FREDERICK -- An unusual tradition -- the senior-class gag gift -- was perpetuated yesterday at commencement at Hood College, the private, largely women's school here.Each year, graduates bestow on President Martha E. Church an item never revealed until students begin parading across the stage to shake Dr. Church's hand and receive their diplomas. Gifts have included goldfish, marbles, building blocks, flower bulbs and dimes frozen in cubes of ice -- all given by the hundreds.Yesterday's 102nd graduating class surprised Dr. Church, who will retire next month after 20 years as the college's first woman president, with a puzzle of the world, its 1,000 pieces wrapped in bits of green tissue.

Sculpture at Hood The human body combines with landscape forms in Alice Robrish's work, on display at Hood College's Hodson Gallery. Many of the clay sculptures depict the female form - some clay works stand alone while others intertwine with natural objects, such as driftwood. Also included in the show is a six-piece series that explores the progressions caused by aging. Robrish said the series, which begins with a work depicting a 4-year-old and ends with the form of an 80-year-old, shows "the transformations that happen from our youth to our old age."
