Q: Is that art school Caroline Kennedy is attending in London just a snap course for rich girls? — I,S., Daytona Beach, Fla. A: Not at all. The popular, two- year course offered by Soth- eby's Galleries at $2,000 per year is noted for its tough academic program. Sotheby's directors did bend the rules a bit to allow J ackie' s daughter to by-pass a long waiting list and enroll before she was 22. At least for the moment, Caroline is a hardworking student laboring seriously over the required weekly essays.

Q: Why don't »e see more of that line actor Keir Dullea, whose name 1 could never pronounce? — W.L, Altoona, Pa. A: Keir has had a comfortable if not spectacular career in roles he describes as alternating between fruitcake and beefcake. Currently he's starring with Lee Remick in a London stage revival of "Bus Stop." And as for the pronunciation of his name, Noel Coward once joked to him, "Keir Dullea and gone tomorrow." But the actor would prefer to put it as, "Keir Dullea is here to stay." Q: All Ibe Richard Burton news reminded me of his former wife Sybil. Hasn't she sort of dropped out of sight? — E.K., Athens, Ga. A: Sybil and her actor-husband Jordan Christopher have lost interest in the swinging Manhattan party scene. Sybil's daughter, Kate Burton, is away at college and she and Jordan live a quiet life with daughter Amy in their apartment overlooking Manhattan's Central Park. Q: Our grandchild has been accepted at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Is it true as she says that many great stars have gone to this New York acting school? — E. McD., Camden, S.C. A: Absolutely. The list of famous graduates from this famous 92-year-old school would fill this entire column. Here's a sampling: Grace Kelly, Robert Redford, Lauren Baeall, Kirk Douglas, Cecil B. De Mille and Spencer Tracy. (J: When I was visiting Washington recently 1 went to church and President Ford came in and sat down right in front if me. Is that what the Secret Service calls guarding the President? — E. B., Omaha, N'eb. A: The Secret Service is much less concerned with the President's accidental encounters suchasyoursthanitis with his planned appearances. 'If Ford arrives at a location unannounced the chances of his finding a potential killer there are rather remote. If you had been plotting to meet the President that Sunday you probably would have had no way of determining his whereabouts. Q: What Is UK story about Ken Kesey, who wrote the book "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," not getting any DMney from the hit movie? - Y.E, Rochester, Minn. A: Kesey, who says he's broke and who's certainly miffed at the lack of attention he got during the Academy Award ceremonies, claims he's been had. So the author is suing for 5 percent of the movie's gross plus nearly one million in damages. The film's producers say he got $20,000 for the book in 1963 arid also will get two and a half percent of the producers' profits when they start coming in. Kesey also got paid for the film script he wrote — which was turned down. Robin Adams Sloan welcomes questions from readers.

(AP) — A University of Minnesota professor cautions that many persons who install solar space heating will fail to assess realistically the economics of the new energy form.

Possessing a small amount o! marijuana will no longer be a serious crime. But a five-year prison sentence will mean just that — no early release on parole. A new state Criminal Code, adopted last year and revised this year, takes effect Saturday. It is the first comprehensive rewriting of the criminal statutes since Maine became a state in 1820. "Most of the controversial provisions of the code pertain to the question of what areas of human behavior should be subjected to criminal law," says state Atty. Gen. Joseph E. Brennan. "We tried to get a lot of junk off the codes to make more time available for police to concentrate on genuine antisocial behavior." The code includes such stringent provisions as elimination of parole for sentenced prisoners, mandatory life imprisonment for murder under certain circumstances, and mandatory prison terms -for repeat burglars and criminals who use firearms. Homeowners , would be allowed to take the life of any criminal intruder, even an unarmed one, who refuses to leave after being warned. In eliminating indefinite sentences, the code makes Maine unique in the nation. Judges must fix a sentence at a specific number of years or months, not subject to early release for parole. Prisoners can 'still get some time off for good behavior, however. "Once a prisoner is released, he's released with no strings attached and no close supervision," said Brennan, who Tom Zaworski.Mgr. Phone 736-7441 says parole has proven ineffective in Maine.' Among victimless crimes taken off the books are sexual acts between consenting, but unmarried, adults, such as adultery. Brennan said prostitution is not a major concern of law enforcement officials in this mostly rural state of 1 million. He said he could recall prosecuting only one case in two years of service as county attorney in the area that includes Portland, Maine's largest city. Under Maine's old laws, prostitutes could be failed (or three years.

Those promoting prostitution or compelling others to become prostitutes can still be jailed, however. The code provides fines, but not jail terms or criminal records, for possessing less than one and a half ounces of marijuana. The old law provided fines up to 11,000 and jail terms up lo 11 months. Along Kith mandatory life sentences for murder under sli circumstances, there are mandatory 2%ear sentences for other premeditated murders, mandatory four-year terms for crimes committed with Tire- arms, and mandatory jail terms for second-offense burglary.
