In writing the other day about a broadcasting company's strange search for werewolves, I observed that Fredric March played a werewolf as Dr. Jekyll in the movie "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," thus at once discomposing both old movie buffs and werewolf buffs. "Although the various werewolf movies do indeed owe something to Robert Louis Stevenson's immortal yarn," writes Marc Russell, "Edward Hyde was hardly a werewolf."

I have a letter from Caltech pointing out that while I have recently written sympathetically about whales, porpoises and other endangered species, I have not said a kind word about werewolves.

Iam in possession of a magazine called UFO, which chronicles the activities of extraterrestrials and those earthlings they have abducted, examined and then returned to the bayous of Louisiana or to the bowels of Topanga. Shirley MacLaine, as I recall, was one of those who spent a pleasant afternoon with people from Zeta Reticuli, but to the best of my knowledge she has not revealed details of the visit.

I am in possession of a Westside magazine called UFO, which chronicles the activities of extraterrestrials and those Earthlings they have abducted, examined and then returned to the bayous of Louisiana or the beaches at Malibu.

Poor Kelly. She loves this guy, but the big lug turns out to be a werewolf. So what does she do, smooch him or shoot him with a silver bullet? Is someone kidding here? After a long delay, Fox launches its Saturday schedule with the two-hour premiere of "Werewolf" at 8 p.m. (Channels 11 and 6), thereafter to be a half-hour series airing at 9 p.m. between the unpremiered "The New Adventures of Beans Baxter" and "Karen's Song." The "Werewolf" opener is a real mouthful.

On Page 1 of the Southeast/Long Beach section, Nov. 6, Jane Addams Elementary School Principal Beryl Brooks was shown looking at the Halloween art to which Donna Voetee, a Long Beach parent, objected. Voetee called it "witchcraft material." On Page 7, same section, same date, an Arcadia couple exchanged formal marriage vows in church, Reverend Simonian doing the honors. The bride was dressed as Frankenstein's beloved; her groom, the monster himself. A costumed werewolf escorted the bride, and the wedding cake was black.
