Baltimore's pioneer and forgotten professional social worker, Mary Ellen Richmond, who has been compared to her contemporary, Jane Addams of Chicago's Hull House, is buried on a slight knoll in Loudon Park Cemetery. Carved on the white marble tombstone is the Family Welfare Association's emblem and motto: "Light from hand to hand. Life from age to age." Richmond originated the casework method used by professional social workers. As she described it, such work "has for its immediate aim the betterment of individuals or families, one by one, as distinguished from their betterment in the mass."

A weekend water main break has forced the closing of the intersection of Gay Street and North Avenue, and Lake Clifton-Eastern High School about five blocks away. The break in the 32-inch main occurred Sunday afternoon, but alternate supply lines enabled the city to reroute water to nearly all affected customers, said Public Works spokesman Kurt L. Kocher. The exceptions, he said, were the Clifton Park golf course and the school because they did not have an alternative line. Lake Clifton-Eastern was closed yesterday and will remain closed today, said city schools spokeswoman Vanessa C. Pyatt.

Eastern High School's pink marble likeness of a good shepherd, which spent two decades at another campus, has returned to its original home in Waverly. The Eastern High Alumni Association donated $20,000 to have the statue disassembled and moved this spring from the merged Lake Clifton-Eastern High School, where it had spent the last 22 years. "This statue was the site of the first kiss and the first cigarette for a lot of us," recalled Peg McAllen, a 1944 graduate of Eastern. The piece, formally known as the Lizette Woodworth Reese Memorial - also called the Good Shepherd Statue - will be rededicated at a public ceremony Monday at what is now the Johns Hopkins at Eastern campus.
