Woodall depicted at home, leading a - teacher-training workshop and in the classroom says that she's glad she took part in , the documentary. "Because it does put a focus on education . . . and on the important role of science from the very early grades," she says. For the children, anticipation of the documentary's debut has been building for months. "They have been asking me ever single week, 'when is it going to be .on? When is'it going to be on?,' " Woodall says. "Probably the hardest thing has been waiting all this time."

In addition to his filmmaking duties and research in the field of sleep deprivation, Maas teaches the largest single lecture course in the nation. The introductory psychology course, which he has taught since 1964, packs 2,000 students into Cornell's Bailey Hall -three times a week. He says that some 200 hopefuls are turned away each year for lack of space. Maas chalks up the course's sue- ' cess to his conversational style and love and command of his subject matter. He has long used visual aids in his teaching, and believes that the multitude of slides and film clips that he uses' in his lectured bring a real-world flavor to the class. "You're teaching in the largest . context you could," Maas .says of the immediacy of using sight and sound in teaching. "It's not just in the classroom, but beyond the classroom." While Maas says he has never felt burned-out from teaching the same course year after year, he acknowl At New Medico,.' therapists hoped his letter jacket, medals and other high school memorabilia :would trigger memories. . , "He felt like his. life had been stolen from him," said Ann Cloud, admissions coordinator ; at New Medico.

He had read about powdered reindeer horns in a magazine and sent away for a ship--ment. (The price was $300.) You said it was a racket. Well, Ann, I want to tell you it worked. Ever since "John" has been taking that stuff our sex life has been a lot livelier. What do you say now? Caracas, Venezuela Dear Friend: I say congratulations. If your sex life is livelier it's because John believes in "that stuff" which, according to my authorities, is worthless. But as the saying goes "Whatever turns you on . . ." "'.-;'". ... Dear Ann Landers: We live on a private road with 10 other families. Except for our next-door neighbor, everyone contributes to maintain the road (paving, snow removal, pruning, etc.). Whenever we approach the people next door about contributing ., their fair share, they become extremely unpleasant. So far they have yet to give a dime although they enjoy all the benefits made possible by the rest of us. The immediate .problem involves their Halloween display which usually stays up until Thanksgiving. If it were only jack-o'-lanterns, scarecrows and witches, we wouldn't mind, but they have assembled a chilling facsimile of a graveyard, with tombstones every- where. A skeleton hangs from a tree and a hand comes out of the ground giving this area an eerie and frightening appearance.

For example, do the floodlights keep you up at night? If these people are within their legal rights, you . might consider building a high and thick wall between your property and theirs.
