Kal Rudman, the music maven and Philadelphia philanthropist, offers me a piece of paper and a bit of advice. "You should open your column," he says, "with this . " The email that's already been printed out for me is from a grateful Philly high school student, and is noteworthy indeed. But first, I have a few questions for Rudman, who turns 86 on Sunday - and whose philanthropic mission is, like his taste in pop music, catholic. Despite his having been "born Jewish, but only on my mother's . . . and father's side," he says, savoring the punch line.

It's not often that The Tonight Show becomes the showcase for college fund-raising. But Upper Darby native Tina Fey changed that Wednesday night when she said on the show that she and her brother, Peter, had created a Temple University scholarship fund in memory of their father, Donald, a Temple alumnus, who died in October. The show briefly ran the scholarship fund link - Giving.Temple.edu/FeyMemorial - on the screen as Fey talked. The fund had already collected some gifts, including a donation from Tonight host Jimmy Fallon, said David Boardman, dean of Temple's School of Media and Communication.

ISSUE | PA. BUDGET STALEMATE Don't play politics with university students We, the student-body presidents of Pennsylvania's four state-related universities, have joined to voice the growing frustration and worries of 110,000 students. Because of gridlock in Harrisburg, Penn State, Temple, Pitt, and Lincoln University face the prospect of receiving zero dollars in state allocations this year - a $600 million shortfall ("Threat of layoffs at Penn State," Saturday). If action is not taken, tuition increases, staff layoffs, and program cuts will be needed.

Haverford College has rescinded Bill Cosby's honorary degree, joining a list of schools nationwide that have sought to distance themselves from the embattled entertainer. In an announcement Friday, Haverford officials said they approved a recommendation this month to rescind the degree they gave Cosby in 2002. "Although his creative contributions at the crossroads of education, civil rights, and entertainment remain," the college's honorary degree committee wrote, "Dr. Cosby's admission that he acquired drugs for the purpose of giving them to women with whom he wanted to have sex undermines the educational and humanitarian principles for which the Haverford community honored him 14 years ago. The college is deeply troubled by the nature of the conduct to which Dr. Cosby has admitted, which we view as gravely inconsistent with Haverford's institutional values.

For eight months, Pennsylvania's four state-related universities haven't seen a dime in state funding. Collectively, Pennsylvania State University, Temple University, the University of Pittsburgh, and Lincoln University are out about $600 million. They've borrowed money, put off hiring, scaled back travel, and postponed projects as they waited for Harrisburg to resolve the budget impasse. They're done waiting. "Our stand-alone appropriation bills have become the latest bargaining chip in a protracted political fight," the leaders of those institutions wrote in a letter that has begun appearing in some of the state's newspapers.

As Neil D. Theobald approaches his 60th birthday, he began looking for a way to honor his late parents. The Temple University president found the answer emanating from a church in Cincinnati. It came in the form of a 1,000-pound vintage bell. The university has installed the refurbished, 150-year-old bell in a cradle atop Shusterman Hall, a former church that Temple renovated in 1997 for conference space. The bell will be illuminated at night and chime on each quarter-hour for those across the North Philadelphia campus to hear.

Longtime Inquirer columnist, editor and reporter Acel Moore knew his city and he loved it. This is how he wrote in 2001 about legendary former Temple University basketball coach John Chaney - who, like Moore, hailed from South Philadelphia. "He is a man who understands what it means to live across the tracks. (That means on either side of Washington Avenue.) "He has seen his mother buy dry goods on Fourth Street. . . . He understands the feeling of having only enough money to eat pickles for lunch or baloney sandwiches for dinner.
