A PLEA FOR NUCLEAR DISARMAMENT: United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan warned of the effects of global nuclear proliferation and urged nations to move toward disarmament Tuesday at Princeton University's Richardson Auditorium. The speech was the second of four public addresses Mr. Annan is using to present his platform as he prepares to step down as secretary-general in December. Mr. Annan also received an undergraduate recognition, the Crystal Tiger Award, for serving as an "agent of progress."

Concerns over police conduct and public health took center stage Monday as Princeton Borough officials held their first open, public dialogue in an ongoing series of "Open Doors" community meetings.

Check your calendars. This holiday season has more shopping days than normal.

That's because an odd kismet composed of a November with five Thursdays and an outright balmy first month of autumn has not only extended the standard holiday shopping season, but helped attract the crowds of shoppers that descended on Princeton last Friday.

Local merchants point out, however, that most people who prefer in-town shopping, leaving the big mobs to the big-box stores, are doing their shopping slowly, deliberately, and that there's no one magic day where the crowds are overwhelming.
