My first reaction upon being asked to do half the driving on a cross-country car trip from Baltimore to Palo Alto, Calif., was to cringe."It'll be fun," said my sister who had won a one-year fellowship at Stanford University and couldn't afford to do the civilized thing of shipping her car there. "It will be a wonderful time, and we'll call this our further bonding experience," she said with a straight face.After she upped the ante by offering to be responsible for all lodging, gas, and half of my airfare back to Baltimore, I relented.

EAST PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Not long ago, drug dealers armed with semi-automatic and automatic weapons controlled the streets of this poverty-stricken community.The police department -- understaffed and ineffective -- was paralyzed by investigations into brutality and corruption. By 1992, violence was so rampant that East Palo Alto was branded the murder capital of the nation, with 42 killings in a city of fewer than 24,000 people.In adjoining cities such as Palo Alto and Menlo Park, affluent residents found spent bullets in their yards and talked of building traffic barriers at key intersections to hold back the rising tide of crime.

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Electrical engineering Professor John L. Hennessy, who recently reeled in the largest gift in Stanford's history, was named yesterday as the university's next president. The appointment is expected to position the campus to harvest big donations from alumni and professors who have joined the wealthy in the surrounding Silicon Valley. Hennessy, 47, the university's No. 2 administrator, was a natural choice as an inside candidate, given the enormous pressures on campus presidents to raise large donations.

Joe Donahue never has had much glory or recognition outside the Naval Academy during a highly successful, four-year water polo career. Not that it mattered that much to Donahue, a Navy senior. The St. Mary's High grad has played the sport at a high level for nearly 11 years simply because he loves it. "I have played every day and I'm going to miss the sport," he said during a brief break from exams. "I'll never be at this level again." That's why it was so hard for Donahue to accept the Mids' fate of back-to-back losses in the NCAA water polo final four last weekend at Stanford's Avery Aquatic Center in Palo Alto, Calif.

HARDLY THE PICTURE of a typical ink-stained wretch, Hillary Rodham Clinton, syndicated columnist, was poised and polished and dressed in pink for her appearance before the Newspaper Features Council's meeting in Washington last week.She charmed the room of, in her words, ''fellow journalists,'' giving the audience a witty and personal look at the way she balances her duties as a weekly deadline drone with her life as first lady of the United States.This is a woman who speaks not just in perfect sentences, but in polished paragraphs, with only glancing references to her notes.

EAST PALO ALTO, Calif. -- It's a weekday night in the Silicon Valley. Within a tiny Protestant church, the language of prayer is Spanish with a Mexican accent; the sounds of joy, bird-like warblings, belong to evangelical Protestantism. The church is the northern edge of a new Protestant reformation.Outside the doors of the Apostolic Assembly is the Bayshore Freeway, connecting San Francisco to San Jose. Across the freeway is wealthy Palo Alto, home of Stanford University. All along this stretch of freeway are exits to cyberspace, the greatest concentration of high-tech industry in the world.
