ONE OF Jimmy Carter's first decisions as president-elect in 1976 was to send his 9-year-old daughter, Amy, to a public school in Washington, D.C., whose student body was largely black.It was regarded at the time as a highly symbolic act, showing his concern for the ideas he had advocated as a candidate for president.His Democratic Party had long been a staunch supporter of integration and public education. That is, Democrats in government in Washington supported this in principle. Most of the senators and representatives who had consistently voted for busing and other social and education programs that had helped turn most urban school systems black and poor chose, as Bill Clinton has just done for daughter Chelsea, to send their children to predominantly white private schools in the city or predominantly white public schools in wealthy suburbs.

Frances Sidwell Benson, who had taught students at Towson High School in the 1920s and later was a homemaker, died in her sleep Monday at Commonwealth Care Center in Fairfax, Va. The longtime Northwood resident was 106. She was born Frances Sidwell in Johnsville, Frederick County, the daughter and granddaughter of physicians. "She used to ride with her father in a horse and buggy when he went to visit patients," said her daughter, Frances B. Pearce of McLean, Va. In a family memoir Mrs. Benson wrote in 1974, she recounted what life was like for her father, who had to ride 16 miles to Frederick to procure quinine and opium, the two most popular drugs of the day. "Medicine was not a profession to follow if one wanted to become wealthy, particularly in Johnsville where there were so many poor people, and, of course, grandfather and father never charged them.

Severn led from start to finish before handing St. Paul's a 75-48 defeat.
