WELEETKA, Okla. - Two guns and likely two people were involved in the shooting deaths of two young girls found on a dirt road near a tiny eastern Oklahoma community, investigators said yesterday. "Typically you don't have one person using two weapons," said Jessica Brown, a spokeswoman for the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. The types of weapons used were not released. Each girl was shot multiple times in the head and chest, according to the state medical examiner's office. Although a complete autopsy report has not been finished, investigators have said that sexual assault appears unlikely because the girls were clothed and had only been missing for half an hour.

RESCUES: THE LIVESOF HEROES.Michael Lesy.Farrar, Straus & Giroux.213 pages. $18.95.It might be a good idea to read the epilogue of "Rescues: ThLives of Heroes" before its prologue. In it, Michael Lesy, author of seven books, including the classic "Wisconsin Death Trip," examines neurological and sociological reasons for empathy and altruism. Most germane to the nine rescues described in this book, he examines the nature of heroism."Heroism is a conjunction of opposites," he says. It is both an act of self-sacrifice and an act of self-reclamation.

How invaluable an organization Pro Musica Rara is was demonstrated yesterday at the Baltimore Museum of Art in the last work on the program. The piece was Georg Philipp Telemann's Quartet in D Minor for two flutes, bassoon and harpsichord-and-cello continuo. This was one of those occasions when the argument for original instruments in early music never seemed stronger. The woody tones of these instruments at their lower pitch made the music sound unusually inviting and accessible. This listener is willing to bet the excellent musicians -- flutists Nancy Andrews and Sara Landgren, bassoonist Phillip Kolker, cellist Allen Whear and Amy Rosser -- spent much rehearsal time together.

Sue V. Rosser was aghast earlier this year when, at a private conference she attended with about three dozen others, the president of Harvard University openly questioned the scientific aptitude of women. She was stunned by Lawrence H. Summers' comments. They were based on flawed, 30-year-old data and prepared in advance - not an errant comment made off the cuff, she said. Even more disheartening to her was the effect the publicity, and ensuing controversy, could have on young women thinking of making science, math or engineering their life's work.
