I had hoped that a video of a juvenile court hearing would help explain how a teenager with a long criminal record who had just been arrested in a drug bust could be sent home from a detention center only to be charged with killing a man two hours later in the front seat of a Buick Park Avenue. Unfortunately, what I saw not only fails to explain why state officials freed 17-year-old Maurice Brown, but it raises new questions about the case, while revealing proposed procedural changes that would make it easier for more young offenders to avoid detention.

"The Country Girl" is atypical Clifford Odets. The relationships it depicts are personal, not political, and instead of using the theater as a soapbox, it uses the theater as its setting.In other words, this is one of those plays about playmaking which theater people love to perform. That may help explain why the 1950 script has had several New York revivals in recent years, and why the Vagabond Players chose it as part of the 75th anniversary season.Directed by Miriam Bazensky, the cast does an able job weaving Odets' intricate, well-observed web of human relations.

LAYTONSVILLE - In golden light that fell through stained-glass windows, parishioners of St. Bartholomew's Church prayed for their former rector yesterday. Their text came from the Book of Common Prayer: "Oh blessed Lord ... look with compassion upon those who through addiction have lost their health and freedom." Though shocked and angry, members of this small-town Episcopal congregation are trying to look with compassion on the Rev. Travers Clement Koerner, their rector for two years, who spent Sunday locked up in the Montgomery County Detention Center on a $2 million bond.

Is it that difficult for energy and intelligence to co-exist on-screen? You Got Served has plenty of the former, and barely one scintilla of the latter. As a pop-culture study of street dancers, those gravity-defying human rubber bands whose gyrations fly in the face of both physics and biology, it's endlessly fascinating. But as a film, it's nothing, a series of dance sequences unimaginatively staged and listlessly directed, strung together with melodramatic cliches, leaden dialogue and trite plot devices.

ATHENS, Greece - In 1801, Thomas Bruce, the seventh Earl of Elgin and British ambassador to Constantinople, hit upon what he considered a splendid idea. The ancient Greek temple of the Parthenon - among the most famous buildings in the world - was decorated with a series of 17 marble figures and a 525-foot-long frieze depicting the ancient Greek gods and heroes. They didn't seem to be doing anybody any good at the 2,500-year-old edifice atop the Acropolis. So why not hammer them off and transport them to a place where they would be better appreciated - that is, England's green and pleasant land?

ATHENS, Greece - They convened in Greece last week from more than a dozen countries to search for a way to "right a historic wrong" or, in a contrary view, "to open a Pandora's box of cultural nationalism." The occasion was the first international conference on "The Restitution of the Parthenon Marbles." The participants represented more than a dozen countries - all those of Western Europe, the United States, Australia, Canada, Israel, India, Japan and, of course, Greece. The bare facts of the issue are these: In 1801, Thomas Bruce, seventh earl of Elgin, became ambassador to the Ottoman Empire (which then controlled Greece)
