Baltimore police commanders met yesterday with a handful of frightened residents from the Druid Heights neighborhood in West Baltimore to ease concerns over two recent fatal shootings that occurred within days on the same city block. Police said they hope to reach out swiftly to the community, and the small gathering at a community center led to a freewheeling conversation about police tactics, training and the intimidation of witnesses who then are reluctant to help authorities with their cases.

It is an old building, built to stay, as contractors are fond of saying, and its services provide many of the good things about life: education, recreation and a special camaraderie that has developed within. The Druid Hill YMCA was once considered a lost cause. The heating system was shut down, lights turned out and doors bolted.For five years, it was abandoned. The black community was frustrated.

But, to his dismay, the fountain - usually in operation from spring through fall - has been dry for months.

On June 2, 1969, five members of a Bureau of Highways electrical crew responding to the newspaper's complaint discovered the body of a 35-year old African-American woman lying face down in about 18 inches of water in a depression inside the top of the fountain. "When the man came down the ladder and said there was a dead woman up there, I thought he was pulling my leg. He said it so nonchalantly.
