Thousands of notes--entire forests of hemidemisemiquavers abuzz in activity, thickets of chords and octaves, cascades of arpeggios--tumble out of the piano when Vladimir Viardo plays a recital. And that's only in the first quarter-hour. Besides technique, the Russian pianist has stamina; he can keep up his own, hyperkinetic keyboard pace for long periods.

With high intelligence and deadpan humor, the veteran California-based dance-makers who collaborated on "4 Choreographers / Southern Exposure" in Kaufman Hall at UCLA on Friday used much of their seven-part program to perform dances that doubled as lessons.

The two turtles in the center of the classroom--placidly munching lettuce on a plastic lunch tray--do not immediately appear to have anything to do with teaching literacy skills to the noisy 4-year-olds who surround them. But from the book-lined reading corner in the back of the room to the turtle tray in the front, teachers and administrators at UCLA's Corinne A. Seeds University Elementary School view almost every preschool activity as a way to nurture literacy.

After two years, Castaneda landed a job as a teaching assistant in a church's bilingual child-care center, then worked her way up to teaching toddlers in Spanish.

Re "Plan to Dismantle 4 UCLA Schools Protested," Oct. 15: Despite the ongoing budget crisis, UCLA Chancellor Charles E. Young's intention to shut down the master's and doctoral programs in library and information sciences is shortsighted and dangerous. Now, more than ever, as business, governments and individuals need access to relevant, timely, global information, it seems ironic that Young is considering shutting down these programs. California needs a professional work force to manage its information resources, now and in the future.

Digging through household trash is usually the province of cheap private eyes and tabloid reporters. But for 70 UCLA Extension students, it's a summer job unlike any other.
