Masjid. Imam. Words that conjure up visions of a minaret or the Koran. These are words the Youth Fellowship group from the First Presbyterian Church in Haddonfield will learn about today when they visit a mosque in Philadelphia. A masjid is a mosque. An imam is a leader of prayer. In just a 30-minute trip from Haddonfield, the students will step back through hundreds of years of cultural and religious history and learn about the religion of Islam. Their trip is part of a month-long Youth Fellowship program on Iraq.

"Ten-hut!" On a rainy Saturday morning in January, the traditional military call to attention echoed across the gray concrete and idle helicopters in a vast hangar of Willow Grove Naval Air Station. Two precise rows of Marines, in fatigues, caps and polished combat boots, stood stiffly. "About face!" The ringing voice of command belonged to a baby-faced 12-year-old. The whole unit, as a matter of fact, is made up of boys, ages 8 to 18. It is a local branch of the Young Marines, a Marines-sponsored youth group designed to teach military-style discipline and physical training.

A GROUP OF current and former students launched a campaign yesterday to identify peers they claim have been pushed out of Philadelphia public schools through closings or cutbacks to key programs. Youth United for Change said the closure of 24 schools last year, combined with cuts to the school district's Re-Engagement Center and slots in accelerated schools, has left students who drop out with few options. "Being pushed out is unfair," said YUC member Maury Elliott, a former Simon Gratz High student who briefly re-enrolled in an alternative school.

Posting themselves between Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, a couple dozen demonstrators from civil rights and immigrant-aid groups took aim Wednesday at the only part of Arizona's immigration law that the U.S. Supreme Court did not overturn Monday. Their target was the provision known as "show me your papers," requiring police to verify the immigration status of anyone they detain for any offense. The practical result will be racial profiling, warned speakers from the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania, the NAACP, the New Sanctuary Movement, and the Latino community support group Juntos.
