The Jewish Americans Three Centuries of Jewish Voices in America By Beth S. Wenger Doubleday / 388 pages / $40 The product of a working-class family from the Bronx, Bess Myerson declined to change to a less Jewish-sounding name for the Miss America contest of 1945. "Now, Besseleh," her father repeated, "don't forget who you are out there." When she became the first Jew to wear the crown, Myerson gazed at the crowd at the Warner Theater "and saw all the Jewish people hugging each other, congratulating each other, as though they had won."

Last week Jerry Wenger, former Columbia resident and former host of The Next SuperStock national radio show, received a well-deserved reward for a prominent career in securities analysis: 46 months in a federal prison. "I expect it to be a camp," says his lawyer. Better it should be a supermax slammer with peeling paint, but we'll take it. Crime occurred, prosecutors bestirred themselves, a jury did the right thing, and a judge sealed the deal Jan. 28. High time, too. Wenger has been, shall we say, a person of interest to the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Justice Department for years.

A Baltimore firefighter is challenging a department rule that all firefighters maintain Advanced Life Support certification, taking his case before a federal arbitrator yesterday. The closed-door hearing involving Ryan Wenger, an emergency-vehicle driver, centered on whether firefighters who obtain a higher rank should have to remain certified in advanced-level life saving skills, a department policy that has drawn the ire of the city firefighters unions. Wenger and the head of one of Baltimore's fire unions say firefighters who become officers or drivers have added responsibilities during emergency medical calls and should not have to focus on medical care.

In a former hair salon in a strip mall in Dundalk, a woman is screaming. It's not the bats, the grunting zombie or the faceless, blood-spattered nurses that make her holler. Kim Yates is yelling because some numbskull sat on what appears to be a pile of intestines. "This place is a mess," says Yates, shaking her wild mass of dark brown curls. Mark Roby, a 32-year-old contractor, licks fake blood from his fingers and looks at her thoughtfully. "It's supposed to be," he says. Many people say they love Halloween - they carve a pumpkin, stretch some spider webs across a bush and maybe stir up a pitcher of witch's brew.

"I gave everything I could to save her that day," said Emergency Vehicle Driver Ryan Wenger, in his first public account of how Racheal M. Wilson died Feb. 9 inside a vacant rowhouse on South Calverton Road. "I think about it nonstop," he said, recalling efforts to pull Wilson through a third-floor window.

For the cadets of Academy Class 19, the late Friday morning training exercise was a chance to escape their classrooms and battle a fire in a real building. They gathered at 145 S. Calverton Road, a run-down rowhouse long abandoned by its owner, boarded up and claimed by the city. Instructors ignited seven fires on wooden pallets scattered inside the home, in hallways, bedrooms and closets. Fire Apprentice Racheal M.
