Move over C3PO, Cornell University computer science geeks have created a robot that can tell if you want a beer and pour it for you. Barristas also may want to wake up and smell the coffee too. This robot can guess whether students are hankering for java and pour it for them. Kodiak the robot was as handy with a lager as with a latte, could open refrigerator and microwave doors and even tidy up, say the human robotics researchers. In tests, the hard-wired humanoid correctly anticipated a student's next move between 57% and 82% of the time, depending on how far into the future it was "anticipating.

News that the activities of the Russian Communist Party have been suspended is heartening. I would like to hope that, inspired by this superb example, we might suspend the activities of the Democratic and Republican parties. ROBERT B. HOLDEN, Manhattan Beach

I understand that the school board has initiated new rules and additional charges for groups using the local school facilities. Schools should be available for constructive recreational activities. As became all too obvious recently, young people must have "good" activities to fill their time. Fees have recently been enacted that are so excessive that many groups can no longer use the school facilities for off-hour sport events and square-dancing. The school system can no longer subsidize these activities, but neither should they be used to raise school funds.
