As the star of "The Partridge Family," which ran from 1970 to 1974, David Cassidy became a lunch-box icon. Over one million metal meal totes stamped with his face were sold in the early '70s, along with zillions of David dolls and coloring books.And then there were those records. As Keith, the lead singer of the Partridge clan, which also featured his mother Shirley Jones, Danny Bonaduce and Susan Dey, Mr. Cassidy was a one-man version of the New Kids on the Block. As a solo artist, he had several gold records, including "I Think I Love You," which sold six million copies.

No one had to give Ro Parra directions to Pimlico Race Course yesterday. The winning owner of Student Council in the Grade I, $250,000 Pimlico Special grew up in Maryland and has been to at least 15 previous Preakness weekends. "But always in the infield," said Parra, a native of Ecuador who grew up in Lexington Park and eventually met his wife here. "This is the first time I've been to Pimlico and watched a race in the grandstand." The view was superb for the Special, which returned to the Preakness weekend race card after a one-year absence.

It's a situation that cries out for Reuben Kinkaid.The agent on "The Partridge Family" would know exactly what to do if every time Keith Partridge went out on a latter-day solo career, his record companies were bought out or went bankrupt.But David Cassidy's solution is: Just go out and tour anyway.The still impossibly boyish '70s TV star and one-time teen idol, now 41, is on his first tour in 15 years.And as much as he tried to carve an image away from the Keith Partridge character on his "David Cassidy" album, released last fall on the now-defunct Enigma Records, he is bringing back, to open the show, his fictional little brother: self-described "has-been," radio personality and recent police-blotter item Danny Bonaduce.

The Simple Life may have been nothing more than a reality variation of Green Acres, and The Apprentice and its imitators not so far removed from the late '50s drama The Millionaire. A reality version of The Beverly Hillbillies has been stalled in its attempt to get on TV (though CBS execs hint it may be produced in secret, much as the current UPN reality show that met with initial controversy, Amish in the City). But a couple of cable networks are moving full speed ahead on reality TV remakes of classic shows.

New York -- Ellicott City native Ric Ryder presses the close-door button in the Manhattan elevator repeatedly in staccato-like bursts."We're going to have to hurry," he tells his mother, "if we're going to have dinner before I have to get to the theater."A passenger turns and stares. "What show are you in?" he asks."Blood Brothers," says Mr. Ryder. "I'm playing the Shaun Cassidy role" of the affluent twin in the Broadway musical about the British class system."That's very good!" the passenger says, conveying genuine awe.Mr.

STANDING OUTSIDE of Max's on Broadway in Fells Point, waiting to get in to see former teen idol and heartthrob David Cassidy, 30-year-old Jessica Masten said, "This is a major nostalgia trip. I'm not just going to stand there, I'm going to act like I'm 12 again."And most of the women, mostly in their late 20s or early 30s, did: the scene resembled a slumber party as they swapped stories, giggled and told of their teen-age devotion to Keith Partridge, the oldest boy of television's "The Partridge Family."

Talk about back to the future. In the space of three days on three separate channels last month, it was possible to witness the following: "The Partridge Family," in full-color rerun. "The Partridge Family" again, this time introduced by a fortysomething David Cassidy, wearing a modified shag haircut and driving a psychedelic bus. And then the modern David Cassidy again, this time with a microphone instead of the bus, singing "I Think I Love You." Haven't we already been there, done that?

David Cassidy, who's been in the shipbuilding business since he was a teen-ager in England, was named the new president and chief executive of Baltimore Marine Industries Inc., the Sparrows Point shipyard said yesterday. Cassidy grew up in Newcastle, England, near the border with Scotland and began a five-year shipbuilding apprenticeship when he was 15 years old. He's been in the business ever since, except during his years earning a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering and a master's in fluid mechanics.
