Once I got staff writer Kathy Lally going, there was no stopping her. I had asked her to name some exceptional graduates of Goucher College, and here are a few she came up with:Marion Pines, class of 1944, who's been a major force in Baltimore and national job training; Margaret Kramer, '30, who developed the first oral medicine for poison ivy immunization; Florence Seibert, '18, who developed a purified tuberculosis vaccine.And there were more that Kathy had come across in reporting this week's cover story: Judy Lewent, '70, chief financial officer of Merck & Co., "the nation's highest ranking female CFO and one of the few women who has broken through the glass ceiling"; Sarah Tilghman Hughes, '17, who swore in LBJ; Joan Claybrook, '59, President Carter's director of National Traffic and Highway Safety; Paula Stern, '67, former chairman of the U.S. Trade Commission.

At the Towson University football team's home opener late last month, the loudest cheers arguably came for the smallest athlete on the field. With the current Towson gymnastics team by her side, 24-year-old alumna Kacy Catanzaro stood in the endzone and waved to the roughly 8,000 fans in attendance. "Let's go, Kacy! Let's go, Kacy!" the student section began to chant as Catanzaro — dressed in a black top, denim shorts and boots pulled up to her knees — flashed her megawatt smile.

The house stands straight and square on its North Baltimore hillside. A diagram of its interior is almost like a doll's house, four stories of large rooms that are all the same size, except for lower ceilings above the ground floor and in the basement.That's Noyes House, the alumnae center on the campus of the College of Notre Dame of Maryland. It's a breath of the 1850s Italian revival that somehow has survived the years -- all straight lines and tall windows, all high ceilings, light and air and views of old trees and a parking lot.This little-known, antebellum relic is something else, however: a sample of what Baltimore families will come up with to help furnish spaces that cry for historic treatment.

A $10 million campus center that houses athletic facilities, a dance studio, a fitness center and a dining hall was dedicated yesterday at Garrison Forest School, although workers are still putting the finishing touches on the 53,000-square- foot building. G. Peter O'Neill, head of Garrison Forest, called the new center a "wonderful dream of ours" and credited the philanthropy of women, all of them alumnae, for making the dream come true at the all-girls school. "Women were the largest donors to the school," O'Neill said, with more than $7 million for the project coming from them.

What a bunch of rule-breakers those Seton High girls are. Back at the school Saturday, they tromped up and down the once off-limits golden stairs. They ate muffins and drank lemonade in the chapel. And then - in the hallways where talking was forbidden and students had to walk single-file between classes - Mary Sue Frankowski broke into song. "We are the girls of Seton High / You hear so much about," Frankowski sang, stomping her feet to keep time as others joined in the ruckus. "The people stop and stare at us / Whenever we go out."
