During the fall semester of 1950, St. John's College starred as the set of a glam Hollywood movie. But the studious college was totally out of character in Saturday's Hero, starring John Derek. As The Sun reported from Annapolis, "Hollywood came here today and temporarily transformed quiet academic St. John's College into a rah-rah school for playboys." "St. John's withdrew from inner-collegiate athletics a dozen years ago to encourage its students to concentrate on Great Books ... But today, St. John's had a bigtime college football star.

MARDI GRAS will be nearly two weeks past, but that won't matter when the St. John Christian Day School holds a Mardi Gras festival at 7 p.m. March 15. The evening will begin with a concert by the Young Audiences of America Jazz Ensemble - part of the Maryland contingent of the national cultural arts organization Young Audiences of America. Founded in Baltimore in 1950, the organization has grown to 31 chapters in 22 states and the District of Columbia - its twofold purpose to see that every child in America has an opportunity to experience and gain insight to the arts, and provide career opportunities for artists and performers.

We're sitting in our office the other day when an e-mail arrives from the New Museum in New York informing us of an upcoming exhibit of still photographs by Baltimore's own filmmaker, John Waters. The message informs us that the exhibition opens Feb. 7 - today - coinciding with John Waters Day in Baltimore. Hmmm, we think, it's gratifying to share the work of a favorite son with the rest of the world, but what's this about a John Waters Day? We have one of those? Just as we begin pulling out our calendars to see if we've overlooked a chance to celebrate something, another e-mail arrives.

Alayna Newsome beat her alarm clock by a half-hour and woke up at 6:57 a.m. energized and excited. Even though it would be seven hours until the camera would roll, the St. John's Parish Day School third-grader was pumped. Alayna, of Woodbine, had spent the past week combing Web sites for current events and perfecting her poise as she prepared to read a news script in front of her classmates. This year, third-graders at the private Ellicott City school have gained a greater appreciation for broadcast journalists, current events and public speaking through a required newscast presentation.

The idea for the alphabet garden at St. John's Parish Day School in Ellicott City really began with the meadow that pupils had created three years earlier. The children were upset that sand from the nearby sandbox would escape the playground when it rained and run across a driveway and into the soil of the meadow, damaging the plants that had been growing there. So last year, the second-graders at the private school took action. In science class, they came up with the idea of positioning a screen along the playground fence to hold in the sand.

The boy loves games of chance. He loves slot machines and playing cards and instant-win lottery tickets. He learned at an early age to count coins, and to bet them. He learned in the hospital that money comes in get-well cards.Michael Hirschbeck learned to play gin in the hospital, too. His father taught him, during the long weeks of waiting, between the chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant and seizures and pneumonia and days when he was too sick to even eat a cup of ice chips. He never asked a lot of questions, even the day his parents told him he had the same disease as his older brother, who was already dying, and that it would take his baby sister's bone marrow to save his life.
