks to keep their faces warm and their helmets secure. All I'm saying is, if you know Delorise - fondly known as Dee to family and friends - you'd know that she can't help giving of herself.

A federal appeals court in Philadelphia ruled Monday that Muslim women employed at the Delaware County prison may not wear religious head scarves at work. In a 2-1 decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit upheld a lower-court ruling in favor of the prison, saying any deviation in the prison dress code would cause "hardship by compromising its institutional security and safety. " The majority opinion agreed with prison officials who argued the scarves could be taken by an inmate and used to choke someone.

Judge Lisa Rau refused to lower the sentence against Kevin McKeither, 49, who appeared in court via video from the State Correctional Institution at Camp Hill.

Elvis Presley died on Aug. 16, 1977. I know this not because I have a great memory, because I don't, and not because I'm good with dates, because I'm not. I know this because it was four days before my 13th birthday. As if turning 13 weren't traumatic enough. My mother first heard the news of Elvis' death via a phone call. After she silently hung up, she looked at me with glazed-over eyes and said, "Elvis died. " She then proceeded to go into her bedroom and shut the door. She did not emerge for three days.
