The past few weeks have been rough on Marin Alsop. Late last month, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's music director gathered with family and friends in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., at the bedside of her mother. Ruth Alsop, whose career included playing cello in the New York City Ballet Orchestra for more than 50 years, died Jan. 23 at the age of 82. Eleven days later, the conductor was back in Baltimore at another bedside, her father's. Lamar Alsop, who was concertmaster of that same ballet orchestra for more than three decades, died Feb. 3 at the age of 85.

Since then, by some estimates, we have reduced the number of poor in this country from one in four to about one in six. But more than 46 million Americans continue to live below the poverty line and more than half of them - 25 million - are women and children. Today Mr. Shriver's daughter, Maria, continues her father's campaign with a new report on women on the cusp of poverty, about whom she writes, "Many of these women feel they are a single incident - one broken bone, one broken-down car, one missed paycheck - away from the brink.

She is 71 years old, and she has no memory of his voice. But that was her father on the recording, and he called her his "Margaret Ann. " She was glad she was alone when she heard him speak, she said. It was just such a surprise. His voice was so clear, he sounded so much like the rest of his Catonsville family. He spoke slowly and gently. He sounded calm. Sgt. Cody L. Wolf, a turret gunner, died when his plane was shot down over Germany on Jan. 11, 1944.
