John E. Mohamed, a longtime city public school educator who had been principal of Southeast Middle School for nearly two decades, died of pneumonia Wednesday at Hanover Hall, a Hanover, Pa., rehabilitation center. The former Northwood resident was 76. The son of a merchant seaman and housekeeper, he was born in Newport News, Va. Mr. Mohamed moved with his family as a youngster to West Baltimore because of his father's sailing schedule. He was a 1952 graduate of Frederick Douglass High School, and after graduating from what is now Morgan State University with a bachelor's degree in health and life sciences in 1957, Mr. Mohamed began teaching science at Hampstead Hill Junior High School.

Glenn McCown is a Baltimore eighth-grader who is keenly aware of the pressure on students his age to have sex."Your friends pump you up to lose what you have," said McCown, a student at Southeast Middle School. "They say, 'Go ahead, it doesn't hurt.' Especially if you're a virgin."Then, when you do lose it, you realize you should have kept it."He is convinced that, at his stage in life, "the best sex is no sex."That view got some powerful support yesterday from a pair of high school students who spoke to McCown's health class about teen-age sexuality and the value of abstinence.

Pupils at Southeast Middle School returned yesterday expecting the same demoralized teaching staff, drab classrooms and chaos in the halls they had left in June. But all was new, from the floor tile to the principal. "I have never seen it run so smoothly," said Marsha Grant, a parent and past critic of the school, who recalled last year's chaos of seventh-graders running from classroom to classroom. "This is the quietist I have ever seen it." The same was true at Northern High School, where first day mayhem was replaced by relative calm and the new principal showed students a new order.
