Arthur's, the last of Philadelphia's original steak houses, closed its doors after dinner Friday. Reached yesterday at the Center City restaurant, co-owner Shirley Kahn said plans were "uncertain. " The restaurant's attorney, Alan Liss, added: "A couple of plans are in the fire, but we're not at liberty to divulge them now. " Neither Kahn nor Liss would comment on reasons for the closing. Arthur's Steak House, at 1512 Walnut St., was founded in 1932 by Arthur Effron, and after Effron's death, in 1964, was run by his son, Eugene, and daughter, Shirley Kahn.

Gary Bolden is a 275-pound placekicker who grew up in a family of 16 children, hasn't played football in four years and harbors a lifelong ambition to be a professional wrestler. Other than that, he's pretty much just another round, rugged face in the crowd of free agents trying to win a place on the Eagles. Sure he is. In truth, Gary Bolden is living a three-dimensional, technicolor fantasy, the kind you stop conjuring when you're around 10 years old because it's too far removed from real life.
