When Acelia, 9, is in the kitchen, she is creative, cheerful and energetic. "I'll make an everything salad," she'll say. Then she throws lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, celery and anything in her path in the bowl. She also makes corn bread and barbecue sauce. When it's mealtime, she always declares: "This is the best I ever had," and unless the food has a lid on it, she'll polish off the leftovers. Acelia lives in a group home with nine other children. She has lived in several foster homes.

Nose to lip. Lip to nose. Nose to lip. Chris Wyszynski was displaying his usually quick hands, but this was in the locker room, after Episcopal Academy had defeated La Salle, 66-50, in a Seagull Classic XVII semifinal at St. Joseph's Fieldhouse last night. One second, an ice pack was pressed against a gash at the bridge of Wyszynski's nose. The next, it was soothing a cut on his lip. "I think I need another ice pack," Wyszynski said, finally. Wyszynski, perhaps the hardest-working 6-2 center in high school basketball, always needs an ice pack.

The original Broadway production of "The Wiz," plagued by a slew of problems, nearly closed out of town. It changed directors and opened at New York's Majestic Theater early in January of 1975, managing to hang on by the skin of its teeth until a heavy ad-and-hype campaign plus word of mouth finally pulled it around. It ultimately picked up seven Tony Awards and ran for four years on Broadway. "The Wiz" has enjoyed a ridiculously healthy afterlife. It is revived with stunning regularity - a full-scale production last played here in March of 1984 - and this week it is back again, for much too brief a run at the Merriam.

Call her Miss Ross, and do it quickly. At the Mann Center on Sunday night, legendary diva Diana Ross - the rare figure for whom neither word is an exaggeration - breezed through a selection of hits in barely an hour and a quarter, leaving ample time for cocktails before it was time to relieve the baby-sitter. Ross' set, part of her In the Name of Love tour, featured numerous costume changes that further cut into the ex-Supreme's time on stage. Taking the stage in what might have been an aquamarine shower curtain, she changed colors like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 's Violet Beauregarde, always bringing along a matching hand fan. Although signs at the entrance warned of strobe lights and "haze effects," the evening's technical flourishes were minimal, but when you've got Diana Ross wrapped in tulle, what more do you need?

Nine-year-old Sean O'Brien sums up the longevity of the Trapper Keeper notebook, which once again is among the supplies every cool student just had to bring back to school this year. "They hold more stuff," he says, in a tone that implies the answer is obvious. His mother chimes in: "The covers are cool. " The plastic, fold-over Trapper Keeper; "marble" tablets; and anything sporting the picture of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are among the most popular items kids prodded their parents into snatching up for another year of school.
