Cheryl Conley's husband was perplexed one night when a television newscast in their temporary Santa Fe, N.M., adobe home kept referring to groups of people as Anglos. "What and who are Anglos?" he asked. Pointing her index finger first at him and then at herself, she silently answered his query. If she had learned just one thing during her eight weeks as a volunteer nurse with the federal Indian Health Services in New Mexico, it was that she and her husband - white, middle-class West Deptford, N.J., residents - were suddenly part of a minority.

To neighbors on 60th Street in West Philadelphia, Mary Gatling is just a pleasant, quiet neighbor and hard-working practical nurse. To the Japanese, however, Mary Gatling is one of the "Super People of the World. " In fact, there is now a handsome plaque on her living room mantel from the Nippon Television Network, officially proclaiming her status as one of the world's "Super People. " "I have the longest arms of any woman in the world," she explained. She says it with mild amusement - in the manner of a person who has learned to accept a thing that can't be changed and is making the most of it. She won the title a couple of years ago, along with a $200 cash prize, when the National Enquirer newspaper ran a contest seeking the man and woman with the longest arms.
