Reporting from Kansas City, Mo. — It's hard to fathom the trajectory of a ball hit from home plate at Liberty High to an air-conditioning unit on the roof of a two-story building behind the left-center field fence. The fence is 375 feet from home. It's another 50 feet up an embankment to the building. The metal air-conditioning unit is about 20 feet in from the edge of the roof. And Albert Pujols hit one up there? Yes he did — as an 18-year-old high school junior.

The proposed Evening High School program--hailed when it was announced last year as an innovative solution to overcrowded schools--is in danger of being canceled if more students do not enroll. Deadline for enrollment is May 15, but so far less than half the minimum of 200 students needed for the program have signed up, school officials said Thursday. The enrollment figure "has not been as high as we had hoped or anticipated," Deputy Supt. Don Empey said. "Still, we're hoping that it will be.

Dusk falls slowly near the southern tip of Puget Sound. But the 230 students of New Century High seem hardly to notice as they sit through lessons well into the night. At the only evening high school in Washington state, classes begin at 2:30 p.m. and end at 8:40 p.m. And students like it that way--from the aspiring obstetrician who wakes before dawn to go to work to the longhaired Led Zeppelin fan who sleeps until afternoon.

Don Duncan, principal of Hoover High School, was selected Friday to head the new Evening High School that will open next September.

Fewer than a dozen such programs exist in the country, and Glendale is one of the first among California school districts to test the idea.
